The "GottaGiddaWay" Micro-Homeless Shelter/Cabin Sprouts Legs....(a UFO/Roswell meets a micro-home?)

 The "GottaGiddaWay" Micro Cabin- aka "The $100 Homeless Hut" (as it was dubbed in The NY Times). I've recently added a coffin-like tiny leg chamber, allowing even very tall homeless occupants to stretch out- and many naps of my own can attest to the fact that this thing is pretty comfortable, as far as tiny, temporary shelter goes.
We have a FULL real-deal episode of "Tiny Yellow House TV" coming soon on this one....for Make Magazine too- who just offered me a multi-episode contract with them. Ain't complainin' and we already have some really funky projects planned that Steve Sherrick of Modern Vintage Productions will be shooting for/with me (the guy's the best and was just shooting some pilots for ABC TV, and some test footage for the upcoming Kevin James flick "Zookeeper".

Anyway, The "GottaGiddaWay" will be on the road/on display fact....

SATURDAY, MAY 21st- come check us out at the CAPE COD ECO-FEST- at the Wellfleet, MA Transfer Station- from 10 am to 2 pm! Should be a blast- many cool recycling/eco-based exhibits- great for kids! I'll have some other self-built things on display, and copies of my book to check out as well. 

Come by and say hello! Its also for sale ($1200.00- and the proceeds will simply be channeled into my beer drinking habit! No, into another shoot or two for "Tiny Yellow House" in which the new buyer will get a nice thank you, or even a cameo for helping us.

And for any who missed the latest mini-video of mine on a Boston-area Gypsy Wagon/Tiny House/Vardo- scroll down below to the next most recent post....
