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

119964 ratings | 7307900 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.

Just curious, what about a bathroom. My husband and boys all get up once a night to go to the washroom. Or if you get sick, a washroom comes in handy. Not criticizing just wondering.

This is a ridiculous amount of work to skirt around rent. How about giving up that 4k tv or gaming and surround sound for a legit living situation instead of putting other people's units and the owner of the facility at financial risk and loss when your shoddy electric set up fails and lights the place on fire. You should be sued, collectively in a civil suit by all your "neighbors".

And then you get caught for using the power because the power bill is being too much from when they’re not even using it

"I have all the amenities you would find in an apartment". Really? Do you have a toilet, shower, or a back fucking door?

He actually has storage space for the stuff he's storing. What a novel idea for a storage unit, having space to store the shit you're not using.

“This is my new TV I just bought, 4K Ultra HD, here’s my surround sound stereo with custom sliding rack to get sound projection corrected” BRO you live in a 8x6 storage unit, probably shouldn’t be spending money on stupid shit lol if your parents haven’t already told you, get your priorities straight dude lol

Sucks that there a lot of ppl and families in the U.S having to go through this just to have some normality because of whatever life situation they may have gone through. This should not be in a country to claims to be great when they can fix issues at home and so concerned about other countries and money that clearly goes for government(s) own use.

One question..... How did he tap into the electric, without frying himself? I mean, he'd have to turn all power off to do that, which would ring some alarm bells with employees!
