Someday you may need to move to a new homestead. Maybe you are a first time homesteader and this will be your first homestead. Maybe you’ve been an urban homesteader and are looking to move to the country. Or maybe you’ve been homesteading for a while, but life decided to take you to some place new. Sometimes it seems like even though we know our life plan, life plans itself.
My family was quite content on our 1/10th of an acre urban homestead in Portland, Oregon. Then we added a few kids. Things started getting rather tight in our one bathroom, less than 1,000 square feet home! We knew it was time to move on to someplace new, and we decided that we would take the opportunity to move near family in San Antonio, Texas. It was quite the life upheaval! Plus, we had animals, gardens, and fruit trees that all needed to be accounted for. Here are some helpful suggestions I’ve learned on our out of state move, just in case you find yourself needing to move to a new homestead too.
