    Seth has a wonderful video presence, and you can tell he really enjoys what he does. I get the sense he cares about his clients needs and is passionate about the tiny house movement.
    From some other videos he’s done, it’s apparent he is a person of integrity and goes the extra mile to ensure craftsmanship is top notch.

    My own design for tiny house is about 180° different from this one. I don’t like really closed in spaces and went with a very open floor plan, but also can appreciate that he’s following his clients wishes and expectations .

    I wish this company success!

    That bathroom is just too cramped, even for a tiny house.

    And how tall IS that guy? His head’s practically bumping against the ceiling!

      they said 6′ 5″ So to be fair he’s making it look much small than it is.

      In the video, it said the guy was 6 feet 5 inches.

    Oh, the arrival of a tiny house is so lovely. It is always my favourite part of tiny house stories.
    It is like a new family member being welcomed into the world…with Seth as the midwife LOL.
    Or am I the only one who is crazy enough to feel like that? 😉

    Apart from that the house seen very well built and has many great details. Personally I would want a more open space, but the builder fit in everything the buyers wanted in a way where it is usable and practical.

    I cannot understand why people order (and pay) for what to me seems like a rabbit hole. And frankly I do not believe that the present “first” generation of tiny house buyers will be happy in them and live long and retire in them. No human being I’ve ever met wanted to live in conditions rabbits and rats live in (ducking your head and all). I agree with the others that the cramped feeling (claustrophobic) is exacerbated here because this house is everything but open. If you gifted me this house I would try to sell it instantaneously. Builders beed to learn to build pushup roofs, or else most of them will be out of business before the “second” generation of buyers open their wallets.

      First off, I think this is a very nicely constructed and very, charming and beautiful home. I agree that tiny house living is a fad for some. I don’t not see families staying in these homes long term. After, the honeymoon period is over, I can see people moving into larger tiny homes until they are fully adjusted with the right size for them. A teenage boy is not going to like this setup when his friends have the ultimate chill spot bedroom or rec room at their house. Yes, living tiny is a fantastic concept that we all can benefit from, I just think people are trying to fit in homes they will quickly out grow. This home for this family is very temporary.

      When this couple ages, I guarantee that this home will be very uncomfortable to maneuver. As a disabled woman with a husband suffering from arthritis, I can tell you all, with certainty that this home will eventually be too cramped. I hope and pray they won’t suffer any injuries or illnesses but, if so, how will they get in bed and dress or get in and out of that bathroom with a broken leg? I developed a painful illness despite my good health in my early twenties and my first child was born premature needing oxygen.

      I’ve asked how people are doing with very tiny homes after the novelty of their new home fads. Do these people buy bigger homes with ever changing families, do they build add-ons? These homes are beautiful but, are they here to stay?

        Good points. Things I am sure everyone thinking of going tiny considers and has to weigh for their needs.

        I think these homes are here to stay, but just like young couples buy starter homes they know they will move away from as their families grow, these homes give a couple the ability to save a lot of money toward their next place as the kids grow. Then the home can go to another young couple or an older couple that needs or wants less or for whom their financial situation is tenuous.
        I think the biggest threat to the longevity of tiny house living is municipal laws to ban homes not of a certain minimal size or not on foundations.

        My husband and I lived in a THOF, very similar to this one, for over 2 years and sold it to pay for grad school. The 3-year old’s room (like the one in this video) became our bedroom and the loft was used for storage/guests.
        We have finished grad school and are looking for a piece of property to put a THOF on. In our new THOF the living room will also be raised up to leave space for batteries for our solar panels.

      One of the many reasons I love tiny homes is they are built to your individual requirements.
      To you this seems like a rabbit hole but I LOVE this style.
      When living in a TH a hallway gives you somewhere to go versus always being in 1 room. But I would have no dishwasher, a smaller frig, & a smaller washing machine. My husband and I lived in one similar to this one and look forward to buying another one.

    I am always amazed at how one can take a set exterior shape (in this case a shed roofed rectangle), and figure out so many different interior layouts. This one is really good one in my estimation. Putting a living area raised on one end the kitchen in the middle so all activity doesn’t have to go through the living room, then the bedrooms on the other end with the bathroom right by it… very practical! I would love living in this home. Being an older couple without rug rats, I could see the child’s bedroom becoming an office or study and convertible to a guest room. One of us could work in the study or sleep in the loft while the other watches the tube, reads, or listens to music in the living room – not disturbing each other.

    Nice house! Still trying to figure out what happened to the guy’s hair, however. Too fast under the underpasses?

      Lol – I loved his hair, kinda reminds me of the professor in Back to the Future:)

      Hey! Don’t diss Seth’s hair! It’s part of his charm. 🙂

      I agree, Seth’s hair is part of his charm. 🙂

    Could you please give me some information on the wall heaters in this Tiny House.
    Thanks. Renee’

    Love it Seth! I agree with Swabbie Robbie above that there seem to be never ending ways to deal with a rectangle. Of course you had an extra foot or so in width to work with, which no doubt helped. I loved the little boy’s room. The bathroom is pretty great with a tub and a fair amount of space. Nicely done in the kitchen and living space too. i like the idea of the split storage space under the living area. Uh, yeah.

    I really like the layout of this Tiny House. As a senior of 78, I like the living room area and fully applianced kitchen, the hallway with a bedroom near the bathroom. I would want just a standup shower though. The loft is for G.Kids, lol! Nice one for me. 🙂
