Hi-

I've been following permies for some time but only recently opened an account. Hi permies!

There is a nearly perfect property with over 60 useable acres of flat/hilly farmland and forest that has nearly unlimited permaculture potential located in North Plains/Hillsboro Oregon. close to Portland but still in farm country.

It's a little out of my range pricewise and acreagewise alone but it would have unlimited potential with a partnership. The problem is that in order to build, the lender needs 20% money down. The cost of land and building is pretty huge alone but reasonable if the burden is shared across two or more families. Its an arduous process to subdivide zoned farm/forest land in Oregon. I'm looking for anyone who is financially stable enough to buy a house who is willing to consider a joint ownership on the property with me.

I put an ad on ic.org but frankly I've haven't received very many productive queries. Regardless of our enthusiasm, ideas of an alternative economy, willingness to to WFF, etc. Nothing will be built here (aside from a mcmansion for someone with a million in liquid assets-not me) unless there is someone else willing to invest actual money to build a permaculture farm/community.

Anyone else interested in building a community?

This looks like a beautiful plot in a lovely area! It would be helpful to know what kind of money your needs require to reach that 20% down? Why would anyone want to build a McMansion there?? I'd want strawbale!

What a wonderful place! I'm also looking for land to live and homestead on around Hillsboro, I'd be very interested in hearing more about this property and the cost. Please reach out! Thanks.
