    You would have to call the electric utility and a well drilling company.

    depends how far the last power pole is from the house. Well depends on the depth required to hit water.

    It can get very expensive quickly.

    Why would you have to have utilities? If it's just a get away place to go hunting and such. Why not use the outhouse and a wood burning stove, then bring your own water.

    Or even TWO zeroes! :) Because three acres really isn't that big...

    Before I clicked the link I was going to post "check how much the property taxes are" - but they *can't* be much on something like this.

    If its only a hunting cabin, not long term occupancy, Id look at a solar panel or two, maybe a small generator if you absolutely need it. Poles get expensive quick!!

    It's close to the Tennessee River and would see some Summertime use. I would like the electric for fans or AC. I could make due without the water and plumbing and I would use wood heat for sure.

    No doubt but it would add another 40k to the price.

    I think the property abuts a large tract of land owned by a corporation or something. I think I would have easy access to that as well.

    I recently had to have a well dug and they went down 252 feet which is 130 into the water level, so I won't have to worry about droughts. Put in a 1.5hp well pump motor and the whole thing ran approx. $14000.00

    Big Sandy isn't a bad drive from Jackson. It's in the middle of nowhere if that's what you're lookin for. Close to the river too. Hell I'll even stop by and visit from time to time.

    Yep that's what I'm looking for. I think this cabin is about 2 miles from Lick Creek. I wonder if there's any problems with break-ins or vandalism in that area. Meth is a real problem in the rural areas in West Tennessee.

    I run across some deliverance kinda people around those parts from time to time. I'm sure break-ins are a part of life for some folks. Get to know your closest neighbors. Damn good fishin close by no matter what you're lookin to catch.

    Good place to take a new GF for the day or night and no one else know where you are.
