A Fencl in Puget Sound

And what a beauty it is! Brittany's slightly modified Fencl was built in just over 5 months. The home now sits on the shores of Puget Sound. We can't think a more perfect place for a Tumbleweed! Thanks to here ingenuity, some inspiration from the unstoppable Dee Williams herself and a love for small spaces, Brittany's story is sure to inspire you to take the next step in building your own tiny house.

"Over the internet I bought a set of plans, purchased a tiny fireplace online, and – having it shipped to my address in Olympia – invested myself my future building project enough that I couldn't chicken out.  I was going to do it.  I had made my mind and was going to build myself a tiny, mobile cabin so that I could live anywhere I wanted and whenever I wanted, wherever my future would take me. "

The inside of the Fencl is as individual as she is. Isn't it amazing how you can put so much personality into a small space?

Brittany's approach to building for her Tumbleweed is worth sharing:

"It took me roughly 5 months of building, planning, reading and mistake-making to finish my house.  Taking shop class in 7th grade just wasn't enough carpentry training, so I borrowed numerous construction books from the library and had many a meeting with Dee Williams and other construction-minded friends.  A family friend offered to help me do all the electrical, plumbing and gas work in the house – if only I would supply him with a 6-pack every time he came over.  My parents offered me space to build at the top of the property, so I set up shop and went to work.  I found an 18 foot like-new trailer on craigslist, bought my stove from the scratch-and-dent section at Dickinson, bought a beautifully painted ceramic sink in Mexico, and tried to find as many reused/recycled items as possible."

She sure seems to have made the right choice in building a Tumbleweed Tiny House:

"I have been living in the house for about a year now and absolutely love it.  It is perfect for just one person, with the occasional visitor coming over for a cozy dinner around my tiny table.  While most homeowners spend their own free time cleaning the house, my cleaning routine rarely takes 20 minutes.  I am happy to have as much free time, friend time, and happy hour time as possible to myself!"
