You haven’t mentioned utilities. Do you need a well and septic tank? How about electricity? I would just do it and move to a different spot on the nine acres. You would need a permit for the utilities so you should be fine while that is underway.

The rule is you have to clear the tanks every 17 days. Or have to have septic/water hookups. I think its cheaper to actually buy 3 lots than 3 trailers.

Yeah they can evict you from your own land apparently. California is such a pathetic state ruled by overlords who created this whole mess I'm in.

The way I see it for a work around. Going to bend some lines and be creative thinking.
First as you state, you are planning to build a home. Okay so it is in a couple of years. I don't think there is a "Time Line" to get it built. So get your building permit. That will allow you to have your utilizes installed. Water, Electrical and ether septic or sewer.. Go out and put up four stakes with flags, that's where your house is going to be built. Now you have your utilizes and then let them tell you can not live there waiting for your house to be built...

Yeah I doubt they would ever check unless a neighbor complained

And likely,,,, one would. Just to reduce the number of neighbors next year by one.

Why are you trying to do this in a place that doesn't want you there?
Go somewhere that welcomes people, not that wants to punish you for living.

Could you put up a pole barn to run utilities to, hide yourself and RV inside?


This is a great idea, done by many people. Install a septic system and a water tank. Maybe even solar and pull in electrical.

I'm just trying to see if its even feasible to do what I want. The problem is I'm going through a divorce and two households in SF Bay Area are not in the cards on our salaries, so I need to find out something long term for myself.

If I move far away then I'll never see my kids.

Could you have an inexpensive modular home (or maybe even a preowned mobile home) installed on the land? Or have a shed built with insulation, bathroom, etc and move into that for the time being? You could still save up for a nicer home to be built a couple of years down the road.

Yeah I’m thinking of a tiny home or something that would qualify as a dwelling.
