I’m going to buy a 2000 ft2 lot from a friend some time in the next couple of months. I’m not sure what I’ll do with it, but at least I’ll own a piece of land.
My ideas so far:
Use it as a garden plot for isolating pumpkin varieties
Plant a miniature food forest/perennial garden
Build a good-sized 2-storey house on it and live there until we find something with more land
Build a tiny house (or two), plant fruit trees and flowers around them, then rent to tourists
I think the last option probably makes the most sense. Land here is ridiculously expensive and rents are moderately high. I could make my money back before too long with a couple of houses, then have some passive income. Though the mini food forest idea is also appealing. And really, we could build a full house on the spot but I’d go nuts with no yard. A little house with a little yard would be fun to build, especially if I build the furniture inside from local wood.
I took my measuring tape today (Thursday) and checked out the land. It was supposed to be 2000ft2, but on review it’s only 1600ft2. Not even enough space for a septic, with the way it’s laid out. I’ve decided to pass.
