Being designers, we like to try to keep up with what is going on in different areas of design; in what ways the envelope is being pushed. One of the most exciting developments is always when things are designed to be functional and really really small. Cue the Tumbleweed tiny house company where the houses are well… teeny and tiny… as described.
Since we last posted about the Tumbleweed tiny house company, they’ve completely revamped their site and they will be adding a whole slew of new tiny houses (can’t wait!). Their biggest house now stands at a majestic 774 sq ft. Their smallest at a proud 65 sq ft.
Seen below is the Harbinger at 297 sq ft (not including the loft).
Jay Shafer, the founder, has done amazing things with very little space. The floor plans continue to be my favorite to peruse. It’s great to see such a small space used so efficiently. Bigger builders should take a serious look at his body of work to see the improvements that they could bring to their oversized 2500 sq ft behemoths — at least by comparison.
The only thing missing is seeing one of his houses done up in a more contemporary style. Not that it needs to be all glass and stainless, but something a “tiny” less country, and dare I say, a “tiny” bit more rock’n'roll.
