Yes, rent prices in the city are astronomical. Sure, it would be great to live off the grid. Is the solution a permanent dumpster dive? Gregory Kloehn seems to think so. This guy’s idea is garbage—literally. His place is a dump.
All puns aside, Kloehn lives in a refurbished industrial-sized dumpster. To me, that’s roughly 7 banana peels shy of being a bum. The artist, who purchased his humble commode, uh, abode, for $2,000 spent six months tricking it out with all the luxe amenities of a 1970’s camper. There’s a burner for cooking any item thrown in by passers by, a couch/bed with storage underneath, electricity and yes, even a toilet! Living large, Greg!
Kloehn maintains that this is far better than settling for some crappy, bug-infested apartment with fourteen roommates. I'm struggling to see the difference.
For me, I’ll stick to my van down by the river.
