For people looking to enjoy both the tranquility and excitement of the great outdoors, the idea of building a cabin in a beautiful wilderness area makes sense. That is until you compound all of the usual complications of building a home with the special issues associated with building in remote areas. Trailside Homes, a Cle Elum real estate company servicing the Central Cascade region of Washington State, takes the headache out of owning a mountainside cabin retreat.
Many details go into building a home no matter where it is built. Utilities, roads and services are but a few details that can cause delays, or even force serious compromises in design.
Trailside Homes offers parcels of land, as well as cabin packages, specifically suited to the surroundings. With many tweaks and options available, customization still remains a large part of customer satisfaction. The only choices not left to the prospective homeowner are how to deal with complicated building issues.
There are other reasons to select a gated mountain community over going it alone. Here is a list of problems and services that can really make the difference - saving time, money and more than a few headaches:
Building in remote rural areas has special problems that result from living somewhat “off-the- grid”. One such issue is negotiating water rights. To be able to use water sources located in wilderness areas can be tricky, especially with the larger goal of remaining environmentally responsible in mind. Gated retreats can sort this out for prospective buyers long before building begins.
Knowing the Land
The biggest advantage with gated mountain communities is having a knowledgeable and devoted
resource that knows everything about the location. This will ensure that a cabin’s placement is ideal for
scenic views, sunlight and weather concerns. This takes an unparalleled attention to detail that only arises from being intimately connected to the area.
Private Shared Land
Mountainside gated communities offer tremendous access for outdoor enthusiasts. Often, in addition to the parcel of land bought, some shared private land is owned and maintained by the community. This allows people eager to utilize trails to be able to leave right from their cabin, without having to travel to a trailhead.
Another great advantage to choosing a cabin in a mountainside gated community is in knowing that the utmost care has been taken to build and design your cabin with the natural surroundings in mind. Land developers involved in communities like these are first and foremost selling access to natural beauty. By thinking in terms of the entire region, more care can be taken in implementing design strategies that do not detract from the scenic setting.
Let’s face it, having a cabin means being closer to nature, but that doesn’t mean forgoing amenities all together. Many gated communities have community centers or lodges that house pools, hot tubs and fire pits for the entire community. Roughing it is one thing, but why go overboard?
