Microshelters Includes 59 Creative Cabins, Tiny Houses, Tree Houses, and Other Small Structures

If you’ve been considering building yourself a tiny home or something similar, then you might want to take a look at all your options before you select the place you will build.


That’s where Microshelters by Derek Diedricksen comes in.

A Mix Of The Practical And New Perspectives

The book takes a look at 59 different forms of small home and they’re all completely fascinating. We’d encourage you to read our guide to tiny houses, though, before you build one.

We defy anyone not to dream of a tree house even if you eventually decide that you’d like to live on the ground from a practical perspective.

However, it never forgets that the reader may actually be thinking about building one of these places for themselves.

It’s packed with ideas that can help you actually turn the dream of a tiny home into a real one.

The Limits Of The Book

This is not a complete guide to building a tiny home. It’s a good starting point to identify what you want and need in a small dwelling.

It does, however, make a great complement to such a guide by extending the realms of what is possible and how you can live a life of freedom in harmony with the planet in a myriad of ways.

We really enjoyed this book and think it’s the perfect source of inspiration for a better life.

It’s important to realize that this book is not designed to be a start-to-finish homebuilding project outline or guide. Some customers on Amazon appear to have been under that impression and then ended up disappointed.

You can find Microshelters: 59 Creative Cabins, Tiny Houses, Tree Houses, and Other Small Structures online here.

PRO TIP: Before you radically change your living conditions do some field testing. Test drive a tiny house on AirBnb or rent a tiny camper to see if you can handle the confined space for long periods of time.
