Rental Resort: The Great Outdoors RV Resort, LLC (Phase 1)

I purchased the raw land in Jan of 2000. I immediately started building the park. I had previously owned a formidable construction business in Vermont. During this time I built a RV park as one of my many projects, and successfully ran and sold it in the subsequent years. I moved my heavy equipment down to the Heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and I have spent the last ten years working on this project, with my brother, in order to bring it to fruition.

We partnered with our neighbor across the road and together we built a sewer line, approximately one and a half miles long, which ties into the Town of Franklin sewer system. The cost of this work was just under $600,000 ( We paid half ) and mostly paid for it out of pocket. The majority of this work was completed in 2004.

In 2005 I worked to finish the infrastructure on this phase of the park, which include;

 The Sewer With 16 Manholes
 The water system at this time served 94 lots including a health dept specified grouted well, pump house, water pumps and a 13000 gal water tank.
 We also built a 2600 sq. ft. store/office building
 A 3400 sq. ft. two story building which includes a club house with two small kitchens, a commercial laundry, exercise room and 5 family styled rest rooms.
 An outside swimming pool (within the Rental Park) with pump house, fence and patio area.
 We paved approximately 3/4 of a mile of roads within the resort.
 Installed all of the electrical for the park including wiring the buildings, installing pedestals at the sites, street lights and pool lights. All underground wires are protected in conduit.
 We graveled the sites, seeded the common areas and landscaped around the buildings and installed walkways.
I should mention that all of the work done on this project was designed and inspected by a licensed NC engineer.
