NEW "How-to" Video- cutting easy, large circles in cabin walls (AND Tiny House Sketch #4 (of SIXTY!)

     First off, here's a new "snippet", unplanned, video I shot while procrastinating on a project. It deals with one easy trick for making your own circle-cutting jig, which can be used (as in this case) for cutting large circular openings (when nothing of the proper size to trace is available) for windows....(AND #4 of "SIXTY SHACK SKETCHES IN SIXTY DAYS (leading up the the release of my new version of "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks") is shown below as well. Its a tiny cabin/house ideal for rough terrain, hilly slopes, swamps, and marshes (in other words, the few places where land is still "affordable".)


     This video was taken while working on a very tiny A-frame cabin I've been having fun with- its only 7 feet long, and approximately 8 feet tall. It is also made almost entirely from recycled and free materials- at a total cost of $48 so far. Its designed to be a simple, single sleeping cabin- one easily carried or moved by two people, and that can fit in the bed of a pick-up truck for transport. I'd love to toss the thing high up in a tree at some point, but with winter about to hit here in New England, I don't see that happening.
Another sketch few have seen- its from one of the old versions of my mini-book "Quick Camps and Leg Cramps" (currently sold out, but we'll have more at some point). Concept and sketch by Derek "Deek" Diedricksen
 NOTE: The A-frame design is from one of the concepts in my book (below)- now out on Amazon.com for only $11.49. The book actually depicts THREE versions of A-frames (one INVERTED!).
