Hob-Nobbin from Hobbitat Spaces

A day in the life of our friend Colin. From a hob to the great outdoors of Garrett County and back. Not too shabby. This 425 square foot cabin is eco friendly, featuring recycled heart pine from the Carnegie Railroad shed. See different models and looks at our website hobbitatspaces.com. Or go see 13 different Hobs in person at Blue Moon Rising in McHenry, Maryland. A special thanks to everyone at Blue Moon Rising, Moon Shadow Cafe, and Colin Ware Hob-Nobbin from Hobbitat Spaces on Vimeo. interior of cabin

Big Sky Retreat Yurt

yurt and daisies

Scott Evans shared his Big Sky Retreat in a post on the Tiny House Blog a year or so ago. His 17 year old son Red Evans recently filmed an excellent video on the retreat that I wanted to share with you.

The yurt building is mainly constructed out of scrap scaffold boards, pallets and timber from the builders merchants. It cost around £10,000 (about $15,979) not including labour time. Please visit the previous post here for more of the story. Also visit Canopy and Stars website and if you are on Facebook you can follow their page here.

King Courteen LIVE at Tiny House Festival in Memphis

This past weekend at Derek “Deek” Diedricksen’s “Relaxshacks.com Tiny House Building and Design Workshop” in Memphis, TN (at the Joe Everson compound of www.TennesseeTinyHomes.com), we worked on FOUR builds: a tiny house, a tiny office cabin, a tree house (future airbnb.com listing), and another full out tiny home from tinyhappyhomes.com. It was the biggest, full-out, hands-on tiny house building workshop that’s ever taken place and a great experience for all.

Beyond that, at this sold out three day camp-out event (65 people in all, including guest speakers such as Steven Harrell, Will Yount, FW Willis, and so many more) we had a side trip to Beale Street, AND some live music on site.

Here is performance by Milwaukee’s King Courteen during one of our breaks from building. This 22 year old is an unbelievable talent, and we’d love to see an undiscovered, independent, very creative, artist do well, so please pass this video on…you never know…our scene could launch this kid.

And be sure to wait for the chorus, even if this style music isn’t your thing…

Also, Deek and Dustin’s next Tiny House and Tree House Workshop will most likely be in August- “Tiny House Summer Camp 2″, which will double one night as a mini, off-grid, folk fest- perhaps with a repeat appearance from King Courteen…

The “Lit by Lanterns Folk Fest” is the name we’re running with…
