If you’re broke and squatting in an abandoned warehouse, you might as well make the best of it. Such is the mindset behind James Westwater’s “sustainable organic greenery domicile” better known as the Homeless Chateau. It has a small cooking and toilet area (gross), storage and a place to sleep – the essentials of any home. The caveat is that it’s essentially a big wooden crate with no windows. but there is a translucent polyurethane end to let in natural light.
Want to make your own Chateau? Easy:
Homeless Chateau is fabricated from standard 4 x 8 and 4 x 4-foot sheets of plywood, OSB and construction signs, and can be knocked down, transported flat, and erected quickly and easily with just a screwdriver. Once assembled, the structure can be moved around the host space on its casters and then set in place with a temporary foundation–two bricks under the front. Homeless Chateaux can be easily reconfigured and combined to make dual-occupancy and eight-foot-tall structures.
