First of all, l shuld probably ask Bill for allowence to coppy his title, its just l like it wery much and it fits the topic perfectly l decided to show you guys my version of it.
Long story short, life heppens, roads cross and divide, all this lead us to this. Our own peace of the world. We are more or less hours from signing the papers but at this point we preety much own it. At least in our hearths.
Just before myne and JOs trip to US, l triggered the procedure of aquireing land. Not a easy task in Slovenia, they make sure farmland doesent go to waist. But we are near and l decided to share with you guys what we were up to till now.
The land is more or less rectangular in shape, 24 acres (9.4ha) in size and it consists of about half forest half farm land. All is abandoned, hilly, overgrown and far away from civilisation. This rings “no,no!” to avarage buyer but it is perfect for me.
There is a small house built of stone on the property, a small stable, cellar and workshop. Everithing except the house (built in 1800ish) is destroyed beond repair. But the house served till now and l am Sure it will for at least as much when l repair it.
The plan is exactly what the title describes. Start liveing freely off the land. Food, energy, building material… Everything. And this land alows this.
First things first. One cant live without air, water and food. There is plenty of air, food can be provided alternatively for a while, but water is key for development. So, l first focused on it.
There is a well in close proximety to the house.
30 feet away. Whenn l got my hands on it it was more like a bog thain a well. Shalow, muddy, stinky, critters in … Took me the whole last week to get to a point it started looking promising. Anyway, l will now let pictures speak.
@chris l can not upload any pictures. Says they are too big but l trimed them. Whats going on?
