Whereas I tend to focus on pint-sized prefabricated structures, the NPR piece, as the title relays, is all about building-it-yourself and it profiles two big names in the DIY tiny house movement: Derek “Deek” Diedricksen and Peter King.
I was unfamiliar with Massachusetts-based Diedricksen and his web series, Tiny Yellow House (aptly described as Wayne’s World meets This Old House) until catching the NPR piece. It’s truly great stuff especially if you like a sense of humor (and bongos) injected into your DIY building tutorials.
So if you want to have Shaquille O'Neill for a sleepover — I'm not sure why you would — someone up to 7 feet long could fit in this structure. It is possible to sleep three people in here, but just beware if it's family burrito night.
