Simple living in a small space might be just what you need. Big houses come with big bills and big chores and sometimes – big headaches. Which is why we’re pleased to announce the unveiling of Lehman’s Tiny House on a Tiny Homestead on April 20 at our store in Kidron, Ohio. There is no charge to attend the event, which will be held from 10 am to 3 pm.
Lehman’s Tiny House was just delivered to Kidron in late March. It is located in the garden area adjacent to the store. The garden is being transformed into an urban homestead. Lehman’s staff will finish and furnish it, so stay tuned for more photographs!
“Settling into to a cozy, inexpensive tiny house is more than a trend – it’s a lifestyle people are embracing,” said Galen Lehman, CEO and son of company founder Jay Lehman. “Many tiny houses are portable and require no electricity – supplying homeowners with off grid appliances is what we have been doing for over 60 years, so having our own tiny house makes sense.”
Lehman’s and Old Hickory Buildings, LLC [parent company of Schrock Structures] partnered to build the 240 square foot renovated shed. Tiny homes can be used as an artist studio, a storage space, a children’s play house, an office, or a full-time residence.
Popular YouTubers Off Grid with Doug and Stacy will be traveling from Missouri to Kidron to unveil the tiny house. With almost a quarter million subscribers on YouTube, Doug and Stacy show viewers how to live without electricity, and still have everything they need for heat, food, light and water. “We were sick and tired of city life and decided to go back to the old ways by living off the grid on our very own homestead,” said Doug. “We have been Lehman’s customers for years and they helped us furnish our off grid 600-square foot Tiny House.”
“Our quality of life has never been better,” said Doug, who embraced the simple life with no knowledge of homesteading or carpentry. “We grow most of our own food and have never been healthier or happier.”

Glenda Lehman Ervin is the daughter of company founder Jay Lehman and VP of Marketing. “I love talking to people who are on their journey to a simpler life. Step by step, we are all on the path to a meaningful, satisfying life. We are thrilled that Lehman’s can be a part of that journey.” Glenda lives in a woods with her husband and two children, just a few miles north of Lehman’s, in Kidron, OH. They have two cats named, surprisingly uncreatively, Baby Cat and Girl Cat.
