Utilizing four recycled fluted-plastic marketing campaign indicators from a latest election, a $20 secondhand bike, 6 pine boards ($1 at Dwelling Depot), screws, Duct tape and zip ties, he constructed his newest micro cellular shelter for less than $150.
Calling it a “micro Airstream bike camper”, it’s a 60-pound “dwelling away from dwelling”, full with butane range, bread-pan sink, counter, meals storage shelving, clothes-storage bins, LED lighting, mattress, home windows, pee jug, bubble insulation, stereo with MP3 participant, and a skylight made out of a 1 gallon plastic tub.
