A California designer has turned a $2,000 dumpster into a fully functional home, complete with a bathroom, bed, kitchen and sun deck.
The man appeared on the HGTV show, “You Live in What?” because he converted a dumpster in Brooklyn, and now he uses it whenever he stays in New York.
He added wheels to the bottom of the dumpster so it could be more easily transported and carved a custom door on the side for easy entry and exit.
For drinking water, he installed a six-gallon water tank on the roof, and the water is used for his tiny toilet and his outdoor shower.
A small grill is also attached to the outside of the dumpster, and there’s an umbrella on the roof for shade and outdoor lounging.
He even has a retractable roof, just in case he wants to get some extra sunlight inside.
