national forest summer homes program vs private property? although i like the idea of people being allowed to own a cabin on national forest land i do not like that they have architecture and paint color restrictions. what do you think of this idea: buy a big timberland and along existing roads allow a tiny cabin footprint piece of land to be broken off for people to buy and build their vacation cabin with no restrictions by the surrounding timberland owner? this way the forest can be protected but with no restrictions as far as how you use or live your life unlike nat forest does not allow winter use. i once saw a 14,000 acre timberland that was protected and allowed 42 cabins to be built in the specific spots. how can we protect forests and at the same time allow people to own a cabin in the woods? the national forest has like 14,000 privately owned cabins on their land with special use permits.
