    Note that the second link above is to a container house that is off the grid for utilities, and lacks a toilet (you have to use an outhouse). It is not currently used as a home either, so is only partially furnished. It also appears to lack insulation on the roof...a real problem in a cold or snowy climate.

    You might find it easier to get permits for a double-wide mobile home or for pre-fab (manufactured) housing. A number of my clients have had these custom made to be fully accessible.

    These might be a better fit for Canada (Japan gets snow too):

    This is a great Thread. I love the small, but efficient homes, and the 'green' use of still-useful materials. Plus, any way that a person can possibly retain, or obtain, independence should be explored.
