First, THANK YOU to all who continually add so much cool input, ideas, and the sharing of projects and designs on our tiny housing facebook group/chat room! If you’d like to join- CLICK HERE.

The U.B. 30 Treehouse- built and designed by Derek “Deek” Diedricksen- and yes, the “eye-windows” have lanterns in them.

       Deep in the woods of northern Vermont, an occasional hunter is sure to stumble across THIS.

“Jethro, you’s never gonna believe what’s been goin’ on down at the Diedricksen camp! They must be holding some sorta voodoo-pagan rituals in a newfangled, crazy temple in the trees they built down by the ole swamp!

     You might have seen the video on this little 1-day treehouse/tree-sleeper I built for my brother for his 30th birthday (I added it below). “The U.B. 30” sleeps two, is supported by four trees, and cost very little to build- approximately $250.00. My brother, Dustin, and his wife (Dawn), have now used this little shelter several times (with their 9 month old as well) when they’ve been up at my Vermont camp.
    Its basically another variation on “The Little Blue Bump” (video coming soon), and “The GottaGiddaWay” disaster relief/vacation camp shelters.
    This series of additional photos was taken for my new book (out in February), and for use in an additional photo-based book I’m also sloooowly working on. Its not so much a tiny house, or a “real” house for that matter, but if built on a larger scale, it just could work. Why not? This version is 8 feet long by 5′ 6″ inside, and has a “ceiling” height of 4 feet.

Only $11.53- the NEW edition of my book- order through the left hand column of this blog

I like the detailing of the metal around the foundation – bling + critter resistance. Great work, and the “face” is a hoot.

“bling”- lol. Yeah, we've had MAJOR problems with porcupines eating our wood, cabins, and just about anything else…
