Tumbleweed Traveling


     This past Wednesday the Tumbleweed Tiny House was complete and ready for delivery.  It was an exciting, long awaited morning as the home rolled down back country curves and four lane highways.   


The home arrived in Atlanta, Georgia without incident.  The tiny home is nestled in the woods within a beautiful community that welcomed the new addition.  The guys (pictured below: Pav Templeton, Josh Crayton, and Chad Bonawitz) were able to complete the finishing touches that included installing a wood stove, appliances and hooking up amenities.
 
      The Tumbleweed Fencl original design includes a bathroom, but the owner of this tiny house opted for an outdoor bathhouse.  The guys build him a deck for extra outdoor living/entertaining with a screened in shower and compost toilet.
      Here are a few shots of the kitchen.  It includes concrete countertops and a beautiful a chopblock.  I've had several people ask about the wood used in the interior.  Most of which was poplar with walnut trim.  The kitchen cabinets are made of dirty maple with laurel handles.  The chopblock is a mixture of poplar, maple and walnut.


     We want to say a special thank you to the owner of this gorgeous tiny home, John Schendel.  Whose enthusiasm, hard work and passion made this project a pleasure.  Thank you for letting us be part of your adventure.  We love you !

More pictures of the Tumbleweed Fencl can be found here.  If you are interested in information about building your own tiny home please contact us.  We would love to answer any questions.  Please check back with us for more Happenings on Owl Creek and future tiny home projects.  Thanks!

Hey, love the interior look of your tiny house cabin.
I'm beginning a build of my own and also would like to install a wood stove....something not seen in many tiny houses. I like the contemporary woodstove you chose. Can you tell me which make/model it is and your experience with it in the tiny house? I'm also wondering how you were able to install it so close to the wood interior siding??

thanks
Francis Valerio

I'd like to know more about the stove, looks too short to be a Heta, it might be a Scan 50 ? OK, what is it ?? Thanks, Joe3

Francis, the woodstove is made by Morso, I'm not sure which model. The owner selected it. The guys just followed the specs on the stove as far as clearances were concerned. The Morso has tight clearances or is able to sit close to the interior walls, which is why is was chosen. I can get in touch with the owner if you have any questions about how it is going this winter :)

Joe, It is a Morso. I think I spelled that correctly :)

Francis, I hit a wrong button and deleted your comment on accident, but thank you for your words... as far as the stove, this model is more stove than is needed for this square footage. It is a really good stove. If you really wanted to heat with wood heat it is a good way to go because it has really tight clearances. Because this tiny house was built so air tight the owner actually has to open a window to get fresh air into the living space. There are cheaper and more space efficient heating options if you are willing to use some other fuel source, lp/natural gas/electric. There is nothing quite like a nice wood fire though.

Do you know which county or area of Atlanta the house is located in? I am looking to build a Tiny house within the next year and I am currently in graduate school in Atlanta, I have been searching for communities that would allow me to live there but it's been a difficult process. If not, that's alright too! The house is beautiful!

Kate Templeton said...

For privacy reasons we told the owner we would not disclose the homes location, but I can say it is in a friends backyard. Sorry, that probably doesn't help :(

When the time comes to build your tiny home, let us know if there is any way we can help.

Oh, it’s so nice that you have a deck! I think that’s one perk of living in tumbleweed that pulls people toward this lifestyle, aside from, of course, not having to deal with mortgages. :P You are free to change your backyard in any way you want to, transform it to whatever environment you want, whenever you want to. Safe travels!

I think it's gorgeous! Love the wood and the design. Can you tell us how many square feet it is, how much did it cost with those wonderful features?

I'm saving (desperately) to pay someone to build just such a tiny house. I'm trying to find builders somewhat near where I live, and Pav clearly does wonderful work! How would I contact Pav/Pav's company about how much this kind of thing would cost ect.

Kate Templeton said...

Thanks! If you would like more info please email us at katepav@hotmail.com and we can give you more information.

Kate Templeton said...

Thank you! This tiny house is 8'x18', so its only 144 sq feet. As far as cost...:). With this many custom details lets just say a very pretty penny.

Ian Breman said...

I'm curious about the fireplace you have in the house. I haven't seen one quite like it. where did it come from and cost?

Colleen said...

Beautiful tiny home! Can you tell me the paint colors/type used on the exterior? And the beautiful stained glass? Thank you!! It is charming!
