You Can Live in a Caboose!

Unread postby Jochs » Thu Nov 17, 2016 11:29 pm

For $975 a month, you can live in a caboose in Louisville, KY, at Germantown Mill Lofts.

I saw this on WSBT 22 news this evening, but couldn't find a link to it on their website. The article I found is from almost a month ago. So much for WSBT being "First, Fast, and Accurate." :lol:

I like how they included photos with the report. It made reading that article much more enjoyable. :roll:

$975 sounds high for about 300 square feet.. Then again I'm not sure of the rental rates in Louisville.. And looks like there are photos now JT.

Apparently Metra has been having trouble getting rid of the old Highliners... A friend of mine tried to convince me last night that I should buy one & convert it into a house. :lol:

Lived in one for a few days on my first honeymoon at the red caboose inn. I wouldn't recommend it no matter how well insulated and sealed it is they are one drafty cold SOB. Every time gust of wind comes along they shake and move no matter how well tied down. Ok for a night or two but to live in one no way.

Once scrap prices rise again there will be no problem in getting rid of the cars. #scrapthemall #myexcavatorneedssomethingtodo
