Jay Shafer Tiny House Workshop with a Field Trip


Thought I would inform you that at Jay Shafer’s upcoming workshop in California this August 10-11, 2013, you’ll get to also go on a tour to see a bunch of tiny houses on a field trip the entire group will be taking.

Little things like that are what make certain workshops special to me, in my opinion. So I wanted to be sure you knew you could have this opportunity to see a variety of little homes on trailers while hanging out with Jay and a bunch of other tiny house enthusiasts.

Sign up for the workshop directly through Jay’s Four Lights Tiny House Company here.

Tiny House on Wheels with an Addition

I wanted to share Timothy’s tiny house design with you today. I got to meet him at the Atlantia, Georgia Tiny Home Builders workshop earlier this year.

He ended up purchasing Dan’s Tinier Living plans and made some adjustments which I think are awesome. And if you ever needed or wanted to it seems like you’d be able to detach and roll the home away.

This works well for so many things because you can live in it, take it on vacation, and even use it as an emergency shelter or “bug out” house in the event of an emergency.

Read the original post on Timothy’s tiny house right here.

Hand Built Gypsy Wagon for Rent in Seattle, WA


Here’s a modern day gypsy wagon built on wheels that you can rent in Seattle, WA. I like how it has the built in front porch over the tongue of the trailer similar to this tiny house.

This would be the perfect place to stay if you’re thinking about attending one of Tumbleweed’s upcoming workshops in Seattle (not a hands on workshop though but still a great chance to get together and meet with other like minded people).


This looks like the perfect place to get some rest after a long day of exploring the town or attending a workshop.
