Jay Shafer & Four Lights Houses

Do you recall my post about sending the door knocker to Jay Shafer, founder of the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company?  If not, you can read about it here.

I've been sitting on the knowledge that he was starting a new venture - so excited for him but knowing it wasn't my news to tell... but yesterday he sent me his press release, announcing the formation and launch of his new company, Four Lights Houses.  It's going to be amazing!!  

Please join me in congratulating Jay on his new adventure! (And don't you love the company name and logo?!)

Jay Shafer will be unveiling what he calls his, “best tiny houses yet”, at this Tuesday, December 11 at 9:00 am EST.  Jay has resigned from his position at Tumbleweed Tiny Houses to form Four Lights Tiny House Company.
When asked why he split with the business he founded in 1999, Jay says, “For some of the same reasons I started designing, building and living in small houses in the first place – for more freedom and more manageability. The message and design philosophy I’d built my original company on had become harder and harder to maintain as the business grew from a one-man operation into what it is today.”
Four Lights will launch by offering Jay’s first-ever unabridged, hands-on building workshop, his plans for a tiny house village (slated for completion in 2015), and three portable houses ranging from about 100 to 500 square feet (including lofts). 

An additional house will be unveiled every month for the next five months. Jay’s designs for compact furnishings and his system for “design-it-yourself” tiny houses will be released thru on January 31.

You can receive a schedule and reminders of these events by signing up at when it officially launches this Tuesday.
