A Roque Island, Maine Tiny Shack- AND #2 of "Sixty Shack Sketches in Sixty Days"

A friend of mine Derek Smith (or "Derek North" as a I call him (he lives north of me in NH)) sent me this snapshot from his recent travels in Maine. There's no interior to be seen (Derek didn't want to go to jail), but what a locale!

 And...."The Saga Continues" with another sketch, this being #2 of "SIXTY CABIN, TINY HOUSE, HOUSEBOAT, TREE HOUSE, and SHANTY SKETCHES IN SIXTY DAYS"- which I'm taking on, as a countdown (roughly) to the official release and shipping date of my new version of "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks" (thanks to those who have pre-ordered it on!).

"The Round Top Micro Cabin"- this one is NOT in "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks"- but eventually for another project.
  ABOVE: Here's another sketch- pretty simple and straight-forward, of a small 8' by 8' or 10' by 10' (or heck, whatever exponential size you want) cabin- one that could be easily prefabricated into smaller parts (able to be carried by two people to a remote site). This little vacation hut could also be outfitted with a one-pitch bump-out for a composting toilet/bathroom. The shower would be external, by means of a propane, "hot water on demand model", and any cooking could be done on an incorporated two-burner, rv propane range, mounted into a small counter/shelf (with a means to vent it).

$11.49- the NEW edition of my book (Lyons Press)- through and the link in the blog's column
