Hi Mary,

I too have a "Blank page" four acre property.

My advice to you is:

1. Take the PDc if you haven't already done so ( In Wa. there is the Bullock
Brothers on Orcas Island)

2. Take your time -  start small, work outwards from a controlled front,
build on your successes.

3. Provide this list with the results of your zone/sector analysis and I'm
sure you'll get plenty of good feedback ( like I did with my question :-)
