The Fencl is one of the largest of the tiny houses on trailers designed by Jay Shafer.

It’s 130 square feet and features a large kitchen, open living room, super small porch, and an upstairs sleeping loft.

The exterior resembles their Weebee model but this one is larger.

The living area has a vaulted ceiling, the exterior is covered in cedar, the inside in pine, and the roof is covered with corrugated aluminum.

Most of the bedrooms (sleeping lofts) in these houses are large enough for a queen sized bed or foam mattress.

    this is such a nice idea. don't think i could live in something this small because i would get clostiphobia or however you spell it. but it would make a nice guest home or camper. my idea would be to put a cushioned window seat/blanket chest in the corner of the main room. would make a cozy spot for reading or laptop time.

    the front corner in the main area would also be great to sit a playpen for guest's sleeping baby

    i'll shut up after this (maybe) i just love that little corner lol

    ok one more thing….OR you could have a built in window seat with removalable cushion, small blanket chest underneath on one side, other side open which could transform into a window seat to table and with a removable 18″ tall partition with spindles and cushion added back could be a toddler or baby bed.. that's all!!!

    All great ideas for that part of the house! I like the desk one the best for me.

    I like this house.Does it have a toilet,bathroom? I would love to have one of these little houses,if anything,for a guest house,but I need some property of my own first..lol….

    Tina, I could use property too lol. But sometimes you can work things out without having to buy land. But to answer your question, Yes it has a shower and bathroom right next to the kitchen.

    Tumbleweed designs seem impractical:

    - Rather than a loft – try a daybed or futon couch and shorten the height of the building.
    - Rather than shelving/cupboards/closets – store wardrobe/kitchen items in pull-out, underbed baskets.
    - For spaciousness – try a portable stovetop, a computer for all media; desks/tables are not really needed.
    - For light, try arched windows.

      Hi,
      Tumbleweed designs seem impractical and over priced!!

      I am building construction estimator on Ft. Huachuca Az.
      I have ran the figures on building a small house. IF you do all the work
      yourself (no labor$)
      You can figure an average of $10.00 per square ft. If you build it on a slab
      it will save money on building costs but may cost you more when you figure
      in all of the permits that you may have to get.
      Anything built on a trailer does not require permits or stamps of any kind.
      As long as it passes DMV inspection you are good.

      Most of you may have known this already, but just thought I would throw in
      my 2 cents.

        Trailer is biggest expense, so yeah, if you can find a way to build on a normal foundation you can save lots of $$.

        Another way to save is taking the time to find reclaimed materials on Craigslist and maybe your local Habitat for Humanity Resale store. Find a location near you here: http://www.habitat.org/restores/

      on another note, who ever did the carpenter work on the above 130 SF Fencl Tiny House, is good at what he does!! That is some nice work!!

        Hey Robert, you can customize the Tumbleweed designs to make them less expensive. If you build it yourself, as you see above, it runs around $20,000 or so. That’s buying the materials over the counter.

        You can also save by using drywall and manufactured siding but why when your place is so small? I’d rather go for the more luxurious feel personally.

        The home pictured was done by Tumbleweed’s carpenter.. Maybe even Jay Shafer himself, not 100% sure though.

    Hi,
    Sorry about the double rely above. I’m new to the blogging thing. The biggest savings is on labor, unfortunately not everyone is able to do that kind of work them selves. The trailer being a big expense can be good because it by passes building permits and engineering stamps. Also you do not have to own land.
    I think with the current economic trend……these types of homes are going to go on the uprise.
