An Oakland artist is ingeniously battling homelessness in Oakland, California: he builds small houses out of materials he can find in the streets, with each edifice costing around forty bucks.

The tiny homes are made of pallets, bed boards, washing machine doors, and other bizarre objects that catch Greg Kloehn’s attention. Mr Kloehn first noticed that homeless people built shelters from whatever they find in the street, and he wanted to make a house like this.

He jokes that he constructs "illegal homes out of illegal garbage." The cost of one house is “$30 to $40,” Kloehn told RT.

Quality of Life Laws
you don't have the dough , ya gotta move on Joe .

Law passed during the influx of out of staters during the depression

California Highway Patrol set up road blocks at the state line , if each person had
less then $50 on them , they were turned back and could not enter
the state .

I'm for Cob houses being built in empty lots for them .
