We’re looking at doing a complete knock down/rebuild. We live rurally so we have a bit of a dilemma on where to live whilst it’s being done. Could probably be as long as 12 months in total. My family own a house in a nearby town that is currently tenanted. But it would mean we’d be relaocating to town, which I’m not so keen on. As this is our home/business etc. or would it be silly to suggest we rent or buy a motor home. And in between use it as an option to travel a bit.  We have a shed next to the house, I’m not sure if that’d be too costly to convert that into basic living quarters for that time or not?
Do you think the motor home idea could be feasible? They are quite pricey though?

Don't think it's silly - but how much would it cost to add a bathroom, kitchenette & aircon to the shed?

Motohomes can be expensive & then you will still need a sewer system of some description to empty the waste into.

I know a lot of people who’ve used a carava for this purpose and survived fine. Is there a reason for a motor home and not a caravan as it would be a far cheaper option?

I’d have to contact a builder and see what a basic shed conversion would cost. Yes I see that a caravan would be a lot cheaper than a motor home. We are a family of 6 though, with almost two teenagers. So would need to be quite a large caravan.
