I recently read on this webpage that a guy in NYC made a dumpster into a small house. Granted he bought it brand new (which means it had never been used) and turned it into a tiny house complete with electric and water.
Here's the link to the story if you'd like to :

That got me thinking, what other objects or items have you heard or read about that people have turned into homes or houses? Post pics if you can, I'd love to see what some of you guys find!
