Tumbleweed Tiny House

Tumbleweed Tiny House - XS Design

As you may already know the first Tumbleweed Tiny House was built by Jay Shafer who founded the company.

Here’s what’s special about a Tumbleweed tiny house...

  • Many different designs to choose from
  • Carefully thought out plans and architecture
  • Lots of built in storage and space management
  • Most beautiful look and feel
  • High quality materials that will last a long time
  • Excellent customer support and access to resources
  • There are plenty of these homes out there already built

Jay started to live in tiny houses because of a few main reasons. I’ll quote him from the introduction of his fun to read book:

“I live in a house smaller than some people’s closets. My decision to inhabit just 90 square feet arose from some concerns I had about the impact a larger house would have on the environment and because I just do not want to maintain a lot of unused or unusable space. My house meets all of my domestic needs without demanding much in return. The simple, slower lifestyle it affords is a luxury for which I am continually grateful.”

The Politics of Tiny Houses with Jay Shafer

He was recently interviewed by George Packard of CuriouslyLocal.com.

You'll hear him talk about the freedom that living small gives you and how the most difficult part is getting rid of all of your stuff. You know, when you're at the point that you have quite a bit of it collected.

He'll tell you about codes and zoning including reasons why the laws are so restrictive. Then he'll go into the sacred geometry that's behind all of the designs that are available to you from Tumbleweed Houses.

I recommend The Small House Book if you find tiny houses interesting and want to learn more about them. It’s an enjoyable and easy to read book on all the details on building and living in a small space. It costs $29.99 and is worth every penny. You’ll find a great deal of useful information throughout it. You can buy the book here. (Link opens in new window)

He has inspired many people to consider, build and purchase smaller homes because of his vision and the way he lives.

Tumbleweed Houses

Tumbleweed Tiny House - XS Model
This is their smallest model at just 65 square feet. Easiest to tow and maneuver so it's a better choice if you plan on moving a lot.

Tumbleweed Epu
This one is 89 square feet and is also usually built on a trailer. It has a nice front porch and is obviously a bit roomier than the XS.

Tumbleweed Weebee
Tumbleweed Weebee is a tiny house that can be built on a trailer. Mobile but doesn't lack beauty, class and function.
