Made it! Met with an awesome guy at the airport that was selling a truck. Sold! Loaded up the two suitcases we brought and went to Walmart for tents and camping gear. Did I mention we’re roughing it while we build this thing?
After we got necessary tools/supplies, we went straight to the land! This was Devin’s initial reaction.
After a couple hours of work with the machete, it didn’t look so tough.
More clearing of land with machete and shovels. We went exploring and damn, 3 acres seems a lot bigger when it’s loaded with all kinds of trees and ferns and flowers you gotta get through.
Can’t remember. More digging I'm sure.
Took the day off while we wait for some people with heavy equipment to get back to us. We need an excavator or bobcat to get through a lot of this stuff and make the ground level. The land is all green, but you go down a foot and it’s straight lava rock. But smooth. It’s unreal. Anyways, we got someone who’s gonna check it out in a couple days. We went beach.
Checked out all kinds of solar options because this house is going to be off the grid. The parts for the power we want were a lot more expensive than we were planning, but we’re gonna make it work. We’re gonna install it all ourselves when the time comes.
