This is the PodShare coliving concept in Los Angeles. It’s a membership-based live/work community, kind of like coworkspaces but you can also spend the night here. You get your own bunk bed with charging stations plus access to a shared kitchen and bathroom.

The catch? Your bunk has no privacy! But that also means no funny business. PodShare provides toiletries, toothpaste, clean towels, and food. Would you ever consider staying in one of these? Have you ever tried working out of a coworkspace?

Since there are already so many oversized houses in the market it’s a smart and environmentally friendly way to split a house up into more than one unit. Some people might decide to split their house in two.

Families might want to just create an in-law type of studio within their house. That’s what my Dad is doing. So here’s a quick pro/con list to renting part of your home’s space out.
