I guess this question goes without saying. But can you just build whatever you want on the property?

I'd love  to come by and just throw up some nylon tent, like a 40 foot x 20 foot  longhouse. Spray foam insulation, sandwiched with a plaster board. I'd floor it with mud bricks, and throw vinyl marble on the entrance.. it would look awesome. Inside i'd create some electrical wiring, and put solar panels all over the top.

Then again.. it'd be just better to build a small house then...

So is there a lot of coding enforcement there?
IF there isn't... i'd love to come there with a lot of tools.. and just build with you guys.

I'm overweight... so its going to be rough for a few months, until i get into the groove.

Let me know,
