Designer Gregory Kloehn Turns a Dumpster into a Cozy Home in NYC
A California designer has turned a $2,000 dumpster into a fully functional home, complete with a bathroom, bed, kitchen and sun deck. Gregory Kloehn converted the dumpster in Brooklyn off of a hunch, and now he uses it whenever he stays in New York.
Kloehn added wheels to the bottom of the dumpster so it could be more easily transported and carved a custom door on the side for easy entry and exit. For drinking water, he installed a six-gallon water tank on the roof. The same water is funneled into the tiny toilet when he needs to use the bathroom. The water is also hooked up to an outdoor shower.
The red-and-black-colored interior is insulated with padding and features a small seating area. But sleeping appears uncomfortable. He appears to only barely fit inside when he lies down. The small kitchen takes up one corner of the dumpster and features a microwave and mini stove. Both run on electricity. Photos: AP Photo/John Minchillo.
