My kitchen is not very elaborate, I’m off the grid, so I don’t have a refrigerator; I have a cooler. Beer & half & half. What more do you need?

On February 18th Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is hosting an open house designed to help individuals who are curious about, or considering becoming part of, The Small House Movement. The event will run from 12:00 to 4:00 pm and is located at 1617 Conger Ave. NW. Olympia, WA 98502. The open house takes place at Dee Williams’ own tiny home and backyard, featuring her 84 square feet of living space. Ms. Williams has been a tiny home owner since 2004. Attendees are invited to attend the free event armed with questions, concerns and a willingness to seek out more information on Small House lifestyle.

Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is the foremost leader in Small House design. The company offers workshops throughout the country, highlighting model homes and their actual owners. Each workshop is constructed to be an informative event discussing the movement and what tools and costs are really associated with building one of the homes. In addition, Dee will be speaking at a full two day workshop on February 25th and 26th in Seattle, Washington.

“Seven years ago my answer was to build a little house. I got rid of my mortgage; I got rid of most of my personal possessions and downsized myself into a little tiny house. One bedroom, four wheels, seven windows, 84 square feet of living space. It’s got everything I need. A place to cook, a place to pee, a place to hang out, a place to be Dee Williams,” said Ms. Williams of her free way of living. “My kitchen is not very elaborate, I’m off the grid, so I don’t have a refrigerator; I have a cooler. Beer & half & half. What more do you need? And that’s it, it’s really true.”

Dee Williams has been featured on the cover of Yes Magazine and in Time Magazine. The February 18th event will help people learn from Ms. Williams’ expertise, while also providing attendees with tips on designing their own home, the financial benefits that come with downsizing and the positive effects of participating in this revolutionary lifestyle. Participants have the opportunity to meet with other like-minded people and learn what it is like to truly be part of a community!
