Are you one of these people who was born 200 years too late, except for when you want to watch TV or use the computer? Have I ever got a place for you.
Clearwater Mountain is the only location we’ve ever started that restricts what you can build, but even there you still have a lot of leeway. The rules say homes must be built of whole logs (no, not faux-log siding) and/or native stone. This can mean one of those wildly-expensive kit homes you see advertised, or (more what we intended) middle-class homes made of very affordable materials: logs (the kind you find growing all over the Ozarks) and stone (the kind you find laying all over the ground). And yes, you can pick up all the rocks you like, but you can’t cut timber off the property to build with.
The goal being that the Clearwater Mountain area remains natural in appearance, but you don’t have to be fantastically wealthy to live there.
Parcel N is one of the more attractive properties there, even though there is very limited level ground, it being comprised of a narrow hollow between two steep hillsides. They say no place is tornado-proof, but this one must come pretty close. Still, it’s located only about half a mile from a paved road and the access road is maintained by Reynolds County. If you thought having extreme privacy meant having to maintain a long private road, you really ought to investigate this location.
So, when you’re back there contemplating your navel, or whatever you especially like to do when you’re enjoying your solitude, you’ll find it hard to believe you’re so close to the fun times at the Webb Creek Marina and Webb Creek Park facilities, as well as several zillion fish. You’ll find that Reynolds County has lots of National Forest, State Forest, and National Park land, so hunting, fishing, and all sorts of backwoods amusement awaits.
Ellington, Missouri, one of the least expensive places to live in the United States, is only 12 miles away.

Explaination: We want to encourage you to build your own home using local materials from the Missouri forest. Log home kits are permitted, but not purchased, imported stone. Hiring a contractor is permitted, but the emphasis here is on the owner-builder and sensible, affrodable housing. Wood panels that look like logs are not acceptable, and you can't cut the timber off of the property to build the home. However, you can use all the rock from the property that you want.
Here's the first home at Clearwater Mountain. Log/stone homes are practical and especially economical if you buy native materials and build your own such as these folks did, The Ozarks is covered with both logs and stones, and Reynolds County isn't hindered by lots of unnecessary building regulations.
