Where can I see your Tiny House?

I get this request several times a day. Unfortunately, I can’t show the house on an individual basis. If I am having an open house, it will be announced on my facebook page. In the meantime, watch my video tour, view my gallery, and follow me on Instagram.

How much did it cost? Materials list? 

I have outlined the true costs of building a Tiny House in this article. I also have a materials list page and a FAQ page with these answers and many more.

Any tips about building?

Check out my build posts featuring tips, photos and videos. You can also purchase a Tumbleweed workshop ticket with Guillaume or I presenting the workshop.

Tips about Tiny House travel?

Check out these articles: 5 Tips for Tiny House Travel10 Steps for Tiny House Parking and Set Up and The Cost of Towing a Tiny Home. You should also browse through the Tiny House Advice section of this blog.

Where can you park the darn thing?

Think of a Tiny House as an RV, you can park it anywhere an RV can be parked… for the most part. Read about my experience with Tiny House Eviction and research your local zoning laws. I also recommend this website and this facebook group; Both are constantly updated with tiny house communities and parking opportunities.

How do you make money?

I work online as a freelance social media manager, blogger and Tumbleweed workshop host. Also, my Amazon Affiliate Links and my YouTube page generates a small amount of money. If this website has inspired or informed you in any way, and you would like to help keep it running, you can donate a small amount to Tiny House Giant Journey. Even $5 will help me continue to post and answer questions. Thank you!

Can you share my story, my crowdfunding campaign? Can I write a guest post for you?

I get many requests for sharing stories and crowdfunding campaigns. Unfortunately, this website is not set up for guest posts. That being said, I do love hearing about other people going tiny and, if possible, I’d love to visit your tiny house! Please share your story in the Visitor Posts section of my Facebook page.

Can you bring your house to our event?

No, sorry. At the moment, I am permanently parked and cannot move the Tiny House.

Want to be on TV?

My project has been featured on HGTV many times. Guillaume and I are the hosts of the show: “Mighty Tiny Houses” and Travel Channel’s “Tiny Getaway.” So the answer is maybe. Contact me below.

  1. Please respond to the below. I am writing a book that will help others but are really my devout notes on refinishing my 1962 American Coach 8 x 50 (about 500 sq ft into something far more usable by opening most of it up, and doing a complete gut job with reclaimed materials in a cold area of the USA. After that I will likely try to put together a tiny home/RV community on an RV campground for sale in a warm area. This book (one of four) will be the beginning. On many topics other books do not touch. I can tell you more via email — that is how I conduct interviews and hopefully you will know more people I can interview. I am writing a book on tiny home communities build from RV parks being sold off. I am pushing for each book to have 14 chapters, pictures and floor plans. A bio area, forward, conclusion etc., you may know every vendor possible who has the head knowledge and ability to add a place, idea, suppliers, etc to my book. Architects and builders that have new and innovated tiny home/community trailers on wheels are of utmost importance to me. Especially if they use reclaimed beautiful artifacts, wood, etc. Each person who adds to a chapter is placed in the same bio area in the back of the book and I will have a supplier section as well so people can dig by themselves. Vehicles within each community are like golf carts while big vehicles are kept in a parking lot just outside the internal community, or vespa like scooters, a electric smart car, best motorcycle, and best regular pedal/electric bike you can petal into town with baskets for food, etc If I choose your piece I will work it into my book and for recompense there will be a large bio area in the back of the book with picture, and all the info on you and what you sell for RV/Tiny home communities. I want to talk to the up and coming builders/architecture people, I’d like to print some of their plans and why they are adding what they are adding now. I consider tiny to be from about 350 sq ft to 800 sq ft and much smaller if they want. Again based on a community here and what you can buy that has most of the components there and ready to use. From tiny homes (my main topic) to the beginnings such as my 1962 10 x 50 American Coach, learning to live with lots left, decorating and renovating with treasures from the past. Please PM me back for more info (I have tons), more questions/topics, what can be sold in a community store., etc. or…whatever interests you. Remember each book will build upon the first.

    1. I want to help you but I am homeless, just won a settlement and trying to find ppl who can direct me on how to build a 1 room house for $13,000. I’m thinking of buying one of those sheds for $5,000, it couple windows, insulate, run plumbing, electric.. No idea where or how to start. At 47, this is it for life for me and only chance at stability. My monthly payment would cover rent for land but idk where to go for that either. If you know anyone who has expertise and knowledge please help me! Good luck with your book.

  2. It was a pleasure to meet you and help you at REI Olympia today. Your journey is amazing. I would have loved to meet your dog today, you should have brought him in the store. We allow that sort of thing.

    1. Haha, well we might very well come back. Thank you so much for helping us out pick our gear, we already love it!

  3. Id like to know how much to build a tiny house for my husband and I and how big is it I may need two thank you…I d like more information please call

  4. Good afternoon Jenna and Guillaume,

    We’re letting everyone in the tiny home community know that we have just launched The Great American Tiny Home Building Contest, a design and construction competition to build (or have built) a Park Model tiny home that can compete in cuteness and innovation with the more popular 8.5′ tiny homes on wheels. Our minimum width is 10 feet with no minimum length. We had originally planned to ask if you guys wanted to be a judge but I see you are in Boulder the weekend before. We’d certainly love to have you if you can swing it.

    My name is Beth Livingston, one of the developers of Coral Sands Point Recreational Village, a tiny home community offering deeded waterfront tiny home lots for PMRVs on High Rock Lake in North Carolina. First prize in the contest is a waterfront tiny home lot at Coral Sands Point (value = $55K).

    This contest is open to BOTH professionals and amateurs with a maximum of 25 entrants (minimum is 10 entrants – pretty good odds). We have already been contacted by a major home-focused TV network and they have asked us to distribute their casting application to our contestants because they want to follow tiny builds from start to finish.

    We are CURRENTLY SEEKING CONTESTANTS and tiny home resources for our contestants and asking the community to help get the word out. If you have a book or other product or a service you’d like us to include in our resource list, please let us know. And we will also be happy to promote your blog on our website in exchange for the same.

    Please take just a few moments to look over the contest details at http://www.coralsands point.com and if interested, please email us or use the form on our website to indicate how you’d like to be involved.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this message and review our site and we look forward to your response/feedback. The registration period is Feb 2 – 28 while entry applications will be submitted in early March. Competition the last week in August.

  5. I just had the pleasure of meeting these two wonderful people here at the Tumbleweed Tiny House workshop in Ann Arbor. Thank you for the inspiration you give by living your dream, safe travels, and can’t wait to pass you on the highway from our respective abodes on wheels!

  6. I’m also in SoCal. I’m in the funding and downsizing mission right now to start my tiny home build. Is there a way to come see your build some time? I’m in Redondo Beach. Please let me know. Email me any time. Thanks and great build. I’ve just never seen a tiny house in person. Learning a lot before I break trailer. Ha

  7. I saw your house going north on the 405 through the San Fernando Valley a few weeks ago. I kept hoping that you would exit so that perhaps I could speak with you, but my exit came up and you continued north. I remember think that it was smart to build your tiny home on a flat bed trailer as you would only have to pay registration and such on the trailer. The house would just be cargo and not subject to anything other than sales tax when you bought the materials to build it. My own little home on wheels is a 1975 Airstream, used when I bought it. I’ve done a lost of remodeling & restoration inside and have some more to do outside. I am glad that you have a website so I can perhaps follow your adventures. Clear roads and smooth travels to both of you!

    1. Hey John,

      You are absolutely right about the registration. Though honestly, we got ours registered after we built most of it and the DMV sees it as a “coach”, so we do end up paying more taxes but that’s still better than property taxes

      Thanks!
