I know that kind of land well, spent many months tramping all over Ft Know, both during basic training and AIT, and later hunting and National Guard training. Great job finding something with at least a little flat area!

Beautiful photo, nice place you got there. I am glad you hear you are having less worry, that is always good. Your plans seem very reasonable, one suggestion I would have is to make sure your deep well has a sufficiently sized and functioning bladder tank. Well pumps kicking on and off because the bladder tank is way to small or has failed can cause pumps to fail or break of debris that constantly clogs filters.

My only query would be the septic system. We're considering an Aquatron, or other composting system here (although our septic system does not cause problems, that's mainly because we don't look too hard!). I assume your well is not likely to be limited, but it always seems a pity to mix shit and water.
I look forwards to your updates, good luck!

We've got 16.5 acres in Mercer County (Harrodsburg Area) and the land here is fairly affordable, the code enforcement people scarce and the codes while present are largely ignored if you have more than 10 acres and are zoned agricultural. Good luck on your adventure, I'd love to get in touch once you're down here. We are building a timber frame and strawbale home which we will be chronicling here on permies as we go; right now we've broken ground and are getting ready to set footers. Cheers.
