    @mythic89 He obviously doesn't have a morgatage! lol

    But yes, it does take a lot of money for someone to do this.

    I'm stuck right now trying to find somewhere that won't fine me if I build a "house" without a 20k septic tank, or is so god damn far away from anything that gas is 10 bucks a gallon and it's 4 hours to a city.

    This is an insult to the several hundred true "desert rats" who have lived in a similar fashion, though in homes larger than closets, for decades before "sustainable living" became a buzzword! Less than four years living like a refugee should get the man pity, not a news story and I doubt very seriously you would even know about him, if he had not contacted you himself, begging for a story. This man cheapens the area!
