Not much activity in our planning but we are still talking about it. We still plan to get our land set up for an RV spot when we are in Tennessee this fall. We don't think it will take much but the first thing will be to get the land surveyed again. From there we will work with someone to help us lay out the land. Then it's on to what is needed to get the final permit for the already installed septic tank.
We'll probably have to get an address so we can get electric installed. Not sure if we will do anything with water...that's Stu's decision. LOL! The current driveway will have to be widened, gravel added and compacted. We'll lose some trees but we'll try not to lose too many.
We still love the idea of a log cabin but realize we will probably need to downsize our dream home to be realistic. We can easily live comfortably in 1000-1200 sf (consider we are living in under 300 sf now). We've found one supplier in northern GA that makes panelized homes. We plan to visit them and see their factory.
The other option we have considered is building a carriage house type building. The biggest part would be the workshop/garage area but it would be combined with living quarters. Wouldn't be a log home but would conserve on the building costs.
Nothing even close to Jell-O yet....
