As the summer started wrapping up, I started exploring options for where I might be able to call home on the weekends while my house was rented. Remember that gypsy living thing...yeah, it was real and as I pushed more into weekend rentals, I started looking at some options. I have 2 acres and felt this would be ideal to build a tiny house on but wouldn't you know it- local zoning laws prohibit any additional buildings built on property less than 5 acres. So I had to start thinking creatively and economically. How can I have a weekend retreat while complying within zoning laws and not breaking the bank. So, I started exploring self-contained tiny houses on axels but turned down the idea based on simple economics. People were asking outrageous prices for super small spaces. Granted they were ADORABLE but I needed practical and enough space for 2 adults, 4 dogs, 1 cat and a newly added guinea pig. So, I started researching RV living and decided that was probably my best bet. There were zoning laws about RV but they were within reason and I could easily be within compliance.
So, the journey began to look for an RV. What size do I want? Do I want slides? How much do I want to renovate or update? How old is too old? What shape seems to work best? Will it last? Where will I put it? Hmmmm....lots of questions. Stay tuned for the answers.
