My wife and I have gotten ourselves moved to a rural area in southeast Texas. Now we have to get the water, power and sewer hooked up.
One of the issues with moving to a rural area is you have to figure just about everything out for yourself. The power and phone companies will take care of their end, but you still have to get the septic tanks and field lines put down, and you have to get someone to drill the water well.
Living in a city is easy. To get the water turned on just called the water district and get them to turn on the water.
But out here in a rural area you have to pay someone to drill a water well, which can get very expensive.
The get the septic put down I will either have to borrow or rent a small excavator. And then I have to have someone that can run the thing. When dealing with heavy equipment experience counts.
The chickens were let out of their new chicken yard yesterday. From the looks of things they had a field day digging through the tree line.
Projects in the pipeline:
Water system for the chicken yard
Build a deck on back of house
After the weather cools off I want to start fencing off a 10 acre field for cattle. I would really like to be ready for cattle by late spring 2014.
I am not sure when I will be ready for pigs, but I would like to raise my own swine.
