Our intrepid man of tiny house mystery, Derek "Deek" Diedricksen, was in Vermont recently for a Tiny House Summer Camp. Thanks to MAKE, we have a little video to share. Deek is über-knowledgable about building tiny houses. Draw a tall drink from his well of knowledge at our Chicago and New York Workshops. Both locations are on sale until the end of the month, so act fast!
Here we go! Welcome to our 3rd Virtual Tumbleweed Contest. The theme this time is 'The Perfect Retreat'. We are looking for boards that showcase what your perfect tiny house retreat would look like. Here are the rules:
1. Build a board on Pinterest with "VTC3" in the title. That way, I can find it when I search.
2. Once you've build your dream virtual Tumbleweed, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "VTC3" in the subject line.
3. Pinterest pinboards can be submitted starting today, August 21, 2012 through Sunday, August 26, 2012.
4. Have fun!
On Monday, August 27, 2012, I will post the top 10 boards as determined by our staff. You can vote for you favorite board through Wednesday, August 29, 2012, 5:00 pm PST. The winner will be announced on Friday, August 31st, 2012.

Our intrepid tiny house building machine Derek "Deek" Diedricksen was featured on the "Livin' Large" episode of the new show "The United STATS of America" (hosted by the comedic twins Jason and Randy Sklar) on the History Channel. Deek was kind enough to send us a clip. You can watch the complete show here, which is a great expose of the the American obsession with space, and "more, more, more!".
