Dee Williams on PBS

Dee Williams built her Tumbleweed tiny house several years ago for about $10,000 from a lot of reclaimed building materials, which helped keep the cost low. So besides being a tiny house, it’s an excellent example of how used building materials can be taken out of the trash and made new again. I first saw this story on RowdyKittens. Read the whole story about Dee Williams on the PBS website.

Also be sure to visit Dee’s tiny house website, Portland Alternative Dwellings.

    A nice video on Dee’s home. I bet a lot more people get interested now. After they see that Dee was able to build one herself, they should be able to as well.

    I may not be as fast as Dee, but I will finish mine soon.

    Dee has built her own home. That was great to see. I would like to build myself a small home. I just need more space. I will wait to see how others are building larger small homes on wheel. I am a person who needs to be actively doing things. The small house does not allow space to do anything.

    I am happy that the trend is catching on. Small beginnings are leading to better and better design. Perhaps a taller upstairs and a sofa bed can help utilize the space better. I am an interior designer. I am constantly looking a ways to use built-in components along with small functional kitchen and bath designs within smaller spaces.

    I agree that we are a nation of over consumers. Our needs are not as great as we think they are. I will be keeping up with this growing industry.

    Best wishes on the new business venture of the small house construction company. Perhaps more of us can become home owners.
