A little more than a year ago we ran a house that had a most unusual addition. Remember the Budget-Add-A-Room strategy? Just back a cheap RV next to the house, and… instant extra living space! Also instant addition to Best of Burbed!
Hey, for a hundred year old house in the East Bay, this is a possible solution to cramped quarters. Now imagine what this would look like if some la-di-da designer got ahold of this idea and tried staging it to attract some Twithead with more money than taste or sense. It would probably look like today’s featured listing.
Thanks very much to Burbed reader Michael Boltonestater for this rip-roaring reboot.

Think Big in this modern SoMa loft! Polished concrete floors, west-facing industrial windows, soaring ceilings make this live/work space special.

Rare and unusual Winnebago nook creates a private, enclosed space. Kitchen w/ maple cabinetry, stainless steel backsplash, gas range, dishwasher, microwave. Full bathroom and storage area. Deeded parking and laundry in garage. Located at the western edge of SOMA, 55 Norfolk provides the best of SoMa nightlife, dining, shopping, tech companies. Access to shuttle buses, 101, and Bay Bridge makes commuting easy.
Hope you caught that: Access to shuttle buses. That means Google and Facebook, too! Now, check out the rate and unusual Winnebago nook.
Not too many listing photos have to come with safety warnings, either.
You can tell from this view that unlike the Castro Valley house, this SF loft/condo had to cut things down. You’re only getting a quarter of a Winnebago. Maybe 3 other units also get the “rare and unusual” nook.
Note that the house with the entire RV went for above asking.
