I actually would like a basement pad. It keeps cool during the summer, and I bet with a little bit of tweaking you can keep it warm during the winter.
Lmao guys. Imagine the entire first floor of your house being empty because you live in the basement.
Well, the basement is typically a place for storage of junk and stuff, so deciding to squat there allows you to come up with creative ways to organize your stuff instead of just "shoving it down in the basement".
