When Dave Fisher says he has a family business, he means it.
The Fishers grew up Amish in Pennsylvania,
and true to their roots, are very talented when it comes to carpentry: they
just finished building their first Tumbleweed Fencl in about two weeks.
Dave and his
brothers have been in the construction industry since 1993. Believe it
or not, his favorite project from the Montana
days was a subdivision. They got to build all of the houses in the
development, ranging from about 1,500 to 3,000 square feet in size. Now the brothers
have scaled down significantly. Their company, The Shed Yard, specializes in high quality storage sheds, garages, gazebos, and
other outdoor buildings and accessories.
Outside the Fencl in snowy Colorado
Only recently, however, did it occur to the brothers to try their hand at a tiny house. "Someone approached me
at a home show in Denver
and told me to look up Tumbleweed. I went to the website, and thought, I'd love to build one of these."
After attending the Santa
Rosa workshop in October, the brothers met up with
Tumbleweed's Paul Farr. They talked for hours, and made a decision: the
brothers would build a Fencl, and thus be added to the growing network of
Tumbleweed builders- great news for Colorado! Given the company's experience with building small
structures, tiny houses made a lot of sense. "The
great part about building the tiny house was that we could do it inside the
warehouse. We could stay warm in the Colorado
winter, and didn't have to have any building permits- we'd never experienced
that with other kinds of house building."
This is the first time they have built anything on a trailer, but it
didn't prove too much of a challenge for the intrepid brothers. They've got team work down to a science: Dave's brother Ben handled most of
the wood cutting, while Dave preferred the assembly portion. Ben also handled
the wiring, having experience wiring large houses. Alan, Dave and Ben's
brother-in-law, managed the interior and put some of the finishing touches on. Dave's
sister and his wife helped also a great deal, running errands and handling
other business. The only person to work on the house who wasn't related to the
Fishers was the plumber!
Keeping warm inside- look at that beautiful wood!
While the house is nearly identical to the Fencl plans, they
did make a few modifications. The house is wired to easily accommodate solar
panels, and the low-flush toilet can be replaced with a composting toilet. Dave
wants customers to be able to customize the house with ease, and to encourage
off-the-grid living. If he can convince his wife, he might even build a self-contained
Fencl of his own.
