The eBay auction starts at 7 pm EST and bidding will close on April 8, 2012, according to the Toledo Museum’s press coordinator Teri Sharp. She explained that funds raised during the auction will be used to finance the museum’s community outreach programs. Proud to be a part of their Small World’s exhibit, the tiny house movement’s founder Jay Shafer will be speaking about architectural design at the art museum this evening.

Although there are numerous informal homes that are far smaller than 65 sq ft, the Tumbleweed XS is equipped with cooking facilities, a small loft, a built in desk, a lavatory, and all other amenities required to live comfortably. Check out 7 other awesome Tumbleweed houses that won’t be listed on eBay, but are still pretty cool.
