Coming soon, we’ll have a talk with Kevin Harrington from 
AND…we’ll have a guest post from Andrew Odom of

Meanwhile, here’s something I’ve been messing with….
     I jokingly have dubbed it the “Lollipop Fort Of Death” (aka The Human Birdhouse)…seeing as it looks so unsafe- its really not bad at all though, and with the knee-bracing, more stable than you’d think. Its a simple prototype (of an imagined real-deal, larger (adult-sized) cabin) that would be built on a very hefty steel pole, or enormous girder, cemented deep into the ground. Think: A much shorter cell phone tower pole, but with a tiny little house or office plopped on top of it.
    I’m far from finished in these photos, and while I’m also working on that tiny, tiny houseboat/shantyboat still, this is something I wanted to finish, shoot, and get out of the way, for Make Magazine- a future show/episode of “Tiny Yellow House” while I have time. More to come….and this weekend’s the Boston Tumbleweed Tiny House Workshop, that I’m heading- I hope to see some of you there.

How do you get in? Are the brace pieces a ladder of sorts? Does something in the floor lift up allowing entrance?
