I've recently acquired 10+acres of unrestricted building land in wild & wonderful West Virginia. the plan is to build houses, an apiary, green houses, recording studio with sound stage as well as a soft and stained glass workshop! I'm looking for organizers, designers and instructors to set up workshops for the building and designing of all aspects of this new project. get involved now before your paying for the classes offered at this beautiful West Virginia site. edible landscaping and forests,solar and wind power,hugelkultur,permaculture,grey water oasis and irrigation systems, and whatever else you can bring to the table! you decide you own level of involvement. get started now!

Hey thanks for the reply to my post! I'll definitely keep you in mind. I am not sure where Big Otter is in WV.
I used to go to FSU , which wasn't too far away from certain cities in WV.

I'm visiting a farm in Eastern Shore this weekend. They're looking to build a community there too.

Do you have pics of your space?

@Sandra - did you visit Shine and Rise, or someone else out there? I am looking to do something on the Northern Neck of VA, across the bay from the shore. Looking for land now!

@Napoli - sounds like an awesome project! I would love to come visit sometime, I have family in Sistersville near the Ohio River, might be passing through sometime in August.

I hope everything is going well up there. I'm just the other side of Clay county from you, out in the woods from Lizemores. My wife and I picked up 26 hectares, most of which has been logged recently, but we got it for inexpensive. Eventually, we plan to build a cob/strawbale house of some sort just up the hill from where we are staying now. We are moving fairly slowly, and enjoying the learning process.

Cheers,
Daryle

I am curious how things are going?   I assume you have been on the land one year now.
