Calling all “hipster types!” The home of your Instagram dreams is awaiting you in a lot in Williamsburg. Spotted by redditors early this morning on Craigslist, the apartment is being described as an “art deco hipster retro mini apt from a converted dumpster is green friendly and sustainable. .and trendy…1200 month. Or 200 per night.” Because why commit to a whole month?
The tricked-out trash can is actually the very cool creation of builder, designer and artist Gregory Kloehn, who was profiled by HGTV for their “You Live in What?” series back in 2013. Klohen retrofitted the commercial dumpster—which he paid $2,000 for—to include a sink, stove, toilet and sleeping area inside, and on the outside he added a shower, barbecue grill, mini bar, a deck and a retractable roof with windows. The whole thing took him six months to complete.
Kloehn is said to only spend his summers in the dumpster, and the rest of the time he’s a West Coast resident in what we assume to be a real (legal) dwelling. So, with winter just around the corner, why shouldn’t he collect on the rental cash of this prime neighborhood, right? Well, it’s not totally clear if the home is being rented out by Kloehn himself, or if it’s a spoof listing. There was only this one shoddy image featured and we didn’t get a reply from the listing holder for comment:
But if you want to find out for yourself, here’s the Craigslist post.
