Had this one in my back pocket for awhile and somewhat just forgot to post it. The premise is simple: The tiniest of shelters (that sleeps two) atop a floating, somewhat hydrodynamic platform. Cheap n’ easy to build, and kept afloat with recycled debris (2 liter soda bottles).

This is one of the sketches that didn’t make the time cut for the new version of “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks”- but will be in book #2 down the road….(which you can order below- only $11.29)

Again, looks like we also might try to do a Vermont workshop at my cabin in the woods this summer, or fall, email me if you want to be added to our update list for this- kidcedar at gmail dot com. We’ll tour my cabin, a nearby log cabin (featured on, see “The U.B. 30 Treehouse”, another really cool micro garden shack/potting shed, a nearby camp full of tiny houses, AND we’ll work on building a tiny cabin/house/guest sleeper on my property, among other things! A full weekend workshop. Fri to Sat- might have a guest speaker, presenter, or two…
