This is completely awesome but like some have already mentioned, i have a few questions.
-although i think people should be able to build whatever they want.... how is she dealing with local codes like construction safety, plumbing and
electricity codes, tax assessment etc.? now i get being in wheels may change those issues but then there's other problems.next thing you'll here is"
home builder owes state $50,000 in taxes!" i remember a story about a guy who was using waste veg oil in his car and since he was promoting it on his
car with stickers, some official ahole decided he was skirting fuel taxes so they tried to make him pay them separately. i could imagine her getting
hit with some absurd property tax.
-trailer vehicle safety laws, registration?
- that house looks REALLY tall. like said before, power lines. also, low bridges. that would limit travel severely not to mention stability issues.
- it looks REALLY heavy. has she accounted for the trailers capacity to hold the weight? everything is made of nice hard woods and it barely looks
like she used plywood which is much lighter.
-legality of where to park. maybe national parks with camping but do they have limits on how long you can stay? that would mean a pretty nomadic
lifestyle which may bring up money issues later on, like gas, food, propane if she wanted to cook. you can park on a friends private land, that is as
long as there isnt some city ordinance against trailers and vehicles parked in your yard.
so, i love the ingenuity, use of recycled parts, the quaintness and simplicity, and the fact you can custom tailor to suit your needs , not to mention
the price but we all know how the "system" makes it really hard for these things to be viable.
