I know a big road block for many of those wanting to build a house on wheels is where to actually build it. Many of us (including myself) live in areas where don’t exactly have some spare land or workshop to build in, or even so much as a big driveway where our neighbors wouldn’t feel the mess of construction was completely offensive.
I’m a lucky duck, hole-in-one lucky. While I live in one of the largest suburbs of Chicago, my dad owns a “farm” a little over an hour west of here in the country.
I put farm in quotations because that word usually means agriculture, livestock, overalls…but it actually is not really a farm, despite that we call it that. We have no cows or pretty ponies (trust me, I tried). We do have corn though, this IS Illinois. The corn-grower is not us however; my Dad rented the land to a real farmer who makes us look good so we can call it a farm. Yee-haw.
On this big chunk of land sits a house and a big outbuilding on the back of the property. My father is a project man and has tons of tools and such back there, perfect for a gal with very little tool-assests to construct my wittle house.
Really truly lucky, since I don’t think the neighbors of our townhouse in the ‘burbs who appreciate me building a house in the driveway.
Come on in and let me give you a tour of thee farm.
I’ll be giving a much better peak inside the back building soon..I scored a whole bunch of construction goodies inside!
