I can’t stop thinking about dumpsters.

90Look, you know this thing with us building a container house is getting kind of hot and heavy when I’m obsessively looking at pictures of people’s dumpster pools. At the moment, I’m romancing the idea of buying a disgusting fixer and then awesomeizing it with some sweet custom shipping containers and creating us a little slice of hillside DIY heaven rather than starting from scratch and going broke on the foundation…a perilous road we came very close to walking once before. Ahhh…cockroaches and water damage and rot and all that good stuff.

90-4Designer Stefan Beese decided to take dumpster diving to a whole new level when he took a used well…dumpster and turned it into a pretty sweet semi-inground swimming pool on a budget. He’s basically my idol right now.

90-1After lining his pool with a custom pool liner and taking care of some other necessary modifications, Stefan built a gorgeous deck around his new creation.

90-2The pump fits cleanly inside the structure, and voila! Dumpster Dive your summer away!
