I'm looking at land in Missouri. I really like the lots Smile4uinc.com offers, such as this lot which is close to 5 acres for about $5500 and close to forbes lake: http://www.smile4uinc.com/listings/3303.html but the subdivision the lots are in don't allow chickens and require 1000 sq ft lower floor and all the other regular subdivision requirements. the no chickens isn't a deal breaker for me but the rest is. does anyone know of any 5+ acre lots at this price in missouri that have no building restrictions? I want to be near a lake community. I am not really interested in the lake itself but have lived in a small lake community in the past and really enjoyed that type of community as the closest *town*. What I want to build at the present is something like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/storage-shed-gu...ultDomain_0?hash=item4cec54593f#ht_2739wt_926 on piers with no elec or septic or block foundation. Just a weekend cabin type situation at the moment with outhouse or portable toilet and bring own water in. Eventually I will add septic, well, elec but don't want to have to at this time. some other places I have looked at you can get by without septic if you have 10+acres but the elec co won't hook up without a septic system (if I can find a place I can hook elec up now cheaply enough I would do this at the beginning but save water and septic until later). I prefer MO though am also looking at KY. KY is closer to *home* but I used to live in MO and prefer it to KY. Thanks for any info you might have. I am open to all of MO though would prefer to go as far north as there are still dogwoods growing wild and blooming may sound like a strange requirement but this will be my retirement and hopefully last home and gotta have dogwoods growing WILD plus redbuds of course ! have lived too many years where I have to travel to the southern part of my county to see them growing wild in the spring. Thank you.
