Chez Sven in Wellfleet, MA- small/tiny house heaven on Cape Cod....

Well, again, this Sat's (May 21st) the 3rd annual Cape Cod Eco-Fest- 10am to 2pm in Wellfleet, MA (their town transfer center)- a FREE event, where I'll be bringing my cabin "The GottaGiddaWay"- a micro-homeless shelter/hut and/or weekend cabin for one. Its going to be alot of fun, Wellfleet's a great town, and I'm sure we'll meet some great people...

Anyway- when I was originally invited to come out and talk to people about building and construction with free and recycled materials, I was told I'd also be getting a place to stay. Well, who would have though it would have been so cool a tiny house setting as this one....its a bed and breakfast (by two likeminded recyclers, and community activists) by the name of CHEZ SVEN (http://www.chezsven.com/)- and I can't wait to check the place out! I'll certainly be taking lots of photos- especially of the space saving, 1700s-style steep staircase this particular house has.

Sandy, who is one of the duo behind Chez Sven also runs a very cool eco/green blog herself- check her out at http://www.chezsven.blogspot.com/

Hope to see some of you there....you def. won't be able to miss us, and man oh man will be be getting some looks on the highway!

Happy 30th to my brother, Dustin "Dr. Demolition" Diedricksen too! Dustin came out on his birthday, of all days, to help me lift this cabin onto my trailer (yes, the cabin is so small that two people can lift it).

  1. Deek - MA is a bit too far away for me to come. Love your ideas, fotos, artwork, and things. Keep up the creativity!

  2. Hey Diedricksens! Saw the article about Deek in the Shoreline Times- if you have a copy, flip to the back side from your article and Dustin will see a familiar face ;) I was just watching your web show on YouTube with my husband and we REALLY enjoyed it! I love how so many "Madison kids" have set out to make big changes in the world rather than carrying on the Madison stereotype :P
