First, we have to complete the sale of the land and then start to build, no reservation of lots will be allowed. That way, money would be saved on taxes. Otherwise, 19% VAT would be charged to the total amount, land plus the building.
You can hire us to build for you, build it yourself, or employ another builder, whatever you prefer, assuming that the house complies with the CC&R's. To give you a quote, we must know more about what you are looking to build and on what property.
That is good that you have many questions, will try to answer all of them.
Hello DK916, those are all very good questions!
We will have an aquaponics that will produce more greens and herbs than a community of this size can consume. The size of the aquaponics system is calculated that it will provide all the personal consumption needs of the community and have much more for sale. All the products that are not consumed by the community will be sold, and the proceeds from the sales will be used to offset the cost of maintenance of the food production and common grounds like the Clubhouse.
Our goal is to have no association fees. Everyone hates those.
As to the distribution of the food that is produced in the subdivision. This is the rule. When you purchase a lot, you are entitled to a certain set percentage of the produce of the subdivision. You can take as much as needed for you and your family for personal consumption but not to exceed that percentage. You can not take more than is needed and sell it outside or share it with somebody.
You have to understand. We are not promising to fulfill all of the food consumption needs of the residents. We would have something that people might appreciate having for free. Livestock would be limited to milk production, but we would not be able to supply everyone with meat. Same with chickens and eggs. Things that are in abundance (produce from aquaponics, fruits from trees), you can just go ahead and take it. For things that are in limited quantities, we will have a manager who will be in charge of distribution for those that will request it.
At first, we will have a conscious approach. If we see that this will not work, we will have to put stricter regulations in place.
Regarding Clubhouse fees, there would be none. We have ideas on how to provide that service at no cost to residents.
Yes, it was a 6.3 earthquake. Quite bigger than usual. The epicenter was about 60 miles away from the property. Gladly we didn’t have a big impact at all. The house was shaking for about 30 seconds, but no things flying off the shelves or anything like that.
