What is my Mini Mobile Cottage going to look like?

I have come across a couple of houses that I like the looks of, I will try to acknowledge the source of the photo and a link so that you can see if they have more photos. Since this is my own design I will be making some modifications. I have purchases some Beetle Kill pine that has a blue tint to it that I am planning to do the exterior with. I have yet to decide on the color of the metal roofing.

I like what Dee Williams did with her house. She used Tumbleweed Houses design from Jay Shafer. Dee has gone her own direction with Portland Alternative Dwellings check them out Here. Here is a picture of her house.

 Jeff and Arlene did a great job on their Fencl. They also bought plans from Tumbleweed as they stated in their blog. Arlene did the windows and her attention to detail was excellent if you go look at the pictures of their build.

Todd Miller is also doing some excellent work with the Oregon Cottage Company. I like his look, they are very well done and a bit lower in price then what you get from Tumbleweed if you are buying and not building. Here is one of his houses.

I can't wait to show you what mine looks like, maybe by February 2011, more likely March.


  1. Fantastic! I have seen a few of these myself and have been intrigued by the concept and culture. I look forward to watching and learning as you go.

    thanks for sharing

    All the best and Happy Holidays!

  2. That makes two of us. I am pretty excited by the whole process, it has been a great learning experience. I am looking to what new little nuggets of knowledge I get to uncover.

    All the best to you and yours!
