Tumbleweed + Caroline Collective = Awesome!

We've secured the location for our Houston Workshop and it is going to be a blast! We are so excited to be hosting the workshop at  Caroline Collective

Caroline Collective is a coworking space that provides a unique combination of private workspace, public art space, and open desk space. It's the perfect place to host. Plus, it's only a few blocks away from the Wheeler stop on the Houston Light Rail route. We have a few more cool surprises up our sleeves for Houston. Something about food trucks...

Why not join us? Learn more about the workshop here.

Tiny House = Tiny Office

We are very excited to be to owners of the Tumbleweed Tiny House that was part of the Small Worlds exhibition at the wonderful Toledo Museum of Art and we are thrilled to have helped the early childhood programming at the Museum. 

The Andersons and The Lathrop Company did an amazing job building and outfitting the Tiny House. Everyone involved at the Museum and Lathrop made the pick-up easy, painless and a joy.
I first saw a blurb about the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company on the internet back in the early 2000’s and immediately became a fan and began secretly dreaming of owning one. I started following the company website and researching other small houses. 
My family and I desire and seek simplicity, a mark of every Tumbleweed Tiny House. For us, however, this simplicity seems difficult to achieve in these busy days with 2 small children, 2 dogs, and regular gatherings of family and friends in our home, all of which unfortunately do not lend themselves to life in our new Tiny House. 
So, because living in our Tiny House is not at option at this point in our lives, we are happy that we now have a cozy, new office out of which to work. Our new Tiny House is now residing at Developer Town here in Indianapolis, IN. Developer Town is pretty amazing on its own. Software entrepreneurs work in mobile garden sheds inside a giant warehouse that was more or less abandoned. The warehouse is located on the Monon Trail, a great rail-to-trail in Indy that connects downtown to the Northern suburbs. 

The good folks at Developer Town allowed us to move in, set up and get to work. We are grateful to be there and excited to see what is next. We love our Tiny House and look forward to sharing it with our family and friends in the years to come.

The new owner of the XS-House wishes to remain anonymous.
