In this edition of Tiny Yellow House, Derek "Deek" Diedricksen builds a project from his new book "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks". This 72 square foot writing retreat is made to double as a future greenhouse. In classic Deek style, the cabin employs a very simple building approach and includes several recycled elements. It's spin-off of his cabin design "Down At Big Lee's Swamp" and was created for Massachusetts horror author John Grover.
