The land is as stable as the owner n'est ce pas?



If you are going to collect rain runoff I would suggest that you place those barrels underground.

I'm planning 4-6 IBC totes probably underground or in a shed next to Connie on the south side. Maybe partially underground and covered by a shed. They must be shielded from light or they'll grow algae.

The surface is all sand on my lot so stable it's not.
This is our digs in AZ for snow birding. That's a similar size structure you mentioned. 12x42. That's a 20ft connex under it. The 2500 gal water tank for RWC and we have a permitted septic for our RV. All legal and permitted. In my AZ county you can inhabit a RV if your land is in the correct zone.

Our lot is all sand too. You can still build on it. Concrete piers are 3 ft deep.

I like the idea of extending the roof to include a carport. I need to keep the RV in the sun as I have 4 solar panels literally stuck to the roof. They are Uni-Solar peel and stick. But the car would enjoy the shade. Thanks for the idea!
