How to Grade Land – Using a Drag Sled
While you can accomplish this with a Back Hoe or a heavy Industrial Vehicle, a portable drag sled (which are available for purchase online) is an efficient way to grade your property, create unpaved roads, and remove unwanted shrubbery.
Try Compost Toilets as an Alternative to Septic Systems
If you’re buying your property as a part-time vacation home, you may not actually need to spend a ton of money on a costly septic system. If you’re only using your property for a week or two at a time, there are many affordable compost toilets online that can be suitable for your situation. These compost toilets range in price from $50-1000. They are easy, portable, and provide an important basic necessity to a small structure at a fraction of the cost of installing a septic.
Off-Grid Energy Solutions
The solar energy industry is improving rapidly, and is also becoming more affordable and convenient! If you’re off-grid, solar ground systems can provide more than enough energy to run your structure. In fact – many studies show that they can actually produce more energy than traditional rooftop systems. The ability to set these up on the ground provides flexibility in terms of their location – allowing you to set them up out of harms way, and tilted/elevated at the best angle to get the most sunlight each day. Additionally, these portable ground systems are more affordable than the traditional roof systems.
