This. I glanced down the list of topics but didn't see the one from a few weeks ago about people driving 8987298374928734 miles to work every day from their suburban homes.

Saw that, loved it. Really works best for urban living. Privacy of a studio apartment, but stealth of a "plumbing" truck. Food, showers, internet and electricity available at work.

Great idea, good on him. It's better living conditions than sharing a bunk with many other people for 2K a month.

Wouldn't work here - you'd freeze or melt. I like his solution. I once had my living accommodations expire before my job notice was up. Parked my keister in a tent in a camp ground for a week or ten days at night during the summer. It got the job done. Was able to shower in the gym.
