Hello my name is Austin Hay.  I started building my “Fencl” house in the summer of 2010.  I’m currently a 19 year old.  I built my tiny house in Sonoma County which is approximately 55 miles north of San Francisco, California. 

I decided to build this website to share my experience on how I built my tumbleweed house.  One of the reasons I decided to build a tumbleweed house is to show adults and peers that one person can help with “the big picture.” 

I truly believe it is important to keep this world we have healthy.  I have decided to downsize to help the environment.   

Many thanks for the donations I have received so far. If you are interested in donating to my project please feel free to submit via the donation link on my site.  I appreciate all of your support.

Thank you for taking the time to view my website.  Please check back for updates or follow my progress by becoming a member of my site. 

Living small,
