The 5 coolest tiny homes in America
Derek “Deek” Diedricksen is a tiny-house aficionado who has scoured the country for dozens of the coolest examples of the microliving trend. In his new book, “Microshelters: 59 Creative Cabins, Tiny Houses, Tree Houses, and Other Small Structures,” he highlights his quirkiest finds.
