Relaxshacks.com Tiny House/Shelter Workshop 2011- Photos part 2 (and a Tiny House Music Video!?)

Lots goin' on here at the "Relaxshacks.com Camp"- as usual....(AND NEW photos of an unseen build are below- its NOT finished though- so I'm unsure as to whether or not I should have posted anything yet...too late...).

"The Little Blue Bump"- a micro-escape/single sleeper cabin (to be placed in the shade, or if not, roofed in WHITE poly panels) that we built at the workshop. This IS NOT done- and the paint and windows are all additions I personally added after the workshop concluded (the photos below). Still a ways to go on this one. The attendees did a great job on this (based on a sketch I handed 'em). This will have a tiny front deck, solar lights, interior paint, flooring, and more- ultimately. I've added FOUR makeshift "windows" to it so far....
The rear-side- at the conclusion of the workshop day (14 hours of speakers, cabin tours, building, eating, and demonstrations). "The Simple Shell" is/was another name for this easy-to-build (and afford), plywood disaster relief, or homeless shelter.
Dustin's (my brother) group came up with this scrap material door, complete with a cut-wine-bottle knob, a "chinese star" door latch, and the use of some scrap aluminum screening I had from my radiator cover-building days. Some scrap wood was worked into the mix too.
A close-up of the rear window....which utilizes a sash/glass pane that we grabbed from a dump (while at the Cape Cod Eco-fest).
 Also, I just spent a very late/long night dropping some new vocals on a song my band wrote (Age Against The Machine/Anklelock) and recorded called
"Pullit"- this being a parody "how-to" instructional video/version (the lyrics ARE the directions) that we'll soon film a music video for- for Make Magazine- another exclusive edition of "Tiny Yellow House".

Me, on the mic, over at Media Boss Studio- I look kinda evil in this one....
 We recorded over at "Media Boss" Studios with Jim Foster from the bands Nullset/White- he also has produced albums and recordings for Godsmack, P.O.D., Gary Cherone (Extreme, Van Halen), and more....the guys REALLY good at what he does.

Can't wait to finish this one- ONCE we film "The Krunk Bunk" for Make....
