    They make 50' extension cords. Half a dozen indoor 6-footers chained together should be fine. There's even an 8 outlet surge protector at the end to power the space heater and Coleman griddle.

  • That's way too much for a tool shed in Kelowna. Look at the junk around it. Sure, some of it counts as insulation, but even so, $100, $150, tops unless she removes that pile of boards and improves the landscaping.

    Of course, in Vancouver or Surrey, BC, that rent would look way cheap. There are people making $95,000 a year and living in worse in the oil patch in Alberta. In London, England, garages barely bigger than that toolshed have sold for GBP150,000.

    Location, location, location. But the yard looks like a dump, so it is keeping rents down.

  • "she was charging rent of $200 per month

    If they are paying rent on a place to stay, are they still homeless?

    kinky!
  • They weren't homeless until the city kicked them out of their rental. It's clearly better that they wander the street than live in sub par housing.

    Just make sure it is all plugged into a wall outlet that is protected by a Federal Pacific load center. Also knob and tube wiring would add a nice touch.
  • I think it was part of The Alienist by Caleb Carr where the author went over the troubles caused by tenement housing reforms, such as "Windows" getting cut into the shanties but there wasn't a specification that there be glass in the windows.

    I could be wrong and that's not where I picked up that bit, but I read that book 12 years ago and I've read so many better things since then.

    My van down by the river is almost $900 a month because of the waterfront view.
  • Iit really does seem like our government goes out of it's way to kick people when they're down on some fronts.
    There's a point where the almighty dollar needs to step aside, and let basic human compassion lead or find a better solution to the issue at hand. Or, at least use turning a blind eye as a tool for humanity rather than corruption..

    Hell you can weld without a welder as long as it's protected by an FPE breaker!
  • Damn it, Canada, if you're going to live in a garden shed, at least live in a wooden one. Metal conducts heat far too quickly; in sub-freezing temperatures, the inside of a metal shed can actually be colder than the outdoors.

    Subby's too stupid (or drunk) to deserve a greenlight.
  • I have a friend who did this for someone. Really saved the guy's arse. And the city had one less homeless person to handle.

    This story proves more bureaucratic stupidity.
