I'm throwing around a few ideas for where to build a small log cabin on my land.
1. I've got a small knoll that offers a view, but would leave the cabin exposed to the elements and highly visible from a distance.
2. Or, I can build it in some timber that would shelter it from the wind and blowing snow. But, I would have little to no view from the cabin itself.
It would be nice to enjoy the view from the front porch, but I also worry about it being visible to people with ill intentions (unfortunately, they're out there...)
In either case, the ground is about the same, well drained, rocky soil.
