Thanks for the information gordo, that is very helpful. We have also looked at the San Luis valley area, and it seems nice, but like you said very dry. We are really looking at that area, for some reason the other places you have mentioned seem very nice, but just don’t feel “right” you know?

My concern with building is that we want to do this now – we would need somewhere to stay in the meantime. Did you do the work yourself for your standard frame?

We are not too worried about work, willing to work odd jobs, trade, wanting to grow a large chunk of our own food. Wanting to start up our own business, I have paintings to sell and we are both very handy. If we have our lodging paid for and a ready heating and food supply, there shouldn’t be any other major expenses, right? We are wanting to get out of the rat race anyway.

Thanks!
