Shotlist :AP Television / AP clients onlyBrooklyn, New York - August 8, 20131. Soundbite (English) : Gregory Kloehn ( klane), Dumpster designer :" I call it the Dumpster home. So it is a home. It's not an apartment. It's not attached to anything else. For me it was a challenge what I could make a home out of. And I saw a dumpster. And I thought hey that's a perfect shaped house. Looks like a little metal tent. Maybe I can convert that into a viable home. I have kitchen complete with toaster oven, sink and a single burner. On the outside you can bolt on a bar-b-que. All that's powered by a five-gallon propane tank. There is a toilet in there. There is storage underneath all the benches. The benches serve as a sofa, and as a bed. There is a little cooler as far as a refrigerator is concerned. When you drag in a little extension cord that hots up two power strips. One power strip is for lights. The other one for your phone, your computer, the toaster oven. I got windows. The whole top part that you can crank up. I kinda inverted a trailer jack so it will push up the top exposing windows. Why did I make a home out of a dumpster? As a challenge to myself. And as a challenge to see if I could make a home that could go undetected in the city. People would just walk by. It would kinda be in this grey zone of legal housing, illegal housing. And to see if you could take such a small space, and make something that is actually livable." 2. Wide, dumpster home3.
