Looking for one or two permies to join. And build a home in Florida, or other areas.

We need land. I just found two adjoining 1.3 acres lots for $3,000 each.
We need a RV. I found quite a few RV for sale on craigslist ranging from $700 to $5,000
We need to build houses. I myself want to build it using sand bags its cheap around $4,000
We need water/utilities for the RV. I found a RV park that only charges $100, per month. we can use it till the houses are finish.
We need cash. You can stay at my house in Boston,MA to cut your current rent/utilities/groceries, until we have money saved up.

Here is the link. http://www.landsofflorida.com/land-for-sale/2.5-acres-in-Putnam-County-Florida/id/999703. It would be awesome, if we could start soon.

You could reduce your rent/hot water/sewer/trash/electric/gas/internet to $900 or less a month you get your own room and access to everywhere.

I also like the look of the place and the price is good $3,700 for 1.3 acres with a permie neighbor.
That you can build with.

I am up here in central Pa where we get great rains coming off the great lakes so we barely ever have to water our gardens. We have nice winters to freeze ice for summer use. We have many trees and water bubbles up thru the ground as we are number # state for water running above ground. We have many state gamelands with wild animals and well we are lower than Oregon looking across the USA. We have many amish who do well here and well i have a farm and would like a partner to help me. see my site here http://directory.ic.org/22661/Central_Pa_Mountain_farm___for_Hip_open_minded_people

I don't like flat land it has no free energy like mountanous land. I have gravity flow water and soil and fertilizer and firwood

Soon i will build a bathroom too.. so no more chamber pots.. not that they are bad.. They are actually pretty easy..

see my over 200 pictures at my site of what i have done and planted so far in the last 2 yrs..

PS: Contact me thru my site

I love the idea that there is someone out there who has done as much research as I have oops maybe more. I have food forest lists, livestock lists, pasture lists, housing plans and so on. Are you familiar with the area of New Mexico (Fence Lake) that we have choosen. The land is pretty heavily wooded so will need to clear older or damaged trees and replant with fruit trees. And yes water conservation, harvesting, hauling and maybe well digging will be necessary. My email is lylamoore56@yahoo.com. We are using a tenancy in common as our begining ownership framework. Tried to message you but couldnt get it to work
 
It wasn't my idea to go to some crazy nightclub in the middle of nowhere. I just wanted to stay home and cuddle with this tiny ad:
Heat your home with the twigs that naturally fall of the trees in your yard
