Like the title says, my friend owns an empty plot of land (zoned residential) near downtown Los Angeles. He hasn't built anything on it because he doesn't want to gentrify, but he brought up that I could make use of it if I wanted to move there.

I can't afford to build a proper house and neighbors will likely call the cops day #1 if they see someone camping in a tent or building a shanty. I don't have the technical skills to build an underground super-villain lair.

I'm looking for creative ways to "live" or take shelter on this small plot.

if you have proof you can live there you should be able to (potentially) do whatever you want.

that said, you could try a domocile that is slightly more permanent, such as a teepee, yurt, etc. can you build a fence around the property? build one 10ft or so high and then the neighbors can't do (or see) shit.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
