The Dumpster Project

Posted in 2014 Weird Homes, 2015 Weird Homes, All Weird Homes

Talk about downsizing. What does home look like in a world of 10 billion people? How do we equip current and future generations with the tools they need for sustainable living practices? With a dumpster and a team of students and experts, the dumpster project has transformed from a barely habitable used garbage container to a sustainable house and interactive teaching lab.

Professor Jeff has put his experimental home on the Weird Homes Tour and invites you to come explore and learn more about the future of sustainable living in Austin, TX.

Note: The Dumpster is inside Huston–Tillotson University. Be sure to park outside the university and inquire at the gate house.

Vitals: 1 bedroom, no bathroom, 33 square feet!
