This is a funny video by Rhett and Link who are famous comedians on YouTube. In this episode of their Good Mythical Morning show they talk about the tiny house movement. And they ask their viewers the question, could you live in a tiny home?
Rhett seems to pretty interested in and excited about the tiny house movement while Link is amused but pretty skeptical about it. So I thought you might enjoy watching. It’s definitely different than normal tiny house videos because these guys are just funny. They also show you a few tiny houses in the video (below) too.
Please enjoy and feel free to re-share with your friends who might also like it down below. Thanks!

~yawn~ Okay, perhaps someone with better stamina for watching 12 minute youtube videos can make it all the way through but I gave up the ghost at the 4 minute mark.
I found it irksome that Rhett (the bloke with the beard) was calling himself a member of the Tiny House Community when he neither owns one or has stayed in one. Rhett taking umbrage over Link (dark haired bloke) saying “They look like a shed. They look like a playhouse” is just plain odd.
The fact that Rhett feels the need to “embrace” EVERY movement that’s out there on Twitter erodes any sincerity that he might try to garner for that particular movement.
I didn’t even make it to the 4 min mark.
~snort~ I guess neither you nor I are part of their Target Demographics. 😉
But I’m still giving your comment a virtual Thumb’s Up! 😀
Agree. This was not entertaining or informative. 🙁
Usually for the long videos I watch the timeline previews and skip to interesting parts. This time I didn’t even do that. I think their video or commentary belongs in a chat forum.
Agree….agree. Not impressed.
Hey, if his heart is in the THM, then I’ll accept him. I’ve considered myself part of it for 6 months but just bought our trailer today. Woo-hoo……. Here we go…..
Yes-I would live in a tiny home as long as it contained the washer&dryer and a space for my husband to be away from me and do all his computer stuff
Personally, hopefully, just because Rhett doesn’t live in a TH (yet…?) doesn’t mean he can’t be apart of the community or “movement”. I am happy that more & more people are interested in the ideas behind the TH movement. (I didn’t know we needed to pass a test to be apart of it. What are the Tiny House Community Guidelines, again, please? :() Guess I’m not apart of “the community” either then, even though I’ve been doing my best to move in that direction, & to most people, we (my family & I) are definitely already living tiny & simply. I love the photo of L41 home: we even contacted the awesome architect about it in 2010 but it was unfortunately out of our price range (I love the idea of it & it’s totally off the grid, too!!!). 🙂 I’ve also loved “off the grid” since I was little but I’m not there yet either, but that doesn’t mean that we won’t be there soon. I hope we can all be more welcoming to people, instead of alienating. We are all different & what works for us is probably different than for others. “To each his own” & “To thine own self be true.” Inclusive, yet different, can be fun, too. 🙂 Just my little thoughts, if they aren’t floating someone’s boat, let them float happily on by… Best to everyone. 🙂
Hi, Al. No, no one needs to “pass a test” to be part of the Tiny House Movement. LOL
Allow me to copy quotes from the above video, for clarity sake: (these are 100% Rhett’s statements)
“There’s a movement going on, where people choose to live in incredibly tiny homes.”—Neutral, informative statement.
“Whenever I hear that there’s a “movement going on”, I’m immediately interested.” Neutral, personal statement.
At the 2:10 mark: “That is something that Tiny House People…LIKE ME…I’m gonna become one right now…” Claims to actually BE a “Tiny House Owner” by inference. NOT cool to the actual owners of THOW. Had he said, “That is something that people who OWN Tiny Houses”, then he’d be accurately representing the movement.
At the 2:22 mark: “WE IN THE TINY HOUSE MOVEMENT…okay, I’m not gonna do that, I don’t wanna offend anybody. The People in the Tiny Home Movement…” NOW, he corrects himself.
So, my issue with Rhett is his temporary alleged claim to be a Tiny House Owner, therefore having a ‘say’ in the matter. A small point, to be sure, and I realize it’s a comedy. But, from my view point, that’s like saying that because you ate carrots with your pot roast last night, you’re a vegan. No, Sunny Jim, you.are.not! 😀
You may still take exception to my comment, AL, but at least you now have more clarity as to ‘what’ I was objecting to in the video.
Thank you, Cahow. Glad to know there is no test. Probably wouldn’t have done too well anyway.
AL: if there were a test, I’d flunk, for sure. 😉
Personally I like the fact that Rhett is bringing a broader audience to the idea of the TH movement. Not all have embraced it yet, but it goes without saying that on a planet where resources are become more scarce, it is our responsibility to think smaller and live more minimal. I do find it sad though that many of these homes are still out of reach for folks due to their cost. Wheelhaus is a great example of that. Although their homes are beautiful, they are a perfect example of another builder getting rich off an idea, rather than helping to lead a movement that builds smaller for both affordability and the planet. It’s nice to see stories of those who are using repurposed materials and are building themselves to help minimize their out of pocket expenses while reducing their carbon footprint.
I lived on a 40′ sailboat with my wife and daughter for 16 years while we put her through private school and college so yes, I can most definitely live in one of those tiny mansions you call tiny homes. And I plan on it.
Have not seen the video yet but sounds like at least they are not bashing the movement, from what I am gathering from the comments….:)
Prior to living in a tiny home, experiment with minimalism in your present home and change old habits.
Sketch a variety of functional floor plans. Situate windows to enjoy a view as well as longer-lasting daylight.
Try a sleeping bag, roll-up floor mat, hammock, floor cushions, a handheld computer, clipboard, a one-week wardrobe and one set of linens.
Try using one kitchen sink and space equivalent to an under-counter fridge. Try storing stackable kitchenware and dry goods in one cupboard, such as beneath the kitchen sink.
Envision using a small bathroom sink without a vanity. Store towels and cosmetic bags on hooks over the back of a toilet.
Anything more requires greater square footage, expense and repair.
A loft, futon, daybed, sofa bed, table, chairs, desk, closets, cupboards, shelving, etc. may not be needed.
