Here’s a great budget-minded (and portable, quick, easy to install) idea… a YURT that’s a tree house! This one is a 12′ diameter model from a company called Yurts Of America…. who have a some pretty drool worthy photos over at www.YurtsOfAmerica.com.” – Deek Read and see more at Relaxshacks.com…

Chris’ home was originally built from “Bodega” plans from the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, but he then tweaked the plans to fit his needs and style a little, and in some cases, to conform to a few more local codes. In the end run, it worked out great, and his place is legit and legal […]

This 227 Square Foot Modern House, located in Western Massachusetts was something I had a chance to visit just the other weekend, and was it ever filled with some great design ideas! I have a TON of photos coming soon, AND a video tour (two actually), but wanted to share with you this simple tiny […]

Dustin and I recently embarked on a photo and video road trip through New England. Our VERY FIRST stop, up in South Londonderry, VT was Domenic Mangano’s “Jamaica Cottage Shop”, and man oh man, was his spread impressive- something like 20+ sheds, cottages, cabins, and more.” – Derek “Deek” Diedricksen Read and see more at […]

 I shot this tour a ways back, and a few others, for HGTV’s series “Extreme Small Spaces”. While some of the places we toured have been featured, as video walk throughs before, I hadn’t seen this one covered, well, until we launched this video a ways back. Tim Seggerman’s the idea-guy behind this remodel, and […]

This wall was ENTIRELY made from free, found, and salvaged material. EVEN the cedar 2by4 studs on the back wall were rescued from a mill that was going to toss them. The idea with our “Operation: Use It Up!” side mission was to take everyday scraps and junk, and see what could be made with […]

A ways back, well, quite a ways back now, I was sent out to San Francisco as a guest speaker for a really fun Tumbleweed Tiny House Company workshop, where I later had the chance to take a side trip to the Sonoma County Fair (Huge!) with a few of the TW Crew- Meg Stephens, […]

…Here’s a sneak peak on the tree house I just built for a client- we shot a full video on this as well- showing how I used a ton of recycled and free materials in the build…. This is another micro structure that will be featured in the wild array of tiny houses, cabins, tree […]

Here’s a final update on photos I took (with my new Panasonic Lumix DMC G6- which I LOVE!) of my little cabin in Vermont- one that was framed as part of 2012’s “Tiny House Summer Camp” up in the woods of the Northeast Kingdom. We will have another workshop like this, off grid, in the […]

First off, having left Boulder, Colorado a mere two days before the flooding and devastation began, its been sad to hear of how bad things have been out there and I hope all are well and safe in the wake of all the mayhem that region has been dealing with. Just the other weekend I […]

From this angle my little cabin in the woods DOES somewhat resemble a mushroom, with its top heavy, large-overhang roof n’ all …and you thought this post had something to do with drugs!? tisk, tisk.” – Deek

I just love this simple shot I took of the interior of my tiny, tiny, tiny house on wheels- well, more like a camper or cabin for now- “The Cub”. It will have another bed/bench/storage combo set-up down below soon, a small bathroom/toilet area on the tongue of the trailer, and a few other add-ons, […]
