Say Yes! to Ella

 

Another Tumbleweed rises! Our friend and fan Ella just landed a sweet spot in the latest issue of Yes! Magazine. Ella's Fencl tiny house is coming along nicely and it's good to see her getting some press. You can read all about her build on her blog. One of my favorite details about Ella is that she has never built a thing before and it was attending one of our workshops that gave her the impetus to make the leap. Now look at her Fencl and tell me the workshops don't work. Sign up now to attend one in your area. Go Ella!

Amazing Guests at Our Small House Workshop in Boston!

Holy mega, kick-butt, over-the-top, line-up for the Boston Tumbleweed Workshop!

If you haven't signed up yet for our Boston Tiny House Building Workshop, May 19th and 20th, 2012, here are a few reasons to get your kiester in gear! This one will be hosted by our own Derek "Deek" Diedricksen, tiny house/shelter builder, Tiny Yellow House TV host, and author of "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks"....

We just added more guests to make this workshop an amazing learning experience!

JOHN HANSON MITCHELL- author of "Living At The End Of Time". John built and lived in a tiny, off-the-grid, Victorian cottage in the woods, not far from Walden Woods, and wrote the aforementioned novel about his experiences. This book is incredible and inspiring, not to mention one of the best I've read in awhile. 

MARIAH COZ- of www.cometcamper.wordpress.com- who rescued a vintage Avalon camper, and is in the process of revamping it to serve as a traveling classroom to exemplify small and green living. Mariah's great! She's high energy, and very motivated to tour with her mobile dwelling and spread the word about living lightly. 

And again, we'll be visiting the original Tumbleweed (an Epu), built in the early 1990s. 

Sun depending, Deek might bust out one of his solar ovens to demo on the tiny house lot in downtown Boston. 

We are looking forward to sharing an awesome workshop with all our New England tiny house fans. Click here to get your Boston workshop tickets now!
