Reminds me of the little house on the Prairie. Cool.
Good for one person but a family?
Gotta build a few and connect them. One for each member. 5 members x 3500 = 17,500.
For a home, not bad!
I've been posting that a few times. Build the biggest home on wheels you can pull, and then you have a choice, you could for many, have two equal
lenghts, a smaller one, and create a U with a greenhouse in the middle to the back, OR cluster a few close together, and have half a one butted up at
I've been thinking this way because if we do a get chance for land, portable homes, are legal, you can have friends and family. And its far more
One piece of land, say 80 000-120 000 if you were willing to move. One house, 300 000 to build brand new.. My grandmothers was close to that to
build and it was small, she had to take out the loft and redesign it after she subdivided.
You could have a large yurt or cob home,slowly built as a commercial kitchen, large laundry and overflow for guests, and nestle lots of smaller place.
She built hers with recycled wood. Other alternatives are: take an old trailer, and extend the frame and use alternative building materials. Cob,
Hemp-Lime, Paper Crete or Paper Mache (mixture sand, clay or mineral, long fibred like hemp and recycle paper), temporarily could use one thing
interior and waterproof arctic tenting fabric on the outside.
Tin can roof shingles. If its really rainy. Though I've seen them distressed and made more like Mexican tiles.
Tons of ideas.
Aquaponics, and workshops for wood working, electronics, building generators, all sorts of businesses.
I really wish people would get together in their local towns and form coucils and watchdog their local politiicans, and ensure Land Can Be Set Aside
for homeless and those in need.
Eco farms for troubled teens, for those in the ministry.
But I really don't understand those with a big house in the city, and family/friends, why they don't sell it and set up something like this, and
take back the night.
If I had a property that would sell for 700 000, I'd buy 2 pieces of land and look for others in auction and set them up for family and friends and
those in need and start local needed businesses, food, teach youths many skills. Create abundance and flow it out to others.
