Hey Cabin Builders n' Tuftex Fans- WIN $200 from Lowes, and Deek's Autographed Book!

Want to win $50 from Lowes AND a signed copy of "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks"? Well, get that camera out!

ABOVE- Clear Tuftex Polycarbonate Roofing in one of Deek's Cabins "The Gypsy Junker"
STARTING TODAY, we're looking for your photo submissions (selfie-style- no cheaters please!), of cabin projects, or heck, any funky projects where you've utilized Tuftex polycarbonate roofing. US only, sorry.... we will have something for the rest of you down the road....

The company contacted me after having seen how many times I've used the stuff in my designs over the years, and kindly has donated FOUR $50 Lowes Gift Certificates, AND will send out a copy of my book ("Humble Homes, Simple Shacks"), signed, to the top four photo submissions- where Dustin and I will take into consideration many factors, including creativity of use, to pick out winners.

Tuftex roof/wall in Deek's Vermont Reading Room/Guest Shack "The Rock Bottom"- built for only $300! 

Also, any REALLY cool submissions just may later be featured on this blog, OR, with your permission, could even wind up featured in my NEW book.... one I'm working on right now. 

A Tuftex WALL in Deek's cabin design "The Cub"- which we'll eventually have plans for....

Deadline for your submissions is December 18th- Simply post your photos in the proper thread on our Facebook page, and we'll announce the winner down the road.
