I found this book at my dad's house several years ago. I've just turned to page 301 to read about The 1980s Survival Cabin.
The author claims a survival cabin can be built for about $2000. He tells me it will be adequate in size, attractive from the outside and inside, permanent, and can be built easily by unskilled labor in about two weeks, with only hand tools.
He made these claims in 1979. I wonder what it would cost now.
I'll also need a very quiet and flat piece of land, with at least one magnificent tree.
