“Inge Wegge and Jørn Ranum built and then spent a winter living in this remote cabin, surfing frigid Norwegian waves at a secluded beach miles away from civilization. Bliss. During that winter they cleared up more than three tonnes of marine litter from that beach and what they couldn’t use, they stored away – in case they needed to repurpose it later on down the line. …

(They)… built it out of trash and driftwood they found on the beach and lived in it for a whole winter. That winter they cleared over three tonnes of rubbish. This is a little vignette of their home. It’s epic.…”

Tiny House Built of Recycled Materials in England

Hi there,

My Dad was featured in one of Lloyds books, Tiny Homes, for building the wooden yurt Big Sky Retreat.

Recently he has been building another cabin called Big Sky Lookout, which is smaller than the yurt, but still made up of reused and recycled stuff. I made a short film following his progress along the way.

Many thanks,

Red Evans

My Photo Exhibit of Driftwood Architecture Opening This Weekend

I’m doing my first ever photo exhibit, opening this Saturday at the Bolinas Museum. It’s part of a 2-month-long exhibit on the subject of makeshift architecture, and features artists Jay Nelson, Whiting Tennis, and Eirik Johnson, along with my photos of driftwood beach shacks along the northern California coast.

Rick Gordon has processed and printed 24 14 by 18″ prints and printed them here on our new Epson Stylus Pro 4900 ink jet printer. They look pretty darn good! The ingenuity of anonymous beachcomber artists.

The opening is this Saturday, April 2nd. At 2PM, I’ll talk a bit about my background and our 46 years of publishing books on building and fitness; at 3PM, there’s a reception.

$100 Pallet Floor Replaces Ugly Carpet

“We had this weird windowless room with no purpose so we thought to make it a pantry. It needed quite a bit of work to come around to the functional side. Some shelving went in but the floor was a train wreck – awful cheap disgusting carpet.

After that got ripped out, I had to figure out what to put in its place that was sturdy, looked good, and was inexpensive. After visiting a pallet rehabber, the idea was hatched.…”

Boston Couple Build Tiny Home on Wheels From Movie Sets

“They call it their tiny house mansion.
Chloe Barcelou and Brandon Batchelder have spent the last five years in New England staying at various apartments, hotels and the houses of family and friends – but now they have a home that can follow wherever they need to go.
The creative couple built their new tiny home, which is designed to collapse so it can be towed, almost entirely out of the movie sets where they’ve worked.
It was Chloe who came up with the idea for the couple to build a house on wheels…”
