I wrote here about a month ago wondering if DH and I should trade in our adobe house in town with trees and water (and high mortgage and neighbor troubles) for a free piece of land on very dry windy, no tree land to build our natural home and raise our kids. It was quite discouraging that our alternative was so unpleasant yet appealing financially.
Somehow, our financial situation has looked up tremendously and we are going to get 3 or 4 acres up in the pristine undeveloped mountains where DH and I met. It's forested and has amazing views and there are covenants that don't allow lots of development. There is a community irrigation ditch and good access roads.
We can afford the down payment and the owner will finance.
In the meantime we are fixing our house to rentable condition and when it gets there, we'll move up to the land and probably live in a yurt for a bit then start construction when we can. It is soooo exciting. We'll be living in front of lots of national forest and it will be a great place to raise our kids.
Just had to update you all. Hopefully one day in the near future, I'll be writing you from the mountains and show you pictures of our place.
