The thing is that money is always somewhat of a concern as well, so that's one more thing to worry about. Do you build a house? A rustic cabin? Live in a travel trailer? Have you ever considered a wall tent?
Not a terrible option, in my opinion. The biggest concern I would have would revolve around the viability of the structure in bad weather, such as heavy snows, but I'm sure that the expense would still be lower than many other options even after adding in the additional cost of reinforcing the framework. Also, it would offer no ballistic protection. I'm not sure I would trust the idea of living in something like this as a permanent option, but it could even be used simply as temporary shelter while you build a cabin or something more permanent, and it would allow you to live at your retreat property during the construction.
Definitely worth thinking about.
