With the housing market down, ever wish you could just build your own home? Wouldn’t it be great if that home was also portable? The Tumbleweed Tiny House Company will show you how to design plans for building yourself a miniature functional house. It drops right on top of a trailer hitch and you can roam the country, enjoying the sights and avoid making mortgage payments for 30 years.
This may seem like a far-fetched idea, but many people are actually doing it. The Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is actually hosting a two-day workshop this weekend in Dallas to educate anyone who wants to join the tiny house movement.
At the workshop, a tiny house expert will teach you the skills you need to build your own portable building. They will teach you about material selection, insulation, venting techniques, cost efficient construction, roofing, and guarding against condensation. After the workshop you will be on your way to the local hardware store for all the materials you’ll need to build your new tiny home.
The tiny house movement has been catching on across the country. Many people are deciding to live in smaller homes like these to avoid paying expensive mortgage payments. The people who choose to live this lifestyle are okay with having only what they need and being happy with the things they have. All of the essentials of a big home are in these mini homes, but just on a smaller scale.
The cost of the two-day workshop for creating your own tiny abode is $399. The Tumbleweed company will also sell you ready-made plans for building a tiny home if you are already good with your hands for just $89. So if you are looking for cheap housing you can take with you wherever you go, you might want to learn how to build one of these tiny homes.
