Tiny Houses Tour Country in Nationwide Tour

Wed Aug 10, 2016

CHICAGO - Two tiny houses on North Riverside Plaza at Washington seem so out of place, but they aren't those tiny houses you set up on a tiny lot on a tiny foundation. They are RVs.

"The tiny house RV can move around, it is just like an Airstream or a Winnebago," Steve Weissmann of Tumblewood Tiny House Company says. "The tiny house that's put on a piece of land is an actual house."

They have named one of the houses Rose and the other one is Finn. The Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is touring the country trying to sell us on RVs that look like either giant doll houses or mini mansions. They have everything you need inside, everything except a lot of space.
