Someone once said that, since they’re not making any more of it, land is the best investment. Problem is, once you have land, getting some kind of structure on it can be a real drag on your bank account and most frequently involves a lot of contractors that may or may not be trustworthy and reputable. That’s why we like the DIY spirit behind organizations like The Backcountry Hut Company. And their modular prefabricated homes are one of the best options for DIY homesteaders we have ever seen.

Though there’s a bit of a chicken-or-egg situation with the brand and product names, The Backcountry Hut is no less impressive. These IKEA-esque homes come flat packed in deliveries anywhere in North America, feature customizable interiors and cladding (the coating/cover on the outside of the structure), and come with step-by-step instructions. So, if you own land, want a well-designed and personalized home, but you don’t want to involve a whole garrison of by-the-hour workers, you might want to look into a Backcountry Hut.
