Lizzy Meets Her Tumbleweed Tiny House for the First Time

This is Lizzy meeting her Tiny House (with a huge bathtub!) for the first time.

If you are still waiting to go tiny, I’m sure you can’t wait to feel her pure joy when she walks into her Tumbleweed home in Colorado Springs. You can watch Lizzy’s blissful reaction in her video tour, and read all about her tiny journey on her blog, LizzyFlowers. Enjoy 🙂

    It’s a nice tiny house and I wish her the best of luck with it, but I would have not had it built with that second door as it takes up a lot of valuable space that could be used for main living area…

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 23, 2017, 8:15 am

      Some folks concerned with fires like having a second point of egress, but I understand the concern about space.

      • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN January 23, 2017, 5:04 pm

        You do realize it’s only less than 8 ft. across from the main entry door..?

        • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 24, 2017, 6:25 am

          Haha it’s a tiny home 🙂 I’m just saying that might be why she chose it. I’d put another one in the bathroom if it were my tiny.

  • Susanne January 21, 2017, 3:08 pm

    That was fun to see! Exciting! ( thanks for telling us where to start in the video). …..:) would love to see a follow-up of at least a month or more on how they feel AFTER living in it for a few months….?

  • Susanne January 21, 2017, 3:09 pm

    Yes I will see her blog….:)

  • Jill January 21, 2017, 8:58 pm

    She paid over 100 grand for this place. Too much cash. build your own and save.

    • Eric January 21, 2017, 10:00 pm

      Jill, not everybody has the skill, nor the time, to build themselves. Speaking as the son of a builder I’ve got 2 left hands that are about as coordinated as a bunch of chickens.

      Still, $100k is a LOT of money for what it is.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 23, 2017, 7:54 am

      I mean, if she was happy with it, then I think we shouldn’t judge 🙂

  • ROSEE January 23, 2017, 11:45 am

    Not my style or color theme, but if Lizzy is happy with her home, I am happy for her. Well done!

  • Jill H January 23, 2017, 12:42 pm

    Understandably it is her right and she is happy with that and I am happy for her happiness. I am just stating that that is a whole lot of cash to fork out when many reasons for going tiny is to save and not spend or overspend on Tiny. Does anyone know the resale values on Tinies yet? will that drive the market much higher and knock most lower waged people out of this possibility as well? Just curious to know if anyone has any facts to show where the movement of Tiny is headed?

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 24, 2017, 6:44 am

      From what I see with tiny houses for re-sale on THT, most people sell their homes for less than they purchased them.

      • Jill January 25, 2017, 12:06 am

        So Natalie, You are stating that they depreciate such as mobile homes do on the market and we won’t have to worry as much about prices being driven up like bigger McMansions are?

        • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 25, 2017, 8:18 am

          I’m no economist (#EnglishMajor), but honestly I think these more expensive THOWs are going to start going down in price because there are so many more builders out there, and fewer and fewer places to park tiny houses. Basically, the market is being flooded right now, and people are reselling because, unfortunately, most towns aren’t tiny house friendly. I’ve never seen a THOW appreciate in value, and I think unless there are big changes to housing laws soon, you’ll see the prices start dropping again.

  • Kelli January 24, 2017, 8:09 am

    One of my favorite posts in the many years I’ve been reading Alex’s newsletter. I loved seeing someone so excited about owning their first home and then seeing her joy on taking possession of it. Fantastic!! Wishing her all the best in her new home!!

  • Carol Perry January 24, 2017, 12:46 pm

    Wow! Lizzy’s video was amazing! She is going to have so much fun decorating and adding her furniture and things to her little place! I love her porch for her plants, she could fix it up real cute! I would love to see another video of her place after she decorates it!

    Thanks for inviting me and sharing it!?

  • Jill January 25, 2017, 12:08 am

    Thanks for sharing the video, I do think the THOW is beautiful

  • rachel January 25, 2017, 5:58 pm

    Lovely and simple. I do like the LIGHT interior, looks so different than one with dark wood or black. I am still partial to steel framed homes because of the weight savings (AND saving trees), but most builders use wood. Does seem like a pricey home though. namaste’, rachel

    Hi Everyone!

    It’s me, Lizzy 🙂 I saw this discussion and figured I would say hi! The house cost a lot yes, but having someone build it for me made it insurable for about $50 on my current insurance. AKA if it falls off a cliff or I back it into a gas station or it catches on fire or breaks in half or gets driven into it is covered. That is the true reason I had someone else build it. The house itself is *not* insurable for its value including labor costs unless it is a certified RV that is build by a certified builder! The peace of mind when I am driving my tiny down the road with crazy drivers on black ice is well worth the $100k to me 😛 Also, I put the second door on the side for easy access to all the hookups and for airflow. We are working on purchasing some land where we will build a “docking station”. Imagine a porch that you drive your tiny house up to! The 2 doors mean people can go in and out as they want without walking into each other. It also helps with air flow, which is a major issue in a tiny house… tiny houses often have moisture problems and you can actually kill yourself by cooking with all the windows closed. The side door I can block if I want to so I can have back the space if I want to but its a nice option. Thanks everyone for commenting, yes I know it is a different style than a lot of houses but it uses natural materials and I can decorate it easily with whatever colors I am in the mood for! I love it SO much and will be posting more videos towards the end of the summer. If you have questions please let me know! I turned on notifications on here so I should get them 🙂

    Love,
    Lizzy
