Online tour of a Tumbleweed House

Several readers have pointed out that Jay Shafer of Tumbleweed Houses has now put together a tour of one of his shedlike homes. Click and enjoy!

For those of you unfamiliar with Jay's wonderful work, here's how he describes it:
"Since 1997 I have been living in a house smaller than some people's closets. I call the first of my little hand built houses Tumbleweed. My decision to inhabit just 100 square feet arose from some concerns I had about the impact a larger house would have on the environment, and because I do not want to maintain a lot of unused or unusable space. My houses have met all of my domestic needs without demanding much in return. The simple, slower lifestyle my homes have afforded is a luxury for which I am continually grateful."

  1. that's a great website! My kids and I had a lot of fun "touring" the tiny houses.
