could I suggest a 'yurt'? http://www.yurts.com/

Or some other source. Round buildings are more efficient for construction and heating. Just you and your man should be very comfortable in one. I've seen other round homes that advertise (and I think, truly) being able to be built by 'amateurs' with a few basic skills. They are fascinating to be in and, per the owners I've talked to, fun to live in. In other words, a log cabin is one neat thing to consider, but there are others.

Naturally, that leaves a lot of questions to be addressed -- water, power, sewer, heat source, use of wind or solar power, possibly water power...and much much more. All the discussion here about using experts to fully lay out for you what you are looking to do is excellent advice.
