One of the most frequent comments I get from potential clients is, “I recently moved to our site, and have no clue where to start.”
It’s common to be immediately overwhelmed by the possibilities. How big should your garden be? How many fruit trees do you want and where do you plant them? Should you have a greenhouse? How about chickens?
Before you get too involved with the innumerable options when you google ‘homesteading’, check out my video. In it, I take you through My Top 3 Questions to Ask When Designing your Homestead. These are questions that you want to answer before you start your planning process:
- What are your goals for your site?
- What time do you have to dedicate to your site on a daily/weekly basis?
- What type of budget do you have for implementation?
Even if you’ve already started implementing your site plan, these are helpful questions to revisit. Answering these questions will help you develop a clear understanding of the vision for your homestead, and a realistic plan that fits your lifestyle.
