Green Steel Container With Biscuits Lot

When homeless student Tom Gendron came up with the idea to build himself a tiny home in a biscuit tin, he never imagined it would be anything more than a temporary fix. But three years later, the 26-year-old is still living in his self-made abode and has even managed to turn it into a comfortable and cosy space.

Tom, who is studying for a degree in social work, came up with the idea to build himself a tiny home in a biscuit tin after he found himself homeless and sleeping rough on the streets of London. With no money and no prospects, Tom decided to take matters into his own hands and build himself a shelter out of whatever materials he could find.

The biscuit tin home cost Tom just £10 to build and is just 0.25 metres squared. It is made out of recycled materials, including an old door, some insulation and some second-hand windows. Tom has managed to furnish his home with a bed, a table and a few basic essentials, and even has a small kitchen area where he can cook his meals.

Despite the cramped conditions, Tom says he feels safe and secure in his biscuit tin home and has even managed to make it a comfortable space. He has decorated the inside with some personal belongings and has even managed to get a TV and a small fridge.

Tom’s story has captured the hearts of people across the world, who have been amazed by his resourcefulness and determination. His story is a reminder that no one should give up on their dreams, no matter how difficult their circumstances may be.
