In this episode, Derek Deek Diedricksen gives us an early look at a recycled material tiny office pod/cabin that he’s been working on for a NYU professor. This little shelter, which can sleep two, or would make for a great playhouse for kids, will later be rolled (its on wheels) down to a pond-side locale in New Jersey, once completed and shipped out from its Boston-area build site. The structure uses a huge amount of recycled wood, plywood, windows, and even hardware, all found on the side of the road, or being thrown away at build site (in dumpsters).
