A tiny house door made from salvaged TSUNAMI BOAT PIECES???

Check out the video below- this guy's a trip, and when I saw his art, the first thing I thought was, "What an AMAZING tiny house or cabin door these things would make!".

I stumbled into this guy- Kenny "The Tin Man" Hoff- at the North Carolina Home and Garden Show put on by Southern Shows this past weekend. Myself and Lloyd Kahn (Publisher, Builder, Jack of Many Trades) were flown out to Charlotte as stage speakers for the weekend, and this show was just great- good people, fun exhibits, and a friendly staff! In the coming days I'm going to post some photos, and maybe a video or two that I shot out there.

We also began building the prototype for a new cabin (future plan set to come) for a cabin design of mine called "The Dart"- it can be built for about $2000, uses much stock length lumber, and is simple and easy to build. Aside from co-presenting on the home-design stage, we gave a live building demo throughout the three day show- a "Deek Diedricksen and Lloyd Kahn" team-up of sorts….

Anyway, this salvaged material usage/layering technique is similar to something we'll employ at the upcoming Hands-On Tiny House Building Workshop near Memphis, TN- April 11-13th, 2014 in one of the cabins we'll all collectively be building! If interested, this one's filling up FAST!
