Since 1997, Jay Shafer has been wowing the world with his incredible tiny house designs.
In 2002 he co-founded the Small House Society with Gregory Johnson.
Last year he split with his original company, Tumbleweed, and founded Four Lights Tiny House Company.
“I’m always fidgeting with how to make spaces more efficient,” says Jay.
Today he’s working on constantly improving ways to make his tiny houses as flexible as possible so you can adjust the homes to your needs as easily as possible.
Jay shares his latest tiny house design ideas with you
I explained Shafer’s component furniture concept for tiny houses in this post, but he also shows you how it works in the video above.
He’ll also tell you about his ‘trailer park’ tiny house village that he’s working on.

“You don’t need a lot of stuff to be happy,” says Jay. And this is what this lifestyle is all about. Removing all the crap that doesn’t serve you anymore so you can put your focus on what matters to you most.
