Derek “Deek” Diedricksen (Author of “Microshelters” and host of HGTV’s “Tiny House Builders”) talks to 5th Grader Callie Hilton at the 2017 Georgia Tiny House Festival in Eatonton. Callie’s design only cost $10 (over materials her father had laying around in his shop), weighs in the ballpark of a mere 25 pounds, and features a solar light, rain collection, solar cooker, and even a composting toilet. Callie, a tiny house fanatic, set upon constructing this wheeled shelter with the homeless in mind for a class project. Her grade- an A+, naturally…..
No doubt she’ll go on to inspire many young builders…..
