Tonight I ran across the story of a fellow in Flint, Michigan that is building a Tumbleweed Fencl. The Fencl is an 8′ by 19′ tiny house on a trailer designed by Jay Shafer. The interior square footage is just 130 square feet and the plan features an open main room with a sleeping loft over the kitchen and bath.
His house is coming along nicely and he’s posted many photos and notes on his blog. Like many people interested in building and living in tiny houses Gungadin is looking for a better life through sustainability and simplicity. Here is how he describes his current thinking:
“Lately, my interests have turned “green.” I’m trying to get away from the current consumptive lifestyle and go toward a no-impact one, and eventually a positive-impact one. Nature doesn’t need humans any more than I need my bike… but I can get around a lot faster on my bike, and nature can recover a lot faster with help from people. Problem is, most peeps aren’t helping.”
Looks great Gungadin, I’m looking forward to following your progress!
