New blood

Post by Hewjardon on Thu Mar 05, 2015 10:33 pm

Hi
We are in the process of making a move over to Huescar having recently bought a little land, complete with cave.
Have spent some time traling the forum and have distilled some super-useful infomation that is making preperation much easier. That said, there are still a lot more questions that I suspect only local knowledge can address adequently.
Anyway, just saying hello for now and looking fowad to getting stuck in
Very Happy

Thanks folks, we think the Alti plano really is a great area and suits our lifestyle to a tee.

Like everyone else that is new to the area, we have a TON of questions (even having read pretty much every post on the forum) and hopefully an equal amount to add. It will probably take us a year or so to transition from visitors to resident and in that time we have some ‘priority’ areas that we will need to deal with. I won't go into too much detail as I’ll be posting properly in the applicable areas of the forum, but these are where our knowledge gaps are….

Solar- we are off-grid and want to be 100% solar powered. We expect to have fairly high power needs, so this is going to be quite a project (and I fully expect to resurrect the solar/wind mega-thread!). Any help and advice will be appreciated.

Building a workshop- town hall planning applications, builder merchants, concrete slabs and construction. I suspect this will throw up lots of questions over the coming months.

Security- in the Huescar area in particular. As visitors initially I’m keen to know what the threats are/have been and advice in keeping a secure property whilst we are away (that doesn’t involve electrifying door knobs!).

Pool- we are thinking of a ‘natural’ pool, more of a ‘swimming pond’ than a ‘swimming pool’. Man with a JCB, block-work, waterproof membrane and shed loads of gravel, amongst other things….

Activity- we snowboard, kite-board, mountain bike, kayak, camp and hike and always appreciate local knowldge from other people that share the same interests.

Anyway, that’s plenty for now ☺
