Tumbleweed Fencl Update


Kent Griswold from Tiny House Blog visited the Tumbleweed Fencl construction site again this week and posted an update on his blog. As you can see Jay Shafer and crew are coming right along with getting this tiny house built in time for his cross country trip this summer.

Jay is also shooting a lot of video with the idea of putting together a DVD that shows just how to build a Tumbleweed Tiny House. It should serve as a useful tool for anyone looking to build one of these little houses, or even something similar.

From the photos you can begin to see why Tumbleweed houses tend to be expensive. The high quality custom windows & doors, natural wood, environmentally friendly insulation, and generally high quality materials add up. You could build a tiny house for a lot less money but you’d need to be much more frugal in your materials choices. For more information about the Fencl and Jay’s other designs visit the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company website.

    I’m not sure what the actual door and window sizes are but they are smaller. Most things in Tumbleweed houses are scaled down a little.

    But even for a big guy like me getting through the doors are not a problem at all… so they are not play-house size.

    The doors on the mobile Tumbleweed houses always look very narrow to me in pictures – are they indeed narrower than a standard house door, or is it just something about the perspective that makes them look that way?

    We built a gypsy wedge trailer. She is called Mariah. She has a twelve foot cabin and two foot porch all of her electrical is LED.
