A Harbinger in the heart of North Carolina


Lovely, isn't it? We are thrilled to showcase this stunning Harbinger, built by one of our satisfied customers.

Where do we begin? That gorgeous lavender bathroom with the classic black & white tile? The perfect back porch? The bright and sunny loft area? If I had to guess, I'd say your eyes where probably drawn to the killer orange kitchen. Love it!


Here's what the customer had to say about her Tumbleweed:

"Now that I’ve lived in the home for a few months, I can’t imagine needing anything bigger.  My neighbors, who have much larger homes, probably talk it up more than I do, and I never want for visitors who enjoy relaxing in my cozy living room or out on the deck.   There are plenty of small spaces to be had in my town, but few are single-family, energy-efficient homes.  I’m glad to have built a Tumbleweed from the ground up and to be able to live in a way that supports my values, particularly in a time when that can be so hard to do."





Feast your eyes on all this small house goodness! The Harbinger is 404 square feet downstairs with a loft above. It is one of our nine cottages ranging from 261 square feet to 843 square feet. These cottages are designed to be built on a foundation and meet the International Building Code requirements. See all nine here.

Is there a Fencl in your future?

One of the joys for me of working at Tumbleweed is getting to see a finished
house. It's one thing to look at those expertly designed plans on paper,
it's another thing to see those plans translated into an actual
dwelling. I had that opportunity late in the summer: I got to walk my
way through a finished Fencl. Let me tell you, I just love that house!  I
love seeing the craftsmanship, feeling the attention to details and
knowing that someone was about to take ownership of a work of art. Well,
guess what? We've got another Fencl ready for a new owner!

This
customized Fencl is just stunning. It's rare that we have a finished
home available and we wanted you, our loyal fans, to have an opportunity
to purchase this masterpiece. There's no need to wait 3-5 moths for it.
We can ship it this week. Here are the details:

  • The house features a standing seam roof, which is an upgrade over
    the standard corrugated aluminum sheet roof. Standing seam roofs have
    incredibly long lives.
  • All the windows are insulated, double pane windows with tempered glass. They are also well-finished.
  • In the Great Room we added a removable and adjustable desk that can be lowered as a seat, or completely removed.
  • The bathroom has a shower and a low flush RV toilet
  • The loft has an opening window and a skylight. From the reverse angle you can see the shelving in the loft.
  • Not only are there shelves in the great room,  but the closet also
    has shelving. Our builder Bill, made them adjustable, so you can remove
    or resize as needed.
  • The kitchen includes a fridge/freezer, 2 burner propane stove top,
    kitchen sink, air conditioner, custom drawers, cabinets and more
    shelving.
  • The mini fireplace has a dual exhaust so that it brings air from outside, and doesn't burn up oxygen in the house.
  • We added an air conditioner to the back of the house.

Upgrades include:

  • Air conditioner
  • Standing seam roof
  • Adjustable shelving
  • Custom kitchen cabinetry
  • Extra electrical capacity

The price is $53,997 and the upgrades are being added on for free.
