The “modern” Tiny Home

Image

Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is a well know name in the Tiny Home world.  The founder, Jay Shafer (now with Four Lights Tiny Home Company), is attributed to jump starting the entire movement that is crossing the nation.

One of my favorite Tiny Home designs, is their “Mica” plan.

As described on Tumbleweed’s site,

“The Mica is our sleek and modern home. The hot rolled weathering steel siding separates this house from anything else. At 8 feet, 6 inches, the model maximizes living space without requiring any special permit to tow. In this floor plan, named the Clear, you experience one-level living complete with a full-sized bedroom, separate kitchen and bath, and great open views.”

Being a modernist and wanna-be minimal list, I’m attracted to the clean lines of this design.  I also think for my Tiny Home community plan that I hope to someday build in the desert near Palm Springs, the flat roof design makes sense-  less surface area for heat gain-.

Wood or white?

This Tumbleweed “Fencl” model shows a side by side comparison-  a wood interior or white  Which do you prefer?

You might not recognize this tiny house from the inside, but that’s the first Fencl (now Cypress 18 – Overlook) the Fisher family built in Colorado last December. This very Cypress was purchased by The Downtown Project in Las Vegas. For more information on Tumbleweed and this post, CLICK HERE  Also featured here in the Review Journal.
