If you’ve dreamed of breaking away from the pack … owning a home without a heart-stopping mortgage bill, and having the freedom to save for your retirement and live a simpler, more green life, … then this will be the most exciting message you’ll ever read.
Today in America, 1 in 5 homeowners owe more money than what their home is worth! Many people are literally walking away from their homes because of this tragedy. But that’s only part of the story!
According to CoreLogic’s National Foreclosure Report, 4 million homes were have been foreclosed since the downtown in 2008.
Just think, all those months of making the house note, paying steep utility bills, property taxes, and maintenance – up in smoke. Don’t you deserve better than this?
People were sold a bill of goods that they need more home than they can afford and now their finances, relationships and lives are in chaos.
Many end up begging friends and family to help them out and many are barely surviving. Why should you play this deadly game of survival if you really don’t have to?
And did you know that the average price of a home in America today, is a whopping $203,500? That’s 20 … to … 30 years of being stuck with payments, sky-high utilities, creeping property taxes, neighborhood fees and regulations!
Look at this:
Mortgage payments almost always cut into 30% to 40% of your income … and that of course doesn’t include taxes, insurance, or maintenance costs. With so much of your money going into your home, you’re missing out on money for investments, travel, continued education, more time with kids, or time to pursue your hobbies.
You only live once … is it really worth it to strap this burden onto your back?
It’s a high-stakes, high-risk game of keeping up with the Joneses … that puts your retirement … your survival … your happiness … and your freedom to really live life on the chopping block!
Isn’t the American dream really about feeling financially secure, owning a home and being happy?
Being shackled with debt till the grave doesn’t sound like the American dream to me.
Do you realize that most people will not have any real money to retire on? It’s true. Look at these sobering retirement statistics:
Take any 100 people at the start of their working careers and follow them for 40 years until they reach retirement age, and here’s what you’ll find, according to the Social Security Administration: only 1 will be wealthy; 4 will be financially secure; 5 will continue working, not because they want to but because they have to; 36 will be dead; and 54 will be dead broke – dependent on their meager Social Security checks, relatives, friends, even charity for a minimum standard of living. That’s 5% successful, 95% unsuccessful.
Which group do you plan on being in?
But that’s only the beginning because social security is for all intents and purposes – BROKE!
That said, depending on social security to get you by will be sketchy at best.
That’s why it’s vital you take action now to make lifestyle changes so you won’t be a burden on your children or find yourself wondering where your next meal will come in your twilight years.
But there are environmental issues to consider as well. The average American home consumes about 75% of an acre of forest and produces about 7 tons of construction waste! And … it emits 18 tons of greenhouse gases every year!
Compare that to a Tumbleweed home which is made with less than 12,000 pounds of building materials each, and less than 300 pounds went to the landfill. Plus … they produce less than 900 pounds of greenhouse gases during a typical Washington winter!
What’s more, a small home can fit into a parking space, which is wonderful if you wish to pick up and move. That’s something you cannot do with a sprawling suburban home.
A Tumbleweed home ranges from 117 square feet to 172 square feet, and you can move as desired; the plumbing and electricity set up of our designs allows you to do this.
You can enjoy the adventure of traveling the country, by settling in various spots across the country. In fact, we’ve traveled from Canada to Mexico, and from San Francisco to New York with our small homes. Can you do that with your current home?
Picture the freedom of being able to pick up and move as you wish. Once you get tired of an area, you can simply move – with a small home it’s now possible!
Hello, my name is Steve Weissmann - I'm the president and owner of Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. You probably have many questions about how to build a small house and if this is really even a good idea. I think it’s always a good idea to find out a little about someone before you do business with them. So let me show you why you should listen to us here at Tumbleweed …
We are the education leader in the Small House Movement. Our small house designs and ideas have been featured in many places such as MSNBC, Fox News, ABC News and the front page of Yahoo.
We've literally taught 1000's of people across the nation on small house living and design. Our home designs are tried and true which means we know they’ve livable and workable. We've learned from over a decade of experience the do's and dont's about building your tiny abode.
No wonder we have more web traffic than any other home builder in the USA.
The idea of living in small homes that are transportable is fast becoming mainstream. But building a house on a trailer isn't something most people know about. As such so many people have requested that we make a DVD that would teach anyone how to do it.
We have done exactly that. Introducing the Tumbleweed Construction Video. There is nothing anywhere like it.
You will learn all the ins and outs – everything you need to turn your wish of affordable housing without the baggage into reality through our DVD,the Tumbleweed Construction Video.
How to build a small home for just 25 grand!
How to choose the right trailer and attach your home correctly
How to attach your roof to your home so it doesn't blow off when driving on the highway.
You’ll discover why you really don’t need to own a plot of land to own one of these small homes. With the methods we teach, your home can move with you.
The types of building materials you’ll need
You’ll find out how to set up plumbing that really works.
Plus much, much more!
The bottom line though is this: There isn’t a speck of fluff, silly theory or useless “filler” content in this video. This is information that has been tested and proven to work in the real world.
And it’s all so easy, too.
Just like following a recipe. You start with step one and follow along, taking the tools you need right out of the book as you go. And before you know it, you’ll have a beautiful small home you’ll absolutely treasure.
But maybe you’re the only one on board so far with the idea of living in a small home. Maybe your wife or husband doesn’t like the idea and thinks this is something only the pros can do. Show him or her the video and watch as their opinion begins to shift. We clearly explain how young women like Ella Jenkins and Brittany Yunker were able to build her own home with no construction experience.
Here’s another big reason why owning a small home makes sense …
Plus … it’s important to realize the small house movement has absolutely exploded in popularity – it’s gone international!
And if that doesn’t shine a light on the advantages of living in a small home, then look at this:
The resale value of American houses of 2,500 square feet or more appreciated 57 percent between 1980 and 2000, while houses of 1,2000 or less appreciated 78 percent! (Elizabeth Rhodes, Seattle times, 2001) Small houses appreciated $37 more per square foot!
“instant curb appeal.” – Bethany Little, New York Times
“one hundred square feet of bliss.” – Thelma Gutierrez, CNN
“built to last.” – Craig LaMoult, Chicago Tribune
"Move-in-ready gems …” – Denise Gee, Better Homes & Gardens
“extraordinary attention to detail.” – Hannah Bloch, New York Times
Can you imagine the thrill of not having a $203,500 home to pay off?
Picture never having to pay $500 or more every month in utility bills! Instead … you can reduce that to just $165 per year in utilities!
Think about how great it will be relaxing in your new home, without the burdens of the world on your shoulders … yes it can soon be yours. You would at last feel FREE!
The headaches, the stress, the rampant consumerism of life would be gone and finally you could really live life and feel happy.
But to do it yourself would cost you thousands of dollars in trial and error.
Instead, you avoid the mistakes and do it right the first time for just $59.95 – your one-time investment in our DVD: Tumbleweed Construction Video. As you’ll soon see, it’s comprehensive, very detailed, very specific video that shows how absolutely anyone can get started!

It’s entirely up to you to decide if the Tumbleweed Construction Video is right for you. That’s why I’m giving you a generous 30 days to decide for yourself if the plans and information presented exceed your expectations.

To do this right we gathered some of the best and the brightest in the industry so that they could pass their knowledge on to you. Let me introduce them –
First, we have the Fisher Family. We met Dave, Alan and Ben at a workshop and were blown away by their kindness, integrity and skilled craftsmanship. Today we are proud to say that they are not only official Tumbleweed Builders, but also a cherished part of the Tumbleweed family.
Next, there is Art Cormier; a Tumbleweed do-it-yourselfer who built his home out of mostly recycled materials that we originally discovered on YouTube.
And then there is me – Meg Stephens, Tumbleweed's in-house designer. She is currently building her own tiny home right now.
