WATCH: Janesville plumber lives in camper in driveway to protect his family
Like so many fathers and husbands, Mike Barlass wants to do anything he can to protect his family.
As a plumber, Barlass is an essential worker, responding to emergency house calls during the pandemic. To ensure he doesnt risk picking up anything on the job and bringing it back home with him, Barlass has decided to go on a bit of an extended camping trip, making a home for himself in a camper parked in the driveway of his Janesville home.
