Keeping Up With Kendall

It is with great pleasure that we re-introduce to you one of our favoriteTumbleweed builders. Her name is Kendall and what she is trying to accomplish with her Lusby build is a great inspiration to all of us at Tumbleweed HQ.

In an attempt to do something about the rampant homelessness she observes daily, Kendall started her own company NerdGirlHomes. She set the goal for herself to build a Tumbleweed to donate to a family in need or have a raffle of the house and give the proceeds to a related cause. As you can see from these pictures, she is well on her way. Kendall embodies the type of industrious spirit and open-minded determination that is the hallmark of a Tumbleweed builder. Her example is worthy of imitation and your support. She is accepting donations of time and funds to assist her build. Please visit her site here:www.nerdgirlhomes.wordpress.com.

About our Tumbleweed builders and deocartors

Jonathan's Fencl is built tough enough to take the cold winters of Flint Michigan. He designed a handsome interior space that includes just about everything you could image needing in a tiny house. Who says you can’t live a full life in a tiny space? He even has a flatscreen TV, perfect for cold nights of Wii playing coziness!

Jeff & Arlene have a great Fencl that now resides in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We really appreciate the attention to details that this dynamic duo incorporated throughout - including a wonderful copper door knocker.

Brittany didn’t let a little obstacle like not having any construction experience stop her from fulfilling the dream. Her Fencl is a favorite of ours. Her interior is light with a lot of personalize touches. I mean, did you see that sink? Just perfect! There’s a lot to love in this wonderful little house

About Design Star

In a series first, the finalists must design the interior and exterior of an entire house - tiny house of just 99 square feet. Each finalist must demonstrate ingenious creativity and savvy space-planning skills in order to execute an inspiring home design that is both comfortable and functional. As carpenters from other HGTV and DIY Network shows arrive to help the finalists complete their work, mentor David Bromstad will coach them as they interact with their crew on-camera, just as they would in a real HGTV show. Watch a sneak peek.
