Your Workshop Instructors
Skillfully presented by actual Tumbleweed owners/builders—who happily share their stories and experiences on subjects such as choosing the appropriate trailer base, selecting green materials, and the importance of using the right tools etc.—these workshops cover every aspect of Tumbleweed building and lifestyle.
Brittany built her Cypress after attending a Tumbleweed workshop. Without any building experience, she created a great cottage exterior. She also modified the interior and really took great effort to accent her home with charm.
Jenna attended the Los Angeles workshop with her partner, Guillaume. Together they built a custom Cypress-20 on a Tumbleweed trailer, and they are now traveling all over North America with their tiny abode. Jenna enjoys exploring nature, trying new things, hiking with her dog, and writing about travel and minimal living.
“This was an excellent workshop. I purchased the DVD which was great but the workshop went more indepth on each subject. Also the other attendees had great input on the subjects.”
“This workshop was exactly what I needed to go to to convince me that a house on wheels is the lifestyle for me. Great information and happy to have a networking system moving forward.”
“The workshop was incredibly informational. I will know how everything was built, where it is and possibly how to repair it. I loved the workshop. Meg, Guillaume and Mario were amazing. I learned so much.”
