Work From Home In Wisconsin – Grant County Wisconsin – A Great Place to Live, Work and Play

Work From Home In Wisconsin

Question by LoveBiologist: Wisconsin??
Okay, we’re thinking about moving from the NW suburbs of Chicago to the suburbs of Milwaukee Wisconsin, Pewaukee area to be exact. My husband received a great job offer…just not sure if it’s a stable move…. I need input…anyone live there?? What are some good areas, good value’s housing wise?? Raising kids, young families, newer homes, good schools…that sort of thing…. Also…I’m very concerned as I heard on the news that Wisconsin has very high unemployment rates and more college grads then jobs, is the economy stable there!?
Any and all input from anyone who knows, would be great!
Thanks in advance!!

My husband is in the hospitality business. He runs hotels and restaurants….he’s been offered a COE position for a restaurant/hotel there.
I’m not concerned so much with wether or not we can afford it, but rather wether or not it would be a good place to invest…i.e. purchase a home! I’ve heard a lot about the lack of economy/jobs and the cost of living is high considering….worried about losing the equity we’d be investing on our home! Any and all help or advice is welcome, esspecially from those who know the area! Thanks!

The economy seems stable enough to me. There are some great companies that are headquartered here. Like any metropolitan area–including Chicago–there are problems, but Pewaukee isn’t in the city. It’s a suburb to the west of Milwaukee and there are several suburbs–quite affluent ones–between Pewaukee and the Milwaukee County line.
I assume you’ve visited Pewaukee and you’ve seen what life is like there–the lake, the schools, the people. It’s a great place to raise kids–most places in Wisconsin are. Cities here are usually on lists of the top places to raise a family, with Sheboygan (to the north) and Madison (to the west) named most often.

For children, there are many kinds of resources so you don’t have to feel that by moving them away from a bigger metropolis you are condemning them to live like hicks. Music, drama, athletic, and cultural organizations such as ethnic dance groups can suppliment more community based activities and just hanging out.

The tourism business is very strong in Wisconsin and people who live here also like to have a good time.

I think it’s a very good place to raise a family. I live in one of those suburbs between Pewaukee and Milwaukee and my children have grown up safe, well-educated, and with experiences I never really thought they could have. Living here lets them know that there’s a big world out there to explore and the security of living in a safe place lets them develop confidence to go out there and explore it.

I’m still here!

I guess I have to come up with another excuse for my long absence from Flickr. Here it goes.

I was in Washington, DC for a work related trip earlier this month. I was there for an annual convention but I mainly did a lot of video work. I did manage to get ONE decent photograph of the Washington Memorial. Last week I took an amazing trip along the coastal areas of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. I came back with some amazing images and a gut full of grease from all that wonderful southern cooking.

It was a perfect week for photography in the Carolinas and Georgia with gorgeous weather in the mid 60s and 70s with no humidity. When I flew back to Milwaukee, Wisconsin the other day I was welcomed home with 20-degree weather and falling snow. I was blasted back into reality when I had to dig my car out from the snow and scrape chunks of ice off my windshield in the airport parking lot.

So once again I’m motivated to post photos from a warm weather climate like my trip to the Philippines last year.

On the beautiful island of Guimaras is the Raymen Beach Resort, which is popular with locals on the weekend. Unfortunately I didn’t stay here too long as this was the jumping off point to board our boat to tour the nearby islands.

As I write this its 30-degrees outside with snow on the ground and looking at this photograph just brings a smile to my face.

Happy Travels!
