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!
