Brooklyn Man Redefines the Studio Apartment

 Image via NYPost.comYes, 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.
