ok. here we go. i have been thinking about my own place for awhile now. here is my plan. i get 3-5 acres of land zoned residential/commercial i put my shop towards the back of the property and my house to the front. 2 seperate drives to the house and shop seperated by trees. back wooded area w/ drive (behind shop) for dumping leaves grass trees etc. i have been thinking and looking at the pros and cons but i would really like to know am i dreaming or is this idea feasible. i dunno, i think i may be getting ahead of myself but it sure as hell beats paying rent to someone else on a shop home etc. any of your ideas thoughts would be appreciated. can all this be done given the right area for around $150,000 / $200,000 like i said anything is help. can't hurt my feelings none.
