Hey everyone! First I'd like to say I am so excited to have found this forum. I've found myself starving to talk to like minded people from other social media channels. I can't wait to learn and share with you guys. Second, I'd like to tell you a little about myself. My husband, our 3 children and I bought land in March of this year in South East Tennessee. We've both basically lived here most of our lives. We sold our house this summer and have since then purchased a camper and are living on the land. We are building a cob house and workshop. We plan to live in the workshop for the next 3-5 years while we build our perment house. We've just finish pouring our stem wall and are about to place our lumber and tin order for our roof! Our home site is about a mile from the road. Running water and utilities will be a costly endeavor (somewhere close to 20k) so we will most likely invest in solar, windmills and rain water collection. Our objective is to be closer with nature, live more naturally, get out of corporate America, invest in ourselves, the list goes on but you get the point. We've been recording our progress and hope to have a running website of our own soon. Thanks for reading my post. I'm looking forward to being on here.
