    are you sure? i was on vacation in California recently and saw a house some guy built himself ... at least that's what they kept saying... i think it was called "Hearst's Castle" or something like that...

     I built my own house in San Diego, if you google " house on a vacant lot" you will find the radio story on it, and some pics.  $11,000 for one house built in three months on weekends.  Never say Die!

    I had an idea to build one of these i was going to build it kinda like a wood lodge with long pieces of wood (half of a circle ) then have a 2"gap for electronics insulation etc then plasterboard and wallpaper so it'd look professional. when i used to live in the county with a huge back yard i was thinking of digging a hole quit deep just smaller than the shed and putting supports in etc and having a shed with a basement lol .

    Gee, one usually goes to living in their parent's basement before they end up living in a shed in the backyard. It normally goes basement, shed and then a non running van down by the river.

    If I had this I would so put in real drywall, a couch, coffee table, a toilet, air conditioning, plumbing, a TV, a mini-fridge, a mini-stove, a place for cans, a sink, and a bunch of stuff to make it a mini-house. My friend has a mini-house like that and we lived in there for like a week or two and it isn't camping. Not living either. Its Luxury! Complete awesomeness without parents yelling at you.

    #1, that is not a playhouse! i sleep in it all the time! i only have an air matress and don't have a tent or anything! #2 it's not like it's this big amazing huge cabin for camping, most of those have actual matesses and heating. #3 i don't usualy go out there in the day, only at night, oh ya and i have slept out there in the middle of the winter. also, i want you to keep your coments to youself, i found your comment VERY offensive! you talk to me like i'm 9! i'm 14 THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!

    While I am genuinely sorry for hurting your feelings, I must say that you'll have to get used to people critiquing your work here. You can't make people keep their comments to themselves. It's a forum. We comment on each other's ideas. I just have a different idea about what camping means. Don't let it bother you. If I were 14 and had a shed, I'd sleep in it too. Now, if you could cook your own meals out there on an MSR, that would be cool...

    That is a pretty cool private area, you're just missing an Internet hookup.

    Your going to think I am so weird. I have a very sweet 10x12 prefab shed with insulation, drywall, hardwood flooring, wood stove, kitchen, fold down single bed, port a john, front porch shower, solar on the roof and nice interior and exterior lighting sitting on 5 totally un-buildable acres on a ridge top at 9650 feet up in the Sierras. No access except park a half mile down below and walk up, no possibility of cellular connection or utilities. Oh, and the view, 360 degrees of the high Sierras for 80 miles. My buddies call it the million dollar cabin. Total price, including the land $2800. For the past 10 years its been the envy of anyone who ever visited.
