I know that they can take it but don't they have to pay me? And can they
only
take so much just this once as to not jeopardize my home being taken?

You're thinking of "eminent domain" which is the purchase of private
property for expansion by the state when "right of way" is not involved.
If the county requires your home to be set back x feet, then they have a
"right of way" which is preset by law.
That they can use as they see fit without compensation to you.
If it is necessary to "take" your home, then they must give you fair market
value for it and the property.

A co-worker of my father's who lived in macon, georgia, had some of his
property purchased by the state in order to complete I-75.
Some times buildings go up quick in areas where there is going to be a road
built in the future, in the hopes that the state will be forced to buy the
building. But sometimes the state finds way of getting around that.

Why would they buy a dumpster from you?

I bought the home and property for $250,000.00, St00pid. It's zoned commercial
for office space or a bank. I plan on moving my office into the building by
November. The county is widening the intersection and road facing my property.

How much is your tin can single wide worth?
