Making the most out of a minuscule living space is something of a rite of passage in New York City.
Studios used to be the extreme, but then came the rise of “micro-apartments,” challenging dwellers to new heights of consolidation.
And now, thanks to one designer, we may have come across the smallest (and strangest) apartment yet: A dumpster.
Gregory Kloehn has converted a $US2,000 commercial dumpster into a fully functional living space, complete with bathroom, bed, barbecue and a deck. He was recently featured on HGTV’s “You Live in What?” and took viewers on a tour of his tiny home.
“It just hit me,” he said. “I thought hey, this is the perfect shape for a home.”
You’ve got to see this for yourself.
