Hi there! I am new to this website, and I have been reading alot of the threads and replies, and you moms are great!! (Aren't all moms though!) So, anyways, I have a question for all you out there. My boyfriend and I are planning to move to upstate Vermont, with my 5 and 7 year old. The land is owned by friends of ours, to whom we have been paying money to and eventually will have 30 acres or so deeded over to us. When finances are available. WE are planning on building an a small addition onto their house, which was jsut finished last fall. I want o do this, my only concerns, are there is no well dug yet. Plenty of water, we make water runs, but no running water. I think I could deal with this. There's no septic either. There is an outhouse, but it's a good 25 feet from the house. WE don't have much for money, although my boyfriend would plan on working with her husband, who owns his own siding company down here in MAssachusetts, and I plan on getting a job. But he want to move in this summer, and I don't know if I can commit to doing it at least without a toilet. Does anyone have any reassuring stories or thoughts, concerning this. I just can't see making them leave their familiar surroundings, friends, grandparents, and modern home, to living wih no electricity, toilet, running water, etc... as being fair? Am I just worrying too much? I know it will be beneficial in the long run, but is that too much?
