Home Made From a Dumpster

Gregory Kloehn, an artist and designer from California, has transformed a new dumpster into a small home, which is fully functional and can house 2 people. He purchased the container for $2,000 and converted it to include a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and even a sun deck. One of the main reasons why he decided to create a tiny home from a dumpster was because it seemed to him perfectly shaped to become a house. The dumpster home is located in Brooklyn, NY, but it is also mounted on wheels and can be transported anywhere on a whim. Gregory lives in it when he visits New York.

Gregory began the conversion of the dumpster into a home by first cutting out a custom entrance into the side of the container. He then insulated the inside of the dumpster with padding and fitted a small sitting area inside it. The living area doubles as the bedroom, while there is storage space built into the sitting area. One corner of the dumpster is taken up by a small kitchen with a sink, a microwave, and a small stove which is powered by a propane tank.
