A book to get the juices flowing!
on March 11, 2016
This is NOT a DIY, How-to book! Derek does NOT promise to tell you how to build YOUR tiny house, nor does he give you the exact plans, dimensions, etc for one. What he HAS done with this book (that I love!) is show his humour & creativity. Derek is an artist that sees things in ways that not all can & that is what makes this book fun! This book is one of those concept books or a dreamers book. By that I mean that he has given us a view into his world, shown us his sketches, his 'ideas' & basically said, "wouldn't this be so cool?!" Some of these sketches he has built on his own land, some are just ideas that WE can take and run with. There is no reason you cannot expand on an idea and make it a reality or just a fun hangout in the backyard! But that is what is so cool about this book, Deek is showing us the reader that there is no limitations on the imagination. The only limitation is your own! Enjoy his humour, for he has a wacky one at that. I just couldn't help laughing when I read this. It brought me back to my childhood, the days of building forts with sheets and chairs, etc, when it was raining outside or building 'clubhouses' with neighbourhood kids & scraps we found!
