design that follows is loaded with charm, regardless of the season. Turned porch posts and an upper level Gothic
style window give it a decidedly Victorian flavor.

The prefabricated cabins pictured below are very similar in design, with the model below, right, slightly larger. However, due to the exterior treatment, the look and feel of each differs dramatically from the other.
The light and airy views that follow show how the efficient arrangement of space and interior finish can make
a small interior seem larger than it actu- ally is.
Though a majority of its designs are traditional in style, the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company also creates
contemporary style structures, such as the design pictured below.
