It all begs the question: How much space do you really, truly need to live well?
 Derek Diedricksen in Humble Homes, Simple Shacks

Think American Pickers on caffeine, with a heavy twist of small space design and you almost capture the work of micro-architect Derek Deek Diedricksen. Made from free and recycled goods, his artistic and functional micro-shelters  with names like Hicksaw, Boxy Lady, and Gypsy Junker  challenge conventional assumptions about the American home and consumerism with humor, thrift, and imagination. In this presentation, he will share images of his work and discuss his path to a more independent life through creative re-purposing of free, found, and funky junk. (Weather permitting, he may even bring a tiny house on wheels for us to tour.)
