Tiny House in a Landscape

Andy Hawkins submitted today’s Tiny House in a Landscape and shares the following:

The picture I have attached is of a Tumbleweed Tarleton built in British Columbia and moved out to its new home at Windy Hill Farm in New Brunswick by its builder and owner Will Pedersen. The house now plays home to the volunteers that spend the year at the organic farm helping with their thriving CSA of which I am a member. Information on Wills build and the trip from British Columbia to New Brunswick can be found here http://tinyhousejournal.com/wills-tarleton/.

Will's Tarleton

Will’s Tarleton Trans-Canada Move

A little over a year ago I covered Will Pedersen’s build of his Tumbleweed Tarleton you can view the post here and check out all the photos of his build at the Tiny House Journal.

In October, Will drove from Abbotsford, British Columbia to McKees Mills, New Brunswick. Will drove a used 1999 Dodge diesel truck and it worked out great to tow the house.

Will and Alyson created a small blog called Alyson and Will’s Adventure to cover their move and life at their new farm home and you can view it here.

After so many months and so much planning, I drove away with the tiny house and most of our possessions in tow. Left just around lunchtime with everyone on the farm hugging me and saying goodbye. I’ve got my Ipod loaded with songs and we’ll see how far I get today. — Will Continue reading

Tumbleweed Tarleton for Sale

*** Sold ***

Grant McComb emailed me yesterday and told me about his Tumbleweed Tarleton he has for sale at what I think is a bargain basement price. Let me let Grant tell you about it:

I just finished building my tiny house from Jay Shafer’s plans. It turned out wonderful and I’ve been living in it for about 2 weeks now. I enjoyed building it so much that I’m going to
build another one.

I’m selling it for only $18,000. The trailer was built brand new and is box frame (not C channel). I paid around $3800 to have the trailer built.


The humanure toilet is working great. I’m using peat moss instead of sawdust and it seems to be working just fine. There is absolutely no odor at all. I chose peat moss because I can go to Home Depot and buy a big bag of it for $6.00. I don’t know where to get sawdust at.

I have a 10 gallon water heater for the sink and the shower that works beautiful. It acutally works better than the house I just moved out of. I have a garden hose coming from the land owner’s house for my water supply.

It took me less than 3 months to build the tiny house. I started in May of 2009. Feel free to call or email me if you have any questions or know anyone interested.

Thank you,

Grant McComb

I have added all of Grant’s photos of his build to the Tiny House Journal, these photos should give you a good idea of the quality of the build.
