Put an offer in on a lake house when it was 8' low a little over a month ago and looks like we'll be closing right about the time it's at full capacity. Should have at least one summer with it full...
I remember when Lake Mathis was more of a constant level lake in the 50's and 60's and all the piers where permanantly built with pilings driven into the ground.
As fast as the lake drops now you will need to put a dock on some type of floats to keep it in the water.
Congrats on the lake house! Where on the lake are you located?
