Hello again, sounds like your well on your way with planning for the new site. If you can lay it all out on paper..... building layouts, water, electric, house, etc, this will allow you to picture in your mind what it will look like. It is also easier to change something on paper vs. moving a barn or something. Another good reference is www.homesteading.com, it has general forum as well as forums for livestock, poultry,homemaking, gardening and a number of other interest related to homesteading. Till later keep on planning.

  So here is the plan
Barring any stock market disasters we should be able to retire in about 6 years. We will probably buy our land in 3 years and spends weekends and some vacation time getting it ready. We will build the barn first, so we can stow any equipment we get to ready the place.And for our home we want to build a log home. Right now we live in a 4,000 square foot house in a suburb of Dallas...I know I don't want to keep up with that much house...ever again....but I do want a large kitchen to accomodate canning and preserving food....and a large sewing and craft room. I'm thinking we might build a guest house for visiting kids and grand-kids. We are reading and learning now....I've subscribed to Hobby Farms, Mother Earth News and Grit. I also recently got this book called the "encylopdeia of country living" which is full of good and interesting infomation.
