The housing situation in San Francisco is bad, and here's the latest morsel of proof. Peter Berkowitz, a new SF resident, lives in an eight-foot box he built himself that is placed inside an apartment's dining area. He pays $400 per month in rent. His roommates each pay around $800 for their "real" bedrooms. It's the ultimate balance of cost effective vs claustrophobia, but Berkowitz enjoys this living arrangement, as it allows him a quiet, undisturbed space.
