Cool! A few thoughts:
- Income based repayment is a must for loans, if you're eking a subsistence living, they will probably ask you to make a very small or minimal monthly payment. Look into it.
- A trailer is poison, I wouldn't subject anyone I love to living in one. The amount of toxic plastics, heavy metals, and mold potential in a humid climate make them a definite lifespan-shortener.
- I'm also looking at coastal NC (NE, inner banks), for me it's close to home and a beautiful area. Keep in mind, though, projections of sea level rise that come with climate change. All of coastal VA/NC is very flat and prone to tidal and storm surge flooding. Picking something a little further inland might increase the lifespan of the acreage. Also, start investigating salt and waterlog-tolerant plants and natives that prevent erosion.

$3000 is way more than enough to build a small stick-built shed to live in, and then use as storage later on. Seems like a better option all around.

Hey! I've done some digging but still coming up short on resources on this topic, so...

Can you recommend some resources for farming or homesteading on swampland? I'm considering buying some coastal property which fits this criteria. Also, how can I prepare for long term sea level rise (salinity-tolerant food plants)?

Thanks!

Are any of these Eastern Shore opportunities still available?
I just got my PDC and I want to apply it in this beautiful area.

Looking for good deals on returning back no my native ecosystem (coastal VA/NC) and many of the large-acre tracts for a good price I'm finding are former Tree Farms, some clearcut, some not.

If you acquired a piece of land like this, how would you go about restoring native plants and growing food? what would you do first?
