What you WISH you knew before building your Tumbleweed...

This past week our 2016 Tumbleweed Workshop presenters and hosts met to discuss the coming year and to share what they WISH they knew before building their Tumbleweed.

As a team passionate about Tiny House RVs, the workshop hosts and presenters collaborated to create an even better workshop for the 2016 season! Get ready to hear some fun personal stories, partake in a few team activities and learn new building practices specific to Tiny House RVs. This year is going to be the best year of workshops yet! 

What do you WISH you knew before building your Tumbleweed?

Our hosts and presenters were happy to share an aw-shucks moment, explaining what they wish they knew before building their Tumbleweed. 

Miranda Aisling is building a Tumbleweed Cypress in Boston, Massachusetts. She will be hosting several Tumbleweed workshops in 2016. More on her build / story here. 

What do you WISH you knew?

"(I didn't realize that) trimming out the roof takes a really looooong time. It is the first stage where any off measurements really start to matter. This is the one area that I didn't budget enough time for, and it set us back a couple weekends." - Miranda

Art Cormier built a Tiny House RV in 2012 to be used as a backyard abode behind his rock climbing gym in Lafayette, Louisiana. He has presented Tumbleweed workshops for the past few years to thousands who wish to achieve their tiny dream. More on his build / story here

What do you WISH you knew?

"I did not think about how useful flat counter space is, and how little is available with standard appliances. For example, my cooktop burners are elevated (not flush with my counter). The available flat counter space for unloading grocery bags in my Tiny House RV is very limited. In retrospect, I would choose appliances with covers or that are flush with my counters to extend my usable space." - Art 
Jenna Spesard built a Tumbleweed Cypress with her partner, Guillaume, in 2014. Over the past year they have towed their Tiny House RV over 22,000 miles across the United States and Canada. In 2016, she will be hosting various Tumbleweed workshops. More on her story / build here.
What do you WISH you knew?
"I carefully planned out my interior design, but one item I forgot was to leave space for my laundry hamper. I don't want to sidestep my hamper every time I enter my bathroom, so our solution is to place the hamper in the shower when we're not showering. In retrospect, I wish I had an allocated space for my hamper that didn't require me moving it in and out of the shower." - Jenna
Guillaume Dutilh built a Tumbleweed Cypress with his partner, Jenna, in 2014. Over the past year they have towed their Tiny House RV over 22,000 miles across the United States and Canada. In 2016, he will be presenting and hosting various Tumbleweed workshops. More on his story / build here.
What do you WISH you knew?
"I wish I had a better game plan for changing a tire on our trailer. It's actually pretty technical since the our Tiny House RV weighs 10,100 pounds fully loaded. It would have been a good idea to practice once before setting out on our trip, but instead I had to learn on a dirt road in the backcountry of Alaska!"- Guillaume
