S1E21 - Derek Diedricksen Raps on Shacks, Workshops, and the Past

This week our guest is Derek “Deek” Diedricksen creator of Relax Shacks, author, crazy man and self-admitted addict for building everything tiny. A successful icon of the tiny house movement, you could say Deek is the OG (Original Gansta) of the tiny house movement: he’s been building his creations since the early 80s!

Derek’s a true artist. Not content to constrain what he does to tiny houses, his self-acknowledged ADD has kept him in the flow, building all kinds of creations, from small shacks, to full-on tree houses. Like all our shows, you’re going to love this one. Stick with us and hear “Deek” throw out a few rap lyrics too. Then, check out our show notes at tinyhousepodcast.com!

Former Parole Officer turned Program Manager Rahul Salazar runs Quixote Village, a unique permanent resident facility for the homeless.

In addition to the 30 tiny houses, Quixote village comprises a large vegetable garden and a community building that contains showers, laundry facilities, a communal kitchen and living and dining space. Village residents moved into the Tiny House community from “Camp Quixote” a tent community nearby.

S1E19 - Sewer Pipe Dreams: Andreas Strauss Creates Successful hotel From Sewer Pipe

S1E19 - Sewer Pipe Dreams: Andreas Strauss Creates Successful hotel From Sewer Pipe

Ever considered living in a sewer pipe? After this episode you will. In this episode we speak with the creator behind the word’s first hotel where the rooms are fashioned from nine-ton (brand new) city sewer pipes. Affectionately called The Dasparkhotel, the hotel began as an hospitality experimental brainstorm of Andreas Strauss our guest on this show. An industrial designer and iconoclast, Andreas’ unique ideas and values fit perfectly with the Tiny House movement.

Fast forward 12 years later, his unlikely experiment today draws people from all over Europe to see - and stay in - these tiny marvels. Would you spend three days living in a sewer pipe? We didn’t think so either. That is, not until we feasted our eyes on Dasparkhotel. Tiny House Podcast goes international in this episode! Take a listen.
