My partner and I (and 2 yr old daughter) have the opportunity to go live on a friends property. It may turn into a long term home,but at first we want to try it for a month or so. There is no living structure on the property at the moment. We are thinking about the possibility of a wall tent and maybe even a yurt if we decide to stay longer. What else haven't I thought of? Would love to hear any ones stories of starting form scratch and how you made it work on a small budget. I really want to do this,but am nervous about getting started!
Just a month at first?? What about a 5th wheel trailer or an older motor home? It's summer so you'll be outside a lot and if you decide to stay more permanently you could start building modularly? I'd do something like a 5th wheel with a little front landing/porch built next/on to it (without ruining the integrity of the orig vessel). You could live in the 5th wheel until you're done with it and then sell it off to regain much of your initial investment (which will come in handy for building materials and/or time off work to build and/or first/last and/or down! LOL. So many options :) A yurt wouldn't be something I'd consider for a month. Heck, I could CAMP for a month really! Any Army surpluss stores near you? Or google good old army tents?

Don't forget a tent or tarped off area for a bathroom.
I'd totally just camp, or do the 5th wheel...
