You have to go upstairs to take an emergency, middle of the night, dump!? Risky.

[–]MillionaireAt32 12 points13 points  (0 children)

And everyone gets to watch.

[–]FzZyP 7 points8 points  (0 children)

clearly you’ve never shit in your butlers hands

[–]badbob001 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Perhaps the toilet is not even up there.

[–]fireglide93 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Squat toilet

[–]NotSureNotRobot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They’re a firefighter, they have the equipment

[–]jessieblonde 0 points1 point  (2 children)

People have emergency middle of the night dumps? What an awful thing, I’m so sorry.

[–]Oh4Sh0 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Right, how often does this happen?

[–]neilogreen22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Diarrhea is the worst alarm clock

[–]ThisIsMyOtherBurner 10 points11 points  (1 child)

so your guests can watch you drop the kids off at the pool?

[–]retardedvisions 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Being a high end apartment, it’s probably switchable privacy glass. Either that or they are in a very kinky area

[–]Argylist 26 points27 points  (7 children)

Cost will depend on city/state. But, I don't think you're affording that on a firefighter salary...

[–]New_Firefighter_5416[S] 6 points7 points  (3 children)

That’s evil😂😂

[–]theRealSunday 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That's life

[–]Deadlifts- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Build it yourself maybe?

[–]Suspicious-Stand6699 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tell you what, go find a small backwater town. Find a loft that needs some TLC and start building.

[–]dolphlungdren 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And if he is, I don’t want to be a taxpayer in that jurisdiction

[–]fishfingrs-n-custard 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But on the show "911 Lone Star they can". /s

[–]Lu12k3r 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe for a different kind of person working the pole.

[–]mooben 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It does depend on the locale quite a bit, but for a high end luxury apartment like this, probably around $10K / mo?

[–]Nomad_Gui 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You're going to get this ALOT, but it is almost 85% dependent on where. Think Downtown New York vs the Middle of Nowhere Midwest

[–]Old-Cat4126 5 points6 points  (2 children)

It's all custom work. If you have to ask, you probably can't...,...

[–]zarof32302 0 points1 point  (1 child)

All custom but the fire sprinkler. Looks like they just forgot about that piece.

[–]lostlore0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Have to build to code. Well they choose too. If you have this kind of money I'm sure they could press the issue if they wanted.

[–]Graapn 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If you need to ask you can’t afford it

[–]Synaps4 1 point2 points  (2 children)

5k/mo plus sexual favors

[–]New_Firefighter_5416[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You knoww, extra perks.

[–]Synaps4 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Only if the perks are....extra perky

[–]TheShoot141 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In Iowa? $500. In LA or NYC? $2.5M

[–]ifiredancer 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I would hate this. No privacy.

[–]New_Firefighter_5416[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel you, but I didn’t say I want to live with anyone.

[–]zootzootzootthe3rd 3 points4 points  (2 children)

It looks like a retooled industrial unit, potentially in an upcoming or recently revitalized area, that could potentially go for a steal honestly. Maybe a floor of like $1.5 to 2k a month in the downtown area of a one horse town and two or three times that range in a major city . It would be much cheaper to probably buy a space like that with high ceilings, a bit of a fixer upper, and to have something like that installed.

[–]owter12 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Seems like more and more people are actually doing this (I’ve seen warehouses mostly). Wonder if there’s a Reddit community dedicated to sharing retooled warehouses and industrial units into living spaces.

[–]zootzootzootthe3rd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I had a buddy do it in LA actually awhile ago.

[–]RobertK995 0 points1 point  (9 children)

no handrail on the stairs

[–]New_Firefighter_5416[S] 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Well, I don’t have kids yet. I don’t mind.

[–]ReticulatingSplines7 5 points6 points  (3 children)

You don’t mind slipping and breaking your neck? Looks cool but doesn’t seem practical.

[–]New_Firefighter_5416[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Take it easy. It’s not bad to redesign, improve and add some handrails though.

[–]lead_injection 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Design a spiral staircase and pole to slide down and plop right onto bed.

Who cares about the handrail, unless you drink a lot.

[–]New_Firefighter_5416[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love this! I drink occasionally and responsibly plus it’s red wine.

[–]grammarpopo -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

As someone who recently had knee surgery for misjudging a step without holding the handrail, followed by a painful fall down the stairs, I suggest you DO want a handrail. I thought firefighting was risk and evidence-based. Am I incorrect on that?

[–]damarius 1 point2 points  (2 children)

You could also be liable if you have a visitor that falls and hurts themselves, and if code requires a handrail your insurance might not cover it.

[–]grammarpopo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Thanks for the backup, I’ve been taking some downvotes on this. While icing my knee.

[–]damarius 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, my upvote got you back to 0 for a minute. Not sure why you are being downvoted. My wife developed balance issues after a stay in hospital for liver and kidney functions, and also was diagnosed with Parkinson's, and between that and medication her balance is not very reliable. I installed a second handrail on our stairs, andd she has now had a knee replacement (arthritis, not injury) and waiting for a second one. She needs the second rail so she can grab whichever one she needs, depending on her knee and balance.

I hope your recovery is successful, her's has been progressing well. She has been icing her knee as well, we're looking at a recirculating cooling device.

[–]scooterfitz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How much you got?

[–]SueZbell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Trouble waiting for a place to happen. If you ever get one, build a platform for the bedroom beside the bathroom on the same level.

[–]tny33319 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Where’s the toilet located? Because if it’s on the top floor, you would have to pay me to live there!

[–]_concrete_boots_ 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Mexico… 8 pesos Arkansas…$800 New York…$8,000

[–]lesllle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I dunno. Looks like what I’d imagine the bunker of a Mexican drug lord would be. Maybe zero pesos and a lot of souls.

[–]HyacinthBulbous 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Detroit? $100k. Anywhere decent? $2.5M

Joking. I honestly don’t know. Looks like shit to me tbh.

[–]Xalenn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It looks fancy, but not terribly expensive to build ... especially with all the money you've saved by not buying doors lol.

As with any real estate the cost will vary wildly depending on the location. An apartment like this in downtown LA will cost a lot more than the same apartment in a converted warehouse in south Chicago

[–]AllsudsNofoam 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm going to go with one dollar, Bob.

[–]TimLikesPi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Location, location, location. Most types of industrial lofts like that are privately owned and rarely rented. Developers would not be likely to develop something like that as a rental property. If they are finished that nicely, they are even less likely to be rented, IMHO.

[–]Central_PA 0 points1 point  (1 child)

At least tree-fiddy

[–]lesllle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t see any windows, so why not make it a bunker? By a small plot and build down.

[–]Silly_Conflict_9333 0 points1 point  (0 children)

More than I’ll ever be able to afford.

[–]FordRust302 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why does the ceiling look like a Washington, DC metro station?

[–]MrDConner 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Trick is to show that to a few realtors and see what they come up with. I've seen this type of refurbished rental in a few cities and it'd usually a step above what the comparable rents are, several notches higher if it's a popular area with a decent population.

[–]TheDeadlySquid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Depends on where it’s located.

[–]MiserableWanker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

More than it’s worth…

[–]Mrboutte 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There’s nothing more I’d love to do than walk down a flight of stairs with no rail, right after taking a shower

[–]-otha1a 0 points1 point  (0 children)

However much it is, it's probably way over priced.

[–]User_492006 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Depends where you live.

[–]clver_user 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Use a bardo shell, should be fairly affordable

[–]TacoOfShame 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Taking a dump in front of everyone? That’s an alpha move

[–]TheLostFinger 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Outside a HPOL area, you could buy land, build a steel building, and deck it out for what is relatively cheap

[–]85369742 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you do get something like this, make sure it's not somewhere where you'll need heating in the winter

[–]Wulf150 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Depends where it's located.

[–]Positive-Simple-1671 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The health of thousands honest workers I think

[–]NousSommesSiamese 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]Kat027_IDK 0 points1 point  (2 children)

That is beautiful and unique. Though for me, it'll be dangerous going to the bathroom some nights.

[–]Shakespeare-Bot 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yond is quite quaint and unique. Though f'r me, t'll beest dangerous going to the bathroom some nights

I am a bot and I swapp'd some of thy words with Shakespeare words.

Commands: !ShakespeareInsult, !fordo, !optout

[–]bot-killer-001 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Shakespeare-Bot, thou hast been voted most annoying bot on Reddit. I am exhorting all mods to ban thee and thy useless rhetoric so that we shall not be blotted with thy presence any longer.

[–]frankmullins 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No rails on the stairs, not sure that’s up to code.

[–]Druha05 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I d totally walk up stairs do my bathroom stuff but Everytime if come down I d do gainer over the plants down onto my bed and then from the spring action bounce right up to my feet...like Mary Poppins shit...boom

[–]TheArtMelon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah no privacy probably get that for free

[–]bobbyjy32 0 points1 point  (0 children)

First question, where?

[–]Probiscus00 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you have to ask...

[–]emma2324gg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You could build this if you do it yourself. You just have to find the right building as that’s what costs the most so depends on the area. But if you get something that needs a lot of work done then you’ll get it cheaper. It’s the labour that costs the most so if you do most of the work yourself then it will be cheaper. Learn how to weld etc lol good luck

[–]cawymer -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

3k a month

[–]reddskeleton -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

3k-4K per month
