This site namespace will be a shared “vision board” and “repository” for an abode that Mike and Mona can live in to be near family in the Pacific Northwest.
This namespace will be modified as ideas and considerations are captured. These snips, stories, comments and other pieces of information can be listed, sorted, expanded and discarded to take the visions to reality. The namespace will contain links and comments to information included.
A ToDo page captures ideas and actions to further pursue to make this vision real.
A Contacts page contains info about stakeholders.

Tenants could be students (single, Male or Female), young adults (couples, mixed), single men, single women, families (with kids), empty nesters and elderly if suites can be mixed and matched with common bath - kitchen - living - parking - yard spaces.
The vision of or abode may consist of apartment unit(s), Auxilliary Dwelling Unit(s) (ADU), rental space in home(s) or RV unit(s) that offer housing with income. Other possibilities include horse property to lease, vacation rental or B&B, business space or mobile homes. This goal gives us a place to call home, within a two hour drive to Spokane and Coeur d' Alene, to be near parents, kids and grand-kids, by Mike's early-retirement in 2025.
This vision will include the: 'why', 'what', 'who' / 'where' / 'when', 'how' and 'how-much' of ideas that can be executed to realize an abode for us that gives purpose to the goal. By that I mean we will consider options for a time and then select a plan to give us a comfortable and safe home with income to carry it forward by covering costs. We are experienced sharing property with tenants and the PNW needs housing, business, storage and farm spaces.
Information item references will be listed below. No particular format is imposed as these will be added in no particular order, only as they are identified. The DokuWiki allows info to be added spontaneously, when it is identified. Compiling, organizing, evaluating and deciding on actions will come later and documenting those steps will appear on other pages.
Numerous areas should be considered to find those with access to services such as medical, libraries, fire protection, groceries, hardware and transit to rail and airports.
Area within one- to two-hour drive time to family
Post Falls and Morane Prairie area where new developments are underway
A group of units that use common kitchen, bath, HVAC, plumbing, exterior walls and landscape with separate private spaces could be designed.
