A $2000 Two-Story A-Frame Cabin….

(update- we now have a full pdf framing-plan-set for this cabin- we'll have it on the site soon, but if interested, email us- newenglandrockpress@gmail.com or PM us through the "Derek Diedricksen" facebook page. Plan set is $25.00 and we'll send you an e-set of them). Also, check out our "Transforming A-Frame Cabin" plans- link to the left on this page).

Also, "Microshelters", my new book is out now! LOADED with ideas on super-affordable backwoods building, shelters, shacks, tiny houses, tree houses, and more.....

If you want to check out "The Transforming A-frame Vacation Cabin" we built in Tennessee, and a few pages from the plans- head to this link…. http://www.relaxshacks.blogspot.com/2014/02/deek-david-stiles-and-joe-everson-team.html

"The Dart" is a two-level A-frame, or "Half A-Frame" cabin that can be simply, and quickly, built for around $2000. I designed this cabin, and Sean Carey laid out the plans from my initial sketches and specs. The plans look GREAT and I can't wait to share them!

Anyway, here's a video sneak peak of Phase One of building this cabin while out at the "Southern Shows" Home and Garden Expo, where I co-presented on Tiny Houses with Lloyd Kahn.

  7. I'm just beginning my deep dive into tiny-house-world. Watched the video -- wondering how well that half A-frame house will stand up to high wind, torrential rain, cooooold winters. How much insulation can you stuff into that structure without pushing the humans out? If you face the roof surface into the southern sun, could you cover it in solar panels?

  8. if you had built a 4 foot wall straight up then the angle for the bathroom, you would have greatly added comfort to that area. (no wasted boards) the roof rafters would match on both sides. if you used the clear stuff at 4 foot all the way up you have no need of that window upstairs.

  10. Hey Deek,
    Been following you on you tube for a while now,...LOVE everything you've done!! Just bought the a-frame plans. I've been looking at all kinds of alternative housing ideas for some time now,..tiny homes have always stood out for me. I know that many of your structures are not on trailers in the same way that Jay Shafers are, but I had a question that's been bugging me,..maybe you could answer. I see a lot of trailers out there with the flip down ramps in the back. Always wondered why nobody uses those as the base for a flip down deck/porch. Is it an unbalanced weight thing, or are the drop downs made in a way that's not strong enough? Just curious. Again,..love all that you're doing. If my job and finances would have allowed I would be at the workshop in Tenn. Hope to see some vids from that. I'll be there in spirit!! Later,..Craig in Indiana.

  26. hey there Relaxshacks and Deek and Dustin! My Name is Wendy and I am 48 empty nester. well does it count if one of the kids move back in? I have wanted to live tiny for quite some time, living in a small one bedroom for 7 years, I recently find myself in a 2 bedroom mobile home. and frankly I hate all the space compared to my apartment, my grand kids are getting larger and more and more are being born so I figured Grandma should not be in a small tiny apartment, so I took this place, so they can run around. only trouble is, they hardly ever come lol. I have drawn my tiny home so many times, I can see it in 3D anytime in my minds eye. I should mention I have a disease in my back and more, but I am walking and talking now and I am not afraid to use hammer n nails! I play our home town hockey team's lottery each and every week with the only wish to use the money to build my tiny home. there are 2 here in my town but really they are mini homes, just short ones. I want a shed type roof that goes end to end with windows and upper deck in the middle, you can see it Deek, I just know u can. I saw this design from a video in New Zealand and fell in love. Is there anyway you can do a workshop here in Nova Scotia?? I promise you would get many many people sign up. We need some guidance and I can think of none better. do you know that some out there are using the tiny house workshop for evil doing? Im afraid to trust others. please contact me when you can. I see there is not much up to date info here on this page so I hope to God it is still active. I need to learn so much. I jumped too many times without knowledge and failed. i dont have land per say but once i build, it wont be hard to find a place to put it. most cannot envision what the home will look like and think its just going to be a shack. and not a good shack! lol I want to have wind and solar and rain catchment system while still being able to get internet. I can raise the money for you to come here. If I know you are serious, I can fill our whole soccer field with interested people who will pay to take your workshop and maybe that can be my payment lol. wendyallen@hotmail.com is my email. please Deek may we begin a new movement in Amherst Nova Scotia???? I look forward to hearing from you soon. I am very interested. thank you so much for what you do and maybe we could even consider having a full time workshop here with me working and help running it. I have college education in accounting so my abilities would be useful for organizing. thanks so much for listening. please write soon!
