Maximising Space: Organisation Tips for Storage Units

Could You Live In a Self Storage Unit in Rotherham?

The short answer is yes, you can live in a self storage unit in Rotherham but it comes with a number of problems.

The first problem is that it is illegal – if the police find you living there you will potentially face fines or worse.

Some people assume that this would only happen if the storage unit was in a private facility but that is not the case.

Even living in a self storage unit in Rotherham that is in a residential area, such as the back of a home, is not allowed by zoning laws and if your local authorities find you living there you will be reported to the police.

Self storage units in Rotherham are a fire hazard, which is another reason why it is not a good idea to live in one.

You will not be able to cook in there because there is no way for moisture from boiling food to get out and of the unit and it will get very hot especially in the summer time.

Self storage units also have no water or plumbing – you will have to find a different place to wash or shower and use the bathroom.

Keep in mind that if you have children and you decide to live in a self storage unit in Rotherham with them you could potentially lose them to the ‘system’ if you are discovered by the authorities.

That said, there are many people who live in self storage units because they don’t have a choice. Since the economic downturn many people lost their homes and since they had nowhere else to go they rented out units that they sleep in them at night.

There are charities that have been set up to help such individuals.

So if you or anyone you know is homeless and sleeping in a self storage unit you should find assistance from one of them – they will help and they can help those individuals find alternative housing.

There are some counties in Asia where self storage units are combined to create great living spaces.

These, however, have water and plumbing and come with a small kitchen area and a bedroom as well as a living room area.

They are also often insulated so that they are comfortable in extreme weather or they have air conditioning.

This is obviously an expensive venture that cannot be afforded by the homeless, but if you find yourself thinking about it talk to the zoning authorities in your area before you get started on any off grid living project.
