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.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
