Budget minded bug out retreats
There's a thin line to ride...
... between living comfortable preparing for uncertain futures, and being broke due to your preps. For those of you out there that want a bug out location but can't necessarily build a home somewhere, here are some cabin kits available that take a lot of work (and cost) out of the equation.
Geodesic Domes - These homes are for someone with more eclectic tastes.
However, you can get this one for under $3,000.
Granted this model doesn't come with siding so that would be a small, but additional cost to consider.
Lillevilla Escape - This cabin is for the prepper who isn't into unorthodox homes but plans on more than likely being alone at their bug out location.
At 113 sqft, this comes off as more of a glorified shed. However, at under $5,000 this could take care of what you need if you use the space wisely.
Allwood Bella - This cabin is now moving into the tiny home market coming in a 237 sqft with an 86 sqft loft.
Priced at under $18,000, to me this cabin is probably where a couple may want to start there search.
Allwood Eagle Point - This essentially is a home. It's 1108 sqft and has all the amenities you need in a home (bathroom, kitchen, living spaces, etc.).
Priced at under $47,000 you could have yourself a 3 bedroom, 1 bath at a fraction of the cost.
Allwood Eagle Vista - This is the "Ah yeah" sized cabin. At 1336 sqft, this cabin has everything you need.
Essentially you're getting a 5 bedroom, 2 bath cabin for under $65,000! If that's not a great investment I don't know what is.
Whatever you choose...
... any of these homes would make a fine retreat on a secluded piece of property. Maybe you never need to use it for its intended purpose. Use it as a vacation retreat instead.
Owning property is usually a good investment. Especially if you can can invest for less than your return would be. Remember, you don't need much. A quarter acre of farmable land and a house will be enough to get your through tough times.
