Book Review: Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts (And Whatever The Heck Else We Could Squeeze In Here!)

Derek Diedricksen’s new book is everything I expected it to be and more. It’s also got what might be the longest book title in history, Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts (And Whatever The Heck Else We Could Squeeze In Here!).

Inside you’ll find about 90 pages crammed full of what flows from Derek’s wild imagination. It’s part comic book, notebook, and alternative living encyclopedia that’s mostly 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. This is a must have book for those that appreciate extreme (and wacky) simple solutions.

It costs $15.95, which includes shipping inside the USA. Shipping for outside the USA costs a little more. If you’d like to buy a copy contact Derek directly at email hidden; JavaScript is required.

    And Michael, you’ll be the first to get some photos of my “Cocoon Hut” when its FINALLY done- which should be soon (although its 4 degrees outside right now in MA, so I might pass on working on it today). Woodstove’s been burnin’ overdrive!
