Tiny House Question and Answer Interview with Jay Shafer of Tumbleweed Houses

Who better to have a tiny house question and answer session with than Jay Shafer?

He has built dozens of tiny homes on wheels and has been living in them since 1997.

A few weeks ago I told you about the Tumbleweed Tiny XS House that’s being featured at the Toledo Museum of Art.

Right now they’ve got it up for auction on eBay so you have a chance at bidding on this 65-square-foot portable home.

Toledo Museum of Art featured Jay Shafer as a guest speaker.

In case you don’t know, the XS House is one of his designs. One of his smallest, too.

Sit back and relax. Grab a hot tea or coffee, and enjoy.

Small House That's Perfect for a Humble Family - Has Green, Living Roof Too

Most of the time when you think of tiny houses, if you’re like me, you’re thinking of a “micro” home of around 65 to 200 square feet.

This house is going to be a little bit different because I think it suits a small family perfectly.

Designed by Jessica Helgerson, photographed by Lincoln Barbour, and recently featured in Martha Stewart Living, the home won’t fail to impress you.

As you’re walking up to the home, you’ll immediately notice the green, living roof.

This small house is surrounded by beautiful trees and other greenery.

If you’re like me, you’ll love the attention to detail everywhere in this house.

Like the tree which comes out of the front porch flooring. I love that.
