I'm at Step #3 of my 5 year plan....

Step#1) Well, I moved out August 1st and stopped paying someone else's mortgage so they could buy more rentals....

Step #2) was to sleep in a small tent for a short time.... That lasted about 12 days, could have gone longer but 105 degrees in a tent sucks.

Step #3) was to get my Rent To Own storage building set, and it took me a couple hours to get window A/C installed and everything transferred from tent.

Step #4 will be to install electrical, insulate, install shower, Eccotemp L5(LOVE IT!!!) toilet, kitchen, washer/dryer, plumbing, PEX, etc.... and save money! (And get ready for winter)

Currently, my electric is costing me about $1.85 a day, (with this heatwave)
The house was about $260 a month for electric (I was cooling rooms I hadn't been into in months!)

Me---> <-----Craig from Craigslist




By my estimation, I've got about 71 more steps to go

Awesome, but why a shed and not a bus?

How bad are the real estate prices in the States?

I know it isn't great here on this side of the ditch.

I needed something livable in less than 2 weeks.
I lived in the little tent 10-12 days while storage building was being built... It's only $150 a month, and it will serve dual purpose... Laundry, bathroom, kitchen, and a place to sleep(short term)
The land I'm on is rent free, only pay water & electric.

And no disposable income, because "the rent's too damned high"

Understood. Do you own the land?
