Announcing the Amish Barn Raiser by Tumbleweed

amish barn raising

Over the years, we have heard from tiny house builders that it could take 100-200+ hours to complete framing and sheathing phases. Why not provide some help and heavy lifting for builders this spring?

Tumbleweed now offers the Amish Barn Raiser. It’s a complete “shell” assembled by our Colorado-based Amish builders, the Fishers, who also build our ready-made homes. With over 50 years of combined experience in building homes, we honor and offer their experience.

Barn Raiser details:
Stages of building the Barn Raiser:

The fully-framed shell can be ordered for 18, 20 and 24- foot homes, all built on a Tumbleweed Trailer. After stick-building is complete, the house is sheathed with zip board and a weather resistant roof. It is well-constructed with Simpson Strong Ties, hurricane clips, and engineered wood. The windows are framed but not cut out, while the front door is cut out. Dormers and a complete metal roof are options.

Prices start at $13,000 and there’s a $1,000 discount if purchased by February 28th. The Barn Raisers may be delivered throughout the U.S. except Hawaii (see fees) or picked up free in Colorado Springs, CO.

Buyers may pay with a loan, credit card, check or wire transfer, and will need to complete a sales agreement. We have 0% financing available (up to 18 months) for people with credit scores over 680, and here’s how to apply:

Loan Application:

For spring builders, please consider ordering soon because the lead time is 6-8 weeks depending on trailer deliveries.

The outside looks great. Will there be pictures of the inside of this tiny house soon?

Everything I have seen that says built by Amish workers has been the very best quality. A proud tradition of excellent workmanship!

After living in an RV for two years, I prefer my tiny house anchored to a concrete foundation. I like the stability. Even larger mobile homes seem to vibrate and/or move when the wind blows. And the trailer adds to the price a lot.

With all of that said, I would rather have an Amish built “Barn Raiser” then an RV trailer!

I go bananas looking at pics of just the outside of any TH. Honestly, guys, you’ve got to get in the habit of including interior shots. Even it it’s totally empty, it gives us an idea of the interior space we have to work with; this is important intel.

I heartily agree with Mr. Giacomelli’s comment about Amish quality. I was not aware that today’s Amish wear… GASP… blue-jeans, but perhaps I am thinking of the Old Order or some other group. Anyhow… I know that the Amish are sincere Christian people that reflect the teachings of Christ in their daily lives, and were I to be in the market for this kind of pre-built shell of a small house, these good people would definitely get my business.

I think that because the Amish consider posing for a photo to be prideful, the gentleman in the picture is not one of the Amish builders.

And I agree with Lisa that without interior views, I get rather frustrated.
