3 Vital Aspects To Consider When Building A House

Building a house is an inspiring, exciting event in anyone’s life. Building that second house away from your home in Tallahassee? That’s a dream waiting to happen.

Let Cloudland Station get you there. In our new home community nestled into the mountains of Northern Georgia — and yet only 15 minutes away from Chattanooga — you can experience an unforgettable time spent with family and friends. Better yet, you can build a house here and create a family legacy and tradition in our “Legacy Community.”

In today’s blog, we’re going to discuss three simple, yet vital, aspects to consider when you build a house — be it your first home, a second home, or a vacation home. Read on to learn what you need to do before building a house with us away from your Tallahassee roots, and then reach out to us for a discounted two-night stay to see how you like the area. Feel free to browse through our blog some more as well; we discuss everything from what you want in a mountain community to how to find a new home community your family will love or how to know it’s time for a vacation home.


Obviously, we all know that considering location is essential when building a house. That being said, we see three ways to look at location when contemplating new home construction or buying a second home:

    • To family and friends – No dream home would be a dream if your friends and family weren’t close enough to share in special, relationship-building memories with you. You don’t have to build a house in the exact same neighborhood — or even state — that your friends and family members are in, but you’ll treasure your second home more if you can spend time with them while there.
    • To big cities – This could vary depending on how much you appreciate what big cities have to offer — think: museums, restaurants, a vibrant nightlife — but keep this in mind as you look at new home designs throughout various areas.
  • To outdoor opportunities – As you get older and transition to retirement, you’ll want to find a summer home, second home, or vacation home that offers plenty of outdoor opportunities for fun. Whether it’s only an hour away or is out your front door is up to you.


If there’s one thing that will keep your friends and family coming to visit your vacation home, it’s activities. Especially as an empty nester with kids and grandkids, what better way to create memories and build relationships than with new activities?

At Cloudland Station, we take this seriously. After all, as a Legacy Community, we want to help you build your legacy. Because of this, we offer many activities that everyone in the family can enjoy:

    • Fishing
    • Hiking
    • Canoeing
    • Paddleboarding
    • Woodworking
    • Gardening
    • Golfing
    • Baking
    • Visiting the country store
    • Swimming
    • Enjoying cookouts
  • Talking by fires


Buying a second property in a quaint little neighborhood is delightful. Watching that neighborhood grow and change into a bustling metropolis you were trying to avoid? That can hurt.

When you look into building a home, be aware of how the area will change and develop over time. You can’t, of course, predict the future; however, you can look at trends in the area and speak with your custom home builders about their expert predictions.

At Cloudland Station, you don’t have to worry about this. We’ll always have acres of land for you, your friends, and your family to explore. With more than 450 acres in the beautiful valley alongside Lookout Mountain, we’re committed to keeping the rolling land for many years to come.
