A nice Tumbleweed EPU recently completed in Vermont.
“This month my tiny house was completed after a few years of preparation and three months of building. Josh Wengard, a terrific carpenter of Re-Design Construction in Londenderry, Vermont did most everything. I sealed the cedar siding, sanded the maple kitchen counter and generally got in the way. The house was built using the Epu plans from the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, though some modifications were made. The final cost was just under $32,000 for building.”
Tiny houses are getting some press coverage on Vermont Public Radio.
“Derek Diedricksen is a 35 year-old tiny house evangelist who lives outside of Boston. On a recent weekend in July about 20 people from around the country gathered on his property for Tiny House Summer Camp, a four-day intensive course on how to build a house of your own.”
Deek has begun posting photos and news of the summer camp workshop he hosted in Vermont. Looks like they all had a very productive time.
“Well, since I’m somewhat caught up on rest from five days in the backwoods of Vermont, and with four of those days being our Relaxshacks.com “Tiny House Summer Camp”, I thought I’d share some photos with you.”
Here’s a very nice little screened in cabin in Vermont called the FernHouse, created by Bob Swinburne, an architect in Brattleboro, Vermont. It’s nicknamed FernHouse because it looks like is floats on a sea of ferns during the summer months.
I was recently contacted by a fellow named Derek Alexander Diedricksen who is in the process of writing a book called, “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts, and Anything Else We Could Squeeze in Here.” It turns out that Derek is quite a scavenger-builder himself.
