Deek at Walden Cabin

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.

    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.

    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…

    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 !!
