20 acres of land abundantly laced with trees and wildlife. RV hookups to accommodate Tiny houses/Eco houses that aren't completely off grid yet [or are under construction and need extra power for tools] Already existing bunkhouse cabins with A/C for guests who want to visit the eco-community. Sounds great right? This is a great oasis with plenty of potential for expansion. It is for sale for $350k. I am going out there soon to get a first hand look at the place and I will report back with whatever I find.
If I can generate enough interest in this community I can get a loan to buy the property and start the community. My question is: If this property was purchased, What would be the likelihood of you moving out there
1. With your own Tiny house/eco shelter and buying/renting space?
2. If Tiny houses/eco shelters were available for purchase/rent on the property?
By Tiny house I mean sub 1000 square feet and as green as practical.
Plans for development include a permaculture community garden for growing your own food, and a solar array that can power the community / charge their electric vehicles. In the mean time a community eco-shuttle will be available to drive residents into town, the shuttle can tow a trailer so residents can bring their bicycles/scooters/motorcycles into town, ride around to run their errands, and load up into the shuttle and drive back to the community.
Nathan, I just read about a permaculture design course in Austin (this August) that uses the students to do community projects. These students could work on the property possibly. Let me know if you'd like to hear more about this. I learned about the course from a post on the Permacuture group on the social network "Linked In."
I might be interested in living there. I've been doing permaculture for a long time and my interest is primarily in agriculture. I'm a drylands permie and I'm itching to homestead and nurture a food forest. Let's talk. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
