 Hello! I've been living in a tiny travel trailer for the past 4 years in several different states, and am now settling in central Texas on a friend's raw 10 acre plot. We have city water and electrical, but no grey or blackwater hookups. I use a bucket toilet with barrels for composting, and a crude greywater sand filter. I plan on building a self-sufficient tiny house on wheels using as many reclaimed materials as possible. We haven't had the soil tested yet so no big gardens planned, but I'll probably start some container gardens here in the near future. Looking forward to sharing tips and seeking advice on this forum! Thanks.

Hey, thanks! I'm loving the weather in Texas... It's pretty much why I'm here. Not a fan of winter, especially for minimalist living experiments! I'm sure there are those who would disagree though Wink
