Building the Tumbleweed WeeBee

Jay Shafer of Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is a designer specializing in sustainable architecture and urban planning.

He is known as the guru of tiny houses and has a real following growing around the country. Jay was recently featured on the Oprah Show.

I live about 20 miles from where Jay is located and hope to tour his tiny house pictured above in the near future.

Jay has many designs to choose from and all geared toward the tiny house market. These homes are stick built or the conventional style building that most of us are used to. Mark Terrano’s recently completed the tiny home pictured below based off of one of Jay Shafer’s plans.

Below is a short movie of the construction of a WeeBee house from one of Jay Safer’s plans.

For more information on how you can get his plans and build one yourself or have him build one for you, go to his site at: Tumbleweed Tiny House Company

I just found your blog, which is fascinating. Flipping through the archives I don’t find anything pertaining to the MadHousers, who build tiny shelters for the homeless.
I think you’ll find the construction and development pages of interest.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for sharing that site. The construction of a simple shelter is great and I think I will do a post on it in the near future.

    I think Jay Shaffer sold his part of Tumbleweed Tiny Homes to his business partners and started a new tiny house business called Four Lights Tiny House.
