In The Tumbleweed Family: New House Names

Meg Stephens, Lead House Designer

Dear Tiny House enthusiasts,

As Tumbleweed’s lead designer, I have been expanding our family of House-To-GoTM models. We think of the family names in two ways:  as external models and internal floor plans.

You asked for flexibility with floor plans and home lengths, and the house names should create a logical way to select from 21 different homes.  

Our exterior models are based on nature.

How do these models differ?  The Elm has a nice porch and iconic lancet window to greet you. Our Cypress features an aesthetically-appealing recessed...

A Big Solution for Tiny Houses

Building codes currently prevent us from building a house as small as we want to. We drove around that problem 12 years ago by putting the first Tumbleweed Tiny House on wheels. Now we’re parking our tiny houses squarely within building and zoning codes with our new nationally certified Tiny House RVs.  Our RVs meet over 500 safety codes of electrical, plumbing, construction, heating and fire safety.

Just like you'd expect, you can get conventional financing and insurance on your certified Tumbleweed. And it can be had for as little as $400 per month.


Attention to detail is still the hallmark in every hand crafted Tumbleweed built in our licensed Colorado facility. These days they’re also inspected and tested to meet over 500 safety and building code regulations (NFPA 1192) – and yeah, this house RVs can still travel anywhere.
