Here’s what I’ve been working on lately- a conglomeration of a design from my book “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks…” and from one in my new, in-the-works, micro-architecture book. This is a two-in-one: A mini homeless/emergency shelter (for just barely over $100 in materials- and ultra-easy to build!), designed to keep its occupant out of the rain and elements, AND as the head of what will soon be “The Tree-Rex Treehouse“- perched high in a maple in my backyard (with a tail, arms, etc- the works…). We’ll probably leave this around long enough for the attendees of my 2011 Relaxshacks.com Hands-On, Tiny Shelter/House Building Workshop (here in MA) to check out too (along with 3-4 other mini cabins on my property).
I additionally shot a mini video or two on this which I’ll post down the road. I’ve also been working on this in the snow- and I mean LOTS of snow, and negative-degree temperatures. I think its safe to say that I’m looking forward to warmer weather!
We also just shot a REALLY cool/fun video for “Tiny Yellow House” TV and hope, perhaps, to shoot one on “The Tree-Rex” as well- once it the weather’s a little nicer, naturally.
