Living Alternatives – Other Options Part Two…


3. A Van

A van can be converted into a small living space.You will have the benefit of moveability, changing scenery, being your own boss and traveling whenever you wish.

The cost of conversion can be high and technically challenging for anyone with no mechanical expertise. However, there are ready-made options available.

As you can see from this link it can be done. http://tinyhousetalk.com/couple-two-dogs-traveling-stealth-tiny-house/

4. A Yurt

A traditional yurt is a round, semi-permanent tent lived in by Mongolians and fashioned from natural skins. Modern day yurts do not adhere to these methods although the shape and concept are the same but utilize hi-tech materials for to accommodate temperature variations and conditions and are normally stationary.

They are sturdy buildings and due to the circular shape retain heat well and with a steeper pitch on the conical roof can repel downpours of rain well. Modern yurts are not cheap to purchase so this option is one to consider. You also need to ensure you have a permanent site on, which to live unless you opt for a traditional yurt and dismantle and reassemble regularly.

5. A Double Decker Bus

A double decker bus can be converted into a moveable or fixed home, depending on your choice. It is surprisingly spacious once the seats are taken out.

You will need mechanical, electrical and plumbing expertise (or knowledgeable friends) to make this option possible. The conversion cost is quite high so planning your layout is paramount prior to starting the build. Also, if you are traveling the cost of gas can be high so factor that into your budget.

Which one of these options would you prefer?
