Oakland artist, Gregory Khloehn, has this mind-blowing talent of turning just about anything into a home. He lives in a large dumpster in Brooklyn, equipped with almost anything – hardwood floors, a rooftop deck, a barbecue grill, granite countertops, and plumbing.
As an artist, he takes pride in creating cozy structures that he gives to the homeless individuals in his neighborhood. These so-called “little homeless homes” have the size, similar to a sofa. Aside from an inclined roof that protects the residents from the rain, they also come with wheels so that it can be rolled around town.
So far, about 10 tiny houses were already built, using illegally dumped trashes that are found on the streets in West Oakland. Its foundation is made from useless wood pallets, to which Khloen will add features like cup holders, mirrors, and windows. Other homes are insulated with surplus pizza delivery bags.
Khloen calls his project, “Tiny Houses Movement”. With this, he aims to provide comfortable dwellings for homeless individuals in the United States. Although the houses are not that big, he is quite certain that people will love it. With his simple efforts, he has made a huge difference in the lives of people.
