Good things do come in small packages.
Just ask internationally recognized small living expert Jay Shafer. His small buildings have appeared on CNN, Oprah, Fine Homebuilding, and This Old House. Ranging in size from 100 to 120 square feet, these tiny backyard buildings can be used as guest cottages, art or writing studios, home offices, craft workshops, vacation retreats, or full-time residences.
Filled with photos, elevation drawings, and door/window schedules for six Tumbleweed box bungalows, Tumbleweed DIY Book of Backyard Sheds & Tiny Houses also includes extensive how-to instructions that can be applied to any backyard building project. These handsome little buildings are filled with interesting and practical details including real doors, windows, and skylights. With extra design attention to energy and space efficiency, these tiny houses can help us onthe road to a sustainable world.

The parts that did contain DIY information looked to be taken straight form a generic source. None of the DIY pages had people working on tumbleweed houses. Instead you will get some illustrated how to pages of people working on large structures. I was very disappointed by this. In one DIY page it shows you the proper way to cut down a tree... WHY!?
Overall I think they were stretching to get enough content for this book. I was hoping to get a lot of nice how to info on tumbleweeds, but I ended up getting a few pages of useless DIY. For the same money I could have bought a more comprehensive how to book form Home Depot.
I've been following the Small House movement for many years - and drawing my own plans for decades, so I'd say I'm a devotee, but not yet committed. I have purchased Jay's previous books, so I was ready for this as a second step to help me see the work involved in building my "dream home." It looks overwhelming to me as a person with some limitations, but it certainly laid out the scope of the project (at least the building's shell, not the interior).
The one great shortcoming of the book is the lack of interior shots. If there are so many ways to finish the interior of the tiny house, well then, let's see it! Perhaps the author feels this is ground that has already been covered, but I'm sure from the comments here, and the endless stream of decorating and design books, that there is a real hunger to know how these tiny homes are being used.
The designs that are included all reflect a gorgeous Craftsman/Bungalow style, with bold details and expressive color. Superior craftsmanship is evident in many shots, and the siting of the small home is exquisite in many cases. While the book does have a bit of a patchwork feel to it, Jay Shafer continues to expand his vision of the Tiny House as lifestyle and design.
One star for the DIY book that follows. It is fairly generic guide to building small sheds, makes no attempt to reference these tiny houses at all. To its credit, it is much more complete coverage of the framing processes and such than a typical DIY book article.
This is not only dreamers book but has the directions, information and inspiration to be used to build that little dream house. The instructions are clear and it even encludes the writers lore.
I am planning on my little house to go up next spring!
Dream on, and then Build!
