If this Net Income figure is less than the amounts you calculated above, then you are not developing the tract of land to its highest and best use.

Expert advice, for free; can't do better than that. I've had a lot of ideas that quickly turned out to be full of holes. Sadly, many of them after I was in deep.

mabye a real good friend would offer to shovel some dirt, or put some other sweat equity into the project, to offset the prohibitive costs mentioned above. By bringing pipe tools, and other hardware needed. Jimm Zi/
