LOS ANGELES — One California man has set out to provide shelters for the homeless, one Porta-Potty at a time.

T.K. Devine wants to get homeless people off the streets by converting portable toilets into tiny homes called Porta-Homes.

Devine said he can squeeze a lot into a portable toilet including a foldable bed, kitchenette and bathroom. Devine even has plans to add a garden and solar panels on the roof.

"I can fit a 6-foot, 1-inch frame, with my shoes off like my mama taught me, comfortably on the bed. And yeah, it's as big as a twin bed," Devine said.

Devine plans to haul his new home on a trailer and stay at various locations around LA.

Maybe this Porta-Potty extreme makeover will flush out the homeless problem.
