Buy a Tiny Bit of History

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.

Forget the house, I want the YARD!

Is the $49K for the lot and house? I assume it’s just the house. Can’t really see the value in a used one, when the new construction is pretty similarly priced….

I think the asking price is mainly for the uniqueness of it.

But it raises an interesting question: do tiny houses appreciate in value? Or are they not really an investment but an expenditure, like a car, that will always depreciate in value?

    I think, without doubt, tiny houses (especially those on wheels like this) will depreciate. It’s basically a travel trailer made out of wood. I also agree with Lucas that the house is overpriced (even if it were brand new!), and calling it a “piece of history” is awfully pretentious.
