So many people with MCS, CIRS and TILT are looking for safe housing. Housing that is free from mold and chemicals. Some people 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?
