We have electric to the property, so it will be wired. We plan on eventually drilling a well on the property, but for now we are going to set up an RV style water system. For heat, we purchased a small wood stove from tractor supply on sale last year. And we purchased a sun-mar composting toilet.

The only thing you've done wrong so far, is the fact that you only posted 6 pics! WE WANT MORE!!!!! Great looking place, I know you will enjoy it.

Ill post some more pictures through the process. Right now were framing up a couple walls for the downstairs bedroom and utility room. Its scheduled for spray foam in a week or so.

Sounds like a good plan. Only thing you may want to consider or at least plan for when finishing is the possibility of adding another heat source like propane. I started with just a wood stove and those little woods stoves will heat the place up. The downside is that the fire doesn't last for a long time like overnight or when you are gone hunting during the day. We added a direct vent wall propane heater so it will take over when the fire dies down. Also nice for this time of year when you maybe need a little heat overnight, but don't need much. Like I said you don't need to add now, but you may want to consider a location and plan accordingly in layout in case you do.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Yes, we talked about possibly adding one of those. Only issue is limited wall space. Might have to just have an electric heater or two.

Actually I would go the electric route since you will be tied on the grid as it would be less hassle than propane and for recreational use the electric wouldn't run you that much. We didn't have that choice since we were off-grid. It is nice not to have to get up in the middle of the night to get the fire going.

Yeah I believe the stove we bought it rated for 4 hours of burn time. Which is probably less then that.
