Sounds sensible and doable. A 'tiny house' would be marvellous!

Have tried and failed before... a little nervous getting back on the merry-go-round. Trying to keep it simple this time - small group, single title, far enough out to be affordable, in the 'edge' zone between rural and residential. Get land, settle it, 'sustainabalise' it, maybe subdivide later. But focus on small and soon, the rest can happen over time.

Sounds amazing. In another lifetime I was lightly involved in a 'City Farm' project which never really got off the ground. Apart from $s a major stumbling block was BCCs attitude to grey-water and black-water recycling. A lot has changed and for the better! What came out of that was Northy Street and Kookaburra Eco Village.

Could be a great place to live especially for singles.

Good for you Russell on arriving at this starting point.

Personally looking for something similar north.
