Is it a long term plan or temporary? We live on average and although we haven't done it, lots of people around us have, including mum and dad who did for about a year while building there house. There shed was BASIC and they were glad to move out. My neighbour has lived in her she'd off and on for 8 ish years (when not with her DH who works remote). Her shed is amazing in comparison, slate floor, insulation, aircon and fireplace.

If it was long term it would be great to have something like your neighbor's shed...again, did she have it all approved as a dwelling?

Biggest thing mum and dad found was heat. Cold a little but easier to rug up. In summer they were regularly getting temps above 45 inside in the summer. All there candles melted! It did cool down quickly when the sun went down

Following, as this is what we are planning on doing once we buy a property (100+ acres) in the bush.
Our plan is to get an American Barn and convert it into a 5 bed open plan home

We will most likely do this. The block we are looking at has a half-finished shed on it. The hubster would finish it off and then we would deck it out as a "shouse" (shed-house as my sister calls it, they are living in their shed now, while they decide whether they want to build a house and stay, or sell their block). I don't know what the rules are here, but we would be super unlucky to be caught where we are, no neighbours and well away from a main road.

Oh how cool to see a few people thinking of doing it too!
For us it's a way to get onto the block we want as the cost of a house on top of the block is too much.
I didn't think about the bin situation! Not really an option with pooey nappies 😂
I've emailed the council to see what our options are and will go from there.
Haha I have seen them referred to as as shouse ... I bet some of them are premium!!
100 acres ... Wow we would only be looking at 3 and therefore noticeable but I think a lot of people in the area do it
