    Folks, the photos are so small I can’t see what’s in them. Are there some larger photos you could post so we (the visitors to the site) can appreciate the winning qualities of the plans you’ve selected?

        Thanks Tumbleweed!

    I love the tumbleweed tiny house collection. Do you make any designs in the wheels to go in a single story? All of the current designs are too tall for our travel purposes. Some are too narrow for our windy area. Do you make a shell that I could design the inside by myself? I love to arrange usage of space.

      I would love to see this also. I would like to retire in a tiny house and I doubt I will want to climb up to a loft everynight when I’m 80

      • Penny Schreiner

        I’m with you Tracey, I am no spring chicken nor am I a bean pole, I have bad knees and love the tumbleweed tiny homes, but the current selection doesn’t fit my needs.

      Penny and Tracey, wouldn’t the single-story, trailer-mounted Popomo (or its big sister, the single-story, stationary Z-Glass) meet your needs? I, too, have considered this dilemma. The Popomo is most practical for me, too, as I’m already 71.

    could we get links to the Autodesk Homestyler designs (so we can play around with them)?

  • Penny Schreiner

    Most of the designs are good, but not all patterns suit everyone. I was thinking more along the lines of a barn style roof to lower the height since that is mostly the issues I have with the tiny houses to go. It would lower the ceiling for travel and keep the headroom adiquite for daily use. A pull-out couch for sleeping, put the bathroom across the end with the kitchen open to the common area, plenty of room still for storage and function. Yes, I’m a dreamer.

    I’ve been working on attempting to use Pattern Language principles on my design and tailoring them to cherished patterns from my childhood. The 2nd place winner is so close to my design but a far clearer statement. If we stick with a “traditional” pattern I have proof it works by pointing here. Very, very neat serendipity.

    Love your small cottages, but would like to see some designed with wheelchair access in mind…
