I have a property that I have been planing to rent out for some semi-passive income. The house needs so much before I could rent it out to "normal" people, but I thought I would see if any permies might have an interest in working out an arrangement. I will be extremely choosy about who I allow on my property, but I might be able to make a deal with the right person. This is located in Tennesippi between usda zones 7a and 7b. It may get down to around 0 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter, and over 100 degrees in the summer. That said, we can have 40 degree nights in july and 80 degree days in december. Tornados are obviously a risk, and the new madrid fault should be producing a significant series of earthquakes any time between now and the next two hundred years. If you think you are up for the challenge, we can consider it, but I'll play the role of curmudgeon. You could knock out a lot of PEP projects on this property.
The house needs work done in the following areas(and certainly others not mentioned)
-cooling (I lived in this house without air conditioning, and the climate is far to humid for this type of construction without it)
also work to do in regards to
-bare depleted soil
-over growth of "invasive" species
-too many ticks
-wildlife habitat (like for possums to eat the ticks)
-water supply (other than the toxic citywater)
Every plan is a little cooler if you have a blimp. And a tiny ad.
