Deek at Walden Cabin Posted on October 28, 2010 In Video Derek “Deek” Diedricksen had an opportunity to visit Henry David Thoreau‘s cabin yesterday and posted a video tour of the famous little cabin on YouTube. Deek is the author of the book Humble Homes Simple Shacks… and micro house creations like the Boxy Lady.

Thank you. Reply SteveR October 29, 2010 At least he did point out that it is just a replica. The hot dog stand however, is the original. Walden did actually walk into town regularly and was not as isolated as people might believe. It wasn’t his land either, he was squatting on Ralph Waldo Emerson’s turf. Reply Deek October 30, 2010 Thanks for checking it out- yeah I called it “Thoreau’s land more or less” in the video I believe, as I know it wasn’t actually his land. Story goes (warning: icon killing information) his mother, I recall hearing, used to bake and deliver him pastries all the time to his cabin- and he’d often go to the Emerson’s for dinner….or so I’ve read a few places….he also loved the #3 combo at the hot dog stand you saw in the video…lol… Still- cool cabin, and the ideas (Walden) are there… -Deek Relaxshacks.com Reply paul lunemann March 15, 2012 Try Lester Walker’s Tiny, Tiny Houses. There are drawings and details, if not actual plans. Also, there are other designs that are of interest. Reply Karen August 2, 2012 Planning on building small camp on small lake in NH. LOVE THESE PLANS !! All we want is a get-a-way place that’s easy to keep and cozy. Again, love these plans !! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
