    I think it is a pretty cool idea for someone who needs something and wants to use upcycled materials like a trash dumpster. Not sure how good it would be for long term living or in a an area where there is a lot of snow because a person would need to be an outside person. The space is really, really small. I like the concept and idea of it. I just wonder about the cost as well.

    What will they think of next!? Living in a bin (trash can)! I love how innovative some people are. This is fantastic.

    I’d weld-up the slots for the garbage truck lifting equipment, lest some sleepy garbage man decides your house needs emptying at 5am.

    It’s funny, the concept… But sadly probably not so long many of us will need of such a thing like this, because the world, again, steps toward a world of rich and poor. It’s a tragicomedy that i don’t want to our children…

    A place for the refugees and imigrants.

    How about a place for homeless. Here in Oregon we have a big problem. There have been business people looking at warehouse space to house homeless. I could see dumpster and shipping containers make a viable housing in this warehouse space.
