My dh came home from work and told me to go and buy some land........???? NOW WHAT? I have looked on Realtor.com and there is land for sale, I found one lot with a small trailer already on it for 12,000$ but it is only an 11/2 acre, I think we want more??? I dont' know??? I think that he is cool with a mortgage under 20,000$ but we are goign to build as we go as far as the house goes. I want to have a garden, chickens and maybe a few cows eventually.....how much land do I need? Is it even possible to have someplace livable by September? I want to homestead but I don't really want to go all wilderness. It would be hard to find wilderness in South Carolina (too populated). WHERE DO I START?????
