Dumpster Living

Have you ever thought about living in a dumpster?  Me neither.  But sculptor Gregory Kloehn of Berkeley, CA, thought it would be a great idea!

Kloehn, who received his MFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, CA, has created a one-person livable home inside of a dumpster.  That’s right.  And believe it or not, his little place is rather chic.  With a toilet, running water, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, an upstairs lounge, and an attached grill, Kloehn has made this little space livable, even luxurious!

In an era when small, practical homes are increasingly becoming the norm among the eco-conscious, this little dumpster studio appears to fit right in with the times.  But would you really want to live in a space where standing without watching your head is downright impossible?

No matter, Kloehn’s concept is an interesting one and, if it catches on, could usher in a new wave of smaller than small homes.
