Can't afford home, man lives in closet

Man turns closet into living space
Reported by: WPTV staff

DELRAY BEACH, FL--Almost everybody has heard the phrase, "Home Sweet Home", but what about "Closet Sweet Closet"?

That's right, Sergio Santos' home is a closet. Five and a half feet wide, by 14 feet long, or 77 square feet, to be exact.

"I was really struggling to pay for the place I used to live. I decided to look for something cheap." said Sergio.

The rent is $150 a month and to furnish his pad, a whopping $64.

"I have just become very well-fitted here," he said.

The "room" is equipped with a small microwave oven and a mini-refrigerator. He shares a community bathroom with other renters on the same property. The closet is part of a living space above a restaurant.

All the work has been done with recycled materials and, upstairs, the loft bedroom.

There was a time when Sergio even questioned himself.
