Tumbleweed Fencl Tiny House with Combo Washer Dryer

This tiny house is a Tumbleweed Fencl model which is 130 square feet. This unit is one of the first that I had ever seen with a combo washer/dryer unit in it, so that’s what makes it special to me!

It was located in Shippensburg, PA when it was for sale and they were asking $34,500 for it (it’s long been sold).

This is the first time I’ve seen one of these include a washer/dryer combination unit.

It’s also got the following appliances already installed:

  • 6-gallon water heater
  • Range with oven and cooktop
  • Air conditioner
  • Fireplace
  • Refrigerator

The house is bolted down to a 9,000-pound double axle trailer. To explore more amazing tiny homes like this, join our Tiny House Newsletter. It’s free and you’ll be glad you did! We even give you free downloadable tiny house plans just for joining!

    It is my dream to someday own this wonderful home when funds become available. It’s simply beautiful.

  • Avatar Alex August 24, 2011, 4:31 pm

    Isn’t it great? I was amazed at how perfectly everything fits. Thanks Sonia!

  • Avatar Kayla October 17, 2011, 12:00 pm

    Has this home been sold? The link to the listing results in an error. My husband and I are interested in it. Any info would be helpful, thanks!

    • Avatar Donna February 5, 2014, 11:41 am

      I have the basic same floorplan built tiny house that my husband and I have had a year and love as our lake house. Due to knee issues thinking to sell (loft sleeping area). Located in northeast Texas …..if interested contact me at [email protected]. Donna

    • Avatar David September 8, 2014, 4:53 pm

      I have one of these trailers being built right now that I would like to get out of my customer has changed there mind, you could pick your own finishes and details right now.

      Please email or call me at 570-472-2179


  • Avatar Alex October 18, 2011, 1:16 pm

    Hi Kayla, glad that you asked because someone else emailed me about it too. Yes, it’s been sold. But you can get the plans to build it yourself, or have a contractor do it for you: https://tinyhousetalk.com/fencl

    It costs about $23,000 to build it yourself (including cost of trailer and building plans)

    If you have any questions let me know! Hope this helps get you started.

  • Avatar Really? October 29, 2011, 8:01 pm

    Lovely, but way too much money for plans for a home like this. You can get high quality and detailed plans for well-designed tiny and small homes on countryplans dot com for a hell of a lot less money, and also ideas for space-saving contraptions, appliances, etc..

  • Avatar Alex October 30, 2011, 11:18 am

    I’m happy you shared the countryplans resource as it’s great but there’s nothing like Tumbleweed’s *tiny* house plans. None have so much detail for interior and exterior that I’ve seen… Especially for 8’6″ wide houses which can be legally towed on roads. Thank you for sharing your opinion though! See ya. ~Alex

    • Avatar Heather January 8, 2015, 11:36 am

      I def agree with you Alex. (I think I must throw in Four Lights Houses co. As well

  • Avatar Jim August 11, 2012, 5:07 pm

    This has got to be one of the best examples of the plan. It is ‘great’ to say the least. Kudo’s to you.

      Thanks Jim I’m glad you liked it!

    contact me if there is a small home for sale in the New Jersey area, thank you.

  • Avatar Barbara October 8, 2012, 4:41 pm

    Very nice! I guess cleanliness is next to Godliness as the focal point seems to be the washer/dryer.

    • Avatar Heather January 8, 2015, 11:24 am

      More likely the reason the washer/dryer is in this spot is because all the other piping and water lines are at this end of the house. It cuts down on cost to have it in this spot because you’ll not have to spend money on materials to stretch across to somewhere else in the house. We had considered putting it towards the middle of the house in the clothes closet so it would be hidden, however we wanted to put any little extra money towards other areas of the house instead. You can run a cute curtain in front of the washer to hide it if it’s that important.

  • Avatar rpdii October 10, 2012, 9:30 pm

    I’m very curious to learn more about that stove and oven. I’m a real beginner at tiny house stuff, so I’m wondering if that appliance is something designed for an RV? Any detail you can provide would be great.


    • Avatar Heather January 8, 2015, 11:17 am

      There are woodstoves and cooking stoves specifically made for RV’s and boats. When searching you’ll have to specifically say “RV or boat/marine stove” and know what size watt/amps you’ll need(this is very important to know before purchasing. They also make small refrigerators. We actually Opted to use an induction cooktop instead of an oven/stove. This way we can stowaway the cooktop out of sight when not in use and gives us back our counter space for other things. Nor does it take up a lot of space underneath the counter.We wanted a Woodstove for the cold winters so we chose the very tiny marine stove that you can use on boats; this will also double for an oven because we can cook on top of it with a Dutch oven pan.

  • Avatar April December 11, 2012, 10:07 pm

    I am wondering how hard it would be to build this yourself, and maybe how much time it would take say if you only had weekends to work on it?

    • Avatar April December 11, 2012, 10:10 pm

      Also instead of just a washer could there be space for that and a dryer?

      • Avatar Par January 25, 2013, 9:18 am

        Will be very tight. In a tiny house every little addition takes space. So a combined washer/dryer would probably be a better choice.

      • Avatar Joyce February 22, 2014, 7:36 pm

        The one photo appears to be a shelf with inside ladder. I say move the refrigerator to where the current washer/dryer combo unit is and open up the storage space next to that refrigerator (as currently shown) and you may be able to install a stacking washer/dryer unit. Some folks use doors to hide such units or even a curtain. Shop carefully as stacking units vary in height. A longer unit may use stairs and one could place a dryer under the stairway.

      • Avatar Joe August 30, 2014, 10:40 pm

        April if you look it appears the washer is deeper than the fridge,mening it would stick out farther into the kitchen blocking movement.

      • Avatar Heather January 8, 2015, 11:02 am

        My husband and I have built this Fencl model(with a few of our own changes) which is also 130 sq ft. My husband, myself and my father n law did most of the work ourselves. Occasionally we had help from a few friends/relatives to install the electricity or put up the interior/exterior siding. We also built it in the freezing cold and snowy weather with only a tarp to cover our work and a space heater for a little warmth. So from working on it day in and day out as much as weather would allow us, starting mid March to 1st week of June, it took us about 2-2.5 months. We built it in this timeframe because we had no oth options.Really. This doesn’t include putting on the finishing touches inside and getting settled in. Also we use a washer/dryer combo machine which is a little bit smaller than the one pictured. We love having our combo unit(preferred over a stackable) and instead of going to the laundromat(which we have also done in the past). For the two of us who need play clothes and dress clothes, lounging attire and the dish rags and towels(2 bath towels per person)….we use these a lot throughout the week… The washer/dryer combo is necessary for us. All in all we love our tiny house! Only changes I would make are one more skylight over the great room and reposition the kitchen sink. But we love it!

  • Avatar Ian January 19, 2013, 10:38 pm

    Like this but the position of the sink seems to be difficult to interact with, and something to think of if the stove/oven has been running as you could burn yourself. I think there might be smaller washer/dryer combos out there also.

  • Avatar Laura Love March 20, 2013, 6:14 pm

    I personally am totally and completely in love with the Molecule tiny homes… I love the folding deck, the spacious sleeping loft ( which for a tall person is more of a necessity…the angled sleeping lofts in the Tumbleweed tiny homes are rather claustrophobic to be in imho )
    I encourage you to check them out…
    I have been in contact with the guys who create them and they are really wonderfully informative and kind people….
    good luck to all who are embarking on the Tiny Home path… I am going to start one myself soon, and I am looking forward to immersing my self in the community !

    • Avatar Kelli August 29, 2014, 8:07 pm

      Hey Laura,
      I second your comment. I love Tumbleweed’s designs, of course, but Molecule is my true love in terms of design. There’s just something they’re doing that makes the spaces seems so big. I really hope they will, sooner than later, do what Tumbleweed has done and get their plans distribution ready and start selling their plans… I’ve been watching for some time now and I know the demand is certainly there. So nice to see both companies with “raving fans” as they say. 🙂

  • Avatar Amanda Brisbois May 13, 2013, 7:22 am

    Is this house still for sale? Pleasesned me an email. I am interested!!

  • Avatar Lori Nelson February 22, 2014, 1:20 pm

    Is the builder of that particular Fenci going to build more just like it? How can a person find out?

  • Avatar alice h August 29, 2014, 4:01 pm

    I like the finish and trim on this one. Not sure about the washer being so prominent, seems to cramp the stove area a bit.

  • Avatar Jennie Perkins August 29, 2014, 9:46 pm

    If it’s not to much trouble, where did you purchase your stove/oven? I am building a Tiny House and love looking at all the different TH so that I could get a general idea what kind of different products to purchase. Any information will greatly be appreciated

    • Avatar Heather January 8, 2015, 11:42 am

      I would suggest searching for RV or boat marine Stoves and refrigerators. We purchased our refrigerator and washer/dryer combo on eBay with warranty. Be sure to know if you are going to have electric, gas or wood burning and then what’s the watt/amp size you need!

  • Avatar Sandy September 1, 2014, 1:00 am

    Not sure what all the fuss is about a washer/dryer unit in a tiny house. The whole idea behind living in these little homes is simplifying, downsizing, and living with less. With so little storage space for clothing anyway, one probably doesn’t own that many changes of clothes, or towels, or sheets for that matter. What’s wrong with a weekly trip to a laundromat for your small basket of dirty stuff and more space in the kitchen for necessities, like food?!

    • Avatar Alex September 2, 2014, 11:54 am

      Good point Sandy. Another idea is that one can always build a separate shed for this kind of thing given the right situation. But if you can do a trip to the laundromat, why not? While you’re at it you can chunk some other tasks like going to get groceries, etc.

    • Avatar Heather January 8, 2015, 11:54 am

      The washer/dryer combo being in a tiny house is comepletely dependent on what the tenants need. My husband and myself live in a 130sq ft tiny house with a washer/dryer combo(in the exact same spot). We are very busy people who need both play clothes and dress clothes throughout the week, turn composting piles, need lounging clothes, and then the dish rags/towels from the kitchen, plus reusable napkins, bath towels(2 per person)….we wash items on a daily basis. We’ve tried storing up our dirty laundry and taking it to the laundromat, but for us we don’t care to have dirty clothes(in a bag) sitting in our tiny house for very long and nor do we have the time to sit at a laundromat waiting for our clothes to be done washing themselves. Most laundromats I’ve been to ask that you not leave your items unattended. So I couldn’t go running errands nor get things done at home. So, if you couldn’t tell, we absolutely LOVE having our washer/dryer combo in our home! We would Not want it any other way!

  • Avatar Little Feather September 1, 2014, 1:21 pm

    I love all the different styles of Tiny homes.This is nice, but I like the open space with a stair case with more windows for more natural light.I saw one style I like a lot and hoping to make that someday for my home.

  • Avatar AL September 2, 2014, 12:48 pm

    i like the wood color…but didn’t really care for the washer/dryer exposed..should have some sort of bi-fold or shutter doors that would corporate rest of the interior, indeed the ladder to vertical..not into climbing up like spider man and i’m sure not others as well…rather have roof slightly perpendicular \ than /\..have skylight instead..but that’s me 🙂

  • Avatar Jordan October 5, 2014, 2:31 pm

    For anyone wondering how long it takes to build a tiny home or the experience level required, check out “Tiny A Story About Living Small”. It is a documentary on netflix, or you can find it online for free. It is a great documentary about a young man with no construction experience who builds a tiny house from the ground up. It should answer a lot of questions, it did for me.

  • Avatar Lisa E. January 7, 2015, 7:13 pm

    This is beautifully done and I love the finish on all of the wood. However, for myself, there are certain things I couldn’t live with in this house:
    1) The ladder (really do need my storage staircase.)
    2) The pitched roof in the sleeping loft. I would be banging my head every time I turned over (restless sleeper) and I’d get a serious case of claustrophobia. (Maybe if there were skylights…)
    3) It needs a window in each loft for light and a cross ventilation in summer.

  • Avatar Liz January 8, 2015, 10:32 am

    That kitchen sink will not be fun for washing dishes. It’s too small and leaning into it will be a pain in the… back. Great otherwise.

  • Avatar Heather V January 8, 2015, 10:39 am

    my husband and I also live in a 130 sq ft Fencl with Washer/dryer combo, AC etc. My personal opinion about the sink being in the corner of the counter is that it would be very uncomfortable having the washer/dryer sticking out as far as it does as you’re trying to wash dishes….at least for a shorter person it is uncomfortable…I can say this with confidence because this is how we placed the washer/dryer and sink. For someone else I might suggest either moving the washer/dryer or the sink to a different spot or adjust the counter widths if at all possible.

  • Avatar Amanda M September 26, 2017, 10:03 am

    Please, please – can you tell me the colors that were used on the exterior of this tiny home?!
    Thank you, so much in advance!
