some people in warmer climates can retrofit old vans/pull trailers/motorhomes into some pretty amazing houses


have seen a camper strapped to a pirus for makeshift motorhome too, ford escape hybrid are pretty roomy too 16.5 feet long enough to sleep 2 just make sure its been cleaned good/vented extra good the battery’s can make a smell and get on things. far as i know chassis are fully customizable aslong as safty system was not compromised would be much like having a sleeper in big truck so an external strapon storage unit would not need registration try to use chain instead of strap or put some rags between strap to prevent rubbing/ripping.

trailers these days 76′ trailer can be purchased for under 20,000 dollars for a peaked roof, 10k for septic system, 10k to subdivide land and get an entrance made to your lot, 8k for power pole and hookup.

new windows double pain are essential in canada otherwise you’ll be heating way more than you need. pretty easy to frame in any size window with 2×4’s and drywall overtop of it.

moving the used trailer will typically cost 3-5k if its within hour drive.

things to check are black mold around window areas, soft spots around toilette, intact bellybag, and hitch to move it with usually tucked under the front.

i’ve herd good things about the sunmar toilette if you don’t want to get a septic tank and just run grey water out the back. also have herd of people making septic systems from things like 45 gal drums tied together. you can pour your own and get it inspected or sometimes buying used one + bung can be a cheeper option

use one of these and pressure washer for unplugging septic systems

non moving air is the best insulation you can get for building materials.

hemp plastic with air cavities like coffee crisp could replace polystyrene in some applications.

aerogel still expensive but is space quality stuff.


insulated siding.


tin roof is probably best and sounds good in the rain, i’ve seen people just screw right into the old shingles to seal the holes, lapping can be used aswell if you want to put a gap between the shingles and roof for better moisture dissipation.


rocket stoves

solar hotair / hotwater

campers addon/integration can be a great way to have extra room + facility’s needed. be sure to make everything airtight. fireproof cotten or straw + adobe walls might have enough insulation. if you put these on skids as living dwellings it would be in the mobile home tax / insurance range.
