AS - Storage/ live in protection
We are from Idaho and toying with the idea of buying winter property in a slightly warmer area, like Northern AZ or Southern Ut. See if this idea makes any sense to your experts: Buy a an appropriate piece of bare property that has water and power available. Water could be from a well or city source, we could use city sewer or go the septic tank route. We would build a storage / bunk house with a 3 sided carport attached. We would use the 25 ft AS as the primary living quarters, but storage of the tow vehicle and guests would be in the storage / bunkhouse area.
When we are ready to build a home on this property we would have a nice storage for the AS, a bunk house, and some landcaping done. We would have tied up a piece of property without having to invest in an entire home, but could enjoy the property during the 6 weeks I have off each winter. We live on 7 acres in Idaho that was just such a bare piece of farm ground and although it is much work and expense, with 100 trees (20 old trees were on the property) it is now beautiful.
If this idea makes any sense, do any of you have pictures of such a structure, or building plans?
I have found several nice pieces of property, so I am excited about the idea. My wife wishes I would move all the way to the warm country, but I need to feel the chill in the air. However the -20 here in our Valley along with fogged in days are sending me in search of a an area where the lows are +20.
