Meet Tumbleweed, Jay Shafer’s 89 square foot house, which he built himself, learning how to do so as he went. Unlike me, who always needs more space, Jay loves living small and wouldn’t go back to “living big.” The house has lead to a business, the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, and he’s able to cart his house like a trailer right to job sites, or anywhere else he wants to go.
Though I couldn’t live this way, I would love for all the people who wouldn’t mind, or who would even enjoy it to do so, as it would free up a lot of land and resources. Actually, it would give me much more land on my 0.18 acres for log collecting and milling :) Maybe I’ll consider it. His house isn’t a whole lot bigger than the wood storage shed I built.
