Most of this trash came from styrofoam, bubble wrap, and other packing materials from moving out to the property and from online orders for items I needed. After the 1st yr my trash accumulation slowed down a lot. I think I added only the last 4 bags in the next 2 yrs.
Sad thing is my area does not have a good recycling set up. Especially big issue for me is glass is not recycled in the area. I tend to opt for glass over plastic bottles due to glass being able to be recycled infinite times. While plastic just a few times. A few neighbors and I are considering pooling together to make a 3 hr one way glass recycle trip worth it.

I have seen elk near my place, grazing beside the highway. Magnificent. But, the consensus seems to be that they stay on the far side of said highway. This is encouraging to me as elkproof fencing is either very expensive or does not exist depending on who I ask...
Do you have fencing plans?
Do you end up snowed in, or is the road passable by 4x4 pretty well right through?
You plan to build the first stage of the whole house, rather than finishing a segment first? The segmented design seems well suited to a gradual build, but the earthworks parts, and the roof, would be challening to handle that way.
The back workshop areas will be closed in with large doors?
