Workshops Produce New Tiny House Experts!

When people attend tiny house workshops, they begin by introducing themselves and their reasons for wanting to go tiny. Sometime earlier they had discovered tiny houses and tiny dwellers online, and been inspired by the possibilities of a house-on-wheels. Now they are spending time with tiny experts and other like-minded people in person, and the reality of going tiny seems within reach.

At Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, we are thrilled to watch the co-mingling during workshops. Afterwards, the entire tiny house community cheers as new tinies get built and people transform into experts! Here are three people who have become tiny living influencers and leaders in their own rights.

Finding a Place For Your Tiny House: Renting

So let’s say you’ve just built a wonderful Tumbleweed. Construction is over and you’re ready to move in, but where do you put it? Where can you live in your wee house on wheels?

Renting space on someone else’s property may not work for everyone, but it can be a great solution for those who don’t have the resources to purchase property of their own. I currently rent in my tiny house so I’d like to share some tips on how to find the perfect place for you.

Make a Picture Portfolio

Take good pictures of all aspects of your house and put them in a professional looking format so you can immediately show people what you’re talking about. Not only will the visual get them on the right page but having something organized to tell the story of your house makes you seem that much more credible. Carry it with you everywhere and show it off. Make sure to have pictures of everything you would tell prospective landlords about; water and electric connections, your propane tank, toilet etc. You may want to include some construction shots at the end.
