Derek 'Deek' Diedricksen

When: Sun., Oct. 18, 11:30 a.m. 2015

Flanked by a Stay Puft Marshmallow Man figurine and abstract artwork, Derek “Deek” Diedricksen gives a spirited introduction to his YouTube channel relaxshacksDOTcom. It’s clear from the beginning that Diedricksen is not your average home builder, and his buildings are not your average homes. A video montage of his work shows compact structures that, from the outside, could be mistaken for sheds. The interiors, however, boast many of the comforts of full-size homes — kitchens, couches, storage space and even stylish interior decorating. The host of HGTV’s “Tiny House Builders” makes two stops in the Green Mountain State to discuss his book, Microshelters: 59 Creative Cabins, Tiny Houses, Tree Houses and Other Small Structures.

Price: Free.
