Massachusetts Man builds/designs 20' "ROBOT TREE HOUSE" in the woods of VT


"Its just something I always have wanted to do, and have messed with ink sketches of for years", reported builder/designer Derek "Deek" Diedricksen, when asked as to why he had chosen such outlandish, or even other-worldly, subject matter for his latest hands-on tree house workshop.

"Why the heck not? Its fun, different- I mean, I've NEVER even heard of anyone doing something like this- and the people who attended the three day workshop get the bragging rights to one hell of a 'look what I built over the weekend' story. While most stayed at home, playing video games, or watching tv re-runs with their Cheetos-stained hands, we were off-grid in the woods crafting an enormous tree house robot!"

The structure, standing at just OVER twenty feet in height, was completed in just three days, while setting aside time for talks and instructions on technique. Furthermore, Diedricksen claims that with the aid of salvaged and recycled materials, it was built for well under $1000.00.

"While this thing is just huge, we also intentionally built the trail approaching it to arrive at this monster from a downhill vantage, making it seem even larger!", added Diedricksen. "It also lights up at night because of the clear Tuftex polycarbonate panels that we sided its front with. We even went so far as to build in a lantern-hook for the center of its chest. At night, it'll appear as if this huge creature has a glowing power source in its wooden sternum- a 'robot heart'". That polycarbonate will also let us bring natural light into so small a space, while letting us achieve that nighttime glow that'll put this thing over the top!"

He went on to add, "While most of my tree houses are whimsical and usually identifiable by those clear Tuftex walls I employ, I'm thinking that this one has to take the cake in terms of its bizarreness, and I'm pretty happy with it for just that reason."

Diedricksen is now in the midst of an even larger tree house build for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Clinton, CT, and plans to tie in some of this current build with another hands-on workshop- one taking place Saturday, September 10th (2016), and limited to only twelve students. (

"We're trying to wrap up this build and design of mine, then one for a new show we're helming called "The Micromen" (with brother Dustin), and then I MIGHT, MIGHT take on one last tree house this season before winter hits. Its tough to say 'No', as I absolutely love working on 'em".

  3. Can you help me to get a free tiny house. I'm trying to end the world. This reality isn't really how things are. Things just aren't as they seem. People aren't really strangers for example. Here people are missing a part of themselves that is supposed "know you're okay like her. Um please help. Bye. It is me. I'm not supposed to do this: attack," Justin Guterding, a figure who is like taking some place to represent people can be okay, or something, he was being evil here, attacking me n things n still kind of does. He is kind of the devil but he's not supposed to really be like that, he's saying n it would seem.

    But please help me. I don't talk to you in my mind. You're someone who is supposed to help end the world, a self of Mark Wahlberg n people are all parts of each other as well. But please help.

    Here's my email:
    Please contact me, so you can help me get a free tiny house. It'll end the world. I'm trying to end the dollar. You're saying you can probably help in my mind.

    Also someone i know named Danny Hooley, you're a self of him. You would be something part of me as well. I'm going to contact that Yestermorrow Design School as well n ask them to help me.

    I do stay in ugly housing now. I wish to end the world, end the dollar, etc. So. Be w my soul mates, n i do wish people to be together.
