They might have the smallest house on the block, but one thing's for sure: Lyndsey and Tom's tiny cottage packs a lot of punch! As you float through the entrance, prepare yourself to be enthralled by a plethora of eclectic decor. From the vibrant couch pillows to the cozy lofted workspace, these tiny housers have created a feast for the eyes in this lovable little shelter. 

Notice how the white paneling elongates the room, while a clever use of storage gives the couple's home a wide open feel. "Little House in Little Rock" is colorful, quirky, and classy all at the same time. As Lyndsey describes her house in detail, with materials partly coming from salvaged resources, it's obvious that this tiny houser has a special connection with her abode. A bond that only few home owners will ever know. That's truly the spirit of tiny living! 

The house glows as sunlight beams through a multitude of windows and skylights. Storage was a priority for the couple, and the house has no shortage of cubbies and shelves. But the space that really steals the show, is the couple's gorgeous open kitchen

At Tumbleweed we're always amazed at what "build-it-yourselfers" can do with our plans.

Our homes come in two categories:

  1. Our "House To Go" is on wheels and range from 117 to 172 square feet. 
  2. Our "Cottages" (shown here) are built on foundations and range from 261 to 884 square feet

After seeing Lyndsey and Tom's customizations, we felt inspired! One of our Whidbey layouts now reflects their idea of an open kitchen, which we absolutely adore! 

While the average home is triple its size, "Little House in Little Rock " perhaps has the bigger heart. Thanks to Lyndsey and Tom for inviting us into their charming home and for inspiring us with their tremendous creativity.

    Nara's Fencl on "Dwellz"

    Here's an exclusive inside look at my brand new Fencl on Switchboard Magazine's inaugural episode of "Dwellz."The magazine co-creators Remy Schwartz and Duncan Sullivan filmed and produced this short video and have graciously agreed to share it with Tumbleweed. You'll have to endure my weird haircut and a lot of royalty free hip hop, but it's worth it! 


    "Nara's tiny house is one part sustainable living, one part college credit, and three parts swag.

    After spending her fall semester studying various forms of American alternative housing, she hooked up with Tumbleweed Tiny House Company and got the (literal) wheels moving on a sweet deal: a semester of tiny house occupancy in exchange for promotional blogging.

    Despite black ice, miscommunication with truckers, and a giant blizzard, the house finally made it all the way from Wisconsin to Hampshire College. As of Friday, she lives in it full-time.

    By day, Nara works on sustainable utility solutions and writes about housing. By night, she curls up next to her tiny propane fireplace and dreams of a world where everyone lives within their means. She's happy to show you around her 130 square feet of unfinished pine, but thinks this episode of 'Dwellz' is probably enough.

    Caveat: this will make more sense if you spent your adolescence watching MTV's 'Cribs'."
