No Green Thumb... Can you grow weeds?
Did you know… Dandelions are among the most expensive items in the grocery store. Dried sell as a no-caffeine coffee substitute for $32.00 a pound. Dandelions out-price prime rib, swordfish and lobster. They appear in produce and other sections, and even at health food and liquor stores. Many other Profitable Organic Medicinal weeds can grow here including Milk / Bull Thistle, Stinging Nettle all more, all easy to grow and more lucrative than food crops. They can make more cookie cuter homes but not more unpolluted land and in a tight economy with high demand for nature healthy foods this can be a all natural gold mine for you.

Life is all about choices and generally choices are made based on what you know to choose from. But as they say, "you don't know what you don't know" however once you do know something new it comes down to what are you going to do about it, if anything. Possibly this page can help you with some new information and a choice better suited for the new life you want to live.


Self Employed / Work From Home?  Plenty of room for that here with a Finished separate detached 1,500 square foot work shop / office area, gas, electric, water, thick concrete floors and heavily insulated including the overhead doors.  Or, you can use the lower / upper level of the house for office space which has plenty of room.   Pay yourself rent not someone else... and have your business or work at home job pay off your own mortgage and not someone else's while taking advantage of all those tax benefits.  You have plenty of space for office area and workshop with a large paved parking area you can turn a truck around in. 

Living Space?  Large house(aprox 1,000 sf per floor) with open front porch and 2.5 acre courtyard surrounded by tons of large pine trees as natures fence between you and the outside world.  Full finished lower level with it's own separate entry, main floor, and top level finished.  House has 10 rooms, 5 bed, 2 bath, and a started but not finished bathroom on lower level to make it 3 baths when done. 

Have breakfast on the totally enclosed fully windowed heated back porch with 180 degree floor to ceiling view of trees and nature or enjoy the rare and lovely Alpacas run around at the neighbors acreage or some deer that may drop in on you.

FREE Food: Nature & Grow Your Own Food?  My garden area grows hundreds of healthy organic vegetable plants each season enough to feed you for FREE all year round until next years garden.  If you want more, you have six acres to do that with.  Plenty of birds and wild life to make get you grounded and unplugged from the concrete jungle.  Come home and relax.  Have a drink on the sky chairs and watch the sunset, or have a bon fire at night with the family or friends.  I can show you how to grow food here year round see below.

Off the Grid?   This property can give you FREE heat and electric, no utilities bills (see more below).  And with your own very deep well (good Free water from Lake Michigan basin aquifer) and septic system and land for food, it would not take much for you to get totally off the grid with some solar panels, wind generator, or ground source thermal work or other easier choices I will share with you below.  In fact, two properties away they are building the country's first >> "Net Zero Energy Community" with each home on a tiny lot selling for far more than all included here.

This property and large out building can provide for you and your family most all you need to live well and survive if things in the outside world fell apart and for free too.  See more below.

Cool Neighbors:  Unlike many other places everyone knows everyone here and keeps an open eye for one another needing help and property security.  Everyone also understands the work at home concept too.  With open space like this and knowing your neighbors (unlike in the city) its safe and comforting when we hear target practice which we all have enough land for.

Horses, Pets, Animals:  Like horses?  Have Pets?  Not only can you have them here, they will love it too!  There is plenty of land to have and ride a horse around here and up the street there is a horse stable and forests trails.  Our understanding is so long as you don't add any existing structures for them you can have as many as you want with what structures you have.  Now with the 1,500 sq ft insulated building with utilities that should cover your needs... Wouldn't you think?

This is NOT cookie cutter style sub-division living. 

Live Healthy in Open Space with Nature Stress Free.
