So we have been posting on this site for a few years now and still haven’t found anyone interested that actually wants to work towards building a community. So far I’ve built a small cabin from used pallet wood. put an addition on our cabin. built a small carryout restaurant. demolished two houses on another property we acquired close to our homestead.

So once again we are looking for some people to help with the next projects. The plan is to build  a large scale aquaponic greenhouse. We want to grow rainbow trout and freshwater prawns in tanks and veggies in grow beds.

We are located in West Virginia and the county has no building codes for housing and as a matter of fact no commercial zoning, that is how we managed to put in a restaurant on our property. 100% legal.

I have a half acre parcel to sell if someone is interested in not living on our property. it has a solid block foundation that can be built on and has city water,sewer and gas already on it. 

The cabin on our property is small 8’x12′ unfinished inside but could be made livable fairly easy.

What we are looking for is help building the greenhouse and maybe someone that can bake and help cook at the restaurant a few hours a day with pay. Ideally we would like a couple since we only have the one cabin as of now. you can look us @ for the restaurant.

My hopes are fading as far as outside help goes but here we go again. LOL
