The price of the property was...expensive! I did not get a good deal on it, but my wife and I tried to talk the owner into selling for about 6 years. It was worth it to us. The foundation and cabin materials came to roughly $18k. That doesn't cover all of the beer, food, and gas to get there of course. Garage sales, and Craigslist are a guy's best resource for material shopping. The two triangles are the only windows I bought. You'd be surprised at the stuff your buddies just want to get out of their house.
