“Your house is a dump”


NEW YORK – Gregory Kloehn’s holiday home in Brooklyn, New York City, is different to most others in that it is not located in a tropical location and it isn’t actually a house.

Instead the California designer has decided to covert a $2,000 (£1,300) dumpster into a fully-functioning home that has everything you need to live in, including a bathroom and kitchen.

‘It just hit me,’ Mr Kloehn told the HGTV show You Live in What?

‘I thought, “hey, this is the perfect shape for a home”.’

Among other changes he made to the bin was to install wheels so it could be moved more easily and to add a water tank to the roof, which is used for the toilet and outdoor shower.

There’s also a fancy retractable roof that, when pulled back, allows extra light to be let in.

‘I think [passers-by] are just surprised that someone would take something like this and spend enough time to make it a home,’ he added.

What do you guys think about this? Would you ever have considered someone might do something like this? Let us know in the comments below.
