Elizabeth Turnbull’s Tiny House

Just
recently, one of our customers asked me if the workshops really lead people to build their own homes. As you would expect, I always say  yes it does. Here's an example of someone who went to a workshop and then built their own. Check out Elizabeth Turnbull's  house.


It's
good to note that Elizabeth's house is not based on our plans. But that's the point, isn't it? We love that people come to our workshop and get inspired during the Design session on Sunday to build their own.


You can read more about her build here. Make sure to take advantage of our current discounts on our workshops.

Is there a Bodega in your future?



Did you know that the Bodega plans are on sale
this month? It's the smallest of our houses on foundations but it's big
on style. I personally would love to have one with the half loft. Image
how cool that cathedral ceiling would look like in the living room?
Make sure you get your hands on the plans before the month is over. If
you could build a Bodega, where would you put it? What modifications
would you make? Would you add the extra bedroom?

A Little Yellow Fencl in the California Sun

For all
of you who wonder if you could build your own Tumbleweed with little to
no building experience, I'd like you to meet Ella and her Little Yellow
Fencl:


You will love her story. First of all, where can we get neighbor like hers? You've got to read this post. How kind! Ella really lets you in on the process and it shows in every post. Oh, and the pics? AMAZING!





Did you catch this one important detail in her first post? Ella went to the workshop we held in Los Angeles.
We strongly believe that going to the workshop in your area is
an essential first-step if you intend to build a Tumbleweed. Be sure to grab a seat in a city near you.
We'll be adding more cities in the coming months. In the meantime,
spend a few minutes (or hours) checking out Ella's build. No building
skills? No problem! Go Ella, go!

Keeping Up With Kendall

It is with great pleasure that we re-introduce to you one of our favoriteTumbleweed builders. Her name is Kendall and what she is trying to accomplish with her Lusby build is a great inspiration to all of us at Tumbleweed HQ.

In an attempt to do something about the rampant homelessness she observes daily, Kendall started her own company NerdGirlHomes. She set the goal for herself to build a Tumbleweed to donate to a family in need or have a raffle of the house and give the proceeds to a related cause. As you can see from these pictures, she is well on her way. Kendall embodies the type of industrious spirit and open-minded determination that is the hallmark of a Tumbleweed builder. Her example is worthy of imitation and your support. She is accepting donations of time and funds to assist her build. Please visit her site here:www.nerdgirlhomes.wordpress.com.
