I am calling out to all the tiny house community and the permies community. I see a land co op were everyone's mortgagee is 0 - 500.00 a month and no one needs permits for their house because they own it outright and are on wheels. Families can bring 2 or 3 tiny homes. The simplicity of owning land together without sharing ownership in your dwelling. Permaculture farming techniques can be employed to feed everyone.
The following are the biggest hurdles for people to break free of their chains.
Extremely affordable housing in a place that is healthy, spacious and community bases and safe.
Low start up cost. The average joe barely has a savings account. Tiny houses can be built well with salvaged material and quickly. The sooner you get to a place with cheap rent the sooner you can start Saving for the future.
Let's face it guys not all of us are going to be able to sell our hugal tomatoes at a farmers market and make enough to pay our mortgage. And not all of us are going to be paid permies. We need to find salut ions for average people to get on land and have enough time to practice permaculture without the pressure to make profit from it. Imagine someone who only needs to work part time to pay their mortgage on a land co op with20 acres near a place were they can go to their job in the city. These are the solutions that will affect the larger group of permies.

I take it that is low for your area. That is high to me. One thing to consider is location, location, location. If you want low costs, pick a place that has low costs.

That's why I said 0.00 to 500.00 if we're you live land is cheap enough co op the land ownership outright. O.00 monthly mortgage. In Santa Cruz I would like to find a group of 5 families with 50 grand each and buy a piece with a 2500 monthly mortgage. 500.00 a month is easy working in Santa Cruz because wages are high due to high cost of living. I am talking about a solution for people who live in areas who are stuck in the rent debt cycle but can't afford to move to another city because their job is there. I wages low cost of living equals more freedom.

Is that 50K DOWN? ~And~ a 2500 a month mortgage for how long?

50K is a lot to risk if any of the other 80% flake. Or have difficulties . . .

Charley - I'm locking this thread. You've posted the same thing four times, which seems a bit excessive.
