Holly adds: to help you dream, or get started, Jay offers a new, beautiful book full of wonderful tiny home pictures, plans and ideas.

“Since completing Tumbleweed, I have continued to make little buildings. How each house gets used depends on the occupant’s particular needs. What one person would enjoy as a quiet studio in their backyard, another couple might choose to inhabit as a full-time residence. What some people see as the perfect weekend hideaway in the country, others will use as a beautiful free-standing addition to their existing home for accommodating an elderly parent, an adult child, guests, or as office space. My houses have been composed with meticulous attention to light, warmth, energy efficiency, and proportion. I have made the most of each cozy interior by minimizing transitional areas like hallways and stairwells and by using otherwise unusable space as storage. The simple, formal designs that have resulted are the best way I have found to order most any space and make it beautiful.”

“At Tumbleweed Tiny House Company its our mission to make the plans and tools available so you can build your own little building based on my designs, ready-to-build kits, and even already manufactured tiny homes ready to be transported to you.”


“One Great Company Three Trusted Brands”

“Wood stoves, pellet stoves, gas and multi-fuel (‘agri-fuel’ or ‘biomass’) stoves … For more than three decades, family-owned England’s Stove Works has heated the nation’s homes, providing the best in dependability, solid design and – something we’re very proud of – Customer Satisfaction!”

“Englander, Summers Heat and Timber Ridge stoves are carried nationwide by well-known retailers including lumberyards, distributors, stove dealers, DIY stores and “big box” centers (Click Here for a list of dealers). The reason for the popularity of our products is quite simple:  Ron England believes – as his father did – in making available a quality product (our stoves are well-known for being seen across the nation, heating family rooms after years of service) at a great price (we’re among the most competitively-priced out there, and have been for decades).”


Holly adds: This is not a traditional “made in the USA” company. However, this blog features so many small houses and start-ups from around our country (and overseas on occasion), that I felt they were perfect for the site! You can buy plans here too.


“The goal of the tiny house blog is to discover the different options available for a person looking to down size into a tiny house or cabin. I will be looking at different type of construction, from logs, to yurts to modern and the unusual. I will also do book reviews, look at alternate energy for heat and electricity. I also want to hear your story so please contact me with your pictures and your own experiences in living simply and small.”

“I want to encourage feedback and ideas to make this an informative blog. Stories of people who are living this dream. Pictures of tiny houses and cabins, etc. My goal is to publish daily if possible. Thank you for sharing in this experience with me.”
