Christmas Tree Shaped Micro Hut/Tiny House

A little off subject (since we are looking at decorating tiny houses not designing them) however, I thought it fit in with the holidays. Derek (Deek) Diedricksen of did a quick rough sketch that literally took him six minutes to do (the holiday rush has left Deek with little sketch time). Titled a Christmas Tree shaped tiny house, cabin, fort, hut, or shack. It’s an idea Deek will elaborate on later with a better sketch, perhaps for a future book or something.

Great little sketch Deek and thanks for sharing it with us!

I think it is both ‘decorating a tiny house’ and ‘designing a tiny house’. I think it would make a cool Christmas tiny house. 🙂

Thanks all/Kent! Again, I’d LOVE to build something like this at some point- only question is WHERE- as its a total, out-of-place, novelty, out-of-season, house the rest of the year. Still, I’d love too…and I’ll have another, better, sketch of it at some point too- with some interior ideas.

My 8 year old granddaughter suggested you could have other shapes appropriate to various holidays you could pop over top of the tree end walls as needed. Pumpkins for Halloween, giant bunny or basket for Easter or whatever. They could all work with the A-frame tree house as the base, or the tree could just be a “coniferous tree house” the rest of the year with the Xmas decorative elements as add-ons. You could use clear glass for the windows and put coloured stuff in front for Xmas baubles as needed. You could use old coroplast election signs all painted up for the other shapes since they don’t need to be structural. She just got her own workbench and first set of real tools for Xmas so she is rarin’ to go on a project. Classic wooden toolbox first of course but a tiny house of her own is definitely in the works.

Now that’s a tree house!

You could go all the way and make it conical instead of A-frame. Then maybe scale it down and make a kid’s fort?

Then to deal with the seasonal issue, a cone could be converted into a rocket-ship for the rest of the year.

This is so cool and imaginative. Seems to me it would work great in those coastal areas that the houses are on stilts anyway. Of course, forest and other applications would work well, too.

Such creativity!
