The Beginning

So here we are, about to start Our Home. We have already done quite a bit of work to get here. Most of this work is documented in the Lot 24 Turtle Pond Court pages on this website. It all starts with the selection of a homesite. A homesite can be created in one of several ways. A platted lot, a site condominium or by a metes and bounds description. Most people refer to a single family homesite as a “Lot” and we will use that term for Our Home even though it is actually a “unit” in a site condominium development called Turtle Lake and it is in a section of Turtle Lake that has been called “The Pond”. You can see the Turtle Lake Community here and The Pond and our Lot 24 here.

Why Turtle Lake? We wanted to build Our Home in a unique community that features a convenient location with access to major transportation, high quality amenities, open space, privacy and security. we also wanted to associate with a developer with vision and an ability to execute. We chose The Pond because it includes turnkey professional maintenance of the homesite from lawn care to flowers, shrubs, irrigation and snow removal to produce a groomed and manicured look. The appeal is to anyone from a busy family to empty nesters and singles with priorities other than cutting their lawn and shoveling snow. See more about Turtle Lake and Victor International here.
