I'd find a cool part of the country to do it in.

I hear ya, my brother just retired to a house he renovated in Maine on the NH border. It's on a small lake and the builder who build all the houses on the lake built them set back from the water and the water is in the back yards of all the houses except the one he built for himself that is on the water and the front faces it.That's the one my bro bought. The other side of the lake is NH.

Beautiful area but trying to make a life up here is impossible for a 22 year old such as myself. I’m gonna be converting my 99 gmc Corbeil and send it west

We did it, but we had a carport we could park in and store our stuff. A storage unit facility that will let you work on it would be a great help. Typically you can find one for first month free or a $1 type thing. It saves so much time having things set up to work already and being able to stop in the middle of a project and not having to pack everything back into the bus.
