Oakland artist Gregory Kloehn came up with a great idea to put his practical DIY skills to extremely good use. He finds unwanted trash items and turns them into tiny portable homes for the homeless.

He looks for all kinds of items that could be used to construct a shelter, which could be anything from timber slats to an old washing machine door.
Each home is only around the size of a sofa and is set on casters, so it can be moved around when necessary.
These houses aren’t much, but each means a roof over the head of one homeless person who otherwise might be sleeping out in the elements with no protection, sense of privacy, or anything to call a home.
