    pretty sure this is the one Zach Griffen built on Tiny House Nation a couple of years agoe for a Triathelete couple. Nice build and nice bike garage.

    • James D. August 2, 2017, 3:56 pm

      This was actually shown on Tiny House Nation this year on S05E12 – 370 Sq Ft Triathletes Tiny Abode…

      Designer Brian Crabb has designed quite a large number of the houses showcased on Tiny House Nation… So viewers will recognize quite a few showcased on the Viva Collectiv site…

      However, a clarification… Zack Giffin doesn’t actually build all these houses on the show, but rather joins in and helps. Providing an extra hand, some design ideas, and helps with things like custom furniture and storage options… Other than that he’s mainly an advocate for “appropriate” housing and the show helps him bring attention to it…

      Though, this sometimes helps with the costs of the build if the participating companies (everyone involved from builders to companies providing the products used in the build) take advantage of the publicity and thus help with donated materials, etc… So some of those owners have gotten very good deals…

      So this house was actually built by Total Property Solutions and Zack Giffin helped…

    I LOVE this home but especially the bedroom. There is SO much head space, room on both sides of the bed and just very pretty. The whole joint is great.

  • Zisi August 2, 2017, 1:28 pm

    Beautiful. But please, stop with the fish-eye and super-wide-angle lenses! It’s distorting and dishonest, in my opinion. And so unnecessary. You’re marketing to Tiny House aficionados and don’t have to oversell.

    • keepyourpower August 2, 2017, 2:38 pm

      Amen Zisi!
      There really is no head room in this loft. But, the pictures deceive!

      • James D. August 2, 2017, 4:24 pm

        Actually, as Tiny House lofts go it’s fairly roomy… The was shown on Tiny House Nations and the Zack, John and the owners were all shown sitting up there and still having a comfortable bit of space over their heads for no fear of accidentally hitting the ceiling…

        So the headroom up there is probably around 4 feet, maybe a bit more up to 51-53 inches, which is about the max you can get without lowering the loft and reducing the headroom below… And the skylights adds a few more inches over the beds so they have no worries about hitting their heads when sitting up in bed…

        There’s just no room to stand up straight but you may be able to crouch low without necessarily needing to crawl on hands and knees…

        • Zisi August 3, 2017, 9:25 am

          You miss the point. “Keepyourpower” and I are referring to the deceptive photos in this aticle, NOT to any video (which is unavailable on this page anyway).

    • James D. August 3, 2017, 12:26 pm

      Zisi, no… Didn’t miss the point but you can’t correct misinformation with more misinformation as keepyourpower did by stating there’s “no headroom” in the loft…

      Besides, who are you complaining to? Those running this site didn’t take these pictures…

      Generally speaking, you should always do your due diligence with any housing purchase and never rely on advertisement photos.

      That said there’s also a matter of practicality, not everyone is going to have a camera that can take a wide angle photo… Most are just using their phones and the field of view on them can be very narrow and would probably take over a dozen shots just to piece together one section of this house and would end up being even more confusing to anyone who just wanted to know what was inside the space.

      So these photos aren’t always taken with the intent to deceive but the viewers should be aware of such factors and pay attention to actual specs like the given dimensions of the house to get a real idea of the space…

      It’s generally best to just provide as much information as possible rather than worrying about any one bit of information being off as you can usually spot it and correct for it as long as enough other information is given to compare it to… So I’d worry more about the posts that little to no detailed information is given on…

  • Lori August 2, 2017, 2:50 pm

    Really like the kitchen cupboards. Open shelving is not practical IMHO.
    Makes it look and feel like a real house.

    • James D. August 2, 2017, 4:29 pm

      Depends on how it’s done Lori, open shelving can still have ways to tie everything down when moving.

      While closed shelving can still have doors open and dishes smashed if you don’t have a way to keep everything locked and tied down either.

      Some people also move so rarely that they may consider it fine if they have to box everything before moving as the priority may be able to live their life the way they want to and having to work around obstacles may get in the way of that enough for them to consider it more worth it to only deal with it when moving and rest of the time live the way they want to live…

      While there can also be a mixture where open shelving can be moved into closed spaces… Similar to closests with pull out draws, not every design has to be either/or…

      • Lori August 2, 2017, 10:06 pm

        Not everyone is naturally neat. Unless you stack and arrange the dishes “just right” they’ll look messy. For many people it would get old and tedious quickly. Also,what happens when a couple dishes get broken and you can’t find matching replacements? It begins to look mish-mashed. Doors hide a lot! Like I said, it’s just my opinion….

        • James D. August 2, 2017, 10:30 pm

          Lori, sure… Some may want to hide things, but generally speaking it helps to go tiny if you’re the organized type… Otherwise those cabinets may not be able to hide much… Generally, big houses are better for hiding messes…

          While, it’s generally recommended to have as few breakable items as possible in anything that you may be towing down the highway at over 60 MPH and keep in mind most trailers don’t come with that great of a suspension system unless you specifically have that part of the build… But mismatch could also be a theme for the house and actually fit in to the decor… So could turn a problem into a solution…

          Again, it depends on how it’s done but there are options that can make just about any arrangement practical and of course you can do it anyway you want and it doesn’t really matter what anyone else thinks because it’ll be your house and not theirs and that’s true of everyone who gets a custom home…

    • Eric August 8, 2017, 6:45 am

      Hmmm, plenty of “real” houses have open shelving instead of, or indeed alongside, standard kitchen cupboards.

      What isn’t practical regarding open shelving? Might fall out when travelling? Heck, that can happen even in “standard” cupboards.

  • david August 2, 2017, 5:16 pm

    For me, Brian Crabb’s design is one of the FIVE BEST thow designs ever!
    While some may argue that the angled rear wall is waste of space, or that Nature’s Head should redesign their horrible “hospital toilet”, or that the three entry stairs have to be shipped separately, or that the massive loft lends the underneath a “hobbit” lifestyle, or that the bathroom mirror should have been cleaned (lol), I love this thow! Obviously the “art director” Vanessa Price had excllent influence too. 🙂

    • Tom Osterdock August 2, 2017, 6:14 pm

      As James pointed out that I thought everyone knew about the show that Zack did not build the entire house since they point that out in almost everyhouse at sometime or other. But the show said that Zack designed that garage. Don’t know if that is totally true but that is what they said. Obviously a house is not going to be built in 7 to 11 days as the show points out Zach’s time. They do have some nice designed houses at viva collectiv site.

      • James D. August 3, 2017, 5:53 am

        Sorry Tom, I wasn’t aware of what you knew, and I’ve run into people who have thought Zack did everything, it’s understandable as the part they mention the builder is like 5 seconds near the beginning and rarely mentioned again for the rest of the episode, with only John and Zack shown in the final showing off to the owners… While details like the designer is usually never mentioned…

        Btw, I posted my email for you to contact me but it looks like it’s waiting for comment approval… Maybe contact me on youtube, user ZeoCyberG…

        • Eric August 11, 2017, 7:47 am

          Put me into the I thought Zac did…

          I live in New Zealand, and that is the impression you get on the TV. While I fully expected that Zac wasn’t the only one, I had no idea that he was, for lack of a better term, only an afterthought, i.e. that he was brought in to give suggestions/ideas and NOT build the entire house.

          Oh the shame. I thought everything on TV was real… lol

  • Pat Dunham August 2, 2017, 7:19 pm

    I love the look of the cabinets. It hides all the clutter and give a clean streamlined look.

  • Meg August 3, 2017, 3:03 pm

    A built in bicycle shed…fantastic!!

    • Eric August 11, 2017, 7:49 am

      Not if you can’t ride a bicycle… like me. While I applaud the design which caters to the needs of the owners that overhang is totally useless for me. Unless they made it longer and I had a bbq there for those days when it is rather inclement weather. ; )

      • James D. August 11, 2017, 10:10 am

        Eric, that’s whats great about custom build homes… They can be customized for anyone and it doesn’t matter how it was customized for someone else as each can be unique… That same bay could just as easily have been a fold down deck with grill station, for example.

        However, since you’re in New Zealand, it’s best to double check the weight as you have to deal with fairly strict weight constrictions that we don’t have to here in the states…

        But there’s a lot about the design that can be changed to better suite a lower weight threshold and can still look basically the same when it’s done…

  • Susan August 5, 2017, 10:12 am

    Very nice. Yay for the 1st floor bedroom! Someone knows my list of needs, as this looks like my dream home….

  • Susan August 5, 2017, 10:14 am

    Just noticed bedroom not on 1st floor, BUT, it works, as it’s not a crawl in and crawl out type….

  • Karen August 10, 2017, 10:29 pm

    One of the classiest tiny houses I’ve seen. I love the painted cupboards and walls next to the dark stained wood floors. Absolutely beautiful.

  • Carol August 12, 2017, 12:48 am

    I love the tub, it is one of my must haves!

    I also love the coffee table. I am not sure about this one but with one I had the sides came up and so did the center to make into a full size dining room table.
