In a perfect world they would be the same
feeding people is expensive, so will probably want to go in early spring when sleeping in a tent doesn't suck. then we can grow our own food and sell excess produce to raise funds for further expansion.
should we actually build a farm + buy animals
And there's always the family hens and hundreds of cans of soup
you dont have to be survivorman from day 1
Ideally, it'd be a hotel for a week till a log cabin is built.
As much as a lot of you will hate this, I suggest getting some cheap trailers on the site
Until we build some cabins and what not
i wouldn't mind sleeping in maybe a hammock or something
of the first cabin
We could do shipping contanors.
that would cost a lot though
much more than a week's worth of sweat in building a house
perhaps two weeks, though
@ram3n that's my point. 6 men should be able to build a log cabin in a week. Then we keep clearing land to plant crops and grow a pasture.
I'm telling you, call me white trash all you want but holding your nose and getting a cheap trailer will keep you alive long enough to build permanent housing lol
white trash aren't going to go out in the wilderness and forge a life for themselves
Just don't want the first wave of us to freeze to death out there in tents
Or get sick
@K_Wagner if our ancestors could build a house that lasted the winter without modern tecnology we should be able to do it too.
We would be starting during the spring.
yeah we'll probably need a *lot* of insulation
That's more reassuring
or I don't know, a fire place.
unfortunately, because of how we've modernized as a society, we haven't really needed to pass down the knowledge of building homes that will last
so it'll be interesting
mossy rock has an average winter low of 20F. That's 40F warmer than my home of wisconsin.
20f isn't that bad
i've had worse in indiana
what's the average high?
Remember also that our construction will need a degree of permanence, since we're not just building a camping lodge for a bunch of bros, we're going to bring in our wives and families as well
And 20f is nothing, I'm glad to hear that
Grew up in Illinois lol by the lake
