Building a green empire, one Tiny House at a time

This is green living at its most efficient – a minimum amount of space, materials and energy!

“As most people know, a major reason for the current housing meltdown was millions of people buying homes far bigger than they needed, let alone could afford. To Jay Shafer, the answer is tiny.

Shafer is the creator of Tumbleweed Tiny Houses, a company based in this, yes, tiny town about an hour north of San Francisco, that designs and sells very, very small homes.

How small? Tiny Houses’ most petite model, the XS-House, is just 65 square feet. Yet, while you might expect to find little more than a rabbit warren inside, what you actually experience when you walk in the rustic wood front door–after crossing the charming porch in front–is a functional house complete with a living room, a furnace, a kitchen, a bathroom, storage, and even a loft bedroom.”
