In this podcast segment we hear from Raphael Jerónimo, from Ecositana, who is a professional builder of wooden houses in Portugal.  Here, he shares his knowledge on building, permits and the often controversial topic of building Tiny Homes in Portugal, looking at temporary homes, yurts, mobile homes and wheels too! The audio is from part ONE in a blog and YouTube series made especially for Pure Portugal.
