It's been a while but here's an update. We decided to stay in a camper. It was offered to us by an awesome neighbor or and we decided to make it work. We've been building all winter and have made quite a bit of progress. We are actually living full time in a 10x20 section of the main level now. The driveway we cleared has been usable but we know it needs to be a priority as soon as the thaw happens. Then on to chickens and rabbits. Heres some pictures of what we've done so far.

John, we will be installing a ridge pole (Douglas fir log) and rough cut 2x10 sheathed with 5/8" CDX plywood ice and water shield and finally metal roofing.
