Review quote

"Author Derek Diedricksen zeroes in on the DIY art of small living in his new book, Microshelters. What he finds is a highly motivated, occasionally eccentric community of hobbyists who challenge themselves to pack tons of functionality into spaces that are barely bigger than parking spots."
