You may have noticed some new names & faces amongst our crew. Let's get acquainted with one of them: Paprika Clark aka Pepper. Honestly, we couldn't ask for a more energetic and enthusiastic person to join the Tumbleweed family.
Pepper has been a fan of tiny houses for a while now. Her love for designing houses started when she was just 6 years old when she noticed an ad for a new subdivision in the newspaper. With a 3D image of the house she wanted firmly fixed in her creative mind, she went on to design every detail. As she grew, so did her interest in all kinds of building practices.
5 years ago she decided to really focus her attention on the world of tiny houses. While she appreciates all the different types of houses out here, Tumbleweed really struck a cord with her. As she says it, "The Tumbleweed idea struck me as an amazing solution that had real potential to be both truly green and accessible to more people financially and aesthetically than anything I had seen before." Her thirst for knowledge led her to one of our workshops in Sebastopol. Little did she realize that one day she would be leading one of those workshops herself!
Like most people who are attracted to our homes, Pepper loved what she saw but wanted to personalize the experience. After carful thought, she knew what she needed to do. Pepper started her own company and started to build a tiny house based on the Lusby plans. With the help of some talented friends and neighbors, she has completed her first build and is ready to do more. One of the things that she is excited about is the workshop schedule that she will embark on in 2012.
Last fall she was a guest at our Santa Rosa workshop. With house in tow, her enthusiastic presentation was only exceeded by a tour of her splendid tiny house. Her drive, creativity and energy is creative and genuine. We are looking forward to having her as a part of our workshop crew.
