I am starting to see more and more of these shed style homes, they remind me of Morgan buildings. They are a glorified shed that can be finished out to turn into a living space, perfect for the rural areas with fewer or no “codes”. I am seeing these cheap, really cheap and they will usually deliver them to just about anywhere. I see lots of potential, you could start out with one and add to it, or even have multiple units for the different parts of your living areas, living room/bedroom, kitchen/bathroom, guestroom/art studio… Many of these can be had for less than it cost to buy a car.
Here are a few video examples of people who have done just this.
Of course, this is our very own Bill of Off Grid Solar Cabin fame, he and his wife, and their little chihuahua are working on getting their own off grid solar cabin set up and ready for them to live in when they retire.
I think you get the idea, so get yourself some cheap land somewhere, get one of these delivered and voila you have an instant home on the cheap!
