Hi there,<br><br>
My family is looking to relocate to Idaho (fed up with the high regulations in NY, being looked at like I have 2 heads for our parenting choices, etc. and looking to return to simpler living <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> ). We are looking for around 5 acres, more or less that we can create a homestead on. Would prefer some kind of livable structure on the property..could be a fixer or mobile (not an absolute must). Would LOVE to be a reasonable distance to like-minded families (green, AP, natural, non-vaxing, hsing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/treehugger.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Treehugger">: ). We have been saving and have cash to put down hopefully on some sort of land contract. Employment in the area isn't a problem as we work from home.<br><br>
I figured it was worth a shot to put out feelers in the hopes that someone knows of something or someone who might be able to help us realize our dream.<br><br>
TIA

Actually, there's an MDC mama here who's trying to sell her house in my area - if I remember right, it's a decent sized house, with right around 5 acres (a bunch of it wooded, but I haven't gone out much farther than her yard).<br><br>
So are you looking at north Idaho or southern Idaho or somewhere in between? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

That would be my house for sale. As you can see by my siggy, we are going on the road (though still homebasing from n.idaho). I will PM you the virtual tour.<br><br>

If you decide to look in the Boise area, you could consider Idaho City or Garden Valley. Prices are higher in GV, but I think it is generally cleaner and nicer. Plus, that's where I am from originally and I'm just biased. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> You'd be up in the mountains in either place, so cooler temps, though you'd deal with snow in the winter.
