...and you won't even know it!



You see, all of the benefits of modern living can be accomplished here. All it takes is a bit of ingenuity! Gotta love the creative minds of our age, giving us a new perspective on things.

Pre-orders, anyone?

Sign me up, imagine if you could use these to house people during a disaster instead of those horrible fema trailers?

I like the idea, very creative thinking

How is a homeless person supposed to afford all that equipment? Anyone that has money can do what he did. Let's see what he can do with nothing but a dumpster like a homeless person really does.

This is great information whether you want to do it in a dumpster or not. You could apply this kind of idea to many different structures and be comfortable (or close to it) in the most modest of shelters.

There was a guy living in a dumpster down the road and he always stays away from home on Mondays (when they collect the garbage). Sadly, we haven't seen him since he got real drunk on a Sunday night...

yeah it's all fine and dandy until the garbage truck comes by and turns your house upside down dumping out all of the contents

Avoid the color 'Dark Green' or 'Black' and you should be okay. Haha...

Thank you for getting the point!

It's not so much a solution for the homeless, per say, but more of a perspective you can use when designing in restricted spaces. People are so used to gigantic living spaces - often used for 1 purpose - that they forget these spaces can serve for multiple purposes.

This kind of thinking has been a big inspiration behind much of the newer designs of space saving, multi-purpose furniture.
