If You Haven’t Met Derek… You Need To – Tinker, Lyrist, Carpenter, Cartoonist

I’ve been talking to Derek Diedricksen online for a while now, I started following him after I read his Humble Homes Simple Shacks book i which he draws dozens of really cool shacks and shanties straight from the mind of of a 10 years old but way more thought out.

Nearly three decades later and he’s still building and has turned his childhood passion into a career. He runs one of the original tiny house blogs (Relaxshacks.com), has authored a graphic novel/ DIY instruction manual “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts”, hosts tiny house building workshops (his next is Nov 22-23 in Carolina Beach, NC).
