This is an example of how NOT to build a cabin! It’s the worst tiny cabin that Derek Diedricksen has ever encountered and stayed at.
You can see a few shots of just how bad it is below and you can watch the entire video with Deek to learn about all of the terrible design and construction mistakes in this cabin, and how it is for sure going to collapse into the ground because of the way water is running into it. Yikes. Can you believe there are places out there like this for rent?

The Worst Tiny Cabin Vacation with Deek… How NOT To Build Your Tiny House…
Video – The Worst Tiny House We’ve Seen w/ Derek Diedricksen
HOW many WRONG things/mistakes can YOU find in this cabin?
I’m not mentioning the town this is in, just the state, and in NO WAY intend to insult the owners of this cabin should they see this (they rent it from afar and I’m not even sure they know the scope/condition of it to be honest). Anyway, I’m hoping that this video can help show some the importance of building to safety codes and that things, when in doubt, should always be overbuilt if anything. This cabin/tiny house (listed as a tiny house rental) is just outright dangerous in the way it was built and will not last. Yes, I’ve even mentioned this to the owners in an email (but never heard back from them). I never met the owners in person either. Again, to protect their privacy, the exact locale of the cabin will not be given- nor the names of the owners. If anything, this video will educate some and potentially even save a future life, as a cabin built like this is bound to collapse. I mean no ill will against the owners, or their business, as again, people viewing won’t even know where this cabin is- and side note- the house number you see isn’t even accurate- not sure what its significance is.
