Karl Wohnwagon

Traismauer, Lower Austria, Austria

Anyone who imagines a colorful circus-decorated dwelling when living in a wagon or a shepherd's wagon in which you can't stand it without thick, self-knitted sweaters made from your own coarsely spun wool is no longer completely up to date.

Because since 2013, near Vienna in Austria an ecologically and biologically state-of-the-art form of small self-sufficient houses - the so-called caravans built and delivered to the world. So far, there are 11 that are now, for example, on Lake Tegernsee or in Tyrol and enable their owners to live almost or completely independently.

If you want to try out how the dream of a self-sufficient life, regardless of all connections to the usual supply networks, can become a completely self-determined way of dealing with your own resources, you can rent a few days in Karl. The caravan is in Austria, in the middle of nature, behind a winegrower's house. But in 10 min. There is a nice grocer within walking distance, as well as delicious inns such as the "Landgasthaus Huber" or "da Josef". It is also a good place to dine there.

ArchitectureThe caravan is built free from harmful oils and plastics with natural woods that age beautifully and are durable. It is insulated with sheep's wool. In some cases, clay plaster and natural stone are also processed. All the necessary modern comfort in the smallest space.

At Wohnwagon GmbH there is a flexible flextime and the company is recognized as a "family-friendly company". In workshops that are offered on different topics, there is always the possibility to pay a reduced social price instead of the full course fee. And caravans are part of the INDI - Individualized Work Training program. Here, assisted internships help people to get back into the job market.

EnvironmentA caravan is an environmental policy statement. Because living self-sufficiently means living sustainably. Electricity generation works 100% from the sun and wind. Strong batteries built in Germany are installed under the car for storage. You can keep an eye on your own energy generation and consumption via the Independent Box and thus become aware of your personal consumption. In the organic toilet, solid and liquid are separated directly and processed into compost. Heating and hot water also work with the sun and with wood. And the water used for showering and washing is later clarified and treated on the wagon's own sump roof.
