The idea behind the Tiny House Journal is to show people that they can build a tiny house themselves. Using plans by Jay Shafer of Tumbleweed Tiny House Company the Tiny House Journal will give you examples of others who have built their own homes, usually on their own or with minimal help from professionals.

My name is Kent Griswold and one of the biggest questions I get over at my other blog the “Tiny House Blog” is can I do this, and how do I know what the costs will be?

The goal of the Tiny House Journal is to show you visually that you can do this, I also plan to share journals of the process and costs involved written by the builders when building their Tumbleweed home. Again welcome and enjoy the journey.

If you have a Tumbleweed home that you have built to share contact me here.

I’m interested in building a tiny house and living in it somewhere in Sonoma County. My husband and I are moving back to Northern Cali and aiming for SoCo particularly. I’m at a loss as to where I should start with regards to finding an appropriate property with proper zoning, etc. It seems that real estate agents are not very fond of the tiny house concept and most have not been helpful. Is there a good starting point that I should know about? I’ve been combing related websites as well as Craigslist and any other sites which appear helpful to no avail. Perhaps you know a specialist that I can speak with? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Margie Koger
