    My husband and I have just sold our house, bought a fifth wheel to live in and are now looking to find the right location to move and build off grid! After researching a ton we are highly considering Idaho and we are planning to take our first trip out next weekend. I’m looking for people to talk to and to gather information from for further info. Specifically about building/zoning (where are they most relaxed with that? So we can build eco friendly?) Gardening conditions etc. Thanks!

    • Hi Jessica and welcome to the Mountainview Off Grid Living Blog. We live in southwest Idaho and have been looking for land so I can help you with all the information we have. Good areas, bad areas etc. Give me a call 208-615-6331

      Hi Jessica and Hubby, I sent a comment the other day but I’m not sure if they go straight to you or if I needed to do this reply choice instead.We live in Grangeville, Id. Population only 3500! Its located in Idaho County which is the largest and most relaxed county in Idaho. We are centralized between the Salmon, Snake and Clearwater Rivers for Salmon and Steelhead fishing. Gardening, hunting, berrypicking , 4 wheeling etc. is just afew past time happenings here. Great place, great people wouldn’t live anywhere but Idaho. (we came up from Arizona about 32 years ago.) Anyway, feel free to call or e-mail. We’ll answer anything we can. Have a safe trip and maybe we’ll hear from you. Robin and Joe Schnell 208 983-9705 jrparadise2@yahoo.com

    Hi Jessica, My Husband and I live in Grangeville Idaho which is located in Idaho County a huge plus! Please feel free to call with any questions about this area. We do have property for sale here and our house which is perfect for a prepper (including concrete room). Only reason we are leaving Grangeville is the need to get closer to kids and Grandkids when things fall apart! Other wise we would never leave this area. It offers EVERYTHING to survive. We are staying in Idaho, would never leave this beautiful State. Call if you would like 208-983-9705

    trogg, (not my real name – OPSEC) I retired in July of last year. I was looking for property in the Orofino area, but now I think the panhandle would be more to my liking. Is there anyone up around Bonners Ferry that would like to show me around? I am single so I need a new network of friends , if I move there. I know you need to be careful these days, but when you get to know me you will find I’m a rather nice right wing guy, for lack of a better term. I really have to get out of the Seattle area. It is going down hill fast. I’m looking for an inexpensive house on sight where I can garden and hunker down. I would also would like to get into hunting and fishing. Contact me at the following email address if you know of any properties or just want to show me around. trogg90@gmail.com PS I hear bonners ferry is a real friendly place. That would be a nice change from western Wa.

    Hi ya’ll. I’m currently seeking out property near Lewiston Id. I could possibly transfer my near Seattle job there. So preferably I’d like to live within an hour or so drive. I found a property on Waha Lake 20miles south. Thought I’d ask here to see if anyone new about the area. Their thoughts ? Thanks a bunch

  6. Hi Amy. I don’t know where your job is close to Seattle but it is several hours drive from Lewiston to the Seattle area. What is it exactly that you are looking for in property?

  7. Amy says:

    I can transfer to Clarkston Costco. So we’re looking around lewiston.

      Look at Owyhee County properties—-WAY cheaper taxes and from highway but non crowded, to absolutely remote acreages available. I am a Rancher and also own many properties that are now available—from S/W exposure viewsheds on dry ground to Timber property near Silver City. My health dictates some downsizing. I’d be glad to visit with you.
