Anyone live at their work place?

My dream is to buy a half commercial half residential building and live there. Anyone have one of these, or live at their work place. Military doesn’t count

I always think about that idea, lots of independent insurance offices are converted houses. I would have my business office and live upstairs.

I used to, it was a purpose built cabin, but kinda military, we built our own little compound.

Im a homeless gay escort that can’t host so yes

Team work at their live place

I once had a small retail shop that I lived in. Slept on an air mattress I would throw in the floor every night. It sucked because after dark I had to draw the blinds keep the lights low and not be very loud because it wasn’t legal to live there.

Working from home (or living where you work - whatever) has its advantages and disadvantages.
.
I’ve done it for a long time now and one thing I’d say is that you’ll want to have a life outside of home (just for the variety), or make it such that you go out to work a time or few per week (e.g. - go to a coffee shop for the wifi).
.
It can get monotonous seeing the same walls not just all day every day, but seeing them at night, too.
.
(Not sure if I’m expressing that very clearly…point is that you just gotta spend time away from your home / office / workspace or else it’ll end up getting to you.)

Had some friends that had a family restaurant and they slept on the floor when they had marital problems

I almost bought a 4 story building with apratments on floors 2 and 3 with a huge open area, literally a basketball court and dance floor, on floor 4 that i woukd have turned into lofts. The ground level was offices. The building needed asbestos/lead removal so I backed out when i sae the price tag. It was a great property but the remediation would have cost almost as much as the building.

When I was single, yes.

I work at home, does that count?

I have it perfect. My pub, catering company smokehouse, office and parking lot are together with 2 apartments and one.designated air bnb rental. My house is 400 yards up the street.

Yes. I give table showers and body rubs in my basement.

I lived in a decent closet in the gear room for 6 weeks until i found a place to live when I was a guide.
We had a fridge, shower, like 20 camp stoves lol, it was fine. My 150lb malamute lived there too.

I lived in gubmt housing when I was a ranger, 3 different parks. At one I had to walk through the office to get to the shower.

This all but 1 day a week, and that’s voluntary.
