The Barn Raiser: A Tradition of Community

What's in a name? The newest member of the Tumbleweed family, the Amish Barn Raiser, draws on hundreds of years of craftsmanship and community. It's in the long tradition of our Tumbleweed builders, Dave, Ben and Alan, all raised in Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Interestingly, it's an unfinished house which has been expertly raised and sheathed for you.

Amish Barn Raisers are installing roofing, back in 1965.

Why call it the Barn Raiser?

The iconic image of a  “barn raising” is synonymous with Amish life in America. The tradition is born of community needs and a strong belief in the importance of helping one another. With planning and hard work, there are jobs that can be done by one person. Then there are jobs that, no matter how well you plan or how hard you are willing to work, require a community. Raising the walls of a barn is that kind of job.

Cross "Trailer" Off Your Build List

Although we're in the throes of winter, it's already time to start planning for tiny house builds this spring.

Would you like to cross "trailer" off your build list? To save hundreds of hours of preparation and ensure a safe foundation for your home, then take a look at Tumbleweed trailers developed specifically for tiny houses.

Trailers come in all home sizes

Our trailers are available in 18, 20 and 24 foot lengths and work well for full porches (like Elm, Linden models) or corner porches (like Cypress models). The trailers include brakes, lights, underside flashing and special trailer radial tires - and four scissor-leveling jacks are also provided.
