Our plan has been fairly direct. Pay off remaining debts, purchase a property, and save until we can afford to build our house. It’s the last part that’ll take longest. We plan to do the majority of the work ourselves but it is stil going to be expensive. Plus we wanted to have enough money saved so that we don’t have to worry about a new job immediately. We’ve planned for five years, but it may take longer. Because of that we’ve been thinking about adjusting the plan. If we purchase a home near here then we can be building equity and developing our homesteading skills while we save. It’d be a much better option than renting for the next 5+ years. Of course we have awhile before our debts are paid but once that’s done we’ll look for a place nearby.
