Suzanne St. Pierre and Scott’s Paint Can Lid Outhouse Siding…..
Pretty simple…. a la flattened metal-juice can siding, which I’ve tried- it works well!

A marsh-side TREE HOUSE in Scituate, MA

This particular treehouse is in Scituate, MA- what a spot!

As many of you know, my Relaxshacks.com blog is pretty eclectic and not just about Tiny Houses- not only does tinyhouseblog, tinyhousedesign, and tinyhousetalk (and many others) kick-butt at that in coverage, but, well, I’ve got tiny shelter, house, cabin, fort, and overall-structure A.D.D.- so I can’t help myself. One look at my “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks” book, and you’ll get the idea- lol.
Anyway, I am ESPECIALLY fond of tree houses and tree forts too! So, I couldn’t resist sharing this one, as I continue to take, and search for photos for my upcoming book on the subject (tiny houses, cabins, tree houses, playhouses, and more!). If you have any photos, as always- kidcedar@gmail.com.


PS- after our April 26th-28th Hands-On Tiny House Building, Three Day Workshop, in Wilmington, NC– I just may schedule a tree house building one in MA- we’ll see….one step at a time.CLICK HERE FOR INFO on that workshop….



One WACKY playhouse/tiny house? Shed Office potential?

I can’t find a building-credit on this one- anyone? Its just SO cool!

This one’s meant as a kids clubhouse/playhouse/fort, but swap it out with a better/”more adult” door and what a cool, colorful, and funky tiny house or backyard shed office this would be! It even has an outdoor bar, a built in chair, deck, and a climbing wall!

THESE are some of the wild builds, photos, and designs I’m looking for in the follow-up book (to “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks”) that I’m working on- if you’ve built a tree house, fort, bizarre tiny house, playhouse, or shed conversion, send it over to kidcedar@gmail.com and we might showcase you on the blog AND perhaps in this book.

PS- I also run another fledgling blog called www.FORTADAY.com– if you like this type stuff, its a fun little, eye-candy, blog.
