"SPACE SAVERS" Small house living article in South Shore Living Magazine (Massachusetts)- out now,,,,

Update: Out Now (and perhaps soon online- its a really fun, photo-laden, 4 page spread)....Thanks to Lisa Johnson too! Check out her cool blog at

From Lisa's Blog...
Ever since I started reading blogs about simple living and the tiny house movement, I've been interested in learning more. It seemed like a fun topic to write about, so I proposed an article.

Long story short, I interviewed the Diedricksen brothers for the article Space Savers in the September issue of South Shore Living Magazine.

Derek aka "Deek" writes the blog, does Tiny Yellow House videos and his book Humble Homes, Simple Shacks is available for pre-order on Amazon.

It was great meeting them, learning how they came to embrace the idea of simple living in small houses, and seeing Dawn and Dustin's Scituate house that they all collaborated on.

The article might be available online eventually, but the September issue isn't on the website yet. If you live in Massachusetts, you can buy South Shore Living Magazine at CVS, Stop & Shop, and Hannaford.

It's a wonderful magazine and the September issue focuses on small spaces with big personality. If this interests you, I hope you go and pick up a copy!

     For those in the area who might be further interested, I'll be speaking at Walden Woods on October 15th (11am I believe- free (with park admission (walk-ins are free)- alongside Sage- the Boston Gypsy Wagon Dweller/Builder AND John Hanson Mitchell- author of a VERY cool book I just read "Living At The Edge of Time"- criminally, out of print....he is the author of several other books as well. THREE speakers- all on tiny housing, small living, and in the path of H.D. Thoreau's work. I'll relist this later on, where it won't be so missed/buried, and give additional details.
   I might be speaking on tiny houses the very next day in NYC too- details to follow....
