Tiny House/Cabin/Small Shack Sketch/Design #17 and #18 in our "SIXTY-LONG" goal...

Blammo! Sorry- scanner was crappin' out yesterday, but we're back up and running. So as to catch up, here are TWO concepts/sketches today- #17 and #18 (of SIXTY)- Gadzooks! WHY THE HECK ARE WE DOING THIS? I explain below (if you haven't heard it 32.8 times already)....

This sketch here is for a certain someone with the last initial "H", who I might be doing a collaborative build with in the future. Actually, why the heck is this "secret"- lol- its Steven Harrell over at the ultra-cool (a site sure to get you fired from job for "browsing on the internet while you should have been working". I'll give you more details on this down the road as he and I figure some things out. This is merely one design idea so far that I've come up with, and the whole project would be well documented on video- naturally.

The "H-Hut"= design and sketch by Derek "Deek" Diedricksen- A micro-office/cabin
A modern beach cabana/tiny shack/house- a thumbnail sketch (which I'll elaborate on later) that I drew the other night in half a daze while watching some really bad tv....
As for the sketches, this is all a lead-up to the release of the NEW version of "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks"- out through The Lyons Press- which is already up and listed on for a mere $11.53. These sketches are NOT in that book, but serve as a "kick-in-the-ass" means for me to start banging out some new ideas for future books down the road.

  1. Sweet! Now I'll be able to work and watch the little birdies and squirrels play in my back yard. We should devise a plan to add a propane-powered kegerator.

  2. I'm excited about this book.... so much inspiration wrapped up in a lot of fun!
    I've pre-ordered from amazon... it'll be just what I need to get through the dark February Winter doldrums!


  3. Hey thanks so much Rae! I hope you enjoy it, and I appreciate the support!
