Congrats to MAKE video contributor Derek “Deek” Diedricksen for the piece about him and his micro-homes in this past Sunday’s New York Times. Really nice profile and slideshow of some of Deek’s projects. I like the characterization of his Tiny Yellow House show as “This Old House meets Wayne’s World.” Excellent!

    I think the author of the New York Times story did a great job of describing Deek’s many skills and interests.
    Cheers!
