Tumbleweed Tiny House Company

Imagine a house on wheels that you can take with you. Or, a tiny house in your backyard that you could rent for current income
Jay Shafer has been living in a house smaller than some people's closets since 1997. In 1999, he created the Tumbleweed Tiny House company, which builds and sells plans for homes that range in size- from 65 to 774 square feet. Yes, that's right, I said 65 square feet! With 20 different floor plans to choose from and a variety of designs, The Tumbleweed Tiny House company has become a small housing phenomenon. According to Mr. Shafer, "As the economy becomes more worse off, the more plans I tend to sell." While the company only builds homes in California right now, anyone can buy the plans for a Tiny home and build it yourself. For those interested in making life simpler, check out the company's website, Tumbleweed Tiny House Company.

  1. Wow! I have never seen this before. What a great concept. There has to be more affordable housing. If you are willing to live an easier low cost lifestyle, this could be for you. Benefits; low maintance and low cost. I hope their company does well.
