Looking for tiny house plans? Here they are. The Tiny House or Small House movement has a number of well known thought leaders, Derek Diedricksen leads by building Tiny Houses. Derek is the author of a new book of tiny house plans and ideas, Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts
The best way to describe Deek’s book is a mash up of Tiny House Architecture meets Comic Zine.
Reviews of the book describe it in a similar way, Mad Magazine meets This Old House meets Wayne’s World.
And the book is very GardenFork; unpretentious and not afraid to be who he is, Deek fits right in in the GardenFork world. Taking found materials, stuff you find in your neighbor’s garbage, and building Tiny Houses with fun names. “TV Viewing Fort Cube” and “The Yeehaw Spa” are just two of the many small house designs in the book.
Deek’s book is an idea starter, not a book of finished tiny house plans, its a book to start you on 100 ideas of how to build a tiny house that fits your world. Each page is jammed with what comes out of his head – which is similar to how my head works, i just can’t draw or drink as much caffeine.
You will read each page more than once, you will forget what page your were on and it wont matter, because whatever page you land on is filled with more cool ideas. If this book were designed like most how-to books, it would be 400 pages.
This book will take you on many tangents and you will land somewhere unplanned, but that’s a good thing, I think.
