I have some fun hobbies that can add pizzaz on an owner/builder project. (I attached a pyrographic floor medallion and an inlay in Corian that I did on our countertops when I remodeled.
We are currently living in Vancouver, WA by Portland. Love to hear from whoever on this thread is serious about moving forward.

I am toying with an idea just like your own. I was in fact in WA looking at land last summer. I am trying for a summer 2014 move. I had envisioned a 5 acre at a minimum. I have to say I am more interested in property that could be sub-divided as I believe that leads to the least amount of conflict. My reply may be slow sometimes as I am currently living in Amsterdam and work keeps me busy.
As was I (looking at land in WA and OR last summer). We're about to list our home (we're pocketing the equity and downsizing our monthly expenses), and expect to be ready to buy around the same time (summer 2014), but not necessarily move right away. I've been thinking it makes sense to find land first and then see who fits in with it (there are too many variables the other way around), kind of the way Rob Roy of Cordwood fame did it (he got land under contract and then advertised sub-divisible shares in Mother Earth News). So, if anyone has an angle on a specific piece of property in a rainy portion of WA, OR, New England or Hawaii, please let me know.
