Eventually I think I'll build a house.

Some places won't allow outbuildings in front of a residence, not sure if that applies to you.

I like Randy's comment of hiding your stuff from the street and neighbors. Put a gate at the front entrance. Anybody on your property when the gate is closed is trespassing and should be dealt with accordingly...

PS: put the graveyard in the far back...

I ran my business for 37 years on a property without proper zoning,by hiding everything in the backyard and under trees.
I had a business license and everything,they didn't care about zoning,its the neighbors that care.
So,keep your neighbors happy,don't make huge noise at night,fix the neighbors shit,and don't piss anybody off.

While I was out at my property over the weekend I met my neighbor. He has 13 acres next to my 10 acre lot. Got his land via owner financing from the same guy I got my land. He got a 20x30 pole barn online from diypolebarns and spent two years building it and finishing it into a house. Told him I'm looking at building a 40x100 building that will be a hobby workshop. Also offered to help him with some fencing when I run my fencing. Small world too...happens to buy chicken feed from my job.

I'm going to stick with putting my building to the back. Though I may move it a little to the left and to the front of where I have it marked now. This will give me the option of adding to my living space in the future with a basement area. Maybe I'll film another YouTube video at my land this weekend.

Basements are a thing of the past around here with most going to slab heat

If I were building new, the only reason I would have a basement is for a bug-out room. Or maybe a wine cellar or to grow some 'shrooms...

Our house in Alberta doesn't have a basement, and can't say I miss it. No water concerns, no damp areas, no dark rooms with crappy window placements.
