Can anyone think of a good, cost effective, alternative solution to expensive housing?
Because of excessive housing prices in the UK I met someone recently, who unbelievably lived in a wendy house for a period of time. Can anyone think of any other good housing options for those on a tiny budget? Thank you.
I wrote a hub about this already it's called the Pros and Cons of the Whimsical Cob Cottage...check it out.
For building or leasing? Building, straw bale houses. I hear they're not as common in the UK as they are in my part of the US because of precipitation and humidity differences, but with a bit of extra weather-proofing they can be made to withstand humidity:

There is a guy called Vijay Govindarajan, a business guru who has set himself the challenge this year of developing a house that can be built for $300. I think it is meant for developing countries but you should check it out.
Hi, you might find the following site interesting as it is in the UK. - http://www.amazonails.org.uk/. This site shows the lay person how to build using straw bales - ancient methods with new twists and a very inexpensive way to build a house if you own a site.
Also you might like to check out this site for further ideas as the most inexpensive material is used here - clay -http://www.greenhomebuilding.com/cob.htm. This is an American site but very good ideas and will give you great inspiration here.
This next site is in the UK and claims that a man built a house for £500!! Check it out anyway and see how it goes for you.http://www.sustainablebuild.co.uk/CobBuilding.html.
Hope this has given you some new ideas. Thanks for the question.
That's clearly dependent on location. Salt Lake City, Utah has one of the lowest costs of living in the United States. A 1600 sq. ft house with three bedrooms and 2 baths can cost as little as $140,000. The same house in the NY-NJ Metroplex can be double the price or more.
