Hippie Neighborhood In 2017- Getting Off The Grid





When I was a little girl I loved hats, no shoes and being free. My oldest brother once said " You are a flower child and you were born in the wrong decade to be doing this now." I was born in the 1960`s and this was told to me in the late 70`s and early 80`s.

I am not sure but I assume that when people are headed off the grid that they do own there own little piece of ground so that they can grow food, raise animals for food and have a set up for getting off the grid, unless the land owners agree for you to alter the power system and plow up the grass, many do not care as long as you pay the rent.

Year after year I have invested in small lots of land, I do have four that are side by side and could make a huge homestead, if that is what I want to do with that land. But this past few months I have this urge to set up tiny houses, with solar power and well water, the water is cheap in that area so maybe just solar? I could place one on each lot and they would have privacy and plenty of room to grow food but in this area farm animals are not allowed except chickens and rabbits. ( It would be awesome if they were vegans!)

Before I head off to the land of dreamers I will do the math, How much to hire the land to be cleaned off, how much would it cost to put in septic tanks, run water lines for the meters and buy the small houses, as hulls, and redoing the insides myself. Yes, it would cost to have this dream neighborhood of mine come to be, but nothing is impossible of its Gods will.

How about you? would you live in one of my tiny houses, in my solar powered neighborhood?

  3. A novel idea. Ive seen tiny home neighborhoods on youtube. And recently read a (fictional) novel where townspeople ran their own town and everyone had to chip in and do a job there to keep the place running. They had a nice community garden that everyone had to work in, and such as that.
