Shafer eschewed the idea of living large since 1997 after he became concerned with the impact his larger house would have on the environment. Each house from its shape to the materials used to the colors of the walls is made and designed with the future owners in mind. Shafer likens making each house to tailoring a custom suit.

While each house varies in features and designs, all are livable. A one bedroom, one bathroom home could cost less than $20,000.

Most Tumbleweed Tiny Houses are smaller than most peoples closets, and certainly smaller than most walk-in closets that celebs have grown accustomed to using. Typically, each tiny house is less than 120 square feet.

Tiny houses can be used in a variety of ways. Whether it's your primary residence, an add-on to your existing property for visiting guests or an elderly parent, or an extra office space, these living spaces can be tailored to your specific need.

Each tiny bungalow includes all the necessities: bathroom, bedroom, storage, and kitchen. Bathroom and kitchen components are slid through the front door and installed where needed.

The box bungalows are all about capturing the aesthetic of the Craftsman Movement. This means that an emphasis is placed on simplicity and natural materials.

Each owner of the home requires different needs, which means that each design is different.
