He'll burn himself out ... and then go rent a place.
He could save money by finding a room mate among the other representatives -- there are lots of congress critters who do. (Let's leave Bawney's Bwothel out of it....)
I read that in the olden days there were boarding houses that specialized in putting up congresscritters.
The fact that D.C. was barely habitable (and downright dangerous in the pestilential summer season) until the late nineteenth-century had a lot to do with the upholding of the ideal of the citizen-legislator.

Yeah. And what’s he going to do - order food in all the time? Even with a small fridge and microwave, I’m not sure how much money this guy would save. Plus, I’m sure the Capitol is crawling with mice and other wildlife. Is it ever really quiet there? Could this guy get a good rest on a cot in a busy building, night after night? Doubt it. I wouldn’t want to sleep there. He should go get a small studio or bunk with other legislators.
He comes home on weekends.
