Quote:Hey Ted,A bit off-topic but are there any other fees involved with Granite Gap beyond the initial lot fee? E.g. monthly maint fees, etc. How do utility bills work?Thanks. Really interested in this, can't believe the price of $2500 for a lot!

I lost count of my scopes. Now I just want mobility. I came, I saw, I bought some interesting accessories, and put names to faces: NEAF 2012, ASAE 2012, SWAP 2013, ASAE 2013.
Indiana for two more weeks...
