The Fort On Feet! And "The Seat Of Solitude" micro "cabin"- the tiniest sauna you’ll ever see….

I love this one- I think it might have been Alex Pino over at tinyhousetalk.com or Steven Harrell at tinyhouselistings.com that posted this up on his facebook account a little ways back, but I can’t recall. I also thought that you could take this goof-concept even further (I assume its an ice fishing shack of sorts), and have FAKE legs (anchored into the earth (not a pond), posed as if to look as they were mid-stride, serving as the “pole” supports of this cabin. It would work, and I just might have to make a spin-off sketch/design.

“A FORT (fishing shack/tiny shelter) ON FEET!” What’s clever, is that the sides appear to be some sort of stretched canvas or fabric, and by having it a dark color (black), you’re using the sun’s absorbed heat to your advantage, instead of freezin’ your arse off in the middle of a frozen lake.

 Anyway, make this one out of 1/4″ or 3/8″ plywood, with mere 1″ by 1″ outer-edge framing, and it would work, and would be “carryable”. Just don’t forget to cut a few airholes!

I actually have some sketches of this kind of thing, mainly as a joke, from years past, and another like-minded sketch, in a way, that we DID NOT add to the new “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks” edition. I just didn’t feel the drawing and idea was good enough- and well, it wasn’t. Further below, I’ve added that sketch, which also serves as #32 in “SIXTY SHACKS SKETCHES IN SIXTY DAYS” leading up to the release (already on amazon.com) of the new book.

A pointless, but fun, “Seat Of Solitude”- perhaps even the world’s smallest sauna, if you could rig a way! lol. Sketch and design by Derek “Deek” Diedricksen

 Thanks to all who have supported me and this blog by pickin’ up a copy- its only $11.25

Also, btw way, my band “Age Against The Machine” has been booked to play the New Hampshire Primaries, RIGHT in the heart of Manchester, NH this Saturday. You cannot find a single hotel room in that whole city for this coming weekend, so it should be CRAZY. We’re at The Shaskeen– a really cool Irish venue, with a hidden back rock-room. The place is alot of fun. Just FYI.
