Kayla’s time in the Navy, in the service of our country, included tours to Iraq, Africa, and Afghanistan. As a part of the humanitarian efforts, she participated in constructing much-needed infrastructure in those countries. The Seabees also built quarters for the Marines serving in combat zones in Iraq. One such construction project, a SWA hut city, was destroyed by mortars shortly after completion. The destruction of the base was demoralizing for Kayla and her fellow servicemen and women. Her account of that story – delivered with humor – was that she had been a tiny house builder in the Navy before she arrived at Tumbleweed Tiny House Company!
Kayla is originally from Plymouth, Wisconsin. Her husband Brian is also a member of the Tumbleweed Tribe. They both currently call Colorado Springs home, so her family sends care packages of genuine Wisconsin cheese and butter. In her free time, Kayla enjoys fishing, hunting, camping, and painting pictures. Artistic painting provides her an outlet to de-stress and explore creativity outside of work. The couple has two dogs and a cat. Their pets have lovingly applied nicknames and Kayla’s eyes light up when she describes their daily comings and goings.

As a tiny house builder, Kayla’s skills as a Navy Seabee have been a great addition to the Tumbleweed tribe. She has proven to be a versatile builder on our roster of craftsmen and craftswomen. She is currently the finish painter for the Mill department but previously put her welding skills to use in our trailer shop. Working in the paint booth is a natural extension for her creative outlet.
