Tumbleweed Houses

Since 1997, Jay Shafer of the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company has been living in homes smaller than most people's closets. Though tiny, these cozy, cabin-esque home designs somehow fit everything you need inside them: a workspace, bedroom, bathroom (with toilet and shower) and living space. Some designs include a porch so the homeowner can sit out and enjoy the open spaces.
