The year was 1999 when our first tiny home was mounted to a trailer. The little home was named Tumbleweed because it had roots and was mobile at the same time. And in that moment, the seeds for a housing revolution were planted.
Experienced and talented tiny house builders and owners teach you in our “Dream Big. Live Tiny.” workshops how to join the tiny house movement and get started building your perfect tiny house to fit your needs.
