Jonathan’s Fencl Tiny House

I’m not sure if you guys have ever seen Jonathan’s Fencl before but for those of you who haven’t, here it is.

I’ll just feature a few of his pictures here plus his Youtube video and then I’ll guide you over to his LiveJournal site where you can get more pictures and complete details on all of his progress.

I can’t wait until the winter is over so we can start getting updates from him again. He does a great job of showing us what it’s like to build a Tumbleweed house.

So here are some pictures of his latest work and you’ll find the video embedded underneath along with his link.

Here’s a peak at the kitchen:

His living room and office with furniture:

And his bed loft with storage cabinets on the sides. Note: He has a larger bed in there now but I chose to put this picture here so you can see the cabinets better.

Here’s Jonathan’s video tour that he posted in December ’09:

Here’s the link to Jonathan’s Live Journal page where you’ll find more pictures and details of all his work. You’ll have fun browsing through his pages and comments.

    Thanks for your comment Debbie, I like it too, as is even but a little longer would be better especially for two. Happy holidays!

    I noticed on his blog that Jonathan talks about problems finding a place to “park” his Fencl. Two questions, (1) is it b/c it’s the equivalent of parking a mobile home (which often requires special zoning) and (2) can the Fencl be built on a slab foundation or piling and avoid building permit requirements b/c it is less than 200 square feet?

      Hey Aili.. I think you have the right idea. It’s an unusual thing, a tiny house on a trailer- so it is challenging to find a place to park it although you can do it at most RV parks and some people’s backyards many times. It can be built on a foundation if it meets “shed” requirements for that location, which is different depending on your location. Sometimes it’s 100 sq ft or less. Other times 120, just depends. Hope this helps!

    Hello i really liked the Fencl and this is the one that i’m thinking on building.

    Why did he needed an secund heater the gas on isn’t enough?

      Not sure about that second heater Luis.. I’ve been in Florida my entire life so I wouldn’t know but maybe it saves $/propane during certain times?

    I saw the solar panel i don’t think that he is connected to the electricity

      Yeah- not sure why. Guess it might be able to run off solar maybe?
