Man Makes Dumpster Into Home, And We’re Not Hating It

By: Alyson Penn / August 10, 2013

Gregory Kloehn, a California designer and proud dumpster dweller, is livin’ the dream, my friends. Not only is this oversized trash receptacle his Brooklyn vacation home, but as it sits atop wheels, he can totally move it outside of the NYC borough. You know, like a little portable bachelor pad. Vegas, here he comes! He converted the $2,000 dumpster into a cozy portable home, complete with a kitchen, toilet (?), bed, retractable roof, and water tank. And truly, what else does one need? He described his epiphany on the HGTV show “You Live In What?” with this explanation: “It just hit me. I thought, Hey, this is the perfect shape for a home.” How do the ladies resist? Kloehn: 1. The rest of us: 0.  [Daily MailMetro UK] [Image courtesy of Metro UK]
