If you can come and go as you please for however long you want, how is merely sleeping inside any different?
Where are you going to shit?
Just live in the grocery store anon
>>52606078lmao, waaay back in the day i heard a story of someone who did this, from an insurance adjustor friend of mine. this dude had moved all his shit in, rigged up some electricity from a plug in the hallway and just daisychained extension cables to run all his stuff.one day while he was at work the dodgy electrics caught fire and burnt the building down.i'd imagine that's a pretty big reason, lol
>>52606078Just squat in empty houses for sale.
>>52606119But you wouldn't be allowed to use the electricity regardless, that's not what you're rentingWhat you are renting is a space where you can store anything you want, and also access at any time of the day for however long you want toIn theory you could sit around in the unit all day just fine, but the second you sleep it's some whole different thing, the distinction seems arbitrary ultimately
Because you'd get compared to this gigafaggot. Have some fucking dignity. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrgmeSFZf1E
>>52606078Cause government says it's not good for you. Trust government
>>52606109>Where are you going to shit?Stores sell these things called buckets, get familiar with them.
A contract typically states that "human habitation" is prohibited, which is up to the business to decide what that entails
>>52606078>just pay to live in a closet bro
>>52606249But what actual difference does it make whether I'm there for 8 hours awake or 8 hours asleep?
I was considering this to save money. I'm still looking for alternative housing stuff that actually could work...Rent is too expensive here.
>>52606153you'd literally cook in the summer, and freeze solid in the winter, lmfao
>>52606078trust the science
>>52606078A prison cell depending on country has better conditions than this and is free. Something to consider
>>52606263I'm obviously talking about climate controlled units
Why aren't there places that offer tiny bedrooms the size of like a prison cell for cheap? In NY and SF i think they have these, but are super expensive.
>>52606262Something similar in price is an office space, which would probably be easier to get away with>>52606271Been there done that, it's boring as hellIt is pretty based to live rent free leeching directly off the state though
>>52606260YOu can do that
>>52606235>living in a storage container with a bucket of your own shitCryptocurrency investment didn't pan out huh?
>>52606279>Why aren't there places that offer tiny bedrooms the size of like a prison cell for cheap? In NY and SF i think they have these, but are super expensive.Because we want you to go back not stay
>>52606078They legally have to provide you with heat and running water.
>>52606153There habitability laws in place.
>>52606420This and this>>52606249The contract you sign for renting the unit makes you agree to not live there up to their discretion, or else you break the contract and police are called/ you are kicked out. They would legally have to provide you with water, electricity, and a toilet and heat/cooling to be legally considered "livable" otherwise someone can't stay there. If they see you consistently staying there for 6+ hours a day and decide you're out, you're out.
>>52606433Homeless people exist.
>>52606132better off getting a shitter car or something that can shelter you from the elements to sleep in and getting a 40 dolalr gym membership to an overnight gym and they cant kick you out of the parking lot.
>>52606483and you have shower and bathroom access
>>52606174>gigafaggotSeems pretty based to me, even doing his best to put his mind into figuring out a business path.
>>52606504and water fountain/sink access, and getting ripped access, and gym buddy access to feed you protein powder and juice, and possibly vending machine access, and cute desk girl access, and heart defibrillator access if you start to die, and warm towel access, and sometimes hot tub/sauna access
Zoning laws, insurance liability, building codes, fire codes, tax code classification, safety and security issues for the people storing and retrieving their stuff where some dude is camped out, and probably a dozen things that I can't think of off of the top of my head.>inb4 muh freedomsA lot of the above are written in blood because new building and fire codes get added when people die and yes you want them enforced.>ah dont need duh gubmint nannying me!When you're talking about living in a fucking storage unit to save money it's fairly clear that you're not capable of seeing to your own well being even to the level of the average citizen, and that's a low fucking bar that you still can't seem to cross.
>>52606279They literally have these at the Atlanta airport. They cost $50/hour.
>>52606608>security issues for the people storing and retrieving their stuff where some dude is camped outLOL pussies
>>52606641>he said>on his computer
>>52606235Well that's illegal, you can't just store biological waste in a public area
>>52606649not my problem
>>5260660950 an hour???For a jail cell?Wtf
>>52606483>>52606504When I was homeless and living out of my car (for like a week so take this with a grain of salt), I would use gym membership trials to shower for free, and sleep at the highway rest stops that truckers frequented (because with that kind of traffic they were relatively safe). I saw other people doing the same thing. I'd also throw in a cheap AirBnB for a night every week or so, so that you can sleep in a real bed and shower leisurely regularly.
>>52606078why would you?I just go on a walk and grab some of these catalytic converters and then resell them for 900 bucks each. I live in a big house with 8 rooms and 2 bathrooms and a kitchen.
>>52606078Look at office space. Just need to keep in away so it doesn't look like you live there.
>>52606235>I sleep next to a bucket of my shit.kek
>>52606608>When you're talking about living in a fucking storage unit to save money it's fairly clear that you're not capable of seeing to your own well being even to the level of the average citizenI'm with you up to this point. Be real, man, you know that capacity for self-sufficiency has an arbitrary (or at least unintuitive) relationship with actual access to basic needs in this country. There are total morons living in McMansions and actual geniuses/survivalists carrying all their worldly possessions in shopping carts. The "average citizen" only has housing because society bends over backwards to keep the 2 SD crew from having a reason for a revolution.
>>52606433Those laws are more to stop people building shit houses (which they shuold be able to do if they want/aren't impacting outside their land) and not rental units. I can't go build a cabin innawoods in Australia if I own the land. Shits fucked. I can't get a rural property and get a cheap fabricated barn slapped down and live in it for the same reason.>jews
>>52606446Not to mention it's not zoned residential
>>52606608>A lot of the above are written in blood because new building and fire codes get added when people die and yes you want them enforced.I can't pour a slab, construct a simple steel framed + steel cladded barn and live in it (alone) in Australia for many various reasons. One such example (even if sewage is connected) is that a toilet must be in an enclosed room. There are also laws about kitchens. Even if I live by myself. Its retarded.>its to stop landlords cost cutting on rentalsPerhaps, but the rental law could have this and not building your own shack you have no intention to rent>people might buy it in futureWell they can see what it has, its condition,etc. If they don't want a steel box with a bbq and a toilet without walls then don't buy it.
>>52606863Just identify as abo
>>52606109>>52606235>>52606766Most people use a construction bucket with an airtight lid. Not me though. The other storage bros call me Mr Bucket
>>52606766That is what Canadians do
>>52606279I'll never understand communities that build new apartments for "affordable housing" purposes, but its always just 2-3 bedroom units that take up a ridiculous amount of space.They could easily make each unit be 1b/1b and then focus the extra space on better amenities such as balconies, larger gyms/pools ect.You can't tell me these big complexes couldn't make money if they had 500 units for 750 a month.
>>52606078A few years ago I started my own business, a martial arts dojo. I rented a warehouse with a mezzanine office and had sprung mat flooring in the warehouse space. I rigged up an entrance with timber that would keep out insects and unwanted people.There was a shower, toilet and sink in the warehouse area. At night I would close the dojo, have dinner in the office then shower and sleep in a bed I set up in the office. In the morning, I'd wake up, shower, have breakfast and do some chores before the first students arrived. I did this day in and day out for about a year. It was a very comfortable existence and I had my own dojo and gym 24/7.I didn't have a kitchen unfortunately, so I ate mostly rice, pickled vegetables, fruit and nuts. I did have a fridge though. Business folded due to termite infestation which ate away everything I built. Insurance didn't cover it and I couldn't afford a refit. I gave up trying to teach martial arts as a business after that.
>>52606078>What exactly is illegal about living in a storage unit?it's illegal to live so cheaply why do you think the bastards are so happy to raise the price of rent? i'm barely getting rid of my nft with zoodao for this, i just want to live in peace in a box
>>52608122you are not the first
>>52607870That is sad bro, but that sounded like a good experience to have under the belt. Hope your next thing goes better.
>>52606930Did a leaf fuck your gf or beat you up? You fucking nerds are always crying about Canadians when Canadians could give a fuck less about you fat asses.>t.New Brunswick.I laugh whenever Amerimutts have another shooting.I love firearms, I just think its funny when mutts gun eachother down in shart mart.
>>52607870you should’ve used your martial arts skills to hunt down, torture, and slay the employees or owner of the insurance company.You had to pay out money for the insurance coverage, and then they don’t pay out and do their fucking job when you take a hit? I’d go ballistic on them.
>>52606109Gas stations, Universities, Public buildingds, Shopping mallsI am a fucking Urban Bear Grylls - Ask me anything
>>52608461Insurance companies are professional faggots that will find any way they can to not pay you, even tiny clauses and shit.
>>52607870sad but cool story, you tried something exciting. Big win regardless of termites.
>>52606779>geniuses carrying all their worldly possessions in shopping cartslol
>>52606279There are tiny homes like this, they cost like 150$/month. But ultimately you have to understand that the system can only function if people need to wageslave to have a roof over their head. This is due to all the land being owned by someone. All land is already owned either by private entities or the state. Allowing anyone to live in a shed anywhere is an anarchist concept and no state allows that. That's why cops regularly destroy anarchists camps in europe. In the usa there are communities living in the middle of nowhere, for free. The state just turns a blind eye and would never allow it on a mass scale
>>52606078>no bathroom>no kitchen or access to water>no heating>just a cold empty boxIt's better living in a van at this point.
So why cant you just live in those boxes? Because of the laws. It's just forbidden.
>>52608480How do I shower?
>>5260867624/7 gyms or a sponge + a bucket of water + soap to clean yourself
>>52606078Im sure you could get away with it for at least a few months before someone snitches. The question is, why? As anons have mentioned, you're better off living in your car/van. At least then you have mobility and can shit/piss outside. Also the reason you arent allowed is due to zoning laws. I looked in to buying a cheap warehouse space and converting it in to a living space a few years ago and it's near impossible to do legally. Im sure if you did it you'd get away with it for a few years at least but eventually someone would snitch or some authority would catch on.
>>52608698Isn't it more because: a) the storage company doesn't want you fucking living there, and b) it's a fire hazard.
>>52608706The company legally can't build an appartment complex. If the wanted to do that they would need to do it in a legal zone. It's a complete different business depending on many other laws
>>52608695I've shaved at the mall and sponge bathed in the toilets once or twice. Starting a new job Tuesday lads
i feel like you're much better off just building a little scrap shed on some unused land in the woods most experienced homeless people tend to squat VERY far on the outskirts of their metro area, that way nobody can find their camp, nobody bothers them, they can consistently work etci used to do a lot of exploring and found many hidden squatter camps in the woods
I say do it, sure you'll get caught eventually. Depending on security you could just jump the fence with a small backpack, sleeping bag and cardboard to sleep on. Then just go inside an unlocked unit. Just don't smoke.
>>52606078>even entertaining this ideaHoly shit America is truly a third world country
>Have a bunch of storage units you want to rent out>Turns into hobo-town with buckets of shit and piss everywhereIm thinking this is why.
>>52606653>"not my problem">gets arrested for trespassing and shitting in the streetyou're not as cool as you think you are, shit-covered hobo fren
>>52608480How can I steal high speed internet (for semi-formal Skype and Zoom calls), while still having a workplace that is quite? I can go to the entrance room of the public library, but the Wi-Fi is shit. Starbucks is usually pretty loud and also has shit speed.

>>52606078I honestly wouldn't mind living in a cram room if they existed in the US. $250 a month, a hot plate, and a gym membership, and I would be set.
>>52606766That is what we did in the military
>>52609096They do, it is called shoebox apartments.You will find them all over NYC
>>52609111>in NYCfor $250 a month?
>>52609111He said 250$, not 2500
>>52606078Why would it be?It depends on whether the owner lets you live there, but there is no law against it.
>>52606174that's pretty based
>>52606260>But what actual difference does it make whether I'm there for 8 hours awake or 8 hours asleepthe difference is youre responsible. anyway, what if you died in there? they clearly say you cant store biological matter in there so if you die in the unit you are getting fucking fined bro

>>52606078they lock from the outside. you'd need someone to lock you in and then unlock you each night
>>52606153>seems arbitraryNah. Big distinction as tenancy laws exist literally everywhere. If people could live in a $300/mo storage unit they would, and your liability would shoot through the stratosphere.

desu nothing was more comfy than to sleep in my SUV outside of an Anytime Fitness. Need to piss? go inside. Need to shit? go inside. Need to shower? go inside. Need free wifi? go inside. ALL of your electrical needs are satisfied as long as you don't make yourself too obvious - use the public library for infinite knowledge, wifi, and electronics charging. Park close enough to the gym for night-time wifi. Eat 1/2 a rotisserie chicken for dinner, the other 1/2 for breakfast. Chow down on bags of fruit, like apples or mandarin oranges, eat your multi-vitamins, enjoy the fresh veg that they sell that comes pre-washed in a bag. Treat yourself every once in a while to some value meal stuff if you're craving something hot. Buy a couple $50 wool blankets - they helped me get through ridiculously cold nights and I was snug with only my nose outside of them. rent a PO box at your local post office. Camp fucking anywhere - you don't even need to pack! Enjoy snug solitude and independence. Park near other vehicle-dwellers and enjoy like-minded company and the knowledge that there are others looking out for you as well. I'd still do it if I wasn't married. It's nicer having somebody that loves you, but tbqhwy, living in my car was definitely better than living in a room in a house. you will save INCREDIBLE dough. Pod living on your own terms makes sense when you're very young. Obviously as you start to get more financially set up you'll want to get a nice place, but when you're young and crazy and healthy, why not? fuck, everywhere I drive I see cars and think, "i could live in that" and I get little flashbacks to being sooooo fucking snug in my multiple layers of wool and all my stuff surrounding me while I get a nice, cool rest.

Hell your better off just living in an R.V. Least with the R.V you can drive it. For laundry just hit up one of those coin op places. Get a cheap ass piece of land with a barn on it or with some structure that has electric/water and your golden.
>>52606766I mean you literally walk around all day and sleep all night with shit rammed inside you, so a bucket next to you aint so bad.

I would live in the pods for 200/mo
>>52606554>>52609506>>52615213WEF drones. My fucking mudroom is bigger than that storage pod.
>>52606078probably the same reason why laws are in place to stop people from walking on train tracks
You can't actually do this anymore. Storage unit businesses have caught on and they do everything they can to prevent squatting now. The only way you can pull this off is if the storage unit is completely unstaffed or you have a friend working the place.
>>52606109>you vill live in ze podThey have bathrooms
>>52611504haha what a story mark
>>52609096>he thinks that would cost $250/month in the new dystopian hell holelel try $2000. gotta reduce our footprint on the earth
How can this be achieved? Obviously zoning laws and storage companies don't want you to do it, but how do you get away with it?
>>52608662>no bathroom>no kitchen or access to waterThere's a thing called bottles my dude
>>52606254100 a month for a 150-200 sqft unit you fucking do the math
>>52606078imagine riding a bike at full speed in here
What's even the point? I have a storage unit and per square foot the rent is basically the same as my apartment, which is wired for electricity, has heating and cooling, running water, etc. Just get a dinky ass studio in the same area, I guarantee it isn't going to be that much more expensive than what you'd be paying for a storage unit but far more livable.
>>52618963How much would this cost per month?
>>52606078that is a very anti-semitic question and I don't think it fits our board culture

Is there anything stopping you from parking a van at an interstate rest stop and just staying there?
>>52623294You're generally only allowed to stay there for a day or two before the police ask you to move on, however there are plenty of other places where you can stay for weeks or even months without anyone putting up much of a fight

>>52627651>Sun Ken Rockmuch love!
I managed a storage facility for a few months, the company I worked for was constantly expanding and building new properties. These things are built the absolute cheapest way possible, including the labor that puts them up. Electricity is rigged up by some late 20's-mid 30's construction grug running on his 5th Monster Ultra cause he's worked 50 hours this week already and it's only Thursday. We constantly had to have repair crews come in to fix wiring, repair damages from windy weather, etc. Poisonous ass bugs LOVE getting into these things to in the outdoor units. You're better off buying a pre-built shed from Home Depot and setting it up on a cheap plot of land somewhere.There's so many legalities involved with these contracts and agents are encouraged to basically just get you to sign after stating the basic rules. Most places will just have access codes stop working after a certain time and someone watching live video to keep people from living in them.
>>52606078These things get hot and it's easy to suffocate. Since it's not rated for human habitation, it means the company is liable if you die in there.
>>52629443Climate controlled units
>>52629433>You're better off buying a pre-built shed from Home Depot and setting it up on a cheap plot of land somewhereOk sir that'll be $40,000
>>52610141Where is the zyklon b opening, i can't see it
>>52629433>Most places will just have access codes stop working after a certain time and someone watching live video to keep people from living in them.So you just have to get tucked in before that time.
>>52606078I was just in the pacific northwest and they have these indoor climate controlled """storage facilities"""" all over the place.I think they are basically intended to function as living units for homeless people but it's supposed to be hush-hush because the government acknowledging this as a solution would be a scandal.
>>52606078anyone here actually do this?
>>52606078if you’re homeless just keep an air mattress there and don’t stay all day
>>52610141>Sleeping pods for homelessThey own nothing, and they're happy
>>52623414>however there are plenty of other places where you can stay for weeks or even months without anyone putting up much of a fightfor example?innawoods is the obvious answer but being too far from a shower and proper toilet sucks
>>52623414Interesting. Please tell me more
>>52606109there's a hotel, restaurant and gym nearby, i'm sure i can manage
>>52632358>>52632448The best option is a Walmart in a small town with a gym and starbucks nearby, this way you don't even need to spend anything on gas
