She’s got a 95-year-old mother who is excited for her and they’d both love to get the chance to tour a little house preferably a Tumbleweed in the Los Angeles area.
So I thought I’d re-post her message here and ask if you might be able to help refer her to somewhere (or someone) that can help her.
Within the next couple of years I will be building a Tumbleweed Fencl to live in. My 95-year old mom supports my dream but she doesn’t really know what a tiny house looks like. I’d love to find someone in the greater Los Angeles, CA area who might be willing to share just a few minutes of their time to show my mom what my future little home will look like. I’ve posted my request on the Tiny House Map, but other than that do you have any ideas how I can get my message out to other Tiny Housers? Would this request merit a mention in your newsletter?
If you have any ideas or suggestions just leave them in the comments below or if you’d prefer to get in contact with Teri directly her email is terijane [AT] sonic dot NET (hope you can make that out, just trying to avoid spammers). Thank you so much!
Most of us or at least I think most of us want a tiny house to live in full-time so we can live life on our own terms.
At least that’s why I was motivated to initially look into little homes.. How about you?
And I was able to achieve a lot of the same results with a really small apartment. This helped me save money, lower my living costs, and transition into owning my own business.
Right away I realized that living small also helps the environment which is great. And I believe the future of housing lies somewhere between small spaces and smart design.
But what about a little cabin to write in? To work in? Or maybe just to get away in? It turns out that a lot of normal people in regular sized houses want the same thing for their hobbies. A place to get away from it all or to concentrate on their passion.
So I decided to arrange a phone call to interview him that way you can get a glimpse into his thoughts and reasons for making this change and how he’s making it all work.
I’ve transcribed the interview for you to read below but I’ve also uploaded it to YouTube so you can listen to it on there. In the near future it will be available on iTunes as a podcast so that you can listen to it from your iPhone, iPad, iPod, PC, or Mac. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Oh and if you’re curious, he’s building and designing a slightly modified version of Tumbleweed’s Fencl design which looks like this:

I can’t wait to learn more about the house. But for now enjoy the interview then if you want to leave your thoughts at the bottom of this page in the comments so we can all talk about it.
