Derek “Deek” Diedricksen shows us a tree house he built and designed for a Boston area Police officer’s family in late 2015. This tree house was a very simple, ultra-budget build using some of the materials salvaged from the tree house/fort that was previously on the site, but destroyed in a large storm when a tree fell directly on the previous structure.
Deek also hosts hands-on tiny house and tree house building workshops…. check http://www.relaxshacks.com or updates….

Steven Harrell of www.TinyHouseListings.com, for whom this cabin was built, also talk about the future intentions of this structure.
This affordable, versatile little place could be used as a greenhouse, a backyard writer’s retreat, an art studio, or even a simple vacation cabin. All said and done, it was built for under $1000 in materials.

In this short clip (shot at the Tiny House Festival in St. Augustine Florida) Derek “Deek” Diedricksen talks to “Barb” about her DIY camper/ tiny house on wheels- one so small and light that it can be pulled by a Kia! This little dwelling was made, in great part, from salvage, and reused leftovers from Barb’s garage…. coffee table parts, old windows, and whatever she could scrounge up to stay within her meager budget. Barb also talks about a tiny house community, or park, in Florida, that she is involved with.
