I think it is safe to say we all could use a cabin in our life. The trouble is they can cost as much as a house. That for me is the biggest reason I do not own one. I can hardly afford the house I live in right now.
I was doing my daily research on the internet yesterday and I came across the article in the link below by motherearthnews. They have an article that shows us how they built a cabin for around $6000.
That is more in my price range and I am guessing more in your price ranges too. The article goes over all the key things you need to know and gives great advice from a seasoned cabin builder.
This cabin would make a great bug out cabin or just something as simple as a hunting or fishing cabin. If you have the land, I would build this for a workshop.
