Deek Spreads Tiny Homes Word in Iceland

From my pal Deek Diedrickson, of Relaxshacks fame:

I brought the remaining copies of your mini book with me to randomly hide in Reykjavik, Iceland, figuring it'd be fun for people to randomly stumble upon them. Three of them are hidden in dry, but semi-visible places around the city- just for fun..... free for the taking by whoever......

Peder Mortensen in Vaudreuil Quebec -
City Mayor attempts to evict him from house he built and lived in for fifty years..


Peder Mortensen, who immigrated to Canada from Denmark in 1959.

The 81-year-old structural engineer said, along with working on Expo 67, building his home in the woods from scratch is one of his proudest achievements.

“Mr. Mortensen has to demolish that and build something that conforms to the town regulations,” Vaudreuil-Dorion Mayor Guy Pilon said.

Calling Mortensen “a symbol for sustainability,” Nicholls referenced a distinctive, low-seated bicycle enclosed in an aerodynamic bright yellow casing that Mortensen had designed and built. He rode it throughout the region as his primary mode of transportation for decades. Mortensen even has a US patent for the bicycle (US 4303256 A.)
