Tiny House Interview with Jay Shafer

This morning I was able to get an interview with Jay Shafer of Tumbleweed Houses for you guys.

I think you’ll discover a few things about him that you weren’t aware of before.

Forgive me for the low quality as it was my first time recording my own interview using Skype and Camtasia and I couldn’t figure out how to make my own face bigger (but that’s okay because you want to see/hear Jay, not me, haha).

But I know you’ll enjoy the interview regardless of quality. I had to split it into two parts because of Youtube’s 10 minute rule.

Be sure to watch part two because he’ll tell you about Tumbleweed’s latest upcoming designs which are really interesting and completely different than anything he has ever done.

When you’re done watching do me a favor and leave your thoughts in the comments. I want to hear what you think about his new tiny houses (which he’ll be revealing pictures of soon).

As always I’d appreciate you helping me spread the word by using the Facebook Like and Retweet buttons. Enjoy…

Here’s Part One:

And Part Two:

Spread the word…

    Great interview! Don’t worry about the video quality issue, it’s about the message which comes through without issue! Keep up the great job, I am looking forward to more interviews.

    Great interview, Alex! I loved Part 2, where Jay Shafer said he is coming out with more things… that one could fit little sinks, etc. through a door to a shed if one wants to convert their shed, and converting a bed to a desk, etc. I DO have a wish to maybe do that for my son, because I have a small shed with a window which would be perfect for this. I will have to keep my eyes open for Jay’s endorsement of these new products he’s found. When he comes out with them, I hope you will do a post about them!
    Anyway, great job on the interview, Alex!

    Nice interview Alex. I’m excited to learn more of the new “transformer” changing furniture that will double for more than one purpose type furniture. It sounds perfect for tiny home living. Can’t wait to see this stuff!
    Thanks again,

    Great interview Alex, I like the part of simplifying… the less you have is more treasured.
    I have been working as a personal organizer and helping people simplify there stuff…. it’s very freeing to let go.
    I have been building my own tiny house that will be my studio to simplify my life.

    Love’n tha Freedom-2-Thrive attitudes that are growing… Tina fell in love with our shell in Sonoma and was happy to design her own interior… Freedom! Affordable shells… we hope to see villages taking homeless families off the street, out from under overpasses… when the FED allows predatory lending and people get evicted from their homes… it is tragic! Turn’n frowns up side down… sweet lemonade of success! Love and Light – Tom
