  1. I really like the design of the house, inside and outside. How well the door works with the roofline and windows, how light and airy the interior feel. Best feature to me is the kitche L-shape in combination with the very clever stair. If I ever came to build me own tiny, i would look at his ideas for shure. I enter this build in the “best tiny house 2019” clip. Maybe there could bee a viewers choice competition at the end of 2019? 😀

  2. I understand “Repurposed”. But there are many building products considered “Green” because they are easily renewable. Easily compostable- Bamboo, palm, glass products-and this or that.
    I spent hours recently in a Home Depot just reading labels, signs and brochures. Gets a little confusing but I’d guess someone has published “The List”. In my area (Chicago) there’s probably a list…of items that somehow fell off a truck.

  3. Very nicely done 🙂 you can really tell he had a plan when he started this house and it’s absolutely beautiful ❤️😎

  4. Hey Bryce, many thanks for your awesome inspirations. This one’s a special treat! Love it. Can you or the builder tell us, how much it weighs? Very interesting for countries like Germany where you got a restriction limit of 3.5t including the trailer.
    Maybe he even knows the shingles’ weight? What insulation did he use?
    Thank you for your time and reading. 🙂
    Have a great day!

  5. That sure didn’t feel like 160 sq ft. I love the kitchen and the separation of the bar to make the living room an actual room. I think he’s made a beautiful home. I love your wrap-ups at the end of each vid. You are very eloquent and always pull out the positives without sounding over-the-top.

  6. This is definitely one of my favorite tiny houses. It’s beautiful, whimsical, very functional, spacious and packed with character

  7. I am from India here we don’t have the concept of tiny houses.. but would love to start one.. these videos are more inspiring and gives a way to live in cozy homes

  8. Not a huge fan of the outdoor toilet, but oh boy, has this man done a beautiful job here!!! Plus this: “I wanted this to feel more like a home than a corridor” (allow me to paraphrase). This is exactly how I feel about a lot of tiny homes. This guy got it just right, congrats!!!

  9. Very smart project. Big respect! Even though it’s not a big trailer the amount of space is huge.
    I’ve noticed just that one applience is missing – a washing machine 🤔

  10. I like this one very much. I agree about the stairs usually taking too much space and I like the way he really thought of placing the things he really wanted to have.
    A bit dark inside though.

  11. Wow, it’s like you couldn’t have found a more charming, better looking dude with the best house ever! Fantastic place!
