Problems Do Come Up

It seems that no matter how hard you try or how well you plan, problems do come up from time to time. However, it seems that we keep running into one problem after another. It really does suck, but I guess when things finally work out, hopefully they will be that much better.

We have yet to make the goat pen so they cannot get out. The wind out here is no joke and the fence lines keep getting knocked down. So at the moment Aarron is using the neighbors fence to hold ours and he blocked the goats in so they are not able to get out right now, but they are so rough on things so who knows how long this will really last.

Then the neighbors got a survey done on their property, but their surveyor removed all the markers from our property, which he was not surveying. A survey is costing around $2500 right now and we cannot afford this so we had to find another way to figure out our property lines.

Regrid was perfect for this. It will give the property lines and you can map out your property with it. It will not stand up in a court of law but it will show you where your property lines are. It appears the previous owners of the neighbors property changed all the fence lines and they are no longer correct. However, we were able to find our property corners with Regrid. It is a paid app, but it has a 7 day free trial which is what we used to be able to do this. After the trial, I just canceled the subscription and didn’t have to pay for it. However, it would be a great app to pay for because it’s only $7.99 a month on the Iphone.

So even though problems do come up, there is usually a way to solve them on the cheap. When homesteading, (at least for us) this is an important aspect because we don’t have a lot of money right now. So the cheaper that we can do something the better it is right now.

Are there problems that you are having a hard time solving? Let’s chat about it and maybe come up with a solution that will work for you. Leave a comment below to get the conversation going.

Have a great day!
