Living in camper vans, living in converted shipping containers, living in boats, living in tiny homes/cabins are all a realisation that you do not have to be a slave to the system that 'others' have created to take your money from you.
Buying houses to make a profit from a so called investment is sheer madness of the highest order. It is something that is only about 40 years old.
You become a total slave of the system and the finance industry. You actually become a slave to a bank.
You borrow money from the bank that it doesnt even have. You pay interest on that money which means that you have to give 25 years? of your life to do so. At the same time so much other time of your life is just working to pay the insurance on it.
Then at the end of that time you may sell it and you may make a profit until you buy your next home because you have to live somewhere. This means that your profit has simply disappeared.
I see nowt wrong with those log cabins. They are cheap, easily expandable, warm, and can be repaired or maintained with a few euro, a hammer and nail and just two brain cells.
You may not end up with thousands of profit at the end that you hand over to your Care Home. But you will have been able to do what you wanted to do with your life.
You can live where you like. You do not have to live by the city and pay more for your home. If there is a recession you wont be worrying about losing your home or losing more than what you paid for it.
Not all of the world values concrete blocks like they do in Ireland for example. This is mainly an older generation thing. More and more younger people see an alternative way.
