A few days ago I received Derek Diedricksen’s latest edition of Humble Homes, Simple Shacks in the mail so I was pretty excited to be able to review it so you can see what it’s all about before you order it.
In this video I’ll give you a sneak peak of the book that way you can figure out whether it’s something you’d find useful or not.
It’s a really fun book with tons of ideas. Some very practical and others are straight up funky. Either way the book will certainly get you thinking.
Well, enough yapping on here. Click the “play” button below to watch the complete review.

This is Derek Diedricksen’s Hickshaw Micro Cabin (circa 2010). Over ten years ago, I was really excited to see these photos in my e-mail today from Derek “Deek” Diedricksen.
Why so excited? Because he built this getaway mini cabin for under $200. Much of it was using recycled materials, too. So yeah, it’s the Hickshaw… a $200 Micro Cabin built by Deek Diedricksen.
I would love to have something like this to work, read, relax, and sometimes even nap in. Thanks for sharing this with us, Derek. Here are some newer (and older), as yet seen, photos of the cabin. Enjoy!
