Comment: Do the easy stuff first.

Do the easy stuff first.

You already have a large roof catchment in place. Set up your rainwater harvesting ... like yesterday. Not sure if you would be drilling into the Edwards aquifer at that location, but don't depend on that aquifer for consistent, quality water.

Secure the property with fencing, shrubbery and hounds.

Get the living quarters comfortable enough for you and your closest companion such that a quick day trip to the property could be extended several days if needed or desired.

Dream big but start with the baby steps.

This advice is coming from someone who left the city for 2.5 acres in South-Central Texas. I have zero regrets about my decision. It has been a tough few years, but I have managed to eke out a living and have built community with my neighbors.
