Doing a mobile entryway while our dream one was being built

My apartment was genuinely designed and then built by a man… Everything is geared towards being a man’s dream and a woman’s nightmare, then there is no storage someplace.

The bathrooms have tiny vanities and the hallway closet houses a huge HVAC unit and a water heater.

There is a big backyard shed to keep tools in though. There is also a room in the apartment with built in gun safes, floor outlets and clearly a spot for a pool table. The worst was the entryway though, then my entryway was absurdly small and set up terribly, and it was clear the previous owner never cooked. I looked all around the apartment trying to find a way to open the space up. There simply was no room to work. I realized that I needed to tear down a wall and expand the apartment in order to have a good entryway. The project was going to be messy and absolutely time consuming. I was looking at not having a entryway for almost a year; A lot of our friends told myself and others to just grill our food and clean dishes in the bathtub! Doing that for a year would have been horrible… What I did instead was find a portable entryway solution. A lot of food vendors for special events or restaurant owners will choose a mobile entryway. They have a shipping bag that has everything they need inside. There is electricity, plumbing and HVAC, but you can design the space to be a good temporary entryway set up. It is all housed in a shipping bag for an affordable price. It was perfect for me.
