When new visitors see our mobile houses they sometimes tell us they could never live inside such a small space. We explain to them that our houses are only a small fragment of the living space we use. We see our land as the living room, kitchen, market and bathroom. Our mobile houses are our personal spaces where we can retreat, sleep, but also work or eat if we want to. Of course this outside life is easy when the temperatures are higher. In winter it would be necessary to have a bigger, communal space where we can share food, warmth and company. Because of the temporary nature of this first project phase (April-September), we didn’t yet design such a communal space onto our Nomad City settlements. If this project were to continue in the future, such a space will be added. Another reason our personal homes are so small is because we noticed it was a lot easier to convince landowners to install these small types of movable houses on their land compared to the difficulties most people encounter when trying to find a space to install their standard sized tiny house. There are a lot of people eager to start living in a smaller, more sustainable way, but the laws and regulations on housing are hopelessly outdated, making it very difficult to begin. Paradoxically, this way of life is actually very simple compared to the complexity of our modern day households. In just a month we were able to design a multitude of cost efficient and ecological household structures necessary for our everyday life, in two spaces at the same time! By living in our small houses, which we move from time to time, we noticed we were able to get around certain laws, which also made us aware of the privilege we currently experience to be able to live this way. Because of this we feel even more obliged to speak up and share our thoughts to open up a dialogue about the laws and regulations regarding housing. We would prefer to live in a slightly larger construction but currently, our small homes feel like the only option to live this minimalistic and sustainable life, while also inspiring as many people as possible. We know many communities who are doing similar projects, but often they are hidden in the periferie of a city, or isolated in the woods. It is a shame that their beautiful ideas and projects can’t inspire a city, because laws and regulations are pushing them to the edge of society. By building houses on horse carriages we are able to do this project in the heart of a city, so that we can share with society the same values as those who are hidden from it. We are confident of the positive impact this way of life can have on ourselves as well as our natural environment. We hope our presence can help to inspire inhabitants and convince city municipalities to start thinking about new laws and regulations allowing people to start living in a more healthy and sustainable way.
