Build-A-Camper
A how-to website on building/refurbishing your own travel camper. Lots of photos and great information and links that take you through the process step by step. Does not include information about materials for someone with chemical/mold/electrical sensitivities but still a great resource and guide for anyone planning on doing this themselves.

Leslie’s Safe House Project page 2
Inspired by tiny Tumbleweed Houses, Leslie is building her own non-toxic tiny house on wheels. Her vision: “to buy land in one or more places, and have communities of MCS people living there in these little movable homes.” If this interests you, let her know via her blog. If there is enough demand, she will put together a business plan for producing these tiny homes for others.
