Some other wagons have been restored, but all of them have one thing in common: an outdoors area for enjoying nature while chatting over a cup of bio-coffee.

Wagendorf Lohmühle’s recycled and hand-made mobile shelters use solar panels to transform the sun’s energy into free electricity. Some wagons, like this geometrical wooden one, were built on-site from a wide variety of found materials. Some other wagons have been restored, but all of them have one thing in common: an outdoors area for enjoying nature while chatting over a cup of bio-coffee.

These cute wagons, caravans, and self-made experimental living shelters aim to promote cultural and artistic self-initiated projects all-year-round. Cats, dogs, rabbits, birds and a couple of tortoises with their own home share their lives with kids and adults seeking a more natural way of living.

    I saw this octagonal-trailer when the owner was building it few years ago. I took some photos to, It’s very interesting! living this way in Finland is unfortunately not possible due to strict laws. Perhaps I have to move to Germany if I “boondock” in Finland. I don’t like the idea of survivalism, but I like self sufficiensy and if economy goes more bad every year, we will see large numbers of “urban nomads” trying to adapt to economic crisis by living in trailers for free.

    Not a bad idea provided you have sufficient money to take care of your basic needs ,otherwise for your survival you have to work and be close to your place of work specially in case you are staying in a crowded place like Bombay (India).
    But it can be good idea for nature lovers like me to spend a few days holidays in a care free wonderfull natural envoirment.
