    I have only just noticed this particular forum, I think it is a good idea, I seem to spend more time on my own little piece of land than I do out and about in the woods these days.

    Me too, it's been a while since I was here on BCUK I missed the newer stuff. Looks like a great thread there and I shall read it with interest. My own "Cabin in the woods (with WIFI)" is progressing. of sorts. The main room is much more livable now and I can swing a cat without hitting too many breakable things. My added bit of good news is a neighbour with a big warehouse in the local town has offered me space in there to store all my extra stuff I can't store in my 6m x 6m house.

    See my cabin in the woods signature below if you want to have a read of what I've done up to December last year. Yes I know I NEED to update the blog, sorry. :eek:

    A "homestead" would normally be considered as a single family. That gives the freedom and a measure of independence that most people seem to be seeking when they consider homesteading as such.

    A "group buy" would certainly be possible but it would change the dynamic in the way you and Rik have suggested. Rather that an independent lifestyle, you'd actually just be creating a new village in and of itself (albeit themed to a common interest) A colony or commune by another name.

    I have been around this sort of lifestyle and it is not good except as an adventure for a couple years. https://youtu.be/n-FMYJNcgKo for a better look.
