Derek “Deek” Diedricksen of Relaxshacks.com, a tiny house builder and enthusiast since 1987 (when he built his first non-fort cabin) has hosted/designed for HGTV, The DIY Network, The History Channel, Make TV, and has had his work featured in The NY Times, Boston Globe, China Times, UK Daily News, Treehugger.com, Design Sponge, and beyond. His designs have also appeared on the ABC Network, Al Jazeera Network, and several other TV shows.
The Tiny House Jamboree is delighted to have Deek returning as a “Two Time Jammer” speaker, sharing his experiences of building tiny shelters all over the world. He will also be showcasing his original artwork in an on site tree house of his own design. Did you get that? A TREEHOUSE will be at The Tiny House Jamboree. YES!
Deek has taught hands-on building workshops around the US since 2010, runs the youtube design channel “RelaxshacksDOTcom”, professionally builds tiny houses, tree houses, and backyard offices for clients, and is the author of “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks”, and the upcoming book (Sept ’15) “Microshelters”. His specialty is building with salvaged and repurposed materials- often in creative, colorful, and whimsical ways.
