A young man built a camper to avoid paying the mortgage and housing costs.
Today, life in the UK is expensive and not all citizens can afford it. That’s why Chris Marsh, a 36-year-old Briton, solved the problem of high rents and huge utility bills in his own way. The latter has himself built a small ecological house on wheels. Maintaining a 16 square meter house is pretty cheap for Chris, and this house has everything a person needs for a comfortable life.
Indeed, before moving into his miraculous house, Chris Marsh worked for a construction company and rented a small house in Northumberland for £650 a month, with an extra £260 to pay bills and taxes.
When I stumbled upon these tiny houses on an American construction site, I decided to try to build one myself. I’ve lived there long enough and I’ll never move to an urban home again,” says Chris. He put his two-story house on a small plot that he had already bought for 110,000 pounds. It took Chris 11 weeks to build it. And now the man only pays £15 a month for his house. Mr. Chris uses rainwater, which enters his house through a special rainwater harvesting system.
In 2017, Chris founded Tiny Eсo Homes UK, which manufactures and sells eco homes in many countries around the world. Indeed, the demand for such houses is quite high and last year Chris Marsh’s company sold 30 of its tiny houses, costing £50,000 each.
These tiny houses are made of high quality wood and are guaranteed for life. According to Chris, such a house is resistant to all weathers and it is easy to tow it by car to the right place. Among my clients, there are all kinds of people. They are young families and elderly people. Sometimes they just want to buy a small house to spend vacations in the countryside. We create unique homes and take into account all the wishes of our customers,” says Chris Marsh.
