Rich in Vermont built this tiny 10×16 shed. This photo was taken in 2013. Here’s what he said when he posted the photo.
I’m done with clapboard! Well, not entirely, but I need a couple of doors on the shed before that can happen. The second coat of paint is on, but the trim paint won’t be done until next year.” – rich2Vermont
A nice Tumbleweed EPU recently completed in Vermont.
“This month my tiny house was completed after a few years of preparation and three months of building. Josh Wengard, a terrific carpenter of Re-Design Construction in Londenderry, Vermont did most everything. I sealed the cedar siding, sanded the maple kitchen counter and generally got in the way. The house was built using the Epu plans from the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, though some modifications were made. The final cost was just under $32,000 for building.”
Deek has begun posting photos and news of the summer camp workshop he hosted in Vermont. Looks like they all had a very productive time.
“Well, since I’m somewhat caught up on rest from five days in the backwoods of Vermont, and with four of those days being our Relaxshacks.com “Tiny House Summer Camp”, I thought I’d share some photos with you.”
Peter King teaches hands-on tiny house construction workshops in and around Vermont. The next workshop will be held on September 15 and 16, 2010.
I was recently contacted by a fellow named Derek Alexander Diedricksen who is in the process of writing a book called, “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts, and Anything Else We Could Squeeze in Here.” It turns out that Derek is quite a scavenger-builder himself.
