650ft² is doable for a single person on the short term.

I guess if it's what you're used to? Living out of a hotel room doesn't leave much space for a lot of belongings. It's bad enough being cramped up in one for a few weeks when traveling on business ... I couldn't imagine living in one permanently.


I think you'd find that you don't really need all the stuff that is stored in your 2000 sq ft living space.

I would bet that there are rooms in your house that you haven't used for months.

It's a lifestyle choice.

I get what you're trying to say about needs vs wants, but if my needs can be met in 650 sq. ft., I don't expect to pay $3.50 per square foot to get it. That's just crazy. Residential living spaces in Virginia Beach are around $1.70 per sq. ft.

Basically, $150k per year in Silicon Valley is roughly equivalent to $75k per year in Hampton Roads. And Silicon Valley isn't like Manhattan, where you can find anything you could possibly want by walking a few blocks, even if it's to a Subway station. Silicon Valley is a frickin' suburb, where you pretty much need a car to get to the clubs and nice restaurants that make that kind of rent worth the price. In other words, it ain't worth it.


It's not worth it to you.

Unless you don't believe in market forces, it's worth it to a lot of people.

you do realize kali is losing population due to its tax structure, the earthquakes and the cost of living


That's not true, but OK.

I guess one could go the route of Ben Affleck in The Accountant and park a Streamline in a storage unit.

If things get really tight, live in the camper. LOL

They're half the square footage at the same cost of a trailer. Only benefit is it is more mobile.

Been there, done that and it wasn't bad at all.

Didn't park in a storage unit though. :)

We're looking at trailer RVs now, I could see someone living in one for a while. There's a house hunter type show about people buying RVs and "fulltiming" in it. There are some nice ones. The only time I think I'd go crazy is when it's really cold outside for an extended period, or raining for an extended period.

For sure, that's why we need the indoor and outdoor kitchens!

We have a 26 footer. Dad got the fall before he passed away and never had a chanced to use it...we've put it to good use though.

We had a 22' Airstream and I put it to good use down in TN after graduation for 4 months. :)

Love the airstream, not sure it's worth the extra coin as our first RV though. What make is your 26 ft.?

1978 GMC 26' Motorhome...he picked it up for a song down in Crossville, TN.

My grandfather bought the Airstream Safari and brought it back to VA when we were living in Bellflower, VA...when he passed away in '77 my Dad got it. It survived just about everything until an ice storm in '83 brought down an Oak tree on top of it. :(

my neighbor who bought the 100 acres beside my land is doing that now, he put his house up for sale and it sold in 3 days, he did not expect it to sell near that fast so they are living in a fifth wheel RV while the new house is being built
