We shot this many weeks back (alongside a few other builds and tours), and are happy to finally have this one up and running. All you vardo, vw bus, portable dwelling, and gypsy wagon fans should dig this. Thanks to Sage for opening his home to us. Unfortunately, he is currently being hassled by the city and its building inspectors- so I hope things work out for him.

A "Floating ‘I’ (Eye)" micro-cabin or sleep pod (tiny housing takes the the trees"

Possibly a shelter for short weekending trips? A kid’s fort? An ultra tiny micro home-office for those not so claustrophobic? An affordable hut for the homeless? Something to hide your collection of stale waffles in? (Just making sure you’re paying attention!)

“The Floating “I”‘- for lack of a better name currently. A late night cabin sketch/concept by Derek “Deek” Diedricksen

Whatever its eventual use, who the heck knows?

I was just bangin’ out ideas the other night, when all I could find in immediate reach were a few busted up crayons….above is one of many sketches/ideas I was throwing around.

Perhaps I’ll build one of these someday….although “satisfaction is the death of desire”- as the old saying goes…not that it really applies too fittingly in this case (it merely makes for a blog post that is 38 words longer than it needed to be!). 39! ha! Damn, 42…..

This one WON’T be in my new book by the way- its a pretty cruddy sketch (aka a “slop sketch” as I call ’em)- Book’s out on pre-order now though- only $11.53! Which means I make like $0.13 by the time royalties filter down to me! After the sale of 4000 copies or so, I’ll have enough money for that dream vacation in Newark, NJ! No, its not THAT bad (not good either)- I’m just trying to get the word, ideas, and recycling mindset out there! So I DO HUGELY appreciate your support if you pre-order a copy and help the cause. Thanks!
