in my mid-50s, seeking 1 acre of land to build off-grid – a house, a greenhouse, some pasture chicken. Spent my life traveling. Lived in Asia, Europe…Am now seeking a peaceful, low-key existence with only minimal contact with the world beyond my 1 acre.

Not weird or anything, but I figure building a house, a greenhouse, and venturing into raising chicken and gardening would leave little time for socializing.

So if you have 1 acre to sell where there is no CC&R’s or HOA and I can build as I wish- a geodesic dome or Cobhouse or just put an RV on it, would love to hear from you.

      Hi Lise and everyone else reading

      Thanks for your invite. Am a woman – though very capable of building things, even a geodesic home, on my own because I know how to rig mechanical leveraging to do all the heavy lifting for me. But, nothing would give me more pleasure than to be a part of a little community with like-minded people.

      Unfortunately, it looks like current events will make things much more difficult for me. I currently live in a Midwestern cosmopolitan city. The lockdown. The scare. Multiply all that by the fact that I am ethnically Asian. It seems like it will be a long time before the scare, the paranoia, the psychosis will fade. I respect the peoples and the values of rural North America – USA and Canada alike and will not inject my controversial self into their midst. Seems like my dream of a peaceful off-grid, self-reliant existence is off the tables. Being American, there really isn’t anywhere else I can go. I wouldn’t culturally get along in any other country, even if the people of that country “looked like me”.

      Be safe and healthy, everyone.

        Ahren, I wanted to say: don’t give up on your dream. Yes, everything is difficult now – but as long as you are healthy, anything is possible. Now more than ever, the way off grid is the way to live. I have been working on going off grid since 2017 – only now, in the middle of the pandemic, this dream is coming to fruition and I am leaving for New Mexico in two weeks. As a first generation female immigrant, I 100% feel the comment regarding your ethnicity. However, this country and its people have shown me time and time again that for every racist there is a thousand good men and women. You will be ok!
        I move into my rental tiny home the last week of April, and plan to look for a permanent home a week later. Depending on the acreage I am able to get, I would consider having a “tenant” (hate this word)…but would prefer to simply have a friend and maybe form a small co-op. Something like this:
        So, if you would like to stay in touch, shoot me an email: lifeohlife@protonmail.com
        Take care!!
