I Nabbed this one from….
I had been contemplated building one of these for my son, and have some semi-related ideas in my indie book “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts, And Whatever The Heck Else We Could Squeeze In Here!”)- avail though TINY YELLOW HOUSE PRESS (micro-independent)- check it out at
Anyway, the idea’s still great, and the hokey-ness factor is high! Love it!
Heck, as an ADULT, it'd even be cool to have one of these, although makin' the bed would be a pain and a half....
As for my book, its received AWESOME/rave reviews and/or coverage in newspapers, tv shows, magazines, blogs, websites, and more, from the likes of….Lloyd Kahn, Katherine Sharpe at Readymade Magazine, Make Magazine, Mimi Zeiger (author of “Tiny Houses”), The author duo of David and Jeanie Stiles, Gregory Johnson of the National Small House Society in Iowa, The Energy Bulletin (.net), Michael Janzen at tinyhousedesign, Kent Griswold at Tinyhouseblog, Jay Shafer of the Tiny Tumbleweed House Company (for my book-related tv/online show “Tiny Yellow House” on youtube), The Stoughton Journal in Stoughton, MA, The Source in Madison, CT, and many, many, many more. (Thank you ALL, so much!).
