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. 

You can also visit our new website here:




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.

i would watch every episode. I have yet to find a good step-by-step guide to complex issues like plumbing and solar power setups.

I think that would be so valuable to people like my hubby and I who have the desire but are overwhelmed by the unfamiliarity of the task!! Great great idea!!

Use Reuse and Recycle! There are so many things that could be saved from the landfill and I think the idea of a tumbleweed
house is awesome! So individual and unique...go for it! I would think you would be asked to publilsh a written version when you have completed it! Will be watching to see how it gets done...

Same here. I'd also like you to give particular attention to the use of nontoxic materials. I'd also ask that upfront -- in other words, before even the building of the house if possible -- you would research and post info on what minimum requirements would be for the vehicle that would be towing this house. This is so anyone on a very limited budget who is contemplating buying a newer vehicle, could be on the lookout for one that can be equipped, for example, to TOW. "X" number of pounds. TYIA

I enjoyed watching/reading throughout the good news bus build. Nice work, nice pictures, and nice explainations. Put that into this tiny home build and you would have another winner. I used your bus build to fuel ideas for my RV build. My daughter and son-in-law would love to have a tiny house guide to assist them in building their tiny home. We live in the panhandle of northern Idaho and would absolutely love to watch a tiny home build that incorporates cold weather options that work. Good luck and God Bless. We look forward to the build.
