I've kind of been beside myself as of late. You see I can't make a decision. I'm at the point of adding in a few hogs, nothing elaborate just 2 at a time to grow out to butcher for the year or twice a year. I also decided to keep a few game roosters and breed with some of my free-range flock to play around with cranking out a superior free-range flock that can pretty much self-sustain itself. I've got 6 acres across the creek that is pretty much rock, from home size to car size to pebbles. It's actually pretty nice, one area has a exposed rock that's big enough to clean a bit and build a decent size pole barn, hog lot, chicken breeding pins, firewood storage, large scale composting area, etc and literally have nature-provided level stone floors. It's one of the largest natural relatively flat 60ft x 200 ft long base that I know of. I know where I want to set up these operations, but I can't even make a decision on what type of barn, coop, and hog lot styles to build. I've looked at hundreds of designs on all 3 on the internet, but every time I go to get started I second guess myself. We've already developed around 5 acres that we somewhat consider "yard" around the house. We have a rabbit breading pin, grow out pins, bees, nice "shed" style chicken coop for our free range flock, 3500 sq ft traditional garden, 1000-1200 sq ft of raised beds. A small vineyard, 12-16 fruit trees, a nice work shed, and other typical things going on over here (tractors, mowers, implements, etc). My move across the creek is for the "second" stage in becoming self-sufficient where I develop to the next level of food production, then even consider raising a hog or two for locals once my needs are met. So I want to set this operation up with growth potential now while in design and I want to build stuff that was "built right" and last for years. I've got the time to commit to it, I'm 47, retired, in just as good if not better physical condition than I have ever been in (and I'm X-military X-combat soldier), I'm not worried about the cost either....but I just can't "pull the trigger" and make a decision on getting started building a flippin' chicken breedin' pin let alone a barn. My motivation is there, I'm ready. I'm looking forward to developing this area into something I envisioned....but I'm stuck and just can't make the ground-breaking decision. This sucks by the way. Am I normal? Do some of you fight off making decisions like this? I will literally walk out the door on some mornings with full intentions on starting and then I'll pretty much intentionally side-track myself in working all day doing something else that needs done that's not a priority. I want to set it up properly the first time....second guessing my decisions and cancelling them to consider all other options has landed me in a quagmire....is there such a thing as a homesteading "shrink" I can go visit for some help?
