A link to a Tumbleweed-like tiny house


I've been looking at Jay Schafer's Tumbleweed Houses recently, and in the comments, in response to the question "can you build this model with an actual wood wood burning stove?" someone linked to this one that they'd built.

It's not a Tumbleweed, but it's built like one. The pic of the woodstove next to the sofa makes me nervous. (We ourselves have a cabin, and we're so far from a fire department, it's not funny.)

Yeah, that is a little frightening. I assume the platform it's sitting on is actually made at least in part of some kind of... fire retardant something? I mean, it's not like heat doesn't travel through those metal feet... I wonder how most people heat their Tumbleweeds?
They have a little marine heater they use in most. There's a pic somewhere... Rats, I can't link to them. But look at the "Inside Jay's House" video here:
