Praise for the author's tiny structures "For ingenuity, thrift, and charm, Mr. Diedricksen's tiny structures are hard to beat."-New York Times Praise for Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts "Using salvaged materials and power tools, Diedricksen creates cozy living spaces filled with artistic touches that you would never expect to see in an average trailer or treehouse. He'll create colorful patterns of blue and green glass circles on a wall by sawing wine bottles in half. He's been known to incorporate pickle jars into his designs. That round window that looks like a portal on a ship? That used to be the window on a front-loading washing machine. It's Mad Magazine, meets This Old House." --Emily Sweeney, The Boston Globe"If you like little houses as much as I do, then your friends probably think you're weird. The images and ideas in Deek's book are not only great porn for tiny house freaks like us, but they also serve to show your friends that there is someone out there whose fascination with the subject is even more perverse than yours." --Jay Shafer, Tiny Tumbleweed House Company "Humble Homes... is great book, I really enjoyed it, and its packed with information much like the old Whole Earth Catalog." --Lester Walker (Author of Tiny Houses, and American Shelter)"I was so wowed by this book. It's awesome. The information is practical and raw, and very unpretentious. The overall feel is so honest and authentic." --Gregory Paul Johnson- President of The National Small House Society and "Think: Wayne's World-meets-'This Old House'- in book form." --Jon Kalish- NPR/National Public Radio D.I.Y. Host "Deek brings the element of fun to the tiny house movement. He's obviously having a great time with his life, and his easily accessible drawings will inspire many a reader -- who would otherwise not have done so -- to pick up a hammer and saw and build a treehouse, a fort, a shack, or a solar shower, and realize "Hey, I can do that!" --Lloyd Kahn- Editor of Shelter Publications, and author of Shelter, HomeWork, and Builders of the Pacific Coast "Amazing. This is a must have book for those that appreciate extreme (and wacky) simple solutions! Crammed full of what flows from Derek's wild imagination, Humble Homes is part comic book, notebook, and alternative living encyclopedia all in one. Hand written and illustrated, virtually every page is crammed full of black and white drawings and notes that describe a vast array of ideas and solutions for simple living." --Michael Janzen- "I would not be surprised if Humble Homes were to become a mini classic of its own within the surprisingly well-organized, and recently more and more in the spotlight, world of "tiny house" enthusiasts. The book reads like a demented Boy Scout's fantasy notebook of plans, and some of the designs are downright cuh-razy, but all in all, there's a lot here to get your own creative juices going. To sum up, the book is a lot of fun, and whets my appetite for future episodes of Diedricksen's "Tiny Yellow House" video series-I can't wait to see more of his off the wall designs come to life! --Katherine Sharpe, Readymade Magazine "Derek's book is a far cry from anything conventional. Deek aims to inspire with his ideas, ideas that may well earn his book a place in tiny house history. What he ends up doing is reconstructing the mind into accepting what constitutes shelter. Deek's book is important not so much because it is another entertaining zine produced by an overly creative young person, but because he is both fed by a movement and contributing a large chunk to it with his mind bending, Houdini like acts of radically small, home-built shelters. --Amanda Kovattana- of Deja Vu Construction (CA) "Humble Homes..." explores the possibilities of the small home ~ and is the single craziest, most unique book I have ever seen. It's like MacGyver and Bob Villa sat down to make a graphic novel but made a catalog for Building 19 instead...all illustrated in a wonderful and crazy style." --Gene Higgins, The Worcester Pulse Magazine "Humble Homes... is a hoot, an education, and an inspiration, crammed with Diedricksen's designs. The book is obsessively illustrated with wacky cartoon or designs drawings, and is brimming with Yankee ingenuity, junkyard philosophy, and plenty of eye-rolling yucks. The funky energy of Humble Homes... reminds me a lot of Lloyd Kahns "Shelter" books, Malcolm Wells solar architecture books, and other homemade home books from The Whole Earth Catalog." --Gareth Branwyn, Make Magazine "Simply put, if you are the type of person who walks by a pile of curbside junk and thinks "I could make something out of that" - then THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU! Derek Diedricksen has put together a comprehensive collection of rather compelling building alternatives, combining his own building experiences with his creative imagination and excellent pen and ink drawing. Even if you never pick up a hammer, Humble Homes is a hugely fascinating journey from beginning to end." --David and Jeanie Stiles, authors of Cabins: A Guide to Building Your Own Nature Retreat and Sheds - The-Do-It-Yourself Guide "Brilliant! I want to write a book like this. But I can't. Derek is my new best friend and he doesn't even know me. He will though, by God. He will..." --Peter Nelson, Founder of The Treehouse Workshop Inc. and Author of Treehouses of The World "For me, each page of Humble Homes... is a mutant love child of my past year, A Few Zines meets Tiny Houses. I never imagined the two could co-exist, but Deek did. For him, a hardcore playing Eagle scout, the link between DIY construction and DIY publishing is seamless. And inspired. Without moaning about the ill winds blowing down both media and housing, Deek tackled his pages with 83 black pens; one after another they gave themselves to his one man revolution. --Mimi Zeiger Dwell Magazine/Author of "Micro-Green" and "Tiny Houses"Think David Stiles and Rube Goldberg on a caffeine bender. One of the more unique and entertaining micro-housing books out there." -Mark Schelary (Indie Zine Author of "Who Forted?") "Clearly displaying his upbringing on a diet of punk rock and hardcore zines, Diedrickson has offered up one of the more eclectic and DIY mini-house books on the market." -The Wilmington Weekly Online "The book weirded me out a little ... Is it cool of I put up a fence?" -the author's neighbor "With close to fifty low-cost, do-it-yourself, fort, cabin and shelter designs, Diedricksen's Humble Homes ... is a veritable eye-tiring, carpal-tunnel-inducing barrage of wildly original dimestore-pen sketches, with a wealth of designs bordering from the clever and ultra-efficient, to the outright insane." -Fortpimp Magazine (Oregon)

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Über YouTube bin ich auf dieses Buch aufmerksam geworden und Dank meiner guten Englischkenntnisse hat mich die Sprache überhaupt nicht abgeschreckt.
Neben vielen Skizzen und Ideen findet man in diesem DIY-Buch auch einige Hintergrundinformationen zu der Idee, kleine Häuser zu bauen. Doch nicht nur Unterkünfte werden vorgestellt, auch Outdoor-Duschen und Toiletten kommen zur Sprache.
Eines sucht man in diesem Buch jedoch vergebens: detaillierte Baupläne. Davon distanziert sich der Autor allerdings gleich auf den ersten Seiten, denn dieses Buch soll lediglich anregen, nicht anleiten.
Und genau das gelingt den liebevollen Skizzen sehr gut. Das Buch inspiriert jedoch nicht nur, etwas zu bauen, sondern auch, darüber nachzudenken, ob man tatsächlich auf 200 qm leben muss, wenn ein kleines Häuschen mit 50 qm auch ausreicht.
Einen Nachteil gibt es für alle deutschen Bürger: Die Bauvorschriften sind hier in Deutschland wesentlich strenger und darum mag nicht jede Idee tatsächlich umsetzbar sein - aber mit ein paar kleinen Änderungen sicherlich machbar.
Einen Stern Abzug gibt es lediglich für die manchmal schwer zu entziffernde Handschrift. Im Großen und Ganzen kann man die Texte sehr gut lesen, aber hin und wieder fällt es einem doch schwer.
Empfehlenswert ist es für alle kreativen Köpfe, die ein wenig bauen möchten, ausgediente Dinge nicht wegschmeißen wollen und nach Inspirationen suchen - und natürlich für alle, die Englisch verstehen.

Finally a book that doesn't take itself too seriously 23. Januar 2012
Von andrew odom - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I doubt in 50 years this book will be the anthology of tiny house building or anything of the sort. What I do think it will do though is spark a great deal of imagination and ingenuity towards sustainable living habits, micro-shelters, and tiny houses alike.

Diedricksen went to obvious great pains to think outside of the box all the while encouraging readers to challenge their own notions of how much space one actually needs to live. His sketches are great quality, they are colorful (even in black and white!!!!), and they are instructional. This book is NOT a How-To guide with every precise measurement annotated and documented. It is not meant to be though. It is meant to be a light read on a subject that often takes itself too seriously.

I fully recommend this book to anyone looking to see just what can be done, what has been done, and where there is still more work to be done in the micro-shelter arena!

Wow- fun, weird, unique, and LOADED with ideas... 23. Januar 2012
Von Rockguy30 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Tiny Architecture (something like 50-60 or so cabin, tiny house, shelter, and fort concepts), meets comedy and "Where's Waldo"-Like, incredibly-busy, artwork. Who'd think these three, in combo, would work? They do- and rather well. This is probably one of the more unique/bizarre tiny housing, small spaces and shelters idea books out there. Very eclectic- and reminds me of the old "Whole Earth Catalog". Not full out plans, but pages and pages of cabin creations and concepts.

Humble Homes, Simple Shacks,Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle retreats,Funky Forts:And Whatever The Heck Else We Could Squeeze in Here 22. Januar 2012
Von Kathe B - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Now this is a carpentry book that is totally enjoyable! It allows the reader to learn not only about the possibilities of small house living but also fun retreats designed with their own imaginations sparked by the author's enthusiasm. This would also be a great gift to spark an interest in building or rekindle the love for! Love this book!

Anything is possible 23. Januar 2012
Von 2Wexford - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
For a poor quality woodworker like me (someone who likes banging and crashing in the shed) this book is great , it says, use what you got,find or scrounge and have a go. No right or wrong but it,s all yours, buy the book and open your mind to a new way to build.

Recycled lumber, ingenuity and a whole lotta chutzpah 4. Februar 2012
Von C. Nellemann - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In the bubbling pot that is the tiny house movement, there are some special tidbits that float to the top. A few of these are "Deek" Diedrickson's micro houses. While most tiny house builders, advocates and dreamers are mostly concerned with symmetry, livability and traditionalism, Deek thinks outside the proverbial box and creates whimsical, recycled structures that defy most imaginations.

"Humble Home, Simple Shacks..." is more for the person who admires ingenuity rather than the person looking for blueprints for their next domicile. However, looking through Deek's imaginative sketches, project ideas, sustainability tips, jokes and ways to stick it to "the Man", you might start to think a little differently about the things you think you need.

My favorite structures are "The Beak (2)" and the "Hickshaw". Look them up.
