I’m thrilled to announce Jay Shafer’s new venture in the tiny house movement. As you might know, he left Tumbleweed Houses to pursue interests in the same industry.
Jay’s new company is called Four Lights Houses. They are currently a team of four: Shafer and his friends Mark Sowers, Alicia Feltman, and Takeshi Okada.
Much remains the same except hands-on tiny house camp and a tiny house community. Yes! An official Jay Shafer tiny house village. But wait, because there’s more. Jay is dedicated to bringing us new tiny house plans on a consistent basis and compact furniture we can use to design our homes the way we want.
Above is an interior photo of the Marmara tiny house that packs more space than any of Jay’s prior tiny homes. Enjoy the rest of this article below:
And of course, The Small House Book and The DIY Book are available on his new website.
My favorite part about Jay’s new venture is his pursuit of his first tiny house community named Napoleon Complex: Cohousing for the Antisocial.
The village will be in Northern California and zoned as an RV Park with a density of 16 to 22 homes per acre for a total of 40 to 70 houses.
It will have an 800 to 1600 square foot common house, private gardens, storage units, walkways, parking spaces, and shared outdoor space.
Napoleon Complex is proposed to open in 2015 and as it states on their new website, “Any or all of these ideas might change if we think of something even better.”
