Checking in with Austin.

Austin may be our youngest Tumbleweed builder, but his drive and enthusiasm speak to a maturity far beyond his years. It's been a while since we checked in on his progress so I thought I'd show you a few images of his build. I spoke to Austin at our last open house and he promises to have some fresh images for us soon. In the meantime, check out his great gallery here.

Fun in Olympia

This weekend we were in Olypmia, Washington for a workshop. We choose Olympia because our very first customer ever, Dee Williams, has done an amazing job promoting tiny houses in her area.

Dee invited the entire class to come see her tiny Tumbleweed, and shared her story about living in a tiny home. I really enjoyed hearing Dee share her story about the Jay Leno Show. Recognizing that she was going to be seen by millions, she panicked that her house may not be legal. In a rush, she called the building department the day before taping the show. A very confused building department employee called her back within 24 hours and said everything was OK. So, with full confidence, she was all set to go and tell her story to the world ... only to be bumped last minute because Lindsey Lohan made a surprise appearance after getting out of rehab! Dee is still waiting for Leno to call back.

Is that a Popomo at the beach?

Why yes it is! We'll have more images of this newly built beauty coming soon. I thought I'd just tease you a little. You can get a copy of the plans here. Wait until you see what we did with the interior. There's a reason it's at the beach. Oh, to be at the beach today...

The Evolution of a Tiny House

Slow and steady wins the tiny house. Such is the philosophy that Laura and her husband have in mind while they build their Tumbleweed. These two full-time workers have been building their tiny house on the weekends and in their spare time.

Their blog, Life in 120 Square Feet, chronicles their work and is a great resource for anyone who wants to get started on their own Tumbleweed. I really appreciate the Flickr slideshow, which takes you from the beginning of their build to the present.
