I currently live in Atlanta, Ga, and I am DESPERATE to find land around me (it can be outside of ATL, no problem), because I'm just feeling so stuck and want to build my earthbag/cob house/tiny house asap! I have a friend who also wants to build a little cob home with me, so we would build ours next to each other.
I am getting really discouraged because land is so expensive, but maybe there's a community nearby that has land for tiny homes and community eco-living, so I would appreciate as much wisdom as you can possibly give me.
This has been my dream for so long and I just don't know the next step to take on how to find land to build it on!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, I appreciate it so much.
I know exactly how you feel. Right now land is pretty expensive, the price of land is probably going to peak in a few years and then drop again. We purchased land in North Georgia near the border of TN. Its great land in a nice town. And the price has gone up $50k-$70k since we purchased.
We are looking to keep the land for as long as we can pass it on to someone who is looking to have a permaculture farm.
It has a 1940s home with several updates. And even a new roof and siding.
I hope this helps you get an idea of what youre into! Also if you have Instagram, let me know ill send you my username and i post photos of our farm on there! And we can keep in touch easier!
