That's plenty enough to get you started, Soup. You don't have to do everything at once. You can build it slowly if you like. You'll find Clay and Rock and an iron ore or two on yoru property when you buy it. So you don't even have to stock pile that and the Clay and Rock are indeed infinite. The things you need to buy are hay and glass and keep as many iron ingots as you can because you need those to turn into nails, hinges and locks. You'll need corrondum for locks as well. But yeah you could easily go get your land and start.
Oh yeah you'll need some lumber. You'll have some already on your property but you'll have to buy the rest. It's 200 gold for 20. You'll need about a hundred or so lumber *not really sure how accurate that number is btw* but that's about it.
Striker, might be due to you wearing heavy armor? If not here's what I did. I sneak up to them in crouch mode until the pick pocket icon comes up then I hit the strike button. It works for me.
If you have boots that muffle you it helps as well. Or enchanted armor with fortify sneak.
