The old man and I are looking for something to 'base camp' out of during the summer while we do mountaineering/hiking trips.
We will be heading to check out land this summer, but I was curious about a few things before going.
We want to have road access, or at least some sort of road, so it cannot be absurdly remote (and we won't be sledding in supplies in the winter...).
So my question is .... purchasing vacant lots with road access seem fairly suburban, which is fine, but we want to literally build something that is 300-400 sq feet w/ outhouse ... and well, this might make the neighbours frown if they are in a 'real house' with a 'real toilet'.
I know their are building regulations and some areas appear to need septic or 'permanent' buildings (would that be a permanent building??), but is it possible to pick up a vacant lot with road access and build a low grade cabin??
Or is this a more remote access kind of project?
