While looking at properties in NC I came across this listing: www.homesandland.com/Magazine/Listing.cfm?MagId=0775&ListingId=7811206& ''Small bungalow on 3.24 acres of beautiful land is a handyman's special. Very private. New vinyl siding & vinyl windows. No heat source. Tin roof. A-6 $34,900'' May or may not be suitable for homesteading but if it helps anyone find 'their place' all the better.
