Good day all! I have been living rurally with my 5 children for the past 6 years. We have gotten accustomed to the lifestyle and we love it. We have 15 chickens, 3 geese, 3 cats and a dog. I would like to expand to cattle and or goats to help us become completely self reliant. Lately, I find that I am desiring to go deeper into the wilderness. My dream is to purchase 150-200 acres of unorganized land and build a 1,000 sq. ft. log cabin... or maybe buy a pre-fab and assemble? I will also need to construct a root cellar. I want to be realistic and take on something that we can handle. My oldest children are 18 and 17 and will be able to help with assembly or building. I am trying to figure out what would be the best way to go about this. Can anyone offer any guidance? I am looking to do this on a budget but I also want it to be my forever home. It doesn't need to be anything huge, as my eldest 2 are planning on getting their own tiny houses. How would you do it? Use a tent while building? Or purchase a trailer to stay in? I am also wanting to drill a well, set up solar panels and later on, a garden and fences, etc. Has anyone here done this before? Any pointers you can give me?
