Do you know anyone who lives in a shed?


#1

or in a van?
Or has built a house out of shipping containers?

If so, are they happy?

Someone on facebook has bought a transit with a view to living in it… seems like fun


Worst (innocuous) thread ever?
#2

I do not know anyone who lives in a shed or a van or anyone who has built a house out of shipping containers.


#3

If you did, do you think they’d be happy?


#4

can’t be certain either way


#5

i had a school friend who lived in a shed behind his family’s house because there wasn’t enough space in the house


#6

I know someone who lives on a canal boat. Resembles a shed and a van in many ways.


#7

Human beings are complex, multi-faceted creatures. I think they might be happy sometimes but I would very much doubt any claim that their default state was happiness.


#8

No but vaguely related, I want to buy a van set up some drums in the back so I can drive somewhere remote to practice drums. How feasible do people think this is

#10

I think that’s a great idea!


#11

my tv’s mum and stepdad live on a canal boat.

like a lot of canal folk, i think they actually mostly live in pubs, but they sleep on a boat.


#12

My ex’s brother lived in a really pimped out shed in their garden. It was basically like a studio flat, properly plumbed in etc. He is pretty happy I think but still a bit bummed out that he basically still lives at home with his parents.


#13

Lots of people in London pretend they live on boats, but in reality hardly anybody does, and those who do are deeply troublesome individuals who ought to be ignored.


#14

Yeah mate of mine lives in a shed in her parents garden.


#15

Reminds me of this article - BE MORTGAGE-FREE AT 30 (by borrowing £40k off your parents and building a shed in their massive garden)…


#16

Sort of, though he built it and did all the plumbing/electrics himself so nowhere near 40k. I’d be interested to know how much it did cost all in actually.


#17

I live in a glass cage of emotion


#18

£38k.


#19

I nearly rented a place in Oxford that was somebody’s shed that he’d done up. It was still £600 pcm, and this was a good six or seven years ago.

Speak for yourself Ant. I have but a single facet.
