Derek has built several micro houses in his backyard out of reclaimed materials. In this video interview, Merete Mueller and Christopher Smith give you a glimpse into Deek’s world.
Micro Houses & Backyard Forts
What I like the most about small structures is all of the different ways that people can benefit from them. Many of the micro homes that Deek creates cost less than $200 to build.
If you’re willing to look around with an open mind, you can find lots of your materials for free as long as you have the time and willingness to look around and talk to people.
