Tiny is terrific!
Could you imagine living in a house less than 100 square feet? Jay Schafer could. In fact, he liked the idea so much that he started the Tumbleweed Tiny House company to design and sell his lilliputian creations. Now people all around the country are living in small, semi-portable Tumbleweed houses.
They come in various sizes ranging from 70 to 770 square feet. Building plans can be customized, and if you aren't the do-it-yourself type you can even have them build and ship it to you in about three months. All but the largest versions are built on trailers, so they can be towed anywhere, plugged to electricity (or solar/wind/hydro/etc power) and made your own.
