Tiny House/Tumbleweed Fencl Photos from our DC Workshop

A Tumbleweed Fencl- this particular model was built by "Big Bill" Rockhill at Bear Creek Carpentry (   

 Better late than never! I've since hosted the Chicago Tumbleweed Workshop as well (I'll post photos of that soon), but here's a few Fencl and classroom shots from Washington, DC- another GREAT group of people! Jan Kenney, who lives in the Tumbleweed that Gregory Paul Johnson once owned, and the Boneyard Studios Group ( were our guest speakers too. Aside from it reaching 104 degrees in the city when we arrived, and a freak tornado-like windstorm one night that had trees and power out everywhere (we were untouched, thankfully), all went very smoothly- the tiny house gods were on our side apparently!

The NYC Workshop that I'm hosting is October 20th and 21st in Brooklyn- I can't wait!

My other three-day, hands-on, tiny-house-building workshop is Nov 2-4 in Stoughton, MA- we only have about 2-3 spots left now. kidcedar at gmail dot com to sign-up.

I love the top photo, and its one, of about another 1000 or so I have to pick from, that I might put in the next book that I've been working on- a follow-up to my book "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks".

I'm STILL (and will be for some time) looking for Fort, Treehouse, Shed, Cabin, Tiny House, and Container House photos- one's you've taken or built for another project I'm also working on- YOUR CHANCE to be part of a cool coffee-table style book! kidcedar at gmail dot com.
