NEW Tiny House Builders TV SHOW debuts on HGTV w/Derek "Deek" Diedricksen

SPREAD THE WORD! If you dig the blog, my videos, or anything I've done in the past, I'd HUGELY APPRECIATE IT! This TV show, which I host, design for, and build for, is finally airing! We shot this quite a ways back, so we're psyched to see it air!



So…. as many of you might have noticed, my blog posts have become more and more infrequent as of recently. Why? Well, aside from bustin-butt and building things for clients, hosting several sold out workshops this year (Tennessee, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Massachusetts), AND getting a brand new factory-space for an art studio, and future design, art, and building classes, I've been working on THIS…..

And it finally will air- episode one- as a hidden/sneak episode on SUNDAY, DECEMBER 14th- 1pm!   HGTV doesn't even list it (and isn't even promoting it at all), but it exists and will air. You'll see!

A TON of work went into the first build you'll see- one that is part tree house, part tiny house, and part seasonal cabin, so I hope you'll enjoy it. Its an hour long program and one focused more so on building and design, and not the downsizing aspects of the scene.

We build from the ground up, off grid, and with a very small crew. No kit houses, no hidden building crew, and no half-built shells to start us off. Its grueling, but the end result is pretty darn fun, unique, and loaded with character.

Our crew: Aside from me….
Dustin Diedricksen (my brother, and co-workshop host)
Jim Shippey- Builder/tinkerer- who has been a teacher/presenter at many of my past workshops
"Creature"- Carpentry animal and always there with a smile (no, not really)
Johnny "Milwaukee" Lyman- Brew City salvage builder/designer (and former workshop attendee)
Melissa Teper/aka DJ Melissa- former radio co-host at WBCN Boston, and interior designer.
Phil Laplante- Salvage Pro and Barn Builder from NH

SO…. Sunday, December 14th- 1 pm- HGTV…. don't miss it!

By the way, we also will have a small one day tree house design and build workshop in my factory space in mid January 2015, and MAYBE, a larger hands-on class with a small backyard office build (in another big factory space) in that month as well. Keep checking www.relaxshacks.com for the updates, or if interested, leave a comment below and we'll get back to you when things are official!

  4. Awesome! Great show and fantastic lantern house. How much would it cost to build one just like it in upstate new york? Or, can we get plans?

  14. The concept of tree house is little different and one need to make a proper estimation prior. It would be interesting to watch the video on it. Though the construction work seems like one of the easiest profession but it is not so. The calculation should be errorless else it can make the whole building weak. Thanks Derek for sharing few of important tips. House bolting Los Angeles, CA.
