You don't have to be a designer to come up with something extraordinary. An ordinary fifth-grader independently created a real house for the homeless from scrap materials found in the garage. And from her savings, she added only $ 10.
It all started when fifth grader Callie Hilton (Callie hilton) received a creative task at school: to create a certain structure for which solar energy would be used. The girl built a real house on her own. When the video of her creation was posted on social networks, real designers became seriously interested in the idea, proposing to use the structure as housing for the homeless.
The house that Callie named hers Callie's Coop, consists of two functional areas. One of them is for sleeping, while the other contains a compost toilet and a small stove that is powered by the energy of the sun. There is a container for things under the mattress in the house. Lighting is provided by a small light bulb powered by a five-volt solar panel.
The tiny house has its own rainwater harvesting system. The roof is made at an angle, so the streams of water flow down the pipe, collecting in a special container. The girl demonstrated that the dwelling is not at all heavy. Its weight is approximately 12 kilograms.
To build her house, the girl used unnecessary materials that she found in the garage. In total, Callie spent only $ 10 on her project.
At least one other American is worried about the problem of homelessness on the streets, and he is trying to solve it in his own way. Gregory kloehn uses garbage and builds small houses from it for the homeless.
