    Houses Are So Unaffordable, Young People Are Now Living in Sewer Pipes



    Living the dream.

    Houses are becoming so unaffordable for debt-stricken millennials, young people are now literally living in decorated sewer pipes.

    Yes, really.

    They’re called OPod Tube Houses and literally consist of reclaimed bits of industrial piping renovated inside with other left over pieces from building sites to make them into micro apartments.

    “Constructed out of low cost and readily available 2.5m diameter concrete water pipe, the design utilizes the strong concrete structure to house a micro-living apartment for one/two persons,” states a promo for the product. “OPod Tube Houses can be stacked to become a low rise building and a modular community in a short time, and can also be located/relocated to different sites in the city.”

    The pods are placed on spare bits of land and stacked on top of each other, allowing people to live their dream of being a human ant in a colony.

    The sewer pipes are becoming more widespread in Hong Kong, where the cost of living is prohibitively expensive, but expect to see the trend transfer to the west very soon.

    “The objective of architecture like the “sewer pipe house” isn’t to help humanity, but to humiliate and demoralize its occupants and those who live in the surrounding area,” commented one Twitter user who highlighted the issue.
