Derek “Deek” Diedricksen who I have featured here several times with his excellent Tiny Yellow House movies and his humorous informative book called Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts (And Whatever The Heck Else We Could Squeeze In Here!) shared with me some pictures that may be featured in an upcoming book by Mimi Zeiger who wrote and published Tiny Houses.

I really like Deek’s simplistic construction as it has a beauty all it’s own. Deek is also big into recycling materials and has done so throughout his cabin. Thanks Deek for sharing these photos with us. I look forward to your Tiny Yellow House video and will share it when it comes out.

    This is ‘the good life’–a simple retreat, a campfire with friends. Perfect.

    Oh wow… I want to live there. Love it! Can’t wait to see more of his designs!

  3. Tim says:

    Very cool Deek, the loft looks like a great place to chill out and relax in peace!

  4. Deek, your Vermont Cabin is purely AWESOME. I love it, man. Those big windows in the loft are fantastic. Makes for a perfect spot to chill out and read. Talk to you all later. ~ Alex

    thanks all!
    We have an already filmed (but awaiting editing) episode on this cabin for “Tiny Yellow House” TV- it just comes down to time and funding/backers, etc…which can be hard to come by. The episode will also show an underground house in VT, a very picturesque covered bridge we shot at, and then some….


    And thanks Kent!

    It looks like the bottom rung of the ladder doubles as a chair for the fold-up table on the wall? Love it!

  7. Deek says:

    good eye dorothy…
    yeah= the bottom step does double as the table’s seat….


    This Sunday, not sure what time yet, my interview on NPR (yackin’ about this cabin, etc) will be airing….

    If you could make a house with curves that actually are like the wide angle camera lens image, that would really be interesting!

  9. deek says:

    What wide angle lens? lol


  10. Deek, nice pad. You embody ‘chillaxing’ in the picture.

    Maybe a name variant: Chillax Shillacks?

    Out here we are ‘soakin’ in the NorthWet…
