Heh, good thing I don't need you geniuses for advice.
The one place I was looking at is up the bluff from the white house. Which sits on a hill with a few other, older structures. I had looked at a building bout 3/4 miles down the road. Even lower. Across the road from the post office...if that means anything to you civil engineers..The rest of the shots are from the surrounding counties.
The challenge is getting water. Not getting too much. Plus you typically can't build in an unregulated flood plain.
