Looking for land
I’m looking for land now. The process is more difficult because I have no idea where I want to live. Within 100-150 miles of a certain place, but that’s a lot of research to do! Unemployment, job prospects, poverty level, town atmosphere, topography, and air/water quality all come into play.
I’m looking for a place I’ll want to live for the rest of my life. I’ve never had that consideration before. Maybe I shouldn’t be looking for “the perfect place”, but why not?
There are a few places that seem like they may be possibilities. Gorgeous area, small town atmosphere, older buildings in town, city well maintained, walking trails and waterways nearby… I think I could find a job within six months, and could make ends meet and work on the house in the meantime. My goal at this point is to start building next spring. I still have some downsizing to do, and have to check with the counties on codes. A few acres in a peaceful area, close enough to town that I can bike, far enough out that I will see trees instead of subdivisions. Enough land to have a few fruit trees and a nice garden. It’s a nice dream, one I hope to wake up to find is real in the near future.
