    No building codes here and septic is required under 10 acres, I was wrong before. The phone company will hook up a phone with a 1500 watt inverter and 800 amp hrs worth of batteries.

    P.S. Forgot… Water!!! How do you handle it? Do you harvest enough, have it trucked in, or buy jugs of it? Do you take laundry to town? Thanks!

    Hi Frann, how it is going for you out there? I have looked into this for a while (several years) and thought abour buying 20 acres for a vacation spot and then deciding if I want to make a permanent move. However I am 57 and worry about insurance and healthcare. I follow John Well’s blog as well. Any older folks moving out that way?

    I do not have a cell phone but am told T-Mobile works. The cell phones only work along paved roads where the towers are. I had a land line put in.
