About Meg

Meg grew up in Michigan, in a new neighborhood under construction in the 90's. Seeing houses built around the neighborhood and helping her dad with his projects spurred a lifelong interest in houses, building, and projects. She went to Ball State University's College of Architecture and Planning for her undergrad degree in Architecture, and then worked at Indiana Wesleyan University for 5 years as an intern, project manager, and finally director of design and construction in the facilities department. In 2011, she decided to buy a house for $7,000. Named Heartland House, she started gutting and renovating the pre-1900 house in her spare time and blogging about it. In 2013, she was hired by Tumbleweed Tiny House Company and moved to California to design tiny houses. Meg is featured on the Tumbleweed Construction DVD, where she hosts a three hour how-to DVD with friend and fellow tiny houser Art Cormier [www.tinysiphouse.blogspot.com]. She designed the Linden for Tumbleweed, and started construction on her tiny house in 2014. She now lives in Salt Lake City with her husband, dogs Squirrel and Tesla, and the Linden. She teaches weekend workshops for Tumbleweed once a month and spends the rest of her time doing woodworking, envisioning new projects, and being a tiny house advocate. 

The Linden tiny house is Meg's own design. Construction was completed in 2016.
