Help I want to do time lapse photography

Help I want to do time lapse photography while rebuilding my cabin over the next year.

I don't have a clue were to start
couple problems
no power available
no internet connection

I haven't used one but the game cameras don't have the field of view I think I would need.

If you just want documentary photos, a marker, tripod and plumb bob will enable you to put camera in same spot for each photo.

Real TL photography is not cheap or easy, you need 24/7 power, a sophisticated camera or a controller, a weather cover, security, etc.

I have done some time lapse with Go-Pro cameras, but I was compressing a couple of hours of activity in a couple of minutes, not compressing weeks into minutes. It took considerable time with processing software to deal with thousands of still frames to make a movie. I don't know how long you could get batteries to last in one of those cameras.

I later used a Pentax K-30 DSLR and it worked much better, it can directly create a time lapse movie, but it would probably have shorter battery life and not be as suitable to leave unattended outside as a Go Pro.

Years ago I did time lapse of ice breakup during the summer on the pack ice north of Alaska, for that I modified an 8mm movie camera and made a weatherproof housing for it and had a large external battery (ancient history, not really useful information for the 21st century ).

I won't be there the whole time if I can afford contractors to put foundation and the shell up.
But I want to document it.
I had tons of pictures of the original cabin when i built it but when it burnt down they went with it.
