where in georgia to move and live?

ive had this plan for a while now but i just don't know where to go for my line of work or even where to start.

so im currently going to school to take a carpentry class and i will graduate in spring of 2015. i plan to stay up here in the north for a little while and get some experience and save up money then i plan to move down south to i was thinking georgia. so ill start off with this, what area should i look in that i would be able to rent either a good size apartment or a small house that would be close to a good construction company that i would be able to get a job at? im hoping that by the time im ready to move i will have started a family or atleast have a relationship going so it would need to be a place that is family friendly as im sure most places are. i like to be in more of the country setting as opposed to city. i know things could change in 3 years but what are some areas currently that would fit this description. eventually i would like to be able to start up my own construction company or get into a business partnership with someone to start a construction company. also somewhere in the plan is to build my own house on a nice sized piece of property without having to totally relocate the family i may or may not have started at that point. can anyone help me out and give me some advice?

Re: where in georgia to move and live?

I've had the same thought. Weather is so much nicer in the winter months and none of the truck eating salt. I've thought of TN and I have some family in Nashville. Something to think about is starting a family while your up here yet. My current girlfriend has a brother in the army at fort Campbell and she likes it down there too. She also has an 8 year old and 5.5 year old and has no interest whatsoever of moving down there and moving them away from their families. You need to be right up front with someone about your intentions or find someone down there. From my experiences down south the people are different and for the most part seem nice and friendly, not dbags and stuck up thinking they are better than everyone else like I see so much of around me.

Re: where in georgia to move and live?

i know of people who build houses in the country to the northwest of the Dallas/ TX metro area, and then about 10 years later, development has reached thier area lol - end up making some money on their land & them move to another similar spot. plus the area has been building nonstop for quite a while if i understand correctly.

TX may be a bit of a stretch for you though, being as you want GA...

Also my reasons for moving down there. I have family in Florida maryville Tennessee as well as up here in pa and my grandmother lives in Florida in the winter and up here in pa in the summer. I'm only 19 so it's thinking ahead a little bit but that's the plan. Not in a serious relationship as of now so if I'm not in one then I guess that would be even easier for me. Everyone down there is really nice and not always in a rush like we are up here. It's just a different way of life that I like.

Re: where in georgia to move and live?

Hard to really say right now. Building industry sucks. We are in the dump truck business and have been hit hard with the economy just like all the builders. If you want country/rural setting look at least 25 miles outside of I-285(the perimeter around Atlanta), population starts thinning out when you get 20-30 miles outside the perimeter. As far as all of the other major cities in Georgia go(dalton, Rome, Augusta, Athens,savannah, Columbus, albany, Valdosta, statesboro,etc) you can pretty much start looking just a few miles outside the city limits and start finding rural areas. Georgia is a great place to live. I would narrow it down to what region of Georgia you like and then try to find a reputable construction contractor closer to the time you are wanting to move. It's starting to pick back up slowly. I live in Greensboro which is basically in the middle of no where on I-20 half way between Atlanta and Augusta but we have lake Oconee here which is a high property value lake. This was the place to be for builder 8-10 years ago until the economy tanked. Good luck with your search

Re: where in georgia to move and live?

Add me to the list of Yankees looking to relocate. My illustrious Governor announced last week people like me aren't welcome in NY anymore, I keep debating on whether to stay and fight this idiot or flee south where I think I'd fit in better. I do business on line so it doesn't really matter where I go, I would like some woods and terrain similar to what we have here instead of the flatlands. Would love to pick up a 15 to 20 acre parcel, I'd have about $200,000 cash available. Not sure how far that would get me.

check out Tennessee or even farther out west around the rockies. that would be my second place to move if not georgia. im just tired of the way of life around here. 2 people from the graduating class of 2012, the year before me, have died due to drugs and honestly im just tired of hearing about it. ended up leaving my friends last night because they started with that chit and i was just fed up with it 2 days after the kid just died. seems like this state is so overcome with lazy azzes and druggies anymore. im sure its elsewhere too but i need to get away from it from around here.

North Georgia is a great place to live. I lived in northeast Georgia a couple of years during college. Great terrain and good people.
