Holy mega, kick-butt, over-the-top, line-up for the Boston Tumbleweed Workshop!
If you haven't signed up yet for our Boston Tiny House Building Workshop, May 19th and 20th, 2012, here are a few reasons to get your kiester in gear! This one will be hosted by our own Derek "Deek" Diedricksen, tiny house/shelter builder, Tiny Yellow House TV host, and author of "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks"....
We just added more guests to make this workshop an amazing learning experience!
JOHN HANSON MITCHELL- author of "Living At The End Of Time". John built and lived in a tiny, off-the-grid, Victorian cottage in the woods, not far from Walden Woods, and wrote the aforementioned novel about his experiences. This book is incredible and inspiring, not to mention one of the best I've read in awhile.
MARIAH COZ- of www.cometcamper.wordpress.com- who rescued a vintage Avalon camper, and is in the process of revamping it to serve as a traveling classroom to exemplify small and green living. Mariah's great! She's high energy, and very motivated to tour with her mobile dwelling and spread the word about living lightly.
And again, we'll be visiting the original Tumbleweed (an Epu), built in the early 1990s.
Sun depending, Deek might bust out one of his solar ovens to demo on the tiny house lot in downtown Boston.
We are looking forward to sharing an awesome workshop with all our New England tiny house fans. Click here to get your Boston workshop tickets now!

This week, Derek "Deek" Diedricksen shares another tiny house thrift tip. Derek is the king of space-saving and as a parent, he knows how to make the most of space in kids rooms! Check out Deek in person at his Boston Workshop.
I'm excited to announce that my friend, and fellow tiny house dweller, Sage Radachowsky (who lives in a tiny gypsy wagon in Boston that he built), will be one of a few guest speakers will join us at the Tumbleweed Tiny House Workshop in Boston May 19th and 20th.
Sage walks the walk, raises chickens, keeps bees, and lives partially off the land in the city- yes, in Boston. He'll have some very interesting stories of his run-ins with inspectors, the law, and more, while doing what he does, where he is, and how he wants. He spoke with me at Walden Woods last year for a "Tiny House Seminar" I headed, and it drew THREE TIMES the crowd the park hoped for (and now they want to make it a yearly event)- score one for the tiny house movement! This guy will be a big draw at the Boston Workshop so make sure to get your tickets ordered quickly!
Here is a video tour about Sage and his gypsy wagon that videographer Steven Sherrick and yours truly shot. More on Sage can be found at GypsyLiving.org and SelvaGuitars.com. You'll love this guy- he's all heart.
