Deek and the Geek Enjoy Tiny Treasures
It turns out that my wife and Deek Diedricksen are both from the same small town in Connecticut. I'm out here visiting my in-laws, and he was at his parents' house on Tuesday, so he gave me a tour of the tiny house village that's been fueling his interest in wee dwellings ever since he was a kid. Two claustrophiles presented with a few dozen little houses can, it turns out, make the old "kids in a candy store" analogy seem like a total understatement. While Deek's way too cool to be squealing and skipping about, I could tell he wanted to and that he envied my lack of inhibition.
I love hanging out with Deek. In fact, I'd probably like hanging out with a lot of folks far less charismatic than he is, so long as they were willing to enable (indeed, feed) my inner-tiny-house-geek.
The village is near Madison, CT, just off Boston Post Road. I don't want to get any more specific than that, as I get the feeling that residents would rather not have hoards of squealing claustrophiles skipping up and down their streets. If you're geek enough, you'll find it anyway.
