Dreaming of a Tiny Tumbleweed

Tiny House
Tiny houses. I had a fondness for them before I even knew what they were⏤or should I say, what they would become.


Growing up, my family owned a few acres in the mountains. Atop mega tree trunks a tiny tree house was built—complete with bunk beds, windows, and stairs with a rail.

I didn’t realize it then, but those childhood weekends in our tiny cabin on stilts would become the catalyst for a life time of feeling drawn to the mountains. And dare I say, the desire to one day have a simple place of our own to visit on the weekends.

So imagine my delight the day I spotted a Tumbleweed house on HGTV. For the first time, I felt like my tiny dream could possibly become a reality in the future. Some Tumbleweed houses travel on wheels but we hope to ground ours on a sweet patch of elevated land with the sweet scent of Mountain Laurel surrounding it.


With a few flowers in my garden, half a dozen pictures and some books, I live without envy. -Lope de Vega


Lazy afternoons, cool lemonade, and a shaded hammock. Summer is the season for dreaming. So what are you dreaming of these days?


Here’s what we received in our mail today! This book is small but packed with relevant information, ideas, and plenty of inspiration for anyone planning {or hoping!} to one day build a tiny house.


Then followed that
beautiful season
Filled was the air with a dreamy and
magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the
freshness of childhood.
-Henry Wadsworth Long
