Best Places to Build Your New Log Cabin

Aug 17, 2007
Whether you buy your plot or rent it from Uncle Sam at a pittance, it`s your duty to study this article to learn just how and where the land lies.

There are over a million fine campsites available in the D. S. today many of them can be rented as little as $1000 a year.

CHANCES are that you have already given some thought to the land you will build on. You may already have the deed in your pocket. On the bet, however, that you still may be speculating on whether to get that fine lake front lot, or the exhilarating mountain slope location with the tremendous view, we`ve planned this article.

If you are at the undecided stage, and one piece of countryside looks like any other to you, perhaps we can be of some help. First of all, every strip of land in America belongs to someone, either an individual, a corporation, or a governmental agency. It naturally follows that most land you see and like for cabin building purposes will have a price on it, although that price may not always be within pay check range.

Don`t settle on or for the first parched plot you come to. Consider everything from glistening peaks beyond wild pine lined lakes to the lush, regal backdrop of a willow draped riverside.

Even eliminating land that individuals, corporations, and governmental agencies won`t part with for any price, and cutting away those sites which are available for a price, but too steep to consider, the estimate is that there are close to a million and a half good campsites available in the United States. Today. Now. All around you.

Here`s the best way to go about finding the one perfect site in the United States for your cabin: You`ll need detailed reference works if you`re serious about getting that perfect site. These references contain valuable information about where they are exactly located, how to appraise property like an expert and maps of the site you will decide upon. Some of the best booklets and pamphlets come from the government printing office, and are relatively inexpensive.

Get these if you can by writing to: Superintendent of Documents U. S. Government Printing Office Washington 25, D. C.

Manual or the National

It may be to your advantage to rent from the government, for as little as $1000 a year for a choice site, on a long or 108 a short term lease. You`ll find Uncle Sam a fine landlord to deal with in this respect. These campsites are mostly located in the West, as are the national forests, and the supervisors are the fellows who can tell you where and when you can grab a good lease on a typical 3/4 acre plot. If this sounds like a good deal to you who are near a national forest, act fast or you may run into a waiting list!

While on the subject of government land, let`s explore further. Herein may be your best bet, for the government now has a program set up whereby they are simply waiting for private citizens to petition them for the purchase of land, and that at a very nominal price. The U. S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, Washington, D. C, has a free booklet entitled:

Facts on Small Tracts

This booklet can be of enormous help to you in copping a choice piece of government land. This booklet has listed the names of seven regional directors who administer government land. The one who administers your region is the man for you to see. It will be worth your while. By letter or personal visit, you can learn from this gent where the unreserved public lands are located. From there on it`s more or less up to you. Take a car trip, if you can, to the land he tells you is open and public.

If you find a promising site, get a survey made of the tract you like for five acres or less, or at least get a good description in writing as to its location. Then you have the right to proceed to your local BLM office, by letter or in person, and ask the man in charge to apply to have the land classified under the Small Tract Act as for sale to the citizenry. It`s his duty; he`ll do it. Then you wait. A BLM investigator will then go look the property over to make sure you`re not trying to con the government out of five square acres of uranium, or some such, and then if he thinks it might as well be on sale as not, as regards its value as a recreation or vacation site, the wheels really turn in your favor.

But this is just one of many things you can do to find land to build your log cabin home on.
