What is so different about living in the country versus living in town? There are some very important differences and there are some very important decisions to be made.
When we made our move from a small city to living way out in the bush, we already had some of the necessary equipment. We still had a lot of purchases to make, including tools, wood splitter and other things. The costs add up.
It is a guarantee that you will be spending more money to get set up properly. Some people like to do that right away; others like to buy tools and equipment on a cash basis. This just means it will take longer to get everything to make your homestead really efficient.
I wrote about moving to the country a while ago, then we decided to add even more information in an ebook.
Our ebook, 15 Things to Know about Living in the Country will explain more about the various things you need to think about (and plan for) when making a move to some land.
You want to make these decisions before you end up buying the wrong piece of property!
It’s obvious that country dwellers are farther away from the grocery store and the coffee shop, but you might be surprised that there are a LOT of other differences.
Grab this informative short ebook that will get your brain in gear, thinking about all the other things that are going to be different for YOU.
Sure some things might be simple to figure out, but there are quite a few differences that you would never ever even think of.
Questions to Ask Yourself about Country Life
All kinds of questions come up such as:
Don’t know your neighbours in the city? Think you would like it the same way in the country?
You may want to rethink that. My book will explain why it’s good to at least talk to your neighbours!
Have you thought about your water supply? Is the property on county water, town water or will you have your own well?
Bonus points if you can find property with a creek running through it. Water is always so important in the country side.
Roads and Driveways
Will you be living on a paved road? Unpaved? Gravel road? Is it maintained?
Who maintains the road? How often is it graded or leveled, if needed?
Will your current vehicle be able to be used once you move?
Will you need to buy another vehicle, such as a truck?
Are you going to need new snow tires in order to get anywhere in winter?

Soon, you’ll be coming up with more of your own questions about country life and whether it will suit you.
You’ll start thinking of all the other important things you need to make decisions on.
Everyone is different and everyone’s priorities are different too. What are YOUR priorities when it comes to living out of town?
