Homeless Man Builds Wooden House ‘On Wheels’ On Hollywood Boulevard

A homeless man’s place of residence has been drawing crowds in a popular neighborhood in Los Angeles. This residence is actually a tiny wooden house that was built by the resident himself on Hollywood Boulevard. Interestingly, this house has been the topic of several viewpoints. Some think that the house is quite ridiculous, while others seem to have no issue with the fact that the house has wheels attached to it at the bottom. FOX 11 asked the owner for an inside tour, but the man denied the request- claiming that he hadn’t been able to clean up inside.

Homeless Man Creates Mobile Home For Himself 

The homeless man had actually been staying in tents up to a certain point. However, he grew quite frustrated with the city maintenance crews who would be asking him to leave every couple of weeks. Q, the man, said, “I had an idea to build something on wheels so that we wouldn’t have to.” The pseudo-architect used pieces of wood that had been dumped away by construction sites to create his mobile home.

Of course, he also enlisted the help of a group of friends- who were more than willing. Q also mentioned that the city had offered him temporary housing- but he stated that he had denied this request since this was better than any temporary hotel room that he would find himself in.

Speaking to FOX 11, the homeless man said, “It kind of gives me empowerment. I don’t think that I’m bothering anyone here.” When asked about his state of living here, Q seemed quite happy. “I feel good. I feel like I’m, you know, kind of being an example for people that’s in my situation. Letting them know that just because you are living on the streets doesn’t mean that you have to just let go of everything.” Nevertheless, he will definitely have to move this mobile home before October 27th. Thankfully, it is quite fortunate that he has wheels that would ease the job.
