Studio Apartment Gets 15 Miles Per Gallon

San Francisco Studio Apartment Gets 15 Miles Per Gallon

The San Francisco Weekly reports about a couple who have modified a van and are living in it part time down by the river in San Francisco.

Quoting from the Weekly: 

There’s no denying it: Crockett Bodelson and Sandra Wang’s studio apartment is as cute as a bug’s ear — albeit not much larger than one. It’s well-lit, was almost entirely stocked via freebies on Craigslist (including an upright piano), and is decorated with the couple’s own artwork. Just make sure not to park it in a red zone and you’re golden.


Incidentally, Wang and Bodelson don’t currently live in the Peggy M — sleeping in a vehicle is against the law in most cities, and the couple have been hassled about it throughout the state. And in addition to being simply a cool thing to do, the Peggy M is an artistic statement about recycling and green energy (its electric is provided via solar panels).

Geez; the housekeeping police just can’t resist.

Love the studio apartment!

Down with laws telling people where to sleep!

Looks like a crack den. I wouldn’t be letting people see that if I were them.

AJB, Yes, because my statement was just so over-the-top. Twat.

The place looks like it needs a total renovation.
