I plan to build a home on several acres after my kids have grown and left. What type of home would you build and why? I want my home to be low maintenance, safe, and very energy efficient.
Arrrgggg... just wrote a nice long post... and got logged out when I tried to post it.Has anybody done haybale construction, underground homes, or any other alternative building technique.
I want to build something comfortable as well. If I can provide my own utilities, I won't have as many bills. That stretches my retirement savings further. If I'm not spending money, they will have a much harder time taxing it. My kids will inherit my place and my lower cost of living if they want it. Besides, if we ever get to a SHTF situation, my life won't change as much.Isn't survival supposed to be rugged but retirement is supposed to be comfortable? Why have a survivalist style retirement?
