Hello all, Just wanted to say hi and have a general question to begin with. My wife and I are in our 40s (empty nesters) will be soon making a leap of faith and moving to a remote location, purchase as much land as possible, build a small house and go off-grid. It is both our dreams. We want out of the city. No neighbors and a simple debt free life. My question is, we have enough equity and cash to finance the house so once we move in, we would be debt free. But the areas we want to move too are VERY remote and have few jobs available and those that do, a long drive is required each day. I guess I want to know once we make that leap, how much would our monthly bills be in the short term and then long term? We plan to grow a large portion of our food in the short summer and heat the house with wood from the land. That leaves electric (which we may use solar but not sure yet as it adds a huge initial cost and many unknowns). So basically our monthly bills will consist of taxes, cloths, blah blah and I have estimated about $1000/mn which I can easily make online and doing odd jobs. Just not sure if it is economically possible or if that $1000 is realistic from month to month to live out in the middle of nowhere. Any advice?
