I downsized, well smart-sized, myself. My five dollar a month utility bill makes me feel like a winner.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 12, 2012
Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is hosting a workshop on July 14th and 15th with the keynote speaker being 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. Ms. Williams’ two day talk will include shared building ideas, instruction on how to build a house, and in-depth information on the philosophy behind tiny home living. The workshop will take place at The Health Museum and tickets can be purchased by visiting http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/products/houston
Dee Williams’ brand of green living has complimented the Tiny Home movement, making it easier for Tiny Home designers, such as Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, to introduce affordable housing to the masses. Tumbleweed Tiny House Company has set up several events around the US, such as the one in Houston, 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.” says Dee Williams, who recently was featured in Time Magazine and on the cover of “Yes” magazine. “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 Nashville this month.”
Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is proud to have Dee Williams as an advocate for the movement and their company. The Houston workshop takes place daily from 9am until 5pm. Tickets are $399.00 and seating is very limited. Attendees will learn the fourteen basic tools needed to build a Tiny Home, how to select the best materials, the types of heaters and toilets best suited for these homes, and valuable information on window sizing and fire codes.
Tumbleweed Tiny House Company isn’t just a business, it is a movement! With over twenty small house plans to choose from, the company designs homes with a socially responsible platform. Tumbleweed markets houses that range from 65 square feet to 874 square feet. The company is founded by tiny house guru Jay Shafer - who is a recognized leader in popularizing the tiny homes concept.
