Tiny Housing

No.1195396 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Let's say I owned 5 acres of land in Georgia.
Let's say I wanted to construct, or partially construct, a livable space - large enough to fit a bed, small kitchen area, small washroom space and a place to fit a computer. Would have plumbing and power. AC could be handled myself.
Let's say I didn't care for lots of bells and whistles.
Since it classifies as a home, how small a "house" could I make myself (or assisted with contractors) either from scratch or using a prebuilt structure like a large shed without building codes fucking my asshole?
I want a livable space that's cheaper than an apartment. As it stands my expendable money a month is $450, and that's before food costs; there are no apartments worth dying in below $550.
What are my options?

Can anyone point in the direction of a comprehensive guide on bending copper tube in 15mm & 22mm?

I'm going to be replacing my bathroom soon and I would like to utilize as many bends as I possibly can.

How can I bear/bore a whole through a penny with household objects or chemicals?

I have no immediate access to power tools but I do have some screwdrivers (star-pointed) and a hammer.

Removing rust and painting over scratches on car

No.1195288 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
So my mom scratched up the side of her car a while ago and she only told me about it now. The scratches are surface level and the several rust spots are about 1 inches by 5 inches big. I figure I'll do the repairs myself since the rust spots are pretty small and it's an old ass beater car.

I've never done this before though so I'm not too sure of the process involved, and I have no tools either. I'm thinking I need to get sandpaper first to sand off the rust first (what grit?) then prime over the bare metal? Is there a special primer I need for this or can I just get any primer that goes on metal? What paint do I need and will I need to apply some sort of top coat at the end? It's a shitty old car so I don't care if the colors don't match up exactly or whatever. I just want to fix up the scratches.
