Gallery: Dumpster Transformed into Modern Home by Artist Gregory Kloehn


Gregory Kloehn has taken the ultimate icon of trash and transformed it into treasure. Reclaiming a dumpster and calling it his own, Kloehn turned the trash receptacle into a high-tech home complete with a toilet, a grill, a barbecue, a water tank, electricity and granite countertops. But he’s not quite finished yet — he says he’s still got to add the television and a few cushions. If you can get past the idea that you’ll probably be sleeping within three feet of your port-a-potty-like toilet (there was no mention of plumbing) this green dream just might be the small-impact space for you’ve been looking for. Watch a video tour after the jump!
