Still goin’ strong…..but we’ll see how long….(enter: beatbox beats). Sketch #5 of my “SIXTY SHACK SKETCHES IN SIXTY DAYS” (leading up to the release of the NEW version of “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks” – available for pre-order NOW) is below. First though….Here are some updates on a window I made from a $1.00, dollar-store, glass plate for the micro A-frame cabin/single-sleeper I’ve been building. Pretty dang simple, but I feel it looks decent- especially for an application in a shed, vacation camp, outhouse, shack, or kid’s fort/treehouse.

Over time, the holes from the nail gun will swell shut (from exterior moisture/rain).

ALSO- MEGA THANKS to….

LLOYD KAHN- for posting on my “SIXTY SHACK SKETCHES IN SIXTY DAYS” quest- his blog is GREAT- from photos, to simple living, tiny architecture… http://lloydkahn-ongoing.blogspot.com/2011/12/deek-diedrickson-s-next-book.html

Lloyd’s review (damn flattering, considering I own about 4-5 of this guy’s books)- Lloyd is also in a NEW chapter in the book dropping some design input- its a section called “Tricks Of The Trade”.
    “Deek Diedricksen, the guy who puts the fun into the tiny homes movement, is working on a sequel to his charming book of tiny homes, Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts: And Whatever the Heck Else We Could Squeeze in Here — a funny, inspiring, informative and friendly scrapbook of plans.”

Hmmm….this WOULD make for a bad-ass treehouse, or a really FUNKY chicken coop too….

 AND thanks to Steven from TINYHOUSELISTINGS.com another GREAT SITE- where I’ve wasted LOTS of time perusing its listings… He posted on my A-frame cabin project…
