Me and my wife our building this in Northern Michigan, on a recreational piece of property we own. I was going to build a pole bar and continue using our camper until we could afford to build a cabin. But this design allows living space and storage for the toys for a price we can afford. We just got back from working on it. I worked one day from 4:00 in the morning til 6:00 at night screwing deck boards down during a nasty snow storm. We池e trying to do as much work on it ourselves as we can to save money. We hope to have it sided and weathered in by the first week of December.

Cool! Exactly the kind of thing my husband and I have thought about building. What part of Northern Michigan?

Goodluck I hope the weather co-operates.

This is a link to the prints we found and modified to fit our needs: http://houseplansandmore.com/projectplans/projectplan009D-7504.aspx We池e building it in reverse to the picture shown. I loved the oval window over the kitchen sink. However, we couldn稚 find one that opened, so we went with a rectangular window.
