California-based artist Gregory Kloehn is using his creativity and construction skills to build tiny homes for the city’s homeless out of recycled and reclaimed materials found on the street. Kloehn takes regular old dumpsters, with a few signs of wear and tear, and installs the essentials including a bed, stoves, sinks and storage shelves, to turn them into cramped but habitable shelters for those living on the streets. To prove his dumpster homes are fit to live, the artist has actually lived in one that he built for himself, and fitted with such conveniences as granite counter topped kitchen, a microwave, a mini-stove, a fridge, cushioned sofa and even a loo.
