Check out this $2000 Solar Homestead

I came across this little cabin somewhere on the web a few weeks ago and really liked it. I would love to have a little cabin in the country and live in it. When I share my plans most people don’t grasp how small a cabin I’m talking about. When they do grasp how small a cabin I want they often compare my prospective cabin to the Unabomber cabin. Not the best comparison but I think his cabin would have been plenty big enough.

The cabin I have linked to is 400 square feet. I’ve lived in studio apartments that big so it shouldn’t be a problem to live in a cabin that size. Especially since it has a porch where I could spend a lot of time outside. I also like how the house is not dependent on any utility company for power or water. I’d just have to find a way to get Internet and I’d have everything I need. There isn’t a whole lot of information on the site since he is selling an e-book. It looks like the e-book contains a lot of other useful information. If I were closer to doing this I’d buy the book and I might just buy it anyway. Living in a cabin like this for part of the year would work great for my future semi-retirement plans. It would be a very frugal way to live.

Would anyone else like to live in a cabin like this or am I just crazy?

  1. Good idea – but what about land? You need to buy the land and then it has to have all the usual habitation rights – that cant be cheap? Land is quite expensive isnt it?

  2. hustler and David-Great to see that I’m not the only one who likes this idea.

    Dreamer- You can get land fairly cheap. Especially if it doesn’t have utility access. The site David linked to has some advice on buying land.

  3. Depends on where you buy – the more rural, the cheaper the land is! Andy, if you buy the ebook, do let us know how it is. I might buy it myself.
