Derek’s Tiny House Tour

Derek contacted me yesterday, about his house that is on sale at craigslist (see previous post) and wanted me to share some more pictures with you.

Here is a review of some the features of Derek’s home:

The siding, trim, windows, and door were custom made from recycled Cedar. Inside, the floors are made from salvaged Douglas Fir and the paneling is salvaged from old-growth redwood fencing.

The home uses a Dickinson Marine fireplace for heat, has a stainless steel refrigerator. It includes a fold-down eating table for two, a walk-in closet and bathroom with toilet, sink and shower, and of course a sleeping loft.

The house is set up like an RV for plumbing and uses a RV hose connection for removal and includes a 50 AMP service connection. Derek is asking $34,000 or best reasonable offer and the house will be available in May.

If you would like to communicate with Derek about buying his home you can email him at draedeker@gmail.com.

Does it strike anyone else that this gentleman, who I am sure is a wonderful and loving person…

…has an AWFUL lot of butcher knives? Man, I live in 2300 sq ft with 4 kids and 3 animals, and don’t have that many knives.
😉 Just noticing….

Kate, I see four steak/dinner knives, a bread knife, a utility knife, a paring knife, and maybe a cheese knife. I don’t think that’s an excess of “butcher” knives… I don’t even see a meat cleaver. That looks about like what I have in the little kitchen I share with three other people–although it’s my housemate who owns the cleaver, and I also have an Asian-style vegetable knife which I don’t see in those photos. And I’m just a single guy who likes to cook.

I think it’s adorable. I live in an old Victorian that’s 1800 sf & your “tiny house” has more amenities than mine! Good job & good luck!

[…] La distribución de la casa no se corresponde exactamente con ninguna de las que se venden en Tumbleweed, seguro que Derek (el dueño actual) hizo su propia versión cuando la construyó. El precio es de $34,000, seguro que a muchos interesados en este tipo de casas les va a servir de referencia, o incluso comprarla. Los datos de contacto están en Tiny House Blog. […]
