So, you’ve found your plot or renovation project, you’ve sold your existing property to free up funds, and your builder is ready to start. Unless you’re planning to test family bonds by moving in with the in-laws, or have the money available to rent locally, one accommodation solution is to purchase a caravan (typically a static caravan) and live on site.

But, given that this is yet another expense, what do you get for your money, and what is it really like living on a building site?
