Tumbleweed Tiny House Co. green workshop set for Seattle (Photo gallery)
Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is hosting a workshop in Seattle on January 12-13 with the keynote speaker an actual Tiny Home owner.
In 2004 Dee Williams purchased her small house plans from Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. She built her 84-square-foot home using recycled materials and has lived in it ever since. Williams' two day talk will include shared building ideas and in-depth information on the philosophy behind tiny home living.
Williams' brand of green living has complemented the Tiny Home movement, making it easier for Tiny Home designers, such as Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, to introduce affordable housing to the masses. The Tumbleweed Tiny House Company has set up several events around the U.S., such as the one in Seattle, to provide the public with real Tiny House dwellers who are using their small homes to make a big difference.
"The cost of owning a house was socially not what I wanted to be about," Williams said. "I downsized, well smart-sized, myself. My five dollar a month utility bill makes me feel like a winner. Because of my Tiny Home I have developed a better relationship with nature. I'm looking forward to sharing all of these great experiences with the people of Seattle."
