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 ( 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 would do that, but the idea of someone being on the other side at any point high key scares the hell out of me

    No way! Around here, storage buildings all have motion control sensors, and managers living on the premises. Bars, speakers, and water seems unlikely. I had to laugh about the washer and dryer comment.

    With all the money and time he invested in making this unit liveable, he could have afforded a decent apartment.
