Land Ark

Learn More

Land Ark has been in the making since 2010 when their founders Brian and Joni Buzarde began sketching out ideas for mobile houses on Southwest Airlines napkins while en route from Houston to San Diego. Brian was scheduled to graduate from architecture school the next year and we were absolutely sure of three things: (1) we wanted to move some place beautiful, (2) we wanted to build our own home on wheels, so we could move it where life took us, and (3) we would use the experience and lessons learned to launch a product for like-minded people.

In June of 2011, one month after Brian graduated from architecture school, they leased a warehouse space in Houston, purchased building supplies and began to personally build our prototype. Sometimes, we had the help of gracious friends and family, but mostly we toiled solo at a snail’s pace on weekends and after working hours, learning the ends and outs of constructing a house on wheels.

The labor of love paid off in many ways – it allowed them the flexibility to follow jobs from Austin, TX to Aspen, CO and live in beautiful and vibrant places. Along the way, they’ve lived in Woody in very different climates including hot Texas summers and frigid Colorado winters. They’ve been the guinea pigs for every idea we’ve had – good and bad. They’ve dealt with the consequences when things didn’t work – from storage ideas to plumbing – and have revised the floor plan along the way.

Their home on wheels has been hauled on busy city freeways, country roads and through mountain passes. They’ve experienced living in Woody at super compact RV parks with neighbors four feet away and well-maintained RV parks with space and community amenities. Their time spent living in RV parks was invaluable to understand what designs, floor plans and utilities work best for privacy and functionality.

In 2015, They purchased an off-grid mountain property above Marble, CO that is beautiful and extreme. Woody resides here full-time now…and Woody is the reason we can experience life in this amazing setting. Woody worked great in RV parks and was highly preferable to living in a standard RV, but being surrounded by such natural beauty – and making it accessible – is what Woody was ultimately designed for.

Since 2011, they have been guinea pigs for our own extensive research and development. They understand the importance of design and function in a small space because they’ve actually lived and learned through the whole process. They design based on experience and an appreciation for modern aesthetic and leave the construction to our professional craftsmen.

Tumbleweed Houses

Learn More

Tumbleweed CEO Steve Weissmann began downsizing his life in 2002. After moving into a super small home of around 400 square feet he learned about tiny houses and eventually saw his first Tumbleweed in 2006. Instantly falling in love with the aesthetic and concept, Steve started volunteering his time with the micro-company. In 2007 he became a partner in the business and took the helm as President & CEO. Steve has the longest tenure of any CEO in this industry and is the visionary who pioneered the first Tiny House RV and the first Green Certified Tiny House RV.

Prefab Building

FAQs

What's the difference between different kinds of prefab buildings?

There are four primary types of prefab buildings. Standard prefab homes are much like stick-built homes, only built offsite. Prefab tiny homes are smaller wheeled living spaces, similar to RVs. Offices, studios, and bunkies are usually one room buildings used for work or extra sleeping, and usually don't have any plumbing. Guesthouses (or cabins, cottages, or ADUs) are similar to prefab homes but are usually made smaller to act as a second home, weekend getaway, in-law suite, or rental property. More details can be found in our Ultimate Guide to Buying a Prefab Home.
