What a great forum, I'm glad I found it! Here is my question:
I have some vacation property in NE Wisconsin and I would like to build a smaller cabin (approx. 12x18) to use short term (2-3 yrs.) until I have the necessary time, money, and skill to construct a larger cabin. I'm thinking of building it on skids using PT lumber (4x6?) with the idea that when it comes time to build something larger I could sell the smaller cabin and it could be moved to another site. I'm not sure how possible, if at all, it would be to move a cabin that size. Any thoughts?
Instead of having the skids sit on the ground, I was thinking about possibly putting them on dek-blocks to get the wood off the ground and eliminate some of the moisture/rot problem. I found some posts here regarding building on skids, and it seems like it is not the preffered method, but given the short time frame I would use the cabin and the desire for it to be mobile, might it be OK?
