Half a Table for your Tiny House (Straight from the Junk Heap)

A few things….

 First, I see junk tables chucked all the time on curbs, and while a simple wall-mounted shelf would make more sense in a tiny home and provide just as much storage space, the cool factor, and unique look, of this is undeniable. Fun n’ funky (and free!)- just keep your eyes peeled and fire up that circular saw… Again, I’m a sucker for orange…

Another way to make your table, AND room, seem bigger

 AND….. (much ado about tiny housing…)

-THIS THURSDAY- 6:30 PM- I’m at the EASTON LIBRARY (The “Ames Free Library”) in its unreal, historic, Yale-like, main library room to speak about my book “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks”….I have a little slide show on some really cool tiny homes I’ll be showing as well.

-ALSO- The Miami, FL Tumbleweed Tiny House Workshop (April 14-15) that I’m hosting (I can’t wait)- now has two guest speakers who’ll be jumping into this info-laden event
          
Alex Pino of Tinyhousetalk.com
          
and Jo-Anne Peck of HistoricShed.com (who have built some great tiny homes, and in-laws)
Check ’em both out!

Check out/sign up for the workshop at http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/workshops/miami/
And Boston’s workshop… http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/workshops/boston/
         

-LASTLY, I hit the amazing, seaside town of Rockport, MA over the weekend, and the place was just loaded with some cool, tiny homes and shops. I took a slew of photos, for what could eventually be included in a follow-up design book on tiny homes and cabins. I’ll share some of those soon….

-Derek “Deek” Diedricksen is the author of “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks”, Host of “Tiny Yellow House” TV on youtube, and blogger behind “Fortaday.com”. Check out Deek’s book by clicking HERE.

When my grandmother down sized and moved from her house into a small senior apartment. This is exactly what my dad did for her took her kitchen table and half it and then bolted it to the wall. It was a very neat idea!
