My only suggestion would be to build the house in the summer!
But seriously, no camper is made for those temperatures. Rent an apartment until your house is done.

I would hate to have your propane bill . if you are truly going to do it you better contact your local propane company and have them set a 100 lb bottle otherwise you WILL go through almost 2 tanks a week . I live in my unit one year about this time .
it was 30 degrees f at night and 40's and 50's during the day . I had the thermostat set at 65 at night and 50 during the day and I used 1 thirty pounder in 5 days .

just an fyi

How did the winter go? I'm getting ready to renovate a house up here in North Dakota. My wife two kids and myself are going to brave it in a new wildwood until we get the house livable. Any tips to not freezing? Renting a place here just is not an option with this oil boom.
