    It means "to live without the usual everyday luxuries" although without knowing the complete sentence or context, we can't say for sure that's what it means. Your title sounds to me as if it was taken from an article about someone who had a bought a house that needed a lot of work perhaps.

    Remember to start every sentence with a capital letter and that there is no need to put a space after an opening quote mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
