More Neighbors Have Moved In

And here we go again. Looks like the last house that was built is now occupied. Saw the U-Haul in the driveway yesterday. So far, I see two adults, two kids and one dog. At least I have a fence. We will see how it goes. I know I sound so unsociable. But with so many houses built so quickly, it has been a lot to take in. The photo shows what my deck view used to be a few years ago. See the nice green fields in the back? And all the corn growing. There used to be cows grazing there at the dairy farm. My cow neighbors have all been replaced with houses and people. Nothing last forever I suppose. I just hope for no wild parties. Have a good evening everyone.

It will probably be OK. I have a family with two kids that moved in next door a couple of years ago..Honestly, I rarely hear them. If you really want to be bold you could introduce yourself and bring them a pie or something..

It will be fine but I am talking about maybe 30-35 new homes total.

@CarolDM Yeah, that is a lot...they were talking about buidling "affordable homes" in the area behind where I live, but that has fallen by the wayside. I am not sorry.

That looks beautiful! Do you want me to stop by with a fifth of single malt Scotch and my .22 and convince your new neighbors that you're crazy? I could shout something about "damn zombies!" as I shot at nothing and hurt nobody. As I mentioned, I'm considering a career change.

A few years ago that's what my view from my deck looked like too. Now I have houses behind me but thankfully there's no more building in my community. Hope those new neighbors are nice

@Marilynda1225 it is still fine if there are more houses but the green cover remains. In Delhi, I have seen that the green cover almost totally went away in some cases and small playgrounds became car parking areas. That decreases green cover, increases pollution and also means less space for kids to play.

Landscapes can change drastically once the developers move in. I hope your neighbours are 'neighbourly'.

The lot beside our property was bought early this year and they are erecting a concrete fire wall. Fortunately the work had stopped for some months.

I also like space bewteen my neighbors. I see area's here were there once was a lot of land between houses, you could drive down the road and see a house and it might be half a mile before you would see another one. Now these same areas have housing development in them, when each house maybe 20 foot apart.

I guess population is growing and people are trying to find places like yours that looks open, peaceful and with lots of spaces to build on. I think time will come those greenery will slowly be replaced with houses until the place becomes urbanized already.

@CarolDM It can’t be stopped since I guess most local politicians would love to have his place populated means more taxes for his jurisdiction.

I know how you feel with the former field that was filled with cows in now ancient history. It appears that the vacant home next to my current home will have a new neighbor since the grass has been cut and the light is on to front yard. The new neighbor seems to be a nice person.

@CarolDM That is true since the former Canal Zone in Panama has changed a lot with the new owners of businesses down in the region changing a bowling alley into a café and a former theater now playing plays instead of movies.
