I know people who built a wooden house and got fined 64,000E but seemingly it was for the concrete base, it all depends on the land, ie rustic/urban, you would be best off going to your local townhall and asking, wherabouts are you looking to buy?

I live in Andalucia and I have a bit of land that came with my cave house. My brother has just purchased a 30' mobile home which he intends to site on the top of our land. We did go to the town hall and ask if this was ok to do and they told us that it was a mobile home so would not be considered a permanant structure so that was permissable.

Considerations have to be water, electicity and toilet facilities.

We will run water and electricity to him from our house and he is digging a cesspit/soak away for his toilet facilities and his grey water (showers, dishwater etc) will irrigate the land.

Raquel...Wilmaaaa! Are you in? Thanks for the input we are thinking Andalucia , So...guess its down to the townhall, on a case by case? Raquel you say ...the concrete base,was the problem,so,...what would have been O.K? flagstones,raked gravel,Or?...Wilma good luck with the mobile on the roof!...not so much lateral, as vertical thinking!onwards and upwards!

Hiya raked gravel or flagstones would be fine as long as you could show that they can be removed.

Plenty of room on the roof mate that is the benefit of being at the top of the mountain. In my situation I can dig into the mountain both back and down....lol You need a new head on with a different way of thinking when you live in a cave house Very Happy
