Today Jay Shafer from the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company started his Coast to Coast tour that goes from San Francisco to New York with over 14 stops in different cities, making the house available for you to see. He should be arriving in Reno and setting up for open house about now.

In addition, Jay will host Tiny House Building and Design Workshops in Boulder, Chicago, and New York along the way. (Click here to view more details)

Jay is taking the just completed Tumbleweed Fencl. You can view photographs of the building of the Fencl at the Tiny House Journal.

I would like to keep track of his progress and would like to request anyone who is attending his open houses and workshops to take a few pictures and email them to me so that I can share with the Tiny House Blog readers his tour across the country. 

Email your pictures and a short description or story of the open house to tinyhouseblog(at)gmail.com. I have put (at) in place of @ to avoid getting spam mail so be sure and input the email address correctly.

I appreciate your help in this and thank you ahead of time for taking the time to do this for me and everyone who reads the Tiny House Blog.

This house is for sale and if you are interested be sure and get in touch with Steve or Jay at the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company.
