I've put an offer down on 2 acres. £15K- which was the guide price. We won't get it- it will go for 3 times that. Guide prices aren't worth the effort here. Even if we get it, we won't be able to live on it- but it isn't too far from my house so I could have a nice forest garden and perhaps keep pigs in the summer. Have my own reasonably-sized pond (natural swimming pool perhaps?). Have enough of an orchard to make my own cider. Create a nice spot for wildlife, and an epic bbq venue.

We won't get it, but its a nice daydream for today! What is yours?

hey you never know!! my mother messaged me the other day saying she was putting down a minimum offer on a house and as of yesterday she is now the proud owner, they were apparently quite motivated to sell.

My daydream is to buy a piece of land in the seaside town where I plan to retire, soon, and start planting fruit trees now so they can get established. Maybe some nuts too. Once my kid gets settled in college and my husband decides what he's doing with his business (oh heck this is a daydream. Once my husband sells his troublesome business) we can start building something temporary out there for me to stay there, work in peace, and start rabbit operations, since the dirt is just sand really and I am going to need a large garden. I am 100% sure with enough rabbits and their poo I will make good enough dirt. So here I am in my dream surrounded by berries, bananas, and delicious bunnies, and with a rocket oven to bake bread and sell to the bed-and-breakfast folks (who don't have any good alternatives).
This fantasy gets me through many a very dull manuscript edit and cold and crummy days like today when spring is supposed to be here but it is 14C and raining. (booo)

Charli, Tereza and Sebastian - I love your daydreams!

Funny, I was just thinking about starting a similar thread, along the lines of "if you could change one thing..." and this thread is better. I love it.

Here at wheaton labs we're daydreaming about a more robust full time community. We only have a handful of folks here full time at the moment, and we'd like more.

Paul and I are dreaming of chickens with a LGD here at base camp, once we get more paddocks fenced.

And plants. We're dreaming of LOTS more growies!! Every where of course. ;-)

I dream of many things which include a off-grid type of lifestyle where everything I need in life is either grown, raised or created and I can just stay at home and work there. Even if all my dreams don't become a reality atleast they are what keep me pressing onward and fuel me to learn more with each passing day!

My daydream for today is that our 450mile, interstate move to the beautiful new home & land we bought, in MO, last month is done, we are settled in, our hugels are built, The chicken, duck goat, & alpaca shelters are built, the birds & goats are settled in, and we are on our way home with my alpaca. Yup. (The only part of this that is done, is we have the home & land bought & paid for, no mortgage. But we will have to get a home equity loan to make the rest happen)
