My husband and I have begun to look into creating/purchasing our own home. We have been exploring tiny houses, yurts and renovating an RV style trailer (if we can find one that does not off gas). The idea of a moveable home is attractive to us because we are not sure where we want to settle. We would like to invest in something that we can take with us if we decide to move to BC or another part of Ontario (we currently live in SE Ontario). We are thrifty, resourceful, health conscious, foragers, gardeners, nature lovers and money conscious. What are your thoughts on a Yurts? Or what would be the best option for our type of lifestyle/interests?
