So I successfully made my trek and back to Boston for Derek Diedricksen’s micro cabin workshop.
I left on Friday morning and got back Sunday evening so it was a relatively short trip. I enjoyed several rum and Dr. Pepper’s (that got pricey), a little bit of Wendy’s and five separate airplane rides.
On this post you’ll get to experience a taste of some of the fun we had, the cool people I met, the micro cabins we built and a couple of other surprises.
Deek’s Awesome Collection of Micro Cabins
First I’ve got to say how awesome it was to check out his creations in person.
Building Alongside Like Minded People
People who attended got to learn hands on how to design and build alongside Derek and his brother Dustin who we all had the opportunity to learn from.
All who attended had a chance to take part in the design and construction of two cabins using partly recycled materials, some creativity and a bit of labor.
Introducing the Krunk Bunk
You’ve got to hop on over to Derek’s blog and check out one of his latest posts on this cabin, which I had the pleasure of sleeping in, and we all got to help design and build.
This tiny structure is meant to be used as a floating loft so it’s great if you have high ceilings and want to double up on some space for sleeping or whatever else you can think of.
Other Inspiring Happenings
I had a few interesting takeaways from the workshop. Meeting Tristan and Libby of WhittledDown.com was awesome. Seeing and experiencing their “modern” Gypsy Wagon was a real cool treat for everyone there, including myself because I’d never seen one of these in person.
It was funny too because we got to see them driving away as I left for the airport. It was fun seeing their wagon on the road and onto the highway. Definitely a head turner, haha.
I may decide to put together a teardrop trailer (have always wanted to) if I can recruit the help of others, haha. That’s all for today but be on the look out for updates from Deek as he’ll be showcasing more of the micro shelters that we built while there.
Besides THAT, if you want to get more stuff like this enter your email towards the top right of this page (or below) so I can add you to our mailing list. See ya in there!
