What a wonderful and creative idea! This man is an inspiration, but sadly, I'm sure the local govt. will find a way to "shut him down."

I love this. I have a difficult time driving by garbage and not going through it to see what is useful!

Wow that really is amazing. More power to him. Like Justin stated, God gave him a talent that he has used in a very positive way. Thanks Kathryn

This is such a beautiful and, sadly, much needed resource. It almost restores my faith in humanity (since I just read the article on genocide sites). Thank you.

It would possibly be acceptable in Richmond, but Oakland - yeah, they'll be coming for him. Hope I'm wrong. He's a hero.

I also thought they will figure out a way to sabotage him. we wouldn't want anyone doing something good unless it is sanctioned but the peers that be.
I think these are great. I'm not much of a people person but I do feel for the people who have no shelter in bad weather. they are portable and all different with a touch or whimsy. I low the people he five them to are grateful. What a creative and generous idea and thing to do.

That is wonderful. Unfortunately in my state they have cities that need structures of at least 500 sq ft of space to live in. There are companies building tiny houses for homeless but people don't want them next to larger homes for tax reasons, afraid they will lower their property values. I think they should just make little communities where the structures are relatively the same size. It is a great way to get the homeless off the street.

What a wonderful idea. I'm curious to know where they actually put these little buildings - I can't imagine they are allowed just anywhere.
