I’m pursuing the American dream of home ownership just like everyone else (although my dream house is probably half the size of yours and will include a few goats).
I don’t want to work until I’m 80 to pay off my mortgage and other debts. Instead, I’m planning for a life of reasonable self-sufficiency through a WNC Homestead. I’ll happily grow my own vegetables if it means I can retire at 50.
