I like mansions but I guess small houses are cool too
The only thing I found so odd was the toilet in the shower…
Looks like a nice house i like the bedroom it looks confortible
Sorry if i spelt that wrong
His final choice is in line with what seems like the best option: Not an
extreme large home nor and extreme small home. The minimalist approach
doesn’t need to be taken to such an extreme. You can live in a 1000 sq foot
home super comfortably, especially when you give it the kind of care and
thought for space use as people are giving these super tiny houses.
its whole house!!!!!!!!
I like the essential design of this tiny home the best of all I have seen
so far. My biggest issue is with the loft bedroom, which is the same
problem I have with most tiny homes. I’d like a second exit from up there
for reasons of fire safety.
I’d go with a larger home in the end, one that is minimalist without being
so very small. I’d also want it handicap accessible and/or convenient for
an elderly person, so that pretty much rules out the loft altogether. I’d
love for someone to take these issues (accessibility) into account. Perhaps
some are already available? I have to look.
it’s a nice idea but i find 1000 square feet is comfortable minimum. my
current house is just over 4000 with 2 couple living inside. the mortgage +
maid is cheaper per person than a decent apartment.
the thing i would love to see is all that lawn turned to edible gardens!!
No need to make the bed
Talking about saving money but he has one of those $500 Bose CD players…
uh no. Did he use his utility savings to save up and buy that over hyped
della serie ….mia casa mia vita
I like the bathroom for some reason
The cost just wouldn’t match the space in my town. My neighbors house is 2
stories, about 1900 square feet and just sold for $18K. He spent almost
that just in materials for this micro. Granted the details and quality may
be higher, but if independence and lack of debt are the issue, my house is
one story 1060 sq ft with a decent basement and was $12K.
20k for less than 100 square feet? Does no one else see how much more
expensive that is than ANY version of the supposed “debt prisons”
described? Best quote – “It’s hard to design a large house like a small
house…” That makes absolutely no sense. I appreciate the idea of economy,
but this seems more like an environmental/political statement than anything
I miss the possibility to wash and dry clothes. What’s the idea for this
I’m really interested in these homes. Would love to make one myself
No sex in this kind of home
i built 754 square feet for $17,000. his appraisal is high
he says: houses have been getting bigger for the last 50 years and recently
are starting to level off on size. Wow, so basically you can just make up
statistics or facts with zero sources or evidence right on the spot. He
just decided it sounded good. Guess we’d better all get out there and buy
us a Tumbleweed since everyone else’s house is getting smaller after 50
years of house size inflation. Better jump on the bandwagon.
he has to live in an extremely small house with really bad plumbing and an
unnecessarily bad shower experience, yet he somehow feels having a gym
membership is totally normal. makes sense he has a large bottle of vodka
next to the toaster oven. get some proper plumbing in your house and go run
outside and play for free to get your exercise.
Our travel trailer was this size but self-contained and cost $200.
To me paying $20K for 89 sq. ft. is as ludicrous as paying $500K
for 4,000 sq. ft. But its a FAD, I know that…tsk tsk, (what will
the kids think up next?)
The most pretentious communist
$224/sq foot and a custom home is usually $115-175/sq ft
Am I the only one who noticed the Photoshop program he had in his bedroom?
so you really have about 160 Square Feet, Its really starting to bug me
how these people are trying to play it off like that have it so bad, living
in a X Square foot house when they are not counting Loft space or even
counting space occupied by cabinets or appliances, not to mention more than
6 or so feet of ceiling space.
so really what is the point if these people are going to LIE and act like
have such a tiny space?????????????????????????
Has anyone noticed they always live alone!!!
This 100sq ft is taking it to the extreme. So basically, he built an RV
(instead of buying one) to get around building codes. I bet this ‘little
house’ weighs a lot more than a standard RV, which is an issue for towing.
Plus since it is towable, he’ll have to register it with the DMV and insure
it as a RV, and pay a luxury tax on it, on his income taxes every year.
My parents RV is bigger, has more amenities, and was cheaper than the one
in this video.
for the price it’s a total damn rip off, no stove top no running
water..just go buy a tent..I do like tiny houses but this one just
sucks..one of the worst I’ve seen,,,This is how not to waste your money!
and trying to sell plans! Plans for what it isn’t even really liveable ..
He might just as well be wearing a suit and tie.
Wow, there are a lot of brain-washed Americunts in the comment section.
Can anyone say claustrophobia ?
If the republicans keep stealing elections we could all end up living in
refrigerator boxes and saving up for one of these tiny houses.
I’d go nuts in such a small house. I used to live in a student room/house.
This is even worse although it looks cute.
Where I live we dont heat the whole house, just the living room so a small
garden house to live in isnt nessecary to save on money and energy.
How heavy is this?
How heavy is this?
Who else rooms is bigger than that house XD
I love this house!
the only thing i would want for this house is unlimited water, heat, and
gas for stove
How long did he live here for?
Klein maar fijn
Hey I have a small home I built similar to this but I don’t have a bathroom
and I want to add one but I don’t have money for actual plumbing and
everything so I would like to know how you did your plumbing for the
bathroom and shower and how you got the shower water warm as well
Dis man is a kinda rat
no such this as green house gas..why would you want to live in that little
It’s beautiful. I would love to know what you eat every day? Where do you
store food? How often do you shop. Do you actually cook, or do you just
snack and eat your real meals out?
my house is 4 times of this house we only have to pay 500 dollars and the
rest are free water electric
My friend say it small but i only have 3 family member mom and dad XD
internet too 😛
why do I wanna live there ._.
Interesting. My personal goal was to live in a house where I could vacuum
the whole house and not have to move the vacuum cord.
is there a way to figure out how much a small home would weigh for towing? How much was the weight for towing an 89 square foot home?
