How difficult would it be to build a one room plus bathroom house?

How difficult would it be to build a one room plus bathroom house?
The actual process of construction, I can get the ingredients.

I'm thinking of buying a gardening lot and building a house that can pass for a large patio/shed when it comes to inspections.

Hardest part would be laying cables and the plumbing right? I would also need either a plate furnace or a fireplace, either way I need a chimney that doesn't let heat out.

I would also need a washing machine and a fridge, fridge is easy but idk how to get the water for the washing machine.

Oven would be the antique wood kind I think.

Doable? I have no idea how to do the toilet besides dig a massive hole, reinforce from the sides and hope it drains into the soil faster than it fills up

    Hardest part would be trying to pass it off as a shed. A lot of places don't allow you to build secondary structures before the primary home. Maybe you should consider renovating a camper?

    Also I'm proud of you for switching boards anon

      Worst case scenario I glue planks to the outside wall. If that's the hard part then please tell me how to do the easy part of hooking up electricity and water to a washing machine and also how to build a chimney that doesn't let heat out.

        you've never had a wood stove have you?

        you would be far better off buying an established cabin that needs work and going from there. you can concentrate on your aesthetic choices that way and be as hipster as frick. if you try to pass a shed with plumbing off as a shed you're going to get curbstomped by zoning and permitting and fines.

        and established doesn't have to mean existing, we sold a nice rural property with a septic and well in place. the trailer had burned down and 30 years had passed, but none of that mattered- the electrical grid was just waiting and the new buyers could easily put a house there. ymmv depending on where you live, but there are much better options than a garden plot out there.

        Don't underestimate the bullshit of local government and nosy neighbors. The rest of it can be learned by picking up a book, doing a Google search, or actually working in the field. Hell you can volunteer at habit for humanity and learn a ton there. Yeah you're going to frick up, but you can learn enough to not frick it up so bad that you cannot fix it. You're not building a structure so big that a frick up now will cause you to have major headaches months later.

        Also as for the toilet, you could try a compostable. I'm assuming you can't put a septic tank in a gardening plot so maybe shut in a bucket and have a compost pile to dump it in. Sawdust does wonders for the smell

      If this is a thing, then a shed would be the primary structure.

        Why would you doubt this?
        A lot of European cities sell shitty land that gets flooded all the time or is on a hill too steep to build anything tall on as gardening lots

          Because this isn't a thing where I live. Community gardens exist everywhere, but they're zoned commercial.

    Maybe drop an actual shed on the lot and feed it the utilities you need. Then try to fly under the radar.

    Otherwise you pull permit and talk to a builder about any steps you can tackle to improve the full project costs.

        >working chimey

        buy a wood burning stove, it will have a hole at the back for smoke, you attach a cast iron pipe that runs from the inside to outside the building, and use fire-resistant material where the pipe leads to the outside walls.

        >running water

        you attach a water source like a well, or local water supply, to an electric pump, the pump sends water to a large tank to store it, the tank goes to taps, like the water pressure in a house

        >electricity
        same concept, you attack cables to the national grid OR your own generator/solar/wind whatever that go to a battery bank which connect to your lights, electricals

        its all self explanatory dude, you just need to understand how things actually work

    Heating, plumbing and electricity is the most difficult because you have to learn how circuits and pressure/flow work, mistakes are also very dangerous with water damage, fires etc

    Actually building a floor, walls and a roof you could get away with absolutely winging it just to make shelter and then building it properly later.

    But yeah, you'll need to put in some effort to learn plumbing and electrics

      better yet put up an actual gardening shed with a trapdoor leading to the bunker. An outhouse might attract random people who want to piss/shit or junkies trying to shoot up.

    Impossible unless you do it in bumfrick nowhere. Boomers aren’t going to approve it in most residential areas since it’s going to drag down their property values. They aren’t going to let you build your cuckbox next to their 5000 sqft McMasion
