A preliminary daydream rough sketch of the micro, jon boat, shelter/houseboat that I’ve been working on….

                                        
     Well, I started this, as a lead up to the new version of my book “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks”– to show some new, old, and b-side cabin and tiny house concepts I had sketched up, but things like new projects, a trip to Seattle, being involved with the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, and a trip to Florida got me very sidetracked and pinched for time. I ain’t no quitter though, so lets work on burying this one!

Here are sketches #56 and #57– unreleased and rough stuff…..

CLICK TO ENLARGE…. rough plans for an alteration of “The Cub” Cabin I designed….

 I also have some more shantyboat and houseboat sketches (as I’m building one) AND A VIDEO, that I’ll be tossing up soon. I recently purchased a domain name for a side blog to chronicle the progress of this lil’ floating shelter…

And “Tiny House Summer Camp” in Northern Vermont- July 6, 7, 8, 9th– while not even fully billed and posted (“officially”) already has some people signed up. If interested, kidcedar at gmail dot com. Building, tiny house and cabin tours, stay in a treehouse(!), a few meals included, campfire talks, solar demos, and more(!)- $399 early bird for the 4 day experience (by May 15th). The next TWO people who sign up will also get a free copy of Lloyd Kahn’s spectacular book “Tiny Homes, Simple Shelter”- where THE Vermont cabin, we’ll be staying in, and hanging out in, is featured. Its a kick-arse $25 book that we’ll toss your way for signing up.

We’ll all rotate and you’ll have the chance to stay in a rustic log cabin, a treehouse, my vermont cabin, and perhaps even a micro cabin like “The Hickshaw”. Tenting spots are also provided. There’s nearby camp-cabin lodging too, for those who want a more “glamping”-like experience.
