Ethan’s Tiny House in Vermont


Ethan Waldman recently created a video tour with Derek Deidrichson’s Relax Shacks Youtube Channel.

Ethan Walman, author of the new book “Tiny House Decisions” gives us a look at his self-built and designed tiny house in Vermont. One with quite a few fun, and inventive, features: from a secret cat door, and a rolling track door for the bathroom, to a copper clad shower, and more. This tiny house has a surprisingly large kitchen, with a double sink as well.

Ethan’s book, called “Tiny House Decisions,” shows you how making choices for your tiny house does not have to be hard.

Whether you’re just starting to build your house or still dreaming about how you might make a tiny house happen, you:

  • Want a tiny house that fits you and your lifestyle, not someone else’s
  • Want to save time and money by doing it right the first time
  • Are overwhelmed by how many options you have to choose from, but you want to be informed about those choices

Vina’s Tiny House – the movie

Vina's House

With a desire to live lightly and simply, Vina Lustado set out to design and build a tiny house for herself. With the help of local artists and craftsmen, Vina completed a 140 square foot off-the-grid home. It has set a standard for style and environmental responsibility.

By enlisting local labor and support, Vina’s Tiny House embraces the community spirit in Ojai, California. Vina’s greatest hope is to create a Tiny House Community which addresses affordable housing and environmental impact. It’s a concept whose time has come!

Tiny House Giant Journey and Deek

Giant Journey

Hey, Deek from here.

This past weekend while teaching a tiny house design class (Tumbleweed) down in Philadelphia (and after having one of the larger slices of pizza I’ve EVER seen- Lorenzo’s) I was given a short tour of Guillaume and Jenna’s gorgeous tiny house on wheels- one making a trek around the entire US (and Maritime Canada) as we speak. Right now they’re somewhere in the vicinity of NYC, so keep an eye out! They’re pretty hard to miss if you’re on the highway.

Anyway, here’s a full video of their house. The place has so many inventive space saving solutions, and clever decor and design approaches, that you’re bound to glean some new ideas from it, regardless of your personal tastes.

Its 20′ long, 8′ 6″ wide, and 13′ 4″ tall. The so far have pulled it over 3000 miles… and they’ve just begun!

-Derek “Deek” Diedricksen

PS- October 25th-26th I’ll be having a very small/intimate Tiny House Building and Design workshop near Boston…. we’re limiting this one to 15 attendees, and that’s it! We’ll be doing LOTS of hands-on building
