"TINY YELLOW HOUSE"- A Writer’s Retreat/Greenhouse built from "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks"

As the video explains, this build was based off the cabin design/concept named “Down At Big Lee’s Swamp”, in my book “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks”, which you can check out through the link below. “The Horror Hut”, as I later dubbed it, is more greenhouse than tiny house, but you can see the potential its simple design for use, with some changes, as a tiny vacation cabin, shedworking spot, or a guest room for one’s backyard. It measures a mere 6′ by 12′ in size, but its 8′ ceiling (at its high point) make it seem more spacious.

This new edition of “Tiny Yellow House” for Make Magazine was shot by Mike Amato, and Steven Sherrick. And yes, we have LOTS more on the way, including three or four episodes, if all goes well, from the city of Seattle (a loooong ways from our home base near Boston, MA). We’re always in need of sponsors- we’ll thank you in the episodes and link you, etc- kidcedar at gmail dot com.

John Grover, the author we built this for, can be found at

 and- HUGE THANKS to Kevin Harrington at (and a few others, who I’ll mention soon), who have been VERY supportive and helpful with these videos! Check out some of Kevin’s tiny house designs and links over at his site…    -Derek “Deek” Diedricksen
