Possible Tumbleweed Tiny House Project

I need some feedback from our Good News Bus followers and readers.



For the last year or so we have been contemplating doing a Tumbleweed Tiny Home build.  We would film the entire process through our film company Lug Nut Films and put the project up on YouTube in a series of episodes.  It would be quite the undertaking but anyone would be able to watch the video and have a step by step guide to building their own tumbleweed home.  I have just set up a new YouTube channel that would be home of the new episodes.  A website is also in the works. 




At the end of the project the newly build Tumbleweed Tiny Home would be available by auction or purchase.

Is this something you would be interested in seeing happen?  Is this something you feel the tiny home community could benefit from?  Please weigh in and let us know what you think
in the comment section below.

Snow Shoveling

We just did this very short, silent comedy film titled "Snow Shoveling".  It is sort of a tribute to the days of silent films when Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy and others dominated the big screen.

You can catch a glimpse of the Good News Bus in the background.

Comment below and let us know what you think.


Snow has to be moved....even if it is moved the hard way.

Our new project: Shot Gun, New Orleans Style House

My wife and I recently decided it was time to build a small home.  We have 7 children but we don't need much so my wife (www.houseplangirl.com) designed us a very nice, 1,100 sq ft home.  We are almost finished with it and so far we absolutely love it.

Here are some pics of the process:


Here is the foundation work we did.

Almost done with the exterior:


We decided to go with butcher block counter tops.  I think they would be a good option for a skoolie. They are very durable and cost effective.  We went with American Walnut.
