Ben, I took a look at your site and book and your concept is really interesting. I like the idea you and your team have of working and living in the space you create. I look forward to reading your book. My husband and I are starting to plan on buying some land to create a homestead, so gathering unique information like yours is crucial right now. The one question I have for you is for a single family to plan a homestead like the ones you create, how do I balance all the planning and work that goes into a homestead? It will be just me doing all the work with occasional work from friends and my husband. How would I create something like you and your team have, but without the team? Look forward to reading all of your insightful information!

Thanks,
Alicia

That's a question only you can answer.

It helps to start by listing what resources you have to tap into =whether it be people, skills, time, money, tools, other abilities, etc.
