I like Herrington Harbor for DIY, haul-out, and storage...

I would recommend the Herrington Harbor - North marina for your purposes.

It is a large yard, upper-mid-Bay, on the Western shore of the Chesapeake, about 15-20 miles south of Annapolis. It is within striking distance of two international airports (Baltimore-Washington International, and Washington-Dulles International).

They allow DIY work there. Also, they have (on-site) numerous marine services for rigging, structural, sail work, etc.

And there is West Marine chandlery at the marina.

Good luck to you!
But I do not think they will let you live aboard on the hard. They do not allow cords to be plugged in at night. Please check - I may be all wrong.
