America Recycles Day: See Little Homes For The Homeless

One person's trash is another's "Home Sweet Home." Oakland artist Gregory Kloehn makes pint sized homes on wheels from discarded materials he finds on the street. Inspired by the small home environmental movement, Kloehn started making his homeless architecture of fully functioning houses out of shipping containers, dumpsters and discarded street trash. Greg gives his handmade homes away to the needy and thus far has built 10 unique living environments. They may be small, but they have a big impact on the lives of the people he helps. He's a one man affordable housing project.
