I love your ‘together’ house. It’s great that you have the extra craft room and that you are home tutoring.

mean while the government tax rapists give them selves a 30k pay rise each year and are able to live in a real house.... people are being forced into small homes or homeless...or living in cars or vans....what a life right ?, bring your family and friends over and hang out at your car and public toilet. but hey lets make laving in a shoe box look fantastic right ?.... yeah f..k off.

It’s probably easier to live in the summer time because the kids probably will play outside a lot

Ah yes! Where people willingly live in dog kennels and think it’s trendy! Thanks Al Gore! Mean while Al Gore has 4 Manson’s, one of which is right on the pacific coast of the USA! So much for him saying the coasts are going to be drowning due to global warming! 🤣

This isn't really just a tiny house. They have multiple buildings around, and a large workshop. All of which can be utilised for day to day things, and space to get away from each other... It's awesome that they have made all that work for them though. Very smart, very cool. And i love the house. this builder really knows what he's doing.

Did they own that land they are living on or are they renting in somebody’s backyard. I don’t know where I would park this kind of house in my city. I don’t think they would allow it

Final Ranger (21 days ago)
I just want a family example where the kids are all in their late teens. see if they enjoy the bunk beds ;]
im marjorie (21 days ago)
a lot here are so worried once these kids becomes teenager..in my country we always share a room it's not a requirement that each kids/teenager should have their own rooms and if you're unlucky you will sleep on the couch😂..they can move out once their 18 or once they get a job..as long as these parents gives all the things they need & good education..a lot of family putting most of their money in Mortgage/rents makes them hard to provide the needs of their kids plus the time being with them coz they have to work hard or work extra just for the mortgage..I hope someday i could have a 'tiny house' with my future kids..the bond in this family are amazing..💖

I mean I dont mean to judge these people, but I get anxious just thinking about this crammed living situation. Its kind of unfair to your children I think.
nandinos (27 days ago)
I just saw another tiny house video with a family of 5 as well, but their kids had the worst triple bunk situation (double really and the third was literally on the floor!). Yet they had a massive "master bedroom" for the parents. Francois and Sarah Lee did a brilliant job for their 3 kids to have independent spaces despite being in bunk beds.
Julia Of All Trades (27 days ago)
Sweetest, cutest family :3 <3
Arial Reberry (28 days ago)
They should've added curtains to each of the beds so that at least the kids could have some privacy. Bottom bunk would have curtain running from wall to side of the middle bed then for the top bunk and the middle bunk would have a t-intersection pipe and the curtain for the middle would be longer than the top bunk ones. Also why isn't there anything separating the bathroom from the kid's room or even the kid's room from the living room? I mean it probably keeps it open but they probably want separate rooms because there isn't any privacy between them and the outside rooms.

it seems to me that in todays society, there are a LOT of people who are craving to get back to a more simple type of living, and also a more closeness to nature. its a clue as to how complicated and stressful society has become. and our spirits are guiding back to a more natural way of life. less excess. less technology, more solitude, more natural way of living.

I’ve been following your videos for 2 years now.. and you never cease to amaze me Bryce!! I feel it’s high time we embrace the ‘tiny’ concept in India.. planning to construct a fully functional tiny home in our newly bought piece of land in South India.. wish me luck!! Might take years to finalize our project.. but we ll invite you over for the house warming ceremony for sure!! Welcome to tiny houses in India..!! Keep up the good work and God bless!!

This Tiny house was made with great taste. An advice though, you should try to engage more the women in the conversation. I noticed that in these videos, the tour is for its biggest part done by men, it could be a great idea to balance it out ! Thanks for your work

This tiny house movement is. Not properly use as living homes . only as. Recreation and that is sad as many people live in homes like that. And are comfortable.american think it's new. But people are happy with the way things are going.so your fun house is only a game.

Technically, it is not tIny house living because they have a cluster of structures that serve their different needs. The parents have their workshops, there is a guest house, there are store rooms in the workshops and then there is the main tiny house. You can really profess tiny living if you only have that one structure where you live, eat, sleep or work. The tiny house is very functional but it feels like a box and there is no causiness or warmth in the structure. Fortunately, the parents seem to be warm and loving folks so it does not matter really about the infrastructure of their tiny living.

Love their tiny house and this family. It’s just, I live small, not tiny but small. I live alone with my now teenage son and he’s got the one bedroom we have, I sleep in the living room and we have two cats. It was kinda okay when he was little but it was horrible when he was sick!!! (Especially stomach flu😖) Laundry everywhere and even more horrible when we both were sick!!! And I only have one child. They probably manage or none of them ever gets sick? That would be my only thing I guess 🤔 Plus now that he’s 17, it’s almost as if our house got even smaller haha. But I’m thankful that I’m still able to pay for a roof over our head and it’s ours no matter how small 🤗 Apart from the being sick thing, they have a great tiny house 😍

Thank you for not adding subtitles when someone speaks with an accent. Always bothered me when reality shows on TV add subtitles to anyone with an accent, even if there's no problem understanding them.
