Tiny Homes for the Homeless Made of Salvaged and Recycled Materials
To build these tiny homes, Gregory uses anything that can somehow become part of a home, including a discarded washing machine front, which is used as a window, as well as bed frames, sofa frames, and even refrigerator shelves. The main building blocks he uses to build these homes are pallets, plywood, OSB, packing crates and more. The pellets are normally used to build the basic frame and base, though he also uses more creative building blocks such as car consoles. When searching for building materials, Gregory looks for anything that consists of real wood, tempered glass and sturdy frames. He then buys the nails, screws, glue, paint brushes and saw blades needed to turn the refuse into homes. When a home is completed, he pushes it into the street, takes a few photos and then gives it away.
