Build a little cottage with low side walls, a steep roof, sleeping loft, and lots of charm. Your weekends will be spent comfortably doing the things you love, and not repairing everything that broke or froze in a travel trailer. And it will cost no more.

Check the zoning . . .

for the county or township in which your dream lot is located before purchasing it. Many times zoning laws prohibit trailers permanently parked on lots, so you may need to build a building in which to store the trailer to comply with zoning laws. Rural counties that today encourage owners to permanently park travel trailers or mobile homes in the open are becoming harder to find. Do your homework to avoid unpleasant surprises.

Most general contractors would be able to build you a reasonable cabin for about the cost of what you're proposing, without the compromises. When I was general contracting, before I broke my leg, I would have killed for a nice project like that - either a cabin OR a shelter for your A/S.
