Classy n' Stained-"Glassy"- a reclaimed-materials, designer, tiny dwelling (oxymoronic!?)

       Check out this gorgeous shot of a treehouse or "Trabin" (tree-cabin, there I go makin' up words again!) in the woods, adorned with quite a bit of stained glass. Even used, stained glass is damn expensive, so if you ever come across any for FREE, DO NOT pass it up.
       Now THIS place is my idea of a cool, cozy, and unique dwelling, or tiny-cabin, getaway!

The treehouse was built in three days, with a team of carpenters, under the lead of set designer and art director James Hatt, for a magazine spread at the time.

Also, I'll post a link tomorrow, but my book was in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL (crazy!) just yesterday....the new edition of "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks" seems to be doin' pretty well- thanks all! You can order it here below, if interested....$11.29- NEW (with a free shipping option)    -Derek "Deek" Diedricksen


  1. This treehouse is so cool! I love the mis-matched colors and patterns. The stained glass looks awesome and I love what it does for the light inside that already colorful space...
    My best friend makes stained glass for a living and I'm trying to convince him to make a neat window for my tiny house on wheels (made out of an old camper)...
    Thanks for sharing!!


  2. I agree, there are a lot of creative builders out there.
