When Jay Shafer first built the Tumbleweed House, I doubt he imagined it would become the phenomenon it is now. Granted, Jay isn’t the first one to build these types of houses, he’s arguably the progenitor of the current enthusiasm of living in small self-made dwellings while maintaining a high quality of life. The latter seems to be overlooked quite a bit among the McMansionites who seem to live to work rather than work for a living, just so they can maintain the appearance of happiness.
