Joel Fleck's Bad-Arse Tiny House On Wheels....

Don't Miss our TINY HOUSE BUILDING and DESIGN, HANDS-ON WORKSHOP- Nov. 15-17th in MA! More info HERE.....

     A little ways back I had the chance to visit the UBER-INCREDIBLE Sonoma County Fair in California, while out there to guest speak at a Tumbleweed Tiny House Workshop. I snapped many photos of the fair's "Tiny House Town" exhibit while there, and more, which you'll eventually see!

    ALL the houses were great, especially the new Tumbleweed LINDEN- video coming soon! One house I had extra time to hang in though (he was generous with his good whiskey, and made good conversation ta boot) was that of Joel Fleck. Joel's house had some really inventive, and effective, design elements, and I wanted to share a few photos I took. I've recently read that its somewhat based off the Tumbleweed Tarleton design, but whatever the case, its a great house, with a lot of thought put into it, and a wealth of Joel's own touches- there's no doubt of that. Thanks for the tour Joel! (I was an idiot and didn't take a short video tour of this place, for whatever reason, but Joel, if I'm ever back out that way, let's set it up (and finish that whiskey)!

I like this well lit, food prep area/bar- one with a decent sized refrigerator too!

A small couch, that can double as a day bed is always a good idea.... small houses without lounging space get old real fast.
Joel's sleep loft is accessed by a hanging ladder that can be stowed above when not in use. Its not something that will work for everyone, but he's a young dude, and can manage easy. His sleep loft is also made much more spacious with the addition of two dormers in his roof.
Even more storage beneath the couch/daybed....gotta have it!
