This is trend is growing increasingly popular in Germany. Take Nicolette Stewart, for example, who, in 2005 moved to Germany after quitting her office job. There she moved into a “wagenplatz” (trailer park) where she lived out of an old caravan.
She replaced the rotten boards, cleaned it up, installed some insulation and appliances, and voila, it became home. This sounds like a dream to many. What’s even more incredible is that anyone can do it. If you have an appetite for the adventure of course.
The Pallet Home
Pallets just lie around unused all over the place. So some people have taken the liberty of actually repurposing them, and what better way to do that to actually build yourself a nature house from scratch. It costs next to nothing.
If you have a piece of land and a little money, a simple pallet house is ideal. It might not be the most permanent situation but if you're saving up for something bigger then this might be perfect.
Live In An Outbuilding
For less than $10,000 you can have a beautiful little outbuilding or cabin in the woods. The prefabricated materials are easy to assemble and available even on roadside highways.
Find your perfect little secluded spot for your home and reside in peace.
Living in a Truck
Just like living in a wagon, bus, van, or RV, a truck is also a perfect option for living on the road super comfortably. A truck can accommodate as much as a small apartment can so you can cruise in total luxury.
They're chunky things to drive, so keep that in mind. It's the kind of thing you park and chill in for a few weeks, even months.
Living in a Storage Unit
It's certainly no permanent solution to living, but if you find yourself in a temporary housing crisis, this might be the perfect option. Sure, you might encounter some legal issues and be subject to eviction and complaints but if you get lucky and can stick it out, this is a super cheap option for decent housing.
You can save money on the side and eventually move out to a bigger and better place. Who knows, maybe you'll get comfortable and stay a little longer.
