Here we go! Welcome to our 3rd Virtual Tumbleweed Contest. The theme this time is 'The Perfect Retreat'. We are looking for boards that showcase what your perfect tiny house retreat would look like. Here are the rules:
1. Build a board on Pinterest with "VTC3" in the title. That way, I can find it when I search.
2. Once you've build your dream virtual Tumbleweed, send an email to email@example.com with "VTC3" in the subject line.
3. Pinterest pinboards can be submitted starting today, August 21, 2012 through Sunday, August 26, 2012.
4. Have fun!
On Monday, August 27, 2012, I will post the top 10 boards as determined by our staff. You can vote for you favorite board through Wednesday, August 29, 2012, 5:00 pm PST. The winner will be announced on Friday, August 31st, 2012.
I can't wait to see what you fine, tiny house lovin' folks come up with!
Here's another couple on their way to a Tumbleweed life: Pete & Erin. Bookmark their blog so you can follow them on their Fencl build.
Here's an update from our friends over at Boneyard Studios:
I left for Brazil just as everything started happening on the lot. I promised I wouldn’t disappear for a month but try and stay engaged in the project while here. Thus, I write this from a hammock in rural Northeast Brazil where we’re staying with an amazing community leader and learning about the Xukuru’s fight to regain their territory here in Brazil. While feeling grateful for the opportunity to be here, I’m also sad that I’m missing out on all the work that is being done on the lot. Fortunately, Tony and Brian have been keeping me updated via photos, email and Skype.
Here’s a recent update I received from Tony about the past week:
Brian and I have spoken to a lot of people passing through the alley and the feedback we’re getting is very positive. People are excited about the garden beds and curious about tiny houses. I know you feel like you’re missing out, but a lot of what we’ve been doing is dirty, sweaty grunt work. The good news is that we should be ready for the fun part of designing and building out the interior of yours when you get back.
Check out the photos below – they’ve really made progress, and I’m excited to get back and start working on this project again!
Head over to Barnyard Studios to see the rest of the pictures.
