ALMOST all of us will have experienced a house share at some point in our lives, but just how many people could you live with?
An average flat or house share in the UK hosts about three or four people with enough space and facilities for everyone to enjoy without stepping on each other’s toes.

The thought of living with others after university is a nightmare for some, but one woman has embraced the opportunity and lives with a whopping 70 other people.
Trish from San Francisco has gone viral on TikTok after sharing a sneak peek inside her gigantic mansion.
Over a million people have watched her videos which explain her co-living situation, and they’re all saying the same thing: it looks like a nightmare.
The mansion she lives in offers private, double and triple rooms ranging from £700 up to £1,500 a month.
Trish (who pays a lower rate) moved into the house in September 2021 and confesses that renters can get much more space and comfort in another property.
However, she says she loves her living situation and she’s very happy.
In a recent video, Trish takes her followers on a tour of the property, which boasts multiple kitchens and living rooms, a bathroom filled exclusively with sinks and an impressive movie theatre.
She begins in the lobby, which features a big mail room with post boxes, and moves through to the laundry room with four washing machines and four tumble dryers.
Also on the ground floor is a co-working space littered with computers and a living room with bicycles hanging on the walls.
The kitchen and main living room area looks surprisingly clean and tidy, and there’s plenty of counter space and sofa seats to relax on. Tenants also enjoy industrial-sized fridges and freezers.
Trish stops by the little gym and laughs at the ‘live, laugh, love’ mirror before explaining the hotel-style second and third floors.
Rooms are spaced close together along the endless corridors and there’s even a room filled with sinks shared by tenants to brush their teeth.
There are shower and toilet stalls, again all shared by Trish and her 70 housemates.
Over a thousand viewers commented on the quirky clip, airing their confusion and disgust.
One said: “This is like permanently living in a hostel, I couldn’t do it.”
Another agreed: “This is my worst nightmare.”
People couldn’t fathom the idea of cooking with 70 other people all at once, and had pressing questions about who does the cleaning and how conflict is resolved.
“Having to look at everyone else’s stuff they’ve just left lying around would drive me insane,” said one horrified viewer.
“It’s so messy and cluttered. Each to their own but I couldn’t,” confessed another.
Trish has invited people to ask questions and promises to answer them to fuel our curiosity.
