This adaptability results in a reduction of environmental impact —especially since there is no need for drilling or earthwork— and provides significant self-sufficiency to the house.

The following four projects benefit from the flexibility, functionality, and mobility provided by the use of wheels instead of foundations in small scale houses. Check them out:
