PostSubject: [HHH] Horizon House Hunters!   Sat Oct 27, 2012 1:25 pm

Got the idea from one of move's posts about a house in horizon and I think I found a suitable location within horizon too. If anyone else finds a house they like or in my case think it's a big joke feel free to post (or don't and this thread fades away into the abyss of nothingnessness) Smile

So when I was looking for a home I thought a good place to work on the car would be away from the hustle and bustle of the horizon festival so I could get some work done on the car. So now I show you the magnificent shack in the middle of nowhere I found!


Picture was taken with some snobby real estate agents car who could hardly be bothered to come out with me to look at the place! Let me tell you guys there ain't shit around here. There is however a large dirt patch good for drifting perhaps and some curvy backroads which will help with the testing. Just down the road is some red rock open air theater thing but it's completely dead there as well!


Included for free with the purchase of said shack is some radioactive waste dumped by the government. Hey, one man's radioactive waste is another man's prototype super fuel Twisted Evil

Well, I stumbled around a great house for myself as I am a car collector. It was nice enough to me that I had to get a pic of the agents car with it parked by the garage just to see what my car would look like. It was a nice view, but with all the money I put down on the house, it looks like I'm going to have a low budget car atm LOL.


PS: I had ran out of my bed just to call dibs on this house LMFAO!!!!

As someone else said it was a pre order bonus car. It was bought with my LCE tokens since I couldn't find any other use for them. I don't think it would be a car you win seeing as its a pre order car I could be wrong though.

I woke up early this morning and hit the road to find a house in Colorado.


First one I checked out was this property, not too far off the beaten path but secluded with some trees surrounding it. I like the idea of a garage twice the size of the house but overall I found it a little too small.



I did go check out the the Gladstone area (almost every house can be approached here) and man those are some nice houses. A little more than I want to spend though, and I don't really want to have to deal with the gravel and dirt roads all the time in the neighborhood.


I snapped this photo on the way from Gladstone to Eagle Ridge



Eagle Ridge is nice and scenic, but I worry about tourist traffic with the geyser attractions and the tree tunnel.


You might be wondering about my car. Like how I got my hands on such a sweet ride. I found it in a barn out here the last time I was out here for buisness. Then this guy fixed it up for free and just GAVE IT TO ME. I know, right!? People are just HEMORRHAGING cash out here and just giving it away. Oh the upgrades on the ride you say? Yeah, they were like $50. I KNOW! I can't believe it either. You really need to come see for yourself.


By then it was getting to be near lunch time and I was starving, I hit the highway and blasted up to Carson City.

Stopped for gas on the way into the city



I found this building that matched my car, haha.



Figured I might as well pick up some new threads and a flatbill cap, BRO.



Bunker, well, there are houses there, but not really ones I would want to live in. lol. Some good photogenic locations though. I heard there was a small town further north called Beaumont that I should check out.


When I got to Beaumont, it didnt take long to explore the whole town. I really like this place. I managed to find 2 houses next to each other, not on a main street but down an alley.




I really liked the 2nd house. Good location, not on a main street, not far from the shops, not far from an outpost, and I really like the small town vibe. I was able to get in touch with the realtor and purchase the house on the spot because Im LIKE A BOSS.

I still had some good daylight left so I headed southwest.


LIKE A DAM.




Headed home.

Yeah you did, I just didn't know it was the same house I picked since I took the picture from a different angle ;]
I'll move to the house further up the hill, will take pictures this afternoon.

Haha, roommates is pretty funny as well.
I'll go make some pictures today, I'll be home in about 45 minutes.

@Cougar:
You wanted the house next to Legend, right?
Also, I think I nailed the test.. Fuck yeah for learning in trains while letting Horizon take over important time at home xD

My no-good real estate agent showed me a house that was already sold..
I decided to boot his ass out of business and handle my own.
I've found a great house with a perfect workspace and "playground" around it.
The house is located on Redfoot Ranch, which is perfect because it's close to Red Rock.



Since I'm a touge racer at heart this location is perfect, since the canyon is the very best place for it.

I've also found an abandoned apartment complex close to Red Rock but I'll need three more people to make it liveable.
Give me a call if you want to help me get it going, it's a great hub for races.
It could house a lot of people and has a garage next to it which we could build up as well.
The only problem is that it's a lot of work for me alone.



Incase you've noticed; the FR-S has arrived.

I found a better one, although it's kind of far away from anything. I'll move to the apartment building that you found if you don't mind. Haven't put a deposit on anything yet.

Awesome! Last minute learning does work haha Razz

Alright!
I haven't started yet, we probably need to break house which is totally fine by me.
I can show you the location if you want?
