Exchange Exemplar: All Buildings Small And Smaller


It's been described as a "movement," but building small structures is nothing new.  Tiny houses were the natural choice before humans began building bigger houses. 

And Derek Diedricksen began working on small-scale buildings years ago.  He gives an overview of such buildings and a variety of uses for them in his book Microshelters: 59 Creative Cabins, Tiny Houses, Tree Houses, and Other Small Structures.  Derek Diedricksen, "Deek" to nearly everybody, visited in 2015, and we revisit the interview.
