In this episode of Tiny Yellow House, Derek “Deek” Diedricksen ventures out to Seattle, WA with Christopher Smith (from Tiny: The Movie) to check out a tiny shipping container house built by architect and carpenter Hartman Kable.

Look, free stuff!
9780762771462 Tiny Yellow House Tours the Surf Shack Container House (Plus a Giveaway!)Deek was kind enough to send us two copies of the expanded, now with more swank, edition of his awesome book Humble Homes, Simple Shacks. The new edition has, among other things, a full-color photo section. If you haven’t seen this book yet, you should check it out. It’s as fun and whimsical as it is informative and inspiring. Want a chance to get one of our copies? All you have to do is leave a comment below and tell us if you’ve ever thought about living in a tiny house. If so, why? If not, why not? Please post before noon Pacific time on Monday (10/22) to be eligible. We’ll draw two names from the pool of comments and send you the book. Good luck!
