Of course there's always a catch.

Once a lot is purchased, owners have 90 days to begin construction, and 12 months to complete it. As soon as the town receives the occupancy permit, they will refund $990 of the original down payment.“You don’t have to live here full time, but you do need to put up a permanent structure,” said Chalmers.
