So I successfully made my trek and back to Boston for Derek Diedricksen’s micro cabin workshop.
In 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
Firstly, I’ve got to say how awesome it was to check out his creations in person.
Building Alongside Like-Minded People
Those 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, labor, and a pinch of creativity.
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 that I stayed in after we designed and built it.
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 another activity.
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 since 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 lookout 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!
