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.
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.
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
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.
And here I built a bar for my liquors (very important) and things...and I have a surround sound system for when I want to rock it loud, since you know, I need to keep a down low...and I have nunchucks just in case I get rob.
This is the guy who owns or whose brother/friend owns the storage company and said to him 'dude we could make a couple hundred grand on AD revenue making a youtube channel where we make people think someone actually lives in a storage unit'
Most of these have electronic Gates they know when you come in and they know when you don't leave I don't know how you're getting in are you just at one of them that doesn't have cameras and electronic Gates
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
