I got my land and now the real fun begins. We are going up this weekend to start clearing. I'll be using the small pine logs to build and goat barn and a chicken coop. This will be our first big building project. It'll be just me and my two teen daughters, 13 and 16. We are going to do a dry stack method on a concrete block foundation wall to keep the logs off the ground. Once we have that up, we're going to try a driven well. I'm really nervous about this one. But we'll need water and I have no money, so it has to be done. If that does work out, I use a cistern and rainwater catchment system. I don't want to run out of water. There is a creek on the property, so we'll have water for animals and garden. While we're driving the well, we'll also be getting the garden in place. Once we have water, we'll start building our house. I hope to start on the house by mid-Feb.
