I don't understand this situation at all! Are you just renting a room? Is it actually broken up into separate apartments or is it a communal thing? Sounds like you are renting a room in a the home of an extended family. It is not uncommon among some nationalities to have the families all pool resources and live together - separate but alone so to speak. That is not a problem - except as it involves the lone non-family members. If this is an individual apartment, for which you have a rental agreement, I cannot see how they can just commandeer space from you!!! (Of course, I'd be careful not to get a person angry that makes bullets). I think you really need to get legal counsel either to get them to comply with normal housing procedures or to get out of your lease. Personally, I'd be packing right now if I were you. I don't know what components are now used in bullets, but it would seem to me that there are some inherent risks with combustability, etc here which would pose great risks for the inhabitants should something go wrong. Make sure you have an escape plan in effect in case of fire and that your smoke detector is working.
