What a momentous day for Collin & Joanna. Just this past week, their beautiful Tumbleweed went on a scenic journey to its new home.
After a year of planning, building and making it pretty, Collin and Joanna have accepted an invite to settle in a friends verdant yard. Moving our homes is always a little nerve-wrecking at first. After all, you built it and the idea of a home on wheels built by hand and traveling down the highway is still a new concept for most people. But once you hit the road, you discover just how well-made and road ready the Tumbleweed Tiny homes really are.
Here's wishing these two industrious folks more Tumbleweed adventures. You can read more about their travels here.
We thought it would be a good time to check in with our friends Evan & Gabby who are building a Tumbleweed of their own. One of the most popular questions we receive has to do with water storage. Evan & Gabby have done a superb job finding a place for theirs and concealing it. You can read their insightful comments here.
Our good friends at the Solar Living Institute have a modified Tumbleweed on their grounds in sunny Hopland, CA. So many of our fans ask about using solar power in their future tiny houses, we thought we'd show you how its done by the pros themselves:
The Solar Living Institute has 2 full-time caretakers living in the modified Epu that they built. As you can see, the idea of powering a Tumbleweed is not only feasible, but quite practical as well. You would expect nothing less from the authors of the definitive guide to solar living Solar Living Source Book.
Evan & Gabby are building a beautiful Tumbleweed of their own. We'll be sharing more details from their well-designed blog in the coming days. Until then, read all about the day they took the next step here.
We asked and we received: Yesterday we posted on Facebook that we were interested in finding a few more folks who are currently building a Tumbleweed. Thanksfully, Halley Evans replied. She and her husband are building a Fencland, from the look of things on her blog, they are making fine progress. We look forward to seeing more from these fine Tumbleweeders.
UPDATE: Here is a link to her blog: http://halleyrevans.blogspot.com/ The picture is linked as well. Sorry about that!
