His name is Gregory Kloehn, an artist in Oakland, California who is building micro houses for homeless people in his area.
In the past I’ve featured one of Kloehn’s earlier creations which was a micro house he built out of a garbage container.
Instead of trying to create art so that rich people will buy it from him now he’s decided to build tiny homes directly for those who need them most.
He dumpster dives until he has enough materials to build a one room shelter for a homeless person.

Micro Houses for the Homeless
Every Single One is Unique
And They Each Represent Home to a Formerly Homeless Person
The Pitched Roofs Keep Everything Inside Dry
Even Windows Are Made out of Recycled Materials
Isn’t it amazing how this man is using trash to improve people’s lives? Every town could use a guy like this to create micro housing for the homeless in that area.
Next Gregory is out to teach people how to build these magnificent micro homes so that they too can help other homeless people.
