Here I go again, planning and scheming my next move. I was looking online for another shed and thought I would buy the biggest one that they have and turn it into a small house. Well, it turns out that they build up to 1500 sqft. garages so that isn't really a small house at all. I found another company who had cheaper prices called The Original Shed Co.. I think I have driven by that place a hundred times but never knew they built anything larger than the typical garden shed.
Anyway, this got me thinking about building a house in stages. I mean, I could get a construction loan and hire a contractor and get a nice house and a 30 year mortgage or I could pay as I get the money and build in stages. I wasn't sure how to do that before but now it looks pretty easy. The shed company would take care of the foundation and building the shell, I could do the plumbing and greywater, I could add solar panels when I earned enough money for that, and I could finish the interior little by little.
It's just an idea if I ever want to move out of the mobile home. Or maybe I would like a real garage to park my car in where the pack rats won't get it. Or maybe I would like an art studio that is away from the dogs. Whatever I decide, I know I need about $15k if I want to get a 500 sqft garage/building. That is certainly attainable if I really want it.
