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

133411 ratings | 8494366 views
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.

Lmao “stay tuned for a video on my actual apartment I’m moving into, I’ll show you what I’m going to do” Unfortunately I think everyone is going to skip that one, we have all seen our own episode!

Not in New York... Hey! Don't you know that having paper towels in top of that hot burner is a fire hazard. Oh Shit, you survived!

I’ve always thought about how cool it would be to I’ve in a storage unit like that and you have it set up almost exactly like I’ve always envisioned!! You didn’t mention though how much you paid monthly for it?? I know they’re not terribly expensive but depending on where you go they can get pretty pricey for a storage unit so I was just wondering how much you found yours for and without giving away the exact location what area or city were you in as well? Anyways I just had those two quick questions but other than that I’m very impressed on your work!! And congrats on your new apartment!! 😁👍

How do people walking by not see an antenna and a power cord running into a storage unit while everything smells like hot pockets and there’s loud noises coming from the inside as he slays weebs in fortnite.

I used to manage self storage facilities...a manager worth a damn would notice right away. Contract states "not to be used as a residence". My heart goes out to folks in tough positions but experience says folks living in units tend to break into units after hours....usually have mental health and/or drug issues. Clever but not all together smart.

You could cause a fire or a health code issue that could result in not only fines but legal action by the city against the owner. What are you, 5 years old? You could also lose your life if a fire broke out and you became trapped in that unit. Again, what are you, 5 years old? How irresponsible and childish can you be? All so you can galavant on so called adventures without giving any thought and consideration for what could happen to other people should the law find out what you're doing? There is a reason why apartments are for living and storage is for items or belongings. Who GIVES up their home to live like a porpoise in a unit. You should have more pride, dignity and self respect than that. And no, you don't look COOL to us. GROW UP and get your priorities straight-like being and acting like an adult, not a fool who still pretends he's on some adventure like Pee Wee Herman.

I think you're a foolish person. You never give up your apartment or your living space.

This is a joke. This isnt real. This guy would have been spotted so quickly. They do inspections all the time. The influx of power would show around peak nonuse hours a power draw. Stop faking bro. Anyone who has enough time and money for all this is obviously not staying here

How does one get away with this?! Sleeping there without getting caught is enough - but there is a tv and sink. 😳

No way. Those units are inspected daily. Plus there's all kinds of cameras. No one can successfully just live in one.

Where do you go to the bathroom? I assume you shower at work or a friends house.
H D (6 days ago)
If I were going to do that, I"d live a lot more simplistic. I wouldn't have the electric or running water. They're great conveniences but one can get by with far less than he is. And why take up so much space with so many things? I'd have a bed roll, clothes, few dishes, have a cooler to keep meat and milk cold. Not have so much to move if I got caught. Out in a flash. Plus no electric cord detected. He's taking too many chances, if this is actually on the level. What I like most about it is all of the privacy and security.

I have built several storage facility's like this. Trust me the present day owners now have cameras and full time onsite employees. This will not happen long in real world.

Damn. That's amazing. The 4 months I lived in a storage unit was utter hell. I would have held onto my sanity in your unit.
