I’m interested in looking into the feasibility of large-scale dirt cheap housing (like living out of a car). Ideally, I would take any successes and try to provide housing for homeless or down-and-out members of the community. In order to do this, I need to try living in the conditions myself. If anyone has any suggestions or wants to try this with me, let me know. I am a recent graduate (early 20’s).

    In this context, swallowing their pride and living above the family garage rather than frittering away money on rent looks rather financially prudent. Second, the growth of intergenerational households shouldn’t be so alarming given how common this living arrangement is everywhere else in the developed world. In fact, the share of young adults here who live with their folks is still relatively low compared with the rate in many of our peer countries.

    Check out local salvage areas like junk yards,vehicle auctions, and local school systems getting rid of old buses. You may have to put a lot of work into it though it may be worth it long run.
