Living out of a storage locker for 2 months, in style!



I had just came back from hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and found myself homeless. I had given up my apartment to go hike and now that I was back I wanted to turn my car into a livable space. I eventually did that (You can see it here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLA2hTuXLig) but found I still needed access to lots of stuff from my storage unit which was 6x4x10 and everything was just jammed in there. I figured there had to be a better way. I scoped out a 10x10x6 unit and moved all my stuff inside. Still super small, I managed to build shelves and organize it in a way where everything is accessible. But why stop there! I decided to build shelves and a water system and setup my actual apartment so I could live there. I was moving in! I ended up living in the unit for around 2 months. I only spent around $100 making the space as efficient as I did, mostly because I already owned so much hardware. The cost of rent on my unit was $205 a month (which included insurance). A bargain, considering an apartment in the area was $1000+ a month. I made this video showcasing my work/unit.

    So you’re really trying to tell me that nobody noticed the damn antenna or Do you long ass extension cord come on this has to be fake minus the actual stuff in there. The only way that this makes sense to me is if he owns the place or knows the people there

    Somebody at UHaul is going to be really mad. I'm going to venture a guess that his parents are the onsite managers of this place. He obviously spent a shit ton of time on this. He should have spent that working so he could live without the fear of anyone finding him. Plus all that power consumption from a single cord? Btw, nobody notices it leading directly into the top of a unit?
