Saturday I had the privilege of visiting Jay Shafer (Tumbleweed Tiny House Company) at one of his free open house days at his home in Sebastopol, California.
I wanted to experience first hand his craftsmanship and see the actual house he lives in and meet him in person.
Jay had just completed a Vardo, which is a very small space. Which consists mainly of a bed in a very attractive cover. It would be great for camping and weekend excursions.
Jay is very friendly and easy to talk to and I enjoyed a personal tour of his home. It is very small, but for a single person a perfect size if you believe in a simple life and want to live in it full time.
It would also make a great weekend vacation home for a couple, with the ease to move it from place to place.
His work is of the highest quality and I would consider him both an artist and a craftsman.
I live about 15 miles from Jay’s home and have requested to come watch and shoot a few photos of his next project. So stay tuned!
Jay offers a Building and Design Workshop in several cities across the country. If you are interested in building one of his homes, I would highly recommend that you attend one of these workshops.
Here is a video tour of Jay Shafer’s house:
