Deek’s $300 Vermont A-Frame Cabin (Tiny House Workshop)- w/WOOD TURTLE sighting



Derek Deek Diedricksen’s book, “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks”, will soon have a follow-up, or sorts, which will feature various cabins and shelters that he has designed and built for people- perhaps this one will be included, WHEN DONE. This cabin was built at his “Tiny House Summer Camp” workshop (one or two cabins) in 2012, and for a budget of $300, most of which was the roofing- metal and tuftex (but well worth it!). This cabin will be shown in a follow-up video at some point once completed.
