Hi guys - current, former, future Texans pls weigh in. My wife and I need desperately to get out of CA for all the reasons you could possibly think of. We were in process of designing and pre construction on a home on a lake in the Treasure Valley (near Boise) ID. After 4 1/2 months of designing but pre escrow on the actual lot and start of construction some things were occurring that made me uncomfortable and I decided to bail before getting to deep and no option of backing out. It was a dream home on a lake and Frank Lloyd Wright completely custom design - but business is business. So now we’re reconsidering that area and want to go on a scouting trip to the greater Austin area. Completely different in every way I know. I used to go there on business but that’s been 10 years past now. I’m now retired and my lovely wife is a mid-career RN. We/I need some degree of cosmopolitan more for her, outdoor life is very important. Natural beauty is important. Weather is also of importance. Being able to build a new social circle - which with SoCal culture is historically a bad joke. I want to live in a free state where the constitution is still revered. Unlike here where they regularly and repeatedly walk all over it. I’m asking for anyone that has any opinion, insight or other to weigh in and share their thoughts. Thanks for any and all!
