Hi,

I have a property, 2 five acre plots side by side about 75 miles SSW of Odessa-Midland Texas. I am not sure if it is USDA Zone 7b or 8a (its right on the border when you look at the map) but it is definitely dryland Trans-pecos environment.  The town of Pecos is about a 17 mile drive to the North.I will sell this 10 acres together for 340.00 per acre...total price $3,400.00 . If you wish financing, I can do it for 8%.  I do not believe there is any building code per se in Reeves County, TX beyond approval of a septic system (which, if I were building, I'd get a variance.)  Takes are less than $80.00 per year on this property.
I am selling to put the money into another property somewhat more South. I had the following ideas for projects for this site:
Living fence on the perimeter consisting of African acacias, Jujube, mesquites, honeylocust, hackberry and mountain mahogany.  Bufelgrass or native short grasses to feed livestock.  Live oak , Afghan pine and Cedar of Lebanon for really spectacular shade, adobe/earth sheltered housing. Heat tollerant livestock such as Mouflon sheep or perhaps Blackbuck antelope.  Let me know there is any interest for this property. Also, I sense that there is great excitement about permaculture in this region, I have met several folks interested in some very smart dryland systems.

Hey Texan8b,
Do you have the location of the property for Google earth? living in Washington makes an in person visit near impossible, But I am very interested given the price. So some way to look at it online would be nice. Pictures would be good but google earth even better since one could see to topography and all that jazz.
Thanks,
-Tomm
