Hey all. I'm Scott from Lancaster, Ohio. Right now I have my family living in a rental house, but we will soon be looking to buy (again). I would love to find a decent sized piece of land and build a cordwood home on it and start my permacultural living . . . but that may or may not be a possibility. Here are a few resources I like to use when daydreaming about a place though.
- look up well logs to see what other wells in your area have been drilled and pertinent information about the wells.
- published soil surveys for the state of Ohio. You can get a tremendous amount of information from these surveys.
BTW, these are of great value to me with my education in Environmental Science and Geography. You may or may not be able to use them, but I sure do.
