Fencl Finale - Tiny House Blog

Fencl Finale

Thursday, I had a very busy “Tiny House Day.” I started the day off by splitting some wood for next years heating, than came in and got cleaned up and ready to head out.

Stephen from Little House on the Trailer called and wanted me to come down and do a photo shoot of the Sonoma Shanty Workshop trial run. So I headed off to Petaluma and three hours of photos and hands on. More to come on this next week.


I than stopped by the Tortoise Shell Nursery to see how things were coming on the three homes Bill is working on. He was not there, so I did not get a chance to get a good look at the houses, so I will stop in next week for an update.

My last stop was with Jay Shafer and Steve Weisemann at the new location of Tumbleweed Tiny House Company to take some photos of the completed Fencl. Jay had scheduled a professional photographer to get the best shots, but I wanted to tag along and get a few myself of the completed Fencl. I have posted a few pictures here and you can see the rest on the Tiny House Journal.

Jay is heading off on Tuesday for his cross country tour so stayed tuned for updates and pictures as he takes the Fencl from California to New York.

You can view all the build pictures on our previous posts here. Update #1Update #2Update #3Update #4, Update #5, Update #6Update #7. and visit the Tiny House Journal for all the pictures taken of the Fencl under construction.

When building a tiny house you will have no need for a mortgage bond.

Kent, is that side that is walled-off in the loft a closet? The storage would be nice but I’m not sure I like visually what it does to the space.

Very pretty finish-work on the house, though! Need to figure out how to catch it on its upcoming tour.

Hi Steph – There is built in storage in the loft. I would not call it a closet but shelves. There are pictures of it here at the Tiny House Journal: http://tinyhousejournal.com/jays-fencl/?nggpage=33
Hope you can see it somewhere along the way too…Kent

This house looks amazing. My husband and I are planning on building our own Fencl this summer am I am very excited. In looking at these pics there are just two things I’m wondering. Is there a bathroom door or does this house simply have it removed for space? And is there any refrigerator unit? I would love to see one of these houses in person but I live in Alaska so I don’t think it will be possible until we build our own.

Iam getting a log cabin made by a company and would like to put it on a trailer. i would like to put it on a trailer like this to move it but the town I live in has a trailer ban so I would need it to be on the ground with the wheels off in this situation is there a way i can lower it to the ground then put it back up with the wheels on again? Also i would like to put a bunch of industrial refrigerators and stuff in it would this be difficult?

I love this one, especially the little “nook” in the front.
