Living in a Tiny House

This is our finished tiny house, it took me one year to build and cost me just under 00.

    Good for you. You accomplished a large project while keyboard warriors
    want to hate on you. Congrats and I am sure your family is proud of each
    other which makes this home truly a home.

    You truly have an affordable Tiny house. No frivolous waste of money to
    brag about to have your home. Most of these tiny things cost as much as a
    regular home would.You are a true Inspiration!

    Before you buy a dryer consider a clothes spinner first. They are much
    more energy efficient, much smaller, they cost less and your clothes are
    nearly dry in just 3 minutes.

    It may be better if the interior was painted in a very light color. Light
    colors open a small space up. You can always add small wood pieces of decor
    to add the natural rustic feel. The shot gun is a danger hazard for the
    kids. I would recommend locking it up. Other than this…very cool.

    Nice job! I guess when you kids get older you can always add on or build
    them their own? How much land did you buy?

    You know what encourages me the most? Not just your videos and others like
    you. But, also all those who comment positively. It would be amazing if all
    of us did this. Thanks for the encouragement.

    I anticipate that the first 2 months is fun, like camping, but having 4
    other people on top of you all the time would drive me crazy. You can
    already see that after just 2 months things are erupting into every spare
    inch of space (the onions under the desk, for example). Giving the kids no
    place to escape into their own space as they get older is going to be
    problematic to say the least.

    You made some very good points. My favoriteis when you said living in a
    smaller home means having only what you need with less clutter. I’m
    currently living in a 1,650 sq ft cape cod and badly want out, but the bank
    don’t want it on a Deed in Lieu, and the housing market right now must not
    be a buyer’s market. I really would like to live smaller and with less…
    you know… simplify.

    Great little house. I wonder if you become claustrophobic in the winter
    months? Of course, if you live in a warmer climate, that question is
    moot. Regardless, I think it’s wonderful.
    I would also add that those of us who are older can appreciate not having
    a huge house to clean. :)

    I really appreciate this video because it takes away the glamour, polished
    look with fancy cameras and interviews from the tiny house videos you
    always see and shows the real logistics of building the house, and then a
    tiny home that is ACTUALLY lived in. Looks great, guys. But what are the
    plans for once the kids are older and need more space?

    Maybe you mentioned it and i missed it but what about the land you live on?
    What does it cost for that?

    I think the only thing that “shocked” me , was when you mentioned guns.you
    have 4 guns?
    thats probably the only thing that would be considered unusual here in UK
    , .

    This is awesome for now but what about when the kids turn into teenagers,
    this simply wont work..so save all the money you can now to add on to this
    at least make it twice the space. It will still be small but liveable

    Perhaps a basic Kindle will save you space on books. Your whole library on
    one device, backed up in the Amazon cloud. After all, the web is certainly
    big enough for a little extra storage space, right? :-)

    Mostly about this, I like you very much and so respect your dedication to
    your vision and human decency. I live in a a small house 20×20 with a
    small sitting lanai on front and a sleeping lanai on the back. I have had
    mostly small houses but I find that if I have a project going, and I always
    do, I have no place to leave it in place that doesn’t take up my mind
    space. Like if I am selling stuff on ebay and also knitting hats and doing
    organic farming, these things each require tools and paraphernalia which
    end up piling up on some innocent table or sitting area, or yoga mat and
    weights in the corner of a room. There is always stuff the more developed
    as a person you get, the more interests and friends and pursuits you have,
    even if just a few, there is associated stuff.
    So you have to have a very simplified life with no special equipment, no
    library of books, no kitchen counter of juicers and blenders, etc. or it
    closes in on you. All I am saying is I need another room where I can just
    create and leave it be, and shut the door in between times. Cannot imagine
    a family with NO individual interests and paraphernalia that goes with that
    unless all you do is play computer games.

    You did a really nice job on this house. It’s the perfect size too. Can’t
    wait to build one of my own.
