low-impact alternative?

i am dreaming of accomodation outside the city (zurich);

something humble, small, and lower rent...
maybe even part-time.

in england i have lived in a barn, a shed, a cabin, a wagon etc

am i crazy? are there projects, parks, communities or private-land where i could find or create such a thing?

i dont know where to start...

Re: low-impact alternative?

Some large camping sites allow all year round living in mobile homes. Otherwise everything here is modernised every 10 to 15 years. You must go to France for what you are seeking.

Do you really want to live in a shed with the temperatures we've got right now?

Low rent accommodation can be found with a little bit of luck but I don't know about barns or cabins or such. We live in Winterthur and there are some houses with no central heating, maybe that could be a start?
