Introducing: the Hickshaw

In response to our DIY Movie Making theme, Derek “Deek” Diedricksen sent us this first episode of Tiny Yellow Houses, a series he’s doing on backyard shackitecture, this one featuring his “Hickshaw,” a movable small structure designed to be used as a backyard hang-out space/tiny office or festival sleeping space.

Derek also has a self-published, hand-drawn book of his wacky, whimsical backyard structures, called Humble Homes… You can order it on his blog, Relax Shacks.

More pics from the book after the jump.

  1. (Blush)- thanks so much Gareth(!) n’ Math- I really appreciate it, and the feedback on this little d.i.y. video has been surprisingly positive- esp. for something with a straight-wingin’ it narration approach, and where we never shot more than 2-3 takes (if even that- most were one takes as we didn’t have much time to mess around).
    Anyway, subsequent shoots were going to take place in Mid-april, but I just talked to Steve Sherrick from Obscure Knowledge Productions (http://www.obscureknowledge.com ) and he has a window back from vegas in March- so we might get crackin’ on two more episodes sooner than later….

    Again- thanks so much!
