    That’s awesome. That looks like the house kits that this guy sells. I just watched a documentary on tiny house living that features these types of houses. Apparently, the housing commission made it illegal to have a house smaller than a certain size, but this guy gets around it by putting his houses on wheels. Here is the link to the documentary:

    The Tumbleweed FENCL Tiny House is at my place. I’m “babysitting” it awhile. For tiny house enthusiasts/dreamers there’s a Washington D.C. Workshop — Design & Build A Tiny House — coming up on Saturday & Sunday, June 23-24, 2012. For more details here’s the link: http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/products/washington/

    I love the concept, but I’m sure DCRA would have a field day with something like this. They’d take one look at it, and immediately assign 20 people to figure out how to screw the owner.

  • Very cute. I love tiny houses.

  • It’s on wheels in a driveway. I walk past it every day and have wondered the story behind it. The people in that house put a LOT of work into renovating and cleaning up the yard, but I didn’t expect it was to put another house in!

      The Fencl Tiny House is parked in the driveway TEMPORARILY. We’re “babysitting” it awhile OR until the upcoming workshop about building tiny houses Saturday & Sunday, June 23-24, 2012, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

  • I don’t quite understand the tiny house idea. I’ve seen the models and looked at the websites. They are certainly cuter than small mobile homes or small modular dwellings, but otherwise what is the advantage?

    • Because they are small they require fewer materials and encourage a more sustainable lifestyle. They are more affordable than traditional housing and allow for greater density (potentially). There are probably other reasons, but these are the reasons I like tiny houses.

      I think they’re best suited to be really nice hunting cabins.
