In a series first, the finalists must design the interior and exterior of an entire house – tiny house of just 99 square feet. Each finalist must demonstrate ingenious creativity and savvy space-planning skills in order to execute an inspiring home design that is both comfortable and functional. As carpenters from other HGTV and DIY Network shows arrive to help the finalists complete their work, mentor David Bromstad will coach them as they interact with their crew on-camera, just as they would in a real HGTV show.

Tumbleweed Tiny House Company introduced the newest member of their Tumbleweed family. The Walden is only 117 square feet – and it's not even the smallest house they sell! With a ready-made house costing around $50,000 it might get you thinking about downsizing.
Built on a 7' by 18' utility trailer, the Walden features a stainless steel fireplace in the living room along with vaulted ceilings. For its size, this tiny house feels roomy and comes with lots of storage space. Even though this home will fit a queen sized mattress in the bedroom loft, it might be a little tight for a couple. The kitchen is the largest when compared to other Tumbleweed houses on wheels including a refrigerator, sink and 2 burner stove top. The small water heater is located between the sink. There is even enough room to add a dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave or toaster oven.
Affordable to build and full of natural light, the Whidbey house plan is the newest offering by Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. You have the choice of having one (461 square feet) or two (557 square feet) bedrooms in this single story small house.
Surprisingly, both options have a very large loft space at 6’8″ tall over much of the space. Accessible by a drop down stair ladder the square footage of the loft is not included in the total square footage as the sloped ceiling “doesn’t officially qualify as a habitable room.”
The Whidbey is designed as a single story house with the choice of 1 or 2 downstairs bedrooms. Its simple design makes the house affordable to build, and full of light. The bedrooms have ample closet space, and the house makes use of its pitched roof for additional storage space or whatever else you choose to use it for. I do not list the upstairs square footage because, with so much sloped ceiling, it does not officially qualify as a habitable room. The house is 17′ 6″ tall.
A dishwasher, full size range with oven, and built in microwave are included in the kitchen. The one bedroom house features a washer/dryer closet just off of the kitchen. The two bedroom house has an under counter washer/dryer in the kitchen. Air conditioning can be added to the home.
As with all Tumbleweed Tiny House’s the construction plans are what you purchase for the house of your choice. These are designed to be built on site and it’s recommended you talk to a licensed contractor to construct the house.
