Hi everyone! I recently got engaged and we are looking for affordable, low impact housing ideas that we could get up before winter gets here.

Does anyone here have experience navigating California building regulations? Is it even possible to do a legal, permitted building that doesn't have septic and all the other wastes of money? Maybe special regulations for "temporary" dwellings or something?

There are already 2 "legitimate" houses on the 200-acre property, and we'll probably only live there for the next 4 or 5 years while getting our own property lined up -- which is why we want to spend as little as possible, and learn as much as possible on this first round.

Can't wait to stop paying rent and eliminate my commute!

Thank you so much for any help you can give!
