Jay Shafer

Jay-Shafer-Turning-TinyJay Shafer is not the first to have designed, built and lived in a little house; but there is probably nobody who has done more to popularize and politicize diminutive dwellings since Henry Thoreau. Jay founded his first, now defunct, company – Tumbleweed Tiny House – in 1999. Shortly thereafter, his pivotal Small House Book was released. Through his writing, international media appearances, and efficient home designs, Jay Shafer continues to bring little houses and the simple, sustainable lifestyle they can afford to the mainstream.
