We are in contact with a company that builds barns/pole buildings etc and recieved a quote for building a 32'X40' Gambrel Barn with a full length loft for around $25,000 on our land. This would be turned into an 'apartment' upstairs to give us somewhere to stay while up on the land(MUCH better than a hotel ) and later on after a house is built could be guest quarters or somewhere for parents to live if needed. Would this be a good choice for our first building on the land? What other buildings might we look at? We have also thought of buying a small home in a nearby town to stay in as houses are VERY cheap(to us anyway) and it would be useful to us and could be sold/rented later on.... Any advice would be appreciated. oz.
