Is this monument to Emo Emaw going in a neighborhood or out in the country?

Like I don't want my house wall to be 10 feet from my neighbor's house wall (seems like a lot of the new neighborhoods are like this), but like it'd be nice if we had neighbors?  I'm torn on the idea of a HOA.  Would love to have some free range chickens.  Don't really need like more than an acre if that's what you're asking.  Could certainly do with less than a half acre lot.

Based on the things you are saying, you absolutely do NOT want an HOA.

Well like I don't want to live next to West Virginians, either.  I'm probably a libertarian, so like inherently against more rules, but can certainly see the value in some of them.

good grief you're annoying

If there is one thing you should know it is that you will very rarely be able to please Emo or SonofDax

the free range chickens things guarantees you will not be able to live in an HOA.  Also, free range chickens in areas not in an HOA means you will have free range dead chickens and a dog problem like immediately.

My buddy lives in this sweet as hipster neighborhood in Boise.  It's like nice houses, new, big, etc.  But there's like a co-op chicken coop.  Sounds pretty awesome but we don't have those here.

I would just drive around the neighborhood before buying any house. If you can find a nice house in a nice neighborhood without having an HOA, that's better than having to pay HOA dues and then have some busybody potentially come knocking on your door about your fence height, etc. I wouldn't let the HOA be a deciding factor either way, though.

Your sister doesn't sound all that intelligent, but sometimes smart people do dumb things, so I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt here.

I have dogs but they'd be kenneled or in the house.  Also they would point them, not kill them.  New pups might kill a few though whenever those come.  But chickens taste great so like no big deal.

I'm willing to bet that the marginal difference in taste between store eggs and fresh eggs is significantly less than the effort and embarrassment of having live rough ridin' chickens in your backyard

You could probably just buy Deez Nutz farm on credit.

find an architect you like and chances are you can :kstategrad: at them and they'll do like 100 designs for you free of charge, no contracts to sign, etc.  Then sit on it and go find a neighbor architect who is licensed but out of work who will draw their design up (kind of) and boom, build your crap and live there.

There are a thousand places online that have predesigned houses that you can buy the prints for like $100-$300.  Find one, buy it, take it to an architect and have the alter it the way you want, then ask for recommendations on things you don't know about(materials, HVAC, etc).  Then go find a builder.
