Education Woodworking


Participants in Derek “Deek” Diedricksen’s Tiny House Summer Camp in early July ranged in age from 13 to 62. A teenage woodworker and his dad came all the way from Oakland, California. There were three Vermonters in attendance who planned to build tiny houses and put them on trailers. When the long weekend was over, two new structures were nearly complete, which means there will likely be more space for aspiring builders to sleep in next summer if Diedricksen decides to do another Tiny House Summer Camp. Deek has another weekend workshop coming up in November at his home in Stoughton, MA. Check his site for details.
