An update, before I drop some info on a NEW hands-on building workshop collaboration in North Carolina (below)…
We recently just completed our Relaxshacks.com Tiny House-Building Workshop two weekends ago, and it was absolutely incredible(!) to get to hang with a group of twenty-plus people for so long a time. It’s amazing how well you get to know and bond with people when a workshop becomes a camp-out, not to mention an all-out, tiny-house-obsessed, event. We had attendees from New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, New York, Maine, Connecticut, Kansas, Kentucky, and beyond- and luckily the weather was GREAT (we got hit with a big storm two days later!)
Aside from many guest speakers including Sage Radachowsky (Gypsy Wagon Dweller), Doug Immel (Fencl Builder), Dustin “Dr. Demolition” Diedricksen (Small Home Dweller and Environmental Engineer), Tristan Chambers and Libby Reinish (who brought out their Whittled Down Caravan), and Mariah Coz (n’ Matt!) (who lugged out their ultra-cool Comet Camper), we all collaborated on building a tiny travel trailer/tiny house. Continue Reading »
Steven over at Tiny House Listings notified me that he was in contact with someone who has Jay Shafer of Tumbleweed Tiny House Company original Tumbleweed home and that it is now listed for sale on his site. According to the owner this is the actual Tumbleweed house that started it all. Jay Shafer built this house and lived in it when he lived in Iowa and is Tumbleweed house number one.
Since then it has been a crafting shop and guest house on the new owners property in Boston. It is in excellent condition and you can get the complete details at Tiny House Listings. This is your chance to own a piece of history.
Steven from Tiny House Listings contacted me this morning to let me know about a major change happening at his website and asked me to pass the information on to you. I’ll let Steven give you the announcement.
Everyone likes free, and the tiny house movement is all about saving money, so I decided to make posting your tiny house for sale or rent…FREE!
If you have a tiny house or a small dwelling that could be used as tiny house, whether it sits on wheels, has a foundation, floats in water, flies through the air, or anything else that could be considered a tiny house, it’s now free to post it on Tiny House Listings. Enjoy…

Steven from Tiny House Listings just got back from a weekend vacation up to the mountains of North Carolina, just outside of Asheville. They rented out an 1800′s log cabin and on the property was this little tiny house. It was originally used to homeschool the family’s 9 children over 100 years ago. Since then it has obviously been renovated and modernized, but it still has rustic charm. Today it’s used as a bunkhouse for the owner’s many grandchildren when they all use the house for get-togethers.
Thanks Stephen for this beautiful Tiny House in a Landscape photo.

About two years ago I learned about the tiny house movement through Tiny House Blog. The more I learned the more I wanted to know and see. Before long I found myself wanting a tiny house for myself.
I searched around the net and found lots of tiny house builders. The problem was there was no central place I could search for tiny homes being sold.
So I decided to create TinyHouseListings.com. People wanting to buy or rent tiny homes can browse through listings in there area. They can also signup for the newsletter to be notified when new listings appear on the site.
Tiny house builders, owners and landlords can post listings to the site for a small fee. Although the site is still new, it already receives hundreds of visitors daily. Tiny House Blog readers can post their listings for free by entering the coupon “tinyhousecoupon“.
My hope is that this site will help bring tiny house buyers, sellers and renters together and help add even more steam to the tiny house movement.
If you have any questions for me or ideas on how to improve the site, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
