Vintage Boler Micro Camper- Should I buy it? (Tiny House Conversion?)

July 24, 2019 john 20 1844 04:55

Derek “Deek” Diedricksen, checks out a vintage Boler camper (aka “The Egg”) and contemplates whether or not he should buy it as a restoration or tiny house conversion project. Boler campers were based and built out of Canada (and Wichita/US) and are highly collectible to some (and look much like “The Scamp” campers/Rvs). This one…

Russian Tiny House built w/FREE pallet wood (off grid homesteading)

July 11, 2019 john 19 2007 10:14

This tiny house, or weekend off grid cabin, has very little to it budget-wise, aside from the cedar shingles. Beyond the initial joist lumber, this project almost required no money as it was built with a large number of free pallets. It was built from a set of plans based on the age-old Sami Huts-…

As some choose to live a life on the road through tiny houses on wheels or van conversions (or skoolies- converted school buses), NC’s JJ Catlett has been providing a custom built product where there is a need- and has been keeping very busy at that. He calls his vehicles “Adventure Mobiles”. Take a look…

The WORST tiny house/cabin we’ve seen! DANGEROUS (Arizona)

May 15, 2019 john 20 3364 10:53

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…

The “Perpetual Star” Tiny House – Ultra Light and RV-like

April 11, 2019 john 23 1969 12:19

Part work of art, part ultra-light home, “The Perpetual Star” tiny house (built by Ben Strong) blurs the boundaries between nature and shelter with its open floor plan, enormous window, and curve-linear shape (almost “Leaf like”). Derek “Deek” Diedricksen, while teaching a tiny house workshop build in Melbourne Australia (with Darren Hughes and Lisa Adams…

CHEAP Underground tiny home/bunker- off grid living/camping-shelter

March 30, 2019 john 37 3138 11:43

No “happy little clouds” here, but this speed sketch and narration almost reminded me of a forts, shacks, n tiny house version of what Bob Ross used to do (the old paint n narrate approach). Anyway, in this speech sketch (don’t worry, it speeds up later), Derek “Deek” Diedricksen talks about possibly tackling something like…

Tiny House Campout Mini Festival in NC- w/NEW home added!

March 4, 2019 john 6 1118 02:33

THIS! We’re intentionally keeping it small as a live-build workshop (with talks, demos, camping allowed, and more!!!)- not too many slots left. We don’t want over 30 heads so as to keep it intimate. In fact the ratio of tiny house builders and hosts to students will be about one teacher for everything three students,…

Would you? $150k Hurricane-proof “Tiny House” Castle

January 29, 2019 john 21 2615 04:16

Originally on the “OddUSA” channel. At 910 square feet, its borderline “tiny”, and at least “small”, but BIG on uniqueness. Check out “The Irish Bayou Castle” aka “The Swamp Castle”, located just on the edge of New Orleans, Louisiana. You’ll pass this one (and see it from the highway) while traveling east on I-10 while…
