It is not something that I ever did before, but I guess that you can pick and choose Texas power companies. I moved across the Red River, but it is really just a few miles South on Interstate 30 from where I had been living. Of course I sort of decided to move here for Tax reasons. I found a cheap piece of land just across the State line and I realized that if I moved a few miles and changed my residence to Texas I would not have to pay State income taxes. It makes a good bit of sense to me, but of course I am not working in just one state. I am working out of my truck. I am the company for the most part, but I hire other guys when I have to have help and I have a guy who helps me out about one third of the time.
At any rate I have built the house and now I have to build a shop. I have plenty of land, but I have to work on getting the zoning people to give me the permits. This is more of an agricultural areaand so far the county zoning commission is not acting like they want to move. I get the feeling that they will eventually let me put up a shop, in fact they kind of suggested that I build the shop and then not tell them what I am doing. Apparently if I built a building and did not call it my place of business they would not have any problem. The issue seems to be whether or not I can locate a business at this address, not whether or not I can build a shop on my land and actually run my business from it.
