I found the forum while doing some research on starting up my homestead, read a bit and discovered that I can't seem to leave. Yall stuck with me now. I'm a 31 year old guy, single, no kiddies. I first got started in homesteading 10 years ago up in Maine in a one room shack with a woodstove on 40 acres. Had a couple of horses, sheep, goats, chickens, rabbits, God knows how many cats that bred like rabbits and 2 dogs. Always wanted to build with logs. I rebuilt the interior of the barn with logs first, for practice. Wall stood up to a horses kicking, so I figured I'm good to go. I picked a spot and marked my trees but I never got the chance to build that cabin. Local plant closed down and my father passed on, times got real tough and I couldn't keep the land. So I traveled the country for a while, wound up here in Florida, work in HVAC and spend my free time planning, searching and researching for the next homestead. Look foward to gettin settled in here.
