Berkley Dumpster House Provides Basic Essentials and Some Bling

Berkley, California man Gregory Kloehn has taken the dumpster reuse culture to a whole other level with his dumpster house, writes Zak Stone for GOOD.

The house mixes the basic essentials with luxurious amenities:

"For Kloehn, self-expression includes decorating with items you'd only expect to find in a dumpster outside a Real Housewives cast member's home on moving day: granite counter-tops, stainless-steel kitchen appliances, hardwood floors, and a gas-grill. On a more basic level, there's a toilet, a six-gallon water storage tank, and a couple of power strips. At night, Kloehn can roll down the dumpster's lid, so that nobody knows he's living there."
