Hi Everyone I have recently purchased 52 acres in Savannah TN (southeast of Jackson near the TN river). I am planning on building my own log home by hand and want to see if anyone would like to join me on my land to build their own log homes as well and create a homestead Log Home community? I would like to have a community barn/livestock, chickens for eggs etc, an organic raised-bed garden, have well water with rainwater collection systems and eventually go completely off grid with a combination of wind/solar power. For now I will be using grid-power and I plan on starting construction of my own home on the land in April. This area has great schools, plenty of jobs locally and within a good driving distance, and a great mild climate. The property itself has springs, a creek, plenty of mature trees and pasture land and is located in a very nice area near a golf-course with up-scale homes which are all on large lots (no postage-stamp subdivisions nearby.) The TN River, a large lake, and numerous state parks are within a few miles, it is a very pretty area. I already own the land, so I'm not selling anything here, nor looking for anyone to "buy in" on anything. I'm more interested in finding like-minded people to join me and live as a community without reliance on a daily trip to Wal-Mart and with similar values and outlooks on nature and on living in harmony with the wild animals and eco-system that is both on and surrounding this beautiful piece of property. I am very intersted in opinions, suggestions, and ideas regarding this and how to make it possible and how to make it all work. :confused: So please, post-away and let me know what you think. I think I've got a great idea started, now I just need the people and the ideas to make it a reality. I'm looking forward to hearing what everyone here has to say good or bad. Many minds are better than one! Thank you everyone, and have a great day!
