Who wants to build a tree house?

Microshelters:  59 Creative Cabins, Tiny Houses, Tree Houses and Other Small Structures by Derek “Deek” Diedricksen
Who doesn’t want to build a secret fort or tree house?  I’m thinking of building one on my apartment balcony so I can get away from it all.
I’ve always enjoyed Deek’s sense of humor and have followed his website, relaxshacks, for several years.  He's got some Youtube videos out as well and I bet taking a class with him would be lots of fun. 

I enjoyed this book and felt like maybe I could actually be successful building a small structure.  Fine, I ‘d probably mess it up but eventually I think I'd achieve something I could be proud of and this book would help me get there. 

Also I really like the ‘tiny words of wisdom’ from other tiny project people throughout the book and to have all their websites at the end of the book. 

Now I did have to force myself to read through the blueprints at the end of the book (blueprints are kind of boring unless you actually need them) even though I’d need help with those particular projects just like Deek suggested (it’s like he knows me).  Actually I’d need help with most of the projects in the book but Deek made me feel like I could try and fail and still be happy with what I did.  Thanks, Deek. 

This would be a great book (don't go for an ebook with this one) for any coffee table (even on a table you built yourself) and I will recommend it to others.  I’d give this 4 out of 5 stars, a well liked book for me.
