I don't know what to expect yet myself so can't tell you either. I've been wanting my backyard farm for years now. Since at least the time my daughter was a toddler. Spontaneous planning isn't something I'm especially good at, I need to sit with an idea and look at it from different angles. Some times for a long time. And life like to happen to plans, so I don't get super attached to them. But I'm getting to point in my life that I feel like I can't pull on the little separate pieces of hopes and dreams and ideas together and make something. Last spring I was finally sick of renting, especially since my mother is my landlord and she's. Not. A great person. We started looking at housing in town, but prices are crazy. Anything in our budget that wasn't completely run down was being snapped up by cash investors to flip. Everything else would have been a full reno. I love getting to work with my hands and I grew up helping my own parents fix run down house to rent and flip, but there is no way our budget was going to allow for getting a mortgage then continuing to rent while we take months and spend even more money just to get something bare minimum of livable. We found some places at the top of our budget and got out bid each time we made an offer. And I got sick of it. And even as we kept going I kept thinking I want a farm. I've known I wanted a farm for this long, I want my goats, more chickens, rabbits and alpaca, and Eris wants turkeys and Liam wants a horse. Jordan has talked about emu almost since we met. I want my farm and I'm not getting younger or gaining time. So I'm at the point now where the conclusion is fuck suburbia, I'm going to buy some land. And if I have to commute to work for a while before I figure out different alternatives then fine. This is. A log? A record, a place to bounce ideas, and a place where other people can watch, learn, make suggestions. idk, I need to put it all in one place that isn't bouncing around in my mental echo chamber. Tomorrow we're going to look at a property I found on Craigslist, about 3 minutes south of Springdale, WA. It's. Farther out than I wanted to be, almost a full hour commute to work, but it's 9 acres, already has a good well (22gpm), flat and sparsely treed, highway frontage. The guy owes 49k on his loan and he wants to sell it for the value + 10k which is fucking amazing? Everything in that price range closer to town doesn't have any improvements, and drilling a well yourself is always a gamble. You could drill 60 feet and hit 30 gpm or keep going down and not hit anything until 700 feet. Or not hit anything at all. And you still have to pay for it, something to the tune of $30/foot. Except for that drive, this land is a really, really good deal, and honestly, since my goal is eventually getting all my income off the farm.... I'd be crazy not to at least consider it. Wish us luck I guess?
