    "...those garages..." A loony lady friend of mine has been using one for camping with a herd of kids for eons. Suspect one of 'em would be good for your purpose. Not stupid expensive either. Moves in a box the length of the poles though.

    I did look at some of those garages but they seemed like they would not last long.
    Maybe something like Atuk’s Kanguk tent? Single centre pole, five stakes and five guy lines (to stakes or available trees) and you’re in business. Strange five sided shape, but pre plumbed for a wood stove next to the centre pole. Light enough to be considered portable while still made from durable canvass. There’s a version with nylon side walls for even less weight too. He’s got a few other single pole and T-pole designs worth considering too....

    After much stewing and studying, I think the simplest thing is going to be a 14 x 16 with a 5 foot porch and woodstove. Probably order it in the New Year, pics when it shows up.
