And my nearest neighbor is about 1/4 mile away on the sides , and one across the street . But you can not see there place …. and they have lots on animals .. ( pigs , goats , chickens ) I have been moving my things to the property ( my Girl friend of 3 yrs are not getting along ( enough said ) ! I have a clean slate to work with as the property goes . I’m designing the house plans , and would like to be off the grid as much as possible ! ( FPL does have a buy back policy for the power ) . I have a very nice garden , and enjoyed the fresh veggies …. and i miss that ! ..
