So many people with chemical sensitivities and conditions like CIRS and TILT are looking for safe housing. Housing that is free from mold, cigarette smoke and chemicals is hard to come by these days.
Many families have opted for tiny homes or converted trailers and they live isolated from buildings and contaminated spaces.
So what can you do if you are chemically sensitive and you need to find safe materials to build or fix your home? How can you build a safe tiny home and what materials should you use?
Where can you stay when you have to travel for vacation or need a place to stay while relocating to a new city?
