Kara Reed, of Oklahoma, builds the altered-recommendation version of Derek “Deek” Diedricksen’s A-Frame/Tiny House- a small cabin she lives in- complete with a small storage loft, a front deck, an 11′ high cathedral ceiling with lots of natural light, and many built-in shelves and features. This tiny house (the base model, with a flip-up roof) can be built for under $1200. Kara’s version is insulated, wired for electricity, and more.
In this episode/tour, (part one of two), Derek “Deek” Diedricksen (HGTV and DIY Network) from www.relaxshacks.com, meets up with Jenna and Guillaume from www.tinyhousegiantjourney.com to check out their newly finished tiny home/house on wheels- one based off a Tumbleweed Cypress model, but with many tweaks, changes, built-ins, and space saving inventions of their own added in. The two are now on the road around the US, chronicling their journey in a tiny house , through videos, interviews, and journal entries, which you can check out on their blog. In their home, you’ll find tables that double as photo frames and chalkboards, tansu storage steps that double as shelving (and made from salvaged furniture, barrels, and crates), and one of the more spacious tiny house lofts out there. The tour is long, but there’s A LOT to their home, and its worth checking out!

In this little clip, Derek and Dustin Diedricksen (www.relaxshacks.com) give a tour of a long abandoned log cabin, hand-built by teenagers, in the woods of Connecticut- outside Norwich. This log cabin hasn’t been used since the 90s, but still has a Yotul wood stove within and a few remnants of its “glory days”. Built by Derek and Dustin’s cousins Neil and Kurt Malek (and their friends), this blog clip was shot to preserve the memory of a cabin in the woods that won’t be around forever. The construction is simple, and self-invented in most cases, but clever as well- especially for them having built it at so early an age.
