What would it take to get urban land?

We’re stuck in the house with swine flu and are dreaming–what would it really take to get real estate we could build a tiny house on?

Colorado has expansive soils, and we’d need a Soil Classification survey. “Expansive soils are so prevalent in Colorado, in fact, that the University of Colorado at Denver has an Expansive Soils Research Laboratory. Their mission is to study expansive soil and design ways to keep construction damage to a minimum. If you’ve got a tough question about expansive soils, you might give them a try. Their phone number is (303) 556-2362.”

NRCS has a website on soil classification.
