I've never heard of restrictions, but you would probably want to evaluate the specific area. Even if there are no laws, you could cause problems with neighbors who might have horses. You would have that issue in TN as well.

Very good points. As you mentioned, it would be prudent to meet any potential neighbors before buying a property to feel them out on this topic.

I forgot one of Louisville's most unique selling points that you really don't see driving through. We've got some great city parks.

Thanks for the additional info.

Since you are use to a 65 mile commute, then this could really expand your search for a place to live or work. It's only 70 miles between Louisville and Lexington and only 100 miles between Louisville and Cincinnati. So, even at the most extreme, if you lived in place like Carrollton or Sparta (off of I-71) you could expand your job search to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area.

Ideally, I would like to reduce the commute by a considerable margin if we are to move out of state. The perfect scenario would be to convince my current job to let me telecommute, but I don't think that is going to happen. But it does open more areas to search for housing!

While we have been searching, the job situation seems most appropriate around Louisville but now my DW seems to have focused on the southern TN area, a little south of Nashville. In the end, we will probably end up staying exactly where we are.

I appreciate all of the fantastic feedback provided on this board!
