Okay, we have recently purchased 11 acres and soon we will be beginning the stages of development. It has been occupied by cattle for the last 100 years or so and it is completely undeveloped. We want to prep it for a builder to build our house in a few years. It already has barbwire side fences. I know the basics--clearing (only for the house, the rest is being kept wooded), run electricity/phone lines, septic/well, gravel drive, front gate,???) For those of you who have made a similar move, in what order did you do these and any lessons learned? (Like types of septics, where to or not to run lines, how to take drainage into account.) We are trying to do a little at a time as we can afford to. This will be for a 2,100 sq. ft house (3/2) on flat central Texas land. Just general advice would be helpful--I can do the research. Muchos gracias!
