Deek and his tiny house on The History Channel


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!". You can glean from Deek's vast storehouse of tiny house knowledge at our Chicago workshop in September. Take advantage of our whopping 40% discount until June 30th, 2012.

Another Great Workshop Review

 

Our friends over at The Comet Camper attended the workshop in Boston. They wrote a very comprehensive review of the workshop. I think you'll see why we recommend them as the next step toward your tiny house.
