 SOME TINY HOUSE EYE CANDY FOR YA’- A photo I took from Rockport, MA- A great town for tiny house sightings! Many more photos to come from my Rockport trip a few weeks back…

“Tiny House Summer Camp” is quickly turning into more a tiny housing geek convention than a workshop….kidding…well, then again…..either way, its a very GOOD thing…. we’ll list the full entire roster real soon, I promise….

July 6-9th- For four days, just outside Orleans, Vermont, I’ll be hosting a tiny house building workshop in the woods, where guests will have the chance to not only swing some hammers and learn the tricks of the trade (while we assemble a micro-cabin I designed for a show on The History Channel), but will be able to stay in a log cabin, my Vermont cabin, a treehouse, and more- a field with camping space and tenting is also right in the midst of the 10 acre spread where we’ll be hosting this. Two meals included, a log cabin notching demo, a field trip or two, and campfire discussions at night will make this a weekend to certainly remember.

To recap…
Guest speakers are:
William Rockhill– who runs Bear Creek Carpentry ( he’s a lifelong carpenter from the Adirondacks, and has built MANY tiny houses for the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, and for log cabins numerous clients. 

Mariah Coz– of and her classic Avalon Camper, which she’s renovating in a VERY green/eco fashion to serve as a mobile classroom for living a low impact life, through the re-use and fixing of trailers and rvs.

Kevin Harrington of– coming all the way from Texas to talk about his small house concepts and designs, and more…

and my brother Dustin “Dr. Demolition” Diedricksen will be making it as well- he’s a small house dweller, environmental engineer, and will have alot, by means of space saving designs and approaches, to offer to this workshop.

Workshop- 4 days, is $399 before May 15th- $475 after. Email me at kidcedar at gmail dot com if interested.

And we’ll probably have more!

I always enjoy the ornate fascia patterns that you see on those older new england homes. You know, in a doily kind of way.
