    I loved this episode and so glad to see someone still living in their house! 🙂

      I noticed that too, so many featured tiny houses are now nothing more than AirBnB rentals or are constantly being sold over and over. I would love to see more stories about people who actually live in their tiny House.

      Agreed 🙁 I love the show, but it’s integrity is kinda dwindling due to what we see afterward.

      I couldn’t agree more, Candide33C! I receive emails from Tiny House Listings and I’ve grown increasingly weary of the same ol blah-blah-blah speech that accompanies the THOW listings: “We built this house to live in but due to (fill in the blank) we are now building a much larger/permanent home and MUST sell this THOW to afford (fill in the blank). We’ve only stayed inside for 2 days and never used the composting toilet or taken a shower.”

      To me, this reads as very poor planning of time and resources. Very, very few of these THOW’s are being sold for Hardship Reasons: most are being sold because the woman is pregnant or after building their “dream home”, they realize that 200+ sq.ft. is tinier than they thought. After working on these homes for months and months, I’ve seen many listings where the owner just ‘gives up’ and is selling the unfinished project “As Is.”

      Soon, there will be a glut of THOW’s for anyone to snap up and save themselves all that sweat equity.

      Why blame the show for other people’s flakiness? If people have gone thru the trouble of building/ordering a tiny house, especially on the pricier scale, one would assume they put a lot of thought into it. I guess not, by what is on this thread.
      I cant understand how a couple who have a newly made tiny house turn around and now have to sell it because of pregnancy. No one told them about how babies are made??

        Funny you mention that…I had noticed quite a few saying they had to give up their place etc because of “family”…now I kinda planned in “extra” space you know not really extra, but re-purposeable space. like the “office” pullout is big enough to be a shipmans bunk , can function as extra sleeping anyway since I put support boards in the plan phase (they double as a narrow shelf under the window) just add deck, mattress, and ladder! lol…I find it better to be prepared for odd things I guess…

    In what way is this Steam Punk? A few exposed light blubs and some plumbing that is not hidden doesn’t make it Steam Punk.

    • Cahow
      June 17, 2015, 6:01 pm

      Well, Ken…I’m glad that YOU asked the tough question, about WHAT makes this Steampunk! LOL (but, I thought the identical thing when I looked at all the Country Kitchen Cabinets.) I got a good laugh off of your comment….thanks!

      The alleged Steampunk name reminds me of the free e-books that I get from Amazon that claim to be “Steampunk”: after reading 300 + pages you’d be lucky to find one single mention of a steam locomotive…and that’s IT! Nobody’s done Steampunk quite as well as H.G. Wells and the original “Wild Wild West” TV program!

        Dear Cahow.

        What a pleasure to read your words, always offering valuable comments and balanced critique. However, your suggestion that Steampunk can never equal the imaginary world created by such authors as H. G. Wells, or the deeply flawed projection of the Wild West in ‘Wild Wild West’ misses the point of Steampunk as an attempt to examine and caricature what was at the time of Well’s writing, visions of possible futures. As a contemporary art movement (although now several decades old) Steampunk does not desire the National Socialist ideal that perfection within the visual arts resides somewhere in the past, or Socialisy Realism’s dream of the promise of the future as realisable within the present.

        Steampunk merely invites anyone with an interest in its artistic endeavour to join in and contribute. In short, the milieu in which Steampunk exists is a sicioscientific arts and crafts society. Nothing more and nothing less and with artists such as Willow Friday extending the reportoire, long may it last.

        Anyway, as always a pleasure to read you.

          My first impression was “steampunk-ed out”…
          And is it just me, or are tiny houses getting bigger?

    wahoo! i love this place. what a class act. sort of a madmaxish kinda warrior unit. love the outside patina that looks weathered and utilitarian. inside has every amenity i would need, love the bath. makes me want to set it down in moab utah or pagosa springs on a creek and cook… yup! crepes filled with sauteed spinach and mushrooms and poached brook trout, topped with a mornay sauce, side of baby asparagus and jasmine basmati rice, with a chardonnay from the texas hill country. or jumbo chili dogs and barq rootbeer. either one would be great. thx for the great peek! homerun!

      I like the tiny house. even more I like the sound of the menu…. I wish I could get all the ingredients here in Central America. I have not seen fresh asparagus for 3 years! I believe that Tiny House living, less than 400 sq ft is going to be very difficult for most people, regardless of income or location etc etc etc. I can see it working well for a single person. I could do 500 sq ft. if I were not married and had fewer dogs. Realistically, for the 2 of us with our herd of 4 big dogs plus a tiny chihuahua pup, plus 2 orange tom cats, we will be fine in our next planned house of about 700 sq feet. Up a story, on columns, with parking and storage for tools and necessary gear, plus the water handling system below. Also Here I can make my own elevator with a 1/4 horse motor and a length of rope on a pulley. In our climate it is necessary to have rotoplas tanks(plastic cisterns) to collect rain water, (3 large =15,000 gallons, plus a pump, and pressure tank. Then a softener is useful to treat the city water when the cisterns run dry during the dry season. The city water is from wells about 20 miles away with lots of algae in the pipes and has much calcium/limestone. This equipment requires space which is protected from the elements. We also want to add 2 solar panels on our roof to defray the cost of the A/C, which is very expensive here in Belize. We are not looking for a system to be off grid, requiring batteries, or to generate excess power. For us & our herd, 700 sq ft conditioned space is enough for a real cooks kitchen, dining space for 6-8 people, a place for tv watching, and a bedroom. Guests can stay at a hotel. We do not need or want a spa-like bath room. We are happy with our showers and I would like to add an outdoor shower. I also would like an additional 1/2 bath so we have 2 toilets available. It can be uncomfortable in the middle of the night when 2 old people need to use the toilet. I enjoy all the tiny houses and the materials and methods for space planning. Very useful.

      Thanks, Steve. I was here enjoying the Tiny House and then you went and built such a picture of food in my head that I am now hungry. Where am I going to get all this at 11pm at night? HUH?
      And, you might want to consider becoming a writer!
      I always enjoy your comments, Cahow. They are usually the voice of reason.
      This is a nice, workable tiny house.

    sc: Well, I for one, have never watched this TV show so I can’t lay any blame at their feet. And as Forrest Gump would say, “Stupid IS as Stupid DOES,” so I guess that explains the lack of “We’re having a B.A.B.Y.?!?” and the Millennial’s not realizing the amount of room a small human requires. I guess it’s like the person who buys a baby puppy that turns into the size of a Shetland Pony and then gives it away to the pound because “…it got too big.”

    Almost always in the adverts selling these THOW, the seller lists “Why” they are selling it within 2 years of ownership and it’s usually poor planning for life events (baby/promotion/need more room) that is the reason for dumping it at a huge financial loss. Oh, well, as my Gran would say, “It’s no skin off of my nose.” LOL

    Additionally, if your composting toilet “stinks” – you’re doing it wrong. Do some research, and change your methodology accordingly. But don’t try to claim that all composting toilets stink, because they don’t.

    Unique and interesting. There’s a lot of equisite detail in this well thought out home. I like the the love seat atop the platform. Storage underneath? Or you could conceivably keep a cot underneath to pull out for (shorter) guests. The triangular cabinet facing the living area is easy on the eyes and allows a nice flow from one space to another because it minimizes sharp corners. The bathroom looks comfortable (and cool) because they built it using the entire width of the TH as opposed to cramming it in across from the kitchen. Even a mere 4-5′ in depth is a pretty “normal”-size bathroom. I’ve come to like the floating stairs often seen in THs. And for the more athletically inclined they can double as a unique workout tool. They’re rather like a tilted climbing wall. The ‘handrails’ are right in front of you. The stairs allow for a secure handgrip as you go up without you having to assume a pike-like position. I like it! Stunning floor. Even the exterior is rather unique (and very attractive) due to the choice of siding combined with touches of steampunk decor.

    I enjoy reading the comments on these sites.We’ve been living in our T.H. for several years and love it.Our glass studio is the T.H. next door. What I see as the problem is the changes in the T.H. movement. When we built we did all the build and there were non around us but now it’s become cool to live tiny. The prices have gone mad showing it’s become trendy and that drives prices up.The people trying to build an affordable home are lost in the glitz of profit mongers. Perhaps a return to where it started and living with the basics as intended would aid in our understanding.

      I dont understand what your problem is. You can still build it yourself. Having one built might be more expensive, but If you are talking about a tiny house on wheels, you cant be priced out of a market.
      You can even build your own trailer base if you have to.

        July 21, 2015, 11:28 pm

        sorry I thought my line of thinking was clear.years ago we bought 2 old car floats for $200 now that more folks are looking for them,and your competing against builders who sell a THOW for $50,000 you can expect to pay $1000 each or more.The same is happening to most up cycle items.

    Yeah, layoff! The boy’s hair was only shoulder length and he dressed in boy’s clothes. Overall he looked reasonably cared for and happy.
    The mother had the house built so she could spend more time with her kid, and some snooty person has the nerve to DESPISE her?? You are joking, right?
    By the way, that was a darn cool doll house, so shut it!

    Thinking about adding on to my house in a tiny house fashion. No fancy furniture or fixings. Just plain living in a bedroom, shower bathroom and tiny efficiency kitchen.

    I wouldn’t want the composting toilet either after I found out what is involved in taking care of them but a nice Incinolet toilet sounds the best. As far as comfortable seating, that is a personal choice due to what someone wants in a couch. Besides, I think one of the big reasons for not making furniture too important, is that people get outside of their little home and discover all that’s out there. The bedrooms lo0k like there’s plenty of headroom. I love the counter tops (what kind do you have in the kitchen). They are amazing. The furnishings aren’t overdone and that bathroom is just way too cole. Love, love, love the sink!!

    Don’t see where they get steampunk at, doesn’t look it at all. Lofts again, hate lofts. The steps/stairs, cutesy, and very poorly designed from a safety standpoint, accidents just waiting to happen. A comment was made about the roof – I agree, a gambrel roof would be a great improvement. The outside will require yearly maintenance also. Woodwork looked good tho.

  • Kay
    September 17, 2015, 1:20 pm

    I agree that the TH movement was jumped on by too many who never gave a thought to tomorrow…as in the couple who loved the place until she became pregnant. What?? They never thought about having a family?

    As time goes on, I think many will build places that realize their dreams and build accordingly. I believe the future of TH’s will be much different than it is now.

    tiny houses and small houses are not religions or political parties. They are shelters. People buy and build what they want and pay as much or as little as they like. I am bored silly by all the philosophy clap trap that is being thrown around here, where some peoples decisions are being labeled as “bad”. I look for craftsmanship and design. I expect that the toilets do smell. I have used outhouses and they do stink, even when well cared for.

    I was surprised when I watched the rerun of this show on Tiny House Nation, because this house was shown to a couple on a new Tiny House Hunters show that aired this week. They built the coolest detailed doll house, & it must be disheartening to Zack & crew to see it partially torn out in this show. I am very curious about what happened to this dream & if they made the trip. It looked as if towing was going to be a problem. I see someone said land was an issue.

    Someone help…. I’m serious on this one cause I honestly don’t understand. 2 reasons I can conceive for having a THOW, you are either trying to get past code or you want to travel. The question then becomes you have a THOW that can’t park in the area you want….why not just try to find a similar place or build a TH on a foundation? I’m in a tiny and want to build a THOW specifically for travelling. I can’t understand why someone would take the time, trouble, and expense to have one built to their liking only to give it up at the first sign of adversity. Am I missing something here?! We had to give up our little Boles Aero due to financial issues and I almost wept openly to lose it…so many memories of us in that little 16 footer. Maybe I’m just a sentemential freak of nature? Anyway I’ll get off my soapbox and hope someone can help me understand. Thanks all!

    I’m not sure of everyone but at least 15 homes have been for sale from Tiny House Nation since it started, maybe more. The last one of the season this past year is for sale, one was for sale before it aired..no pics until it did. It can’t be for money even though they charge a lot more for it, because don’t they see all the others languishing on line? They say things like they didn’t realize zoning laws (duh) or they got a new job or were going back to school but some are honest and just say it wasn’t for them. The lack of knowledge and research is mind boggling.
