I have a piece of property in Western North Carolina (1.25 Acre). The local hardware store went out of business and they had a big sale. They had a guard shack at the lumber yard that I got for $1500. It’s 12’X8’. It’s cedar on the outside, shingle roof, double paned storm windows, wired for electricity (inside & outside light) and a wall mounted A/C. The inside is partially finished with Pine planks. Since this building was built on site of the hardware store I had to build a sled to put the building on in order to move it. I spent $125 in pressure treated 6x6 lumber to make the sled. I had it moved from the hardware store to my property. I had it put down by my creek. I added stairs, Blinds on all the windows, refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, space heater, double sized futon, a hutch and a flat screen TV w/DVD player. I still need to put a better floor in. I have rubber mats that I picked up at the flea market on the floor. I also need to finish off the inside with pine planks and frame out the windows.
