Would it be good for the world if people could buy a house and enough land to grow a family’s worth of food for $500?
What should it actually cost to make a house? If we accept cob houses (dirt, sand, clay, straw, and water…) then would the cost of the house be more or less land + labor? And if it’s land + labor then what’s the cost?
Rural parts of the USA still go for $1,000-$10,000 an acre just buying one acre at a time. Large plots of land are available at as little as $100 or less an acre.
As far as the government is concerned, the government has land that it could just designate for housing… given to the people etc…
Why not do this?
