One of Jay Shafer’s Original Tumbleweed Tiny Houses For Sale (Again)

When I went to our Tiny House Talk Facebook Page this morning I noticed one of Jay Shafer’s original Tumbleweed Tiny Houses for sale.

It’s the Epu that Deek covered a while back when it was near Boston.

It Looks like the person who bought it (not long ago) is selling it.

    At $371/per square foot, this is hardly a deal. You can get a 1/4 acre of land on a lake with a 500 square foot home where I live, @ $138/sq.ft. Or, if you’re an Urban Pioneer, you can buy a 6 bedroom/6 bath home in the remaining “wealthy” section of Gary, Indiana for $30,000.00, $3,000. less than this 89 sq.ft. gem. Oh, well, some new investor will snap it up, no doubt.

    Realtors are obviously the same whether selling large or tiny houses – the for sale site shows photos of the interior as it was years ago – not what it looks like today.

    Jay literally built the Tiny House movement and its great to see those houses are still around.
    Really gives some creedence to the whole idea of Tiny Home living.

    My question is, whatever happened to the original house that he toured all over the country?

    They one that was featured on the CBS news program “CBS Sunday Morning” (and possibly 60 Minutes, not to mention the evening news).
