Tiny Houses Anonymous 07/23/14(Wed)02:24 UTC+1 No.671783 Report

I plan to build and live in a tiny house disguised as a work trailer. You know, the U-haul type looking trailers. It would blend in perfectly in a parking garage. I would buy monthly parking passes for both the trailer and my SUV. I've got all the design plans worked out except for the electrical work. I would need to hack into the garage's wiring and provide enough amperage to run a TV, fridge, microwave, etc.

That's why I'm posting here. I have no electrical knowledge and would be working with live wires. I know how retarded that sounds. Obviously I've got a lot of learning to do. What I'm asking is, how difficult do you think this will be?

>hack into pic related (took the pic in a local parking garage today)
>run matching metal encased wiring along the roof on the floor below where I plan to park
>drill a 1" hole through the concrete to bring the wiring directly up underneath my parking spot

I'll post my design plans and answer any questions /diy/ has

The CCTV cams will show you living there. Expect a late night eviction by PD.

btw, both of these boxes had "480 volts" written on their cover plates. You can kind of read it on the left plate.

rough design plans related.

no one watches CCTV cameras in a garage, they're just there to record any wrecks or crimes. Even if they were being monitored, I'm sure I could find a blind spot.

Internet would be piped in through 4G LTE, which is fast enough in my area to play FPS games on.

you're best option is to drop this entire idea and just throw a bed in the trailer and live in it that way
just don't be stupid

you will need a small transformer.. I think you could find a 5kw one somewhere but here is the problem, those lines look like #6 awg and probably feed ventilation equipment. As soon as someone notices those fans or whatever it is not working you are busted... 3-5 days max. On top of that you wont have enough juice to run much of anything without tripping the circuit. On top of all that you want to go fuck around with 480 live with no experience... wait a second. yeah just chop into them and start hooking stuff up, should be easy.
