Winter Driving Advice
This has been a very cold winter with more snow that we have had in years. With the snow comes lots of ice and frozen snow. There have been about a dozen accidents due to SPEED on these icy road conditions. PLEASE SLOW DOWN!!
Several vehicles have gone into the bar ditches, causing front end damage and with
that a costly bill for the wrecker to come out and also for any repairs that will
be needed. Please use good judgment when traveling on icy-

THINKING ABOUT BUILDING?
Choices, Choices, Choices-
There are many types of homes to think about: Brick, block, wood frame, log, Deltec, dome, straw bale, adobe, metal and modular. All of these building types are here in Timberlake. Just a reminder here, that we do not allow trailers for a residence, as per our CC&R’s.
Do your homework on design, type and site layout. Spend time looking at your property as to views, access, water runoff, sunlight and where the well and septic system will be located.
There are many good contractors in the area, ask around and get recommendations. Understand there is a big difference between a firm bid and an estimate. A bid is what the cost will be. An estimate is an approximate cost and can end up costing more. Any bid should not include the word "estimate" unless it specifically spells out what part is estimated. The contractor can ask for more money on an estimate and might file a lien if an agreement cannot be reached
Get a clear understanding with your contractor(s) as any changes or add on's will cost money, so chose wisely. Remember to obtain the proper building permit(s) and get you plans approved by the TRLA building committee, they
Choices will be many: roof material, colors, building type, and plumbing materials (remember it gets cold here!). Plan ahead as to size and electric requirements. Check with Continental Divide as to transformer size and what they will want as to meter pole location, etc. I recommend a 200 amp meter service panel as it will be expensive to go bigger later. I like Pex for plumbing as it is forgiving in case it freezes. Try to design your plumbing so that you can have a single drain point for ease in winterization. Go overboard on insulation as it will make your home more comfortable and reduce heating costs. Ask around and see what others would do different.
Plan ahead as to septic system size (will you be expecting lots of company?) too small will cause problems.
Need to clear your property or trim up trees? There is a burn pile for Landowners use. Please use it as burning on your property is not recommended and you certainly do not want to destroy the beauty here.
Enjoy your journey and have patience and you will end up with a home to make your dreams come true!!
