My DH and I are thinking of building a home in Colorado. We want to build a home on a big piece of property near Denver like an hour or so away. Like 5-10 acres, what is a good affordable place that is close to the city, but not too close, and has good schools. Also a place that is crunchy wold be nice

Do you mean an hour from downtown or an hour from the suburbs?

What do you mean by "crunchy"?

What do you consider affordable?

well that was a bad choice of words, I ment liberal, not consevative christian crap I have had to put up with when I lived in the south

What do you consider affordable?
I want a place where we can buy lots of land to build that is not too expensive like in the 100,000 for a decent place

I don't know land costs around here, having never bought any, but there are not a lot of homes on 5 -10 acres anywhere within an hour of downtown. Your best bet would be to come out and look around; be prepared to find something else.

Looking at the ads for acreage in this weekend's Denver paper, I'd say that your budget up to $20,000 acre is possible if you head NE of the city.

Try looking along the Hwy 85 corridor heading toward Greeley.

If you're willing to be a bit further away, you can get more land for your dollars in a larger parcel.
