About the Author

Jay Shafer is leading a move­ment that is changing the way America views housing. His revolutionary approach to house design has stirred inter­national dialogue. In his, The Small House Book (self-pub­lished, 2000), Shafer explains why smaller dwellings make good sense and how superior design can be achieved with less space. He has contin­ued to share his philosophy by creating Tumbleweed Tiny House Company through such venues as Fine Homebuilding,

The Wall Street Journal, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and at the University of Iowa’s School of Art, where he served as Adjunct Assistant Professor of Drawing for more than a decade. Professor Shafer currently lives in a 89 square foot home of his own creation.
