    when do you reckon that you will update on your tiny home?

  • Katriina Kivinen

    I have been watching your videos and they make it really easy to start dreaming of building new homes! I actually also made a tiny home and I have a lot of projects here in Finland too! We are making tiny houses a movement here, but with the challenges of a really intense winter season. I would be super interested in winter houses, if you find some. Love your channel!

    Thanks Bryce, I've been watching your show for a few years or so mate and I want you to know it makes me feel good every time! Its amazing for you to have such a big effect on some of your viewers lives. Watching a presenter like yourself for so long kinda makes you feel like a friend, if you know what I mean. You have really nailed what you are doing, slick production terrific format, and well presented. Much respect for all the hard work bro. Love the videos from NZ.

  • Jayasree Sreenivasan

    Truly a remarkable series. I started considering how much I use and how many things I require after watching this channel. I don't have a tiny house (I'm a student in another country), but definitely would want to build one of my own in my hometown. What I like about your videos is that each one of your tiny houses has a personality, resembling the personality of the people living in that space. It's not about cramming everything into a tiny space, but giving yourself the opportunity to really think and create. I can't wait for more videos from you, or to click the like button ;). Great job guys!!

    Hi Bryce, I was wondering if you can put me in contact with a tiny house owner in Chch or Blenheim? or anywhere close to Kaikoura. After the earthquake the house prices are over the roof (rent or buy) and my husband and I are seriously considering to build a tiny house but need some idas on where to start! Thanks!

    Hey dude love the videos, and these are great for designs and finding builder! Could you do a video that talks and covers people go about zoning laws or finding a place where they are of the grid? I live in Maryland and I'm in planning to build my own tiny home.

  • Tiny Budget Builder

    Hi Bryce, just wanted to say I am a huge fan of your channel! In fact it was one of your early videos with Brett Sutherland (I believe was his name), the bone carver from New Zealand, that inspired me to build my own tiny house on wheels. And now it is finally complete. I did a little walk through which is posted on my channel if you would like to check it out. I see that you are in the States for a while. I hope you are enjoying yourself. If you make your way to Richland, WA please let me know. I would LOVE to have a tour of my house on your channel. And my tiny house has a couple unique features that I think your viewership would really appreciate. Thanks again for all you do, and safe travels! Please keep the great videos coming!

    First off, I VERY rarely comment or add my 2 cents in on things (I'm a very private individual). However I just found your channel by chance actually. I for the most part live "off the grid" because I like keeping my life simple. I never knew tiny/simple homes was a thing until not long ago. I've been living simple for some time now, and I would invite you to my tiny home but it's not actually unique. It just an only 17.5 foot (from the bumper to the ball hitch) 1978 trailer, and it's about 80% original. I wanted to say that I love your channel, it shows that people DON'T need much to live a happy life. I've always felt since I was young that working less and spending time with family was far more important. Thanks so much for showing visually that we as humans don't need a large home to be happy. Cheer's from one Brit to a half Brit :)

    I wish they'd talk about prefab/off grid solutions. Water and sewage being the only "on site" resources. Is it possible to pay say $50K and live off grid with some creature comforts (e.g. showers, Internet, etc.) surrounded by an orchard and gardens? And maybe some beautiful locations and landscaping???

    Hi!I got a question about small homes: So when it comes to bad weather (more specifically high winds), how durable are homes like these? I just watched the tour of the Japanese small home and it only weighed about 600kg, so how well does that weight stand against say 70mph winds? I really enjoy this channel btw!!

  • hans mitt
    hans mitt 2 years ago

    Remember ,if you are planning a tiny house in NZ , there are few things to keep in mind so as to avoid legal issues with local and other authorities . So unless you build a house under 10m2 floor area and it has no plumbing drainage and power services that connect to the outside you almost always need a building consent .The main exploitable exception to this is building on a certified trailer so it is always possible to legally transport it on public roads.Many of those interested will know this fact but I thought it was worth a mention. Great tiny house living to everyone!

    Hey really do enjoy the channel. Any chance you would consider doing a follow on your Lotus Belle Tent experience? I loved the idea so much I'm considering doing the same thing here in Oregon, but I'd like to hear if there were unexpected downsides, concerns, issues etc, or whether it was all positives. I live in a rather rainy environment, so I'm a bit concerned about molds. Also, is it possible to resell the tent once your done? Thanks so much!

  • Gaz NZ

    I just discovered your website and channel. The concepts are great, and it's definitely an ideal option to build small. I had a question though, and I haven't yet found the answer: what are the legal exemptions to allow shipping containers and such that aren't built onto a trailer to be exempt from council consent? And the same for building a trailer? Just wanna get the facts straight :) Thanks!

    Julia Kilmer 3 years ago

    Hey Bryce! I just watched your video on the Hobbit Cave, Underhill. My question is how did he complete the ceiling? Rocks, sand, concrete and then dug out the sand. Not quite sure how it was done, perhaps you could tell me more! Peace, Julia

    • Living Big In A Tiny House
      Living Big In A Tiny House 3 years ago

      Hey Julia - it's actually really similar to how they make a pizza oven. They dug out a hole, filled it with sand, placed the river stones on top to form the pattern they wanted, then poured concrete over the whole thing, careful to factor in proper drainage of the water. Once that was done, they put more soil on top and planted over the roof. It's a really unique way of doing it. It's the first time I've seen a home built like that.

    Hey Bryce, I've been watching your videos and I was just wondering. Where do people normally park these things? I want to create my own tiny house but I don't want to rely on friend's gardens/driveways. Do you know much about freedom camping regulations in auckland?

    • Living Big In A Tiny House
      Living Big In A Tiny House 3 years ago

      Hey Amy. Where to park a tiny house is a very common question. The majority of people I know come up with either rent agreements from people with land, or they volunteer on properties in exchange for the ability to park there.

    I just wanted to say you folks are doing a great job! okay, thats not what i really wanted to say. I think your front door is hideous! Okay its not "hideous", but its so cold and plain and sterile. it's uninviting and uninspiring. It looks like a lab door or submarine door. No window or interesting hinges. I absolutely hate that damn door! ...excuse me, had to get it off my

    • Living Big In A Tiny House
      Living Big In A Tiny House 3 years ago

      Haha. Of course everyone has different opinions and taste, and that's what makes the world an interesting place to be. I actually really love the door! It would have been nice to go for something wooden and carved though - I love that look too, but it's also very heavy. This door is thermally broken, lightweight and adds a really great modern architectural profile to the home. Especially once the outside of the house is complete, with the awnings and the green walls, it's going to look killer I think. :)

  • James Evans
    James Evans 3 years ago

    How is it possible that this is the best NZ made TV in the last year with what looks like only two people making it? It just does not seem possible but it looks to be true. I am absolutely gob smacked by how good these videos are. I am not even an eco or tiny house type person but this is just such good tv. It is like grand design but tiny. Big call, but I am going to say Bryce is almost as good as Kevin (and a mile better than the guy who did the Australian version).

    • Living Big In A Tiny House
      Living Big In A Tiny House 3 years ago

      Wow! Thanks James! That's so awesome of you to say. We are doing our best to produce high quality videos and it makes all the difference to know that it's appreciated. I'm doing my best and working my way up to Kevin McCloud's level. That guy does some amazing work!

My husband and I want to eventually build our own tiny home and I love all the advice you guys put out there. I am thankful you two have the patients to do it so calculated and researched, I don't have that kind of self control ;-) So while we are in an area for the next few years for work where we aren't able to have space to live this lifestyle (Los Angeles, California - Concrete Jungle) I will use that time to do my research. Keep up the good work and I cannot wait to see the finished project!

    I've been enjoying your channel the past couple days. Some really interesting stuff. Something I have not seen much of, is heating and cooling. How does one keep these tiny houses from getting really hot inside in the summer, or keep it from getting really cold in the winter? Particularly for the off-grid folks. A central air unit is quite large, as is a furnace; and you need regular access to gas or lots of electricity use to power them.

    • Valas Darkholme
      Valas Darkholme 4 years ago

      +Living Big In A Tiny House I look forward to seeing what you've come up with, when those videos are ready, because as you mention and as I suspected, the Tiny House concept looks like one which could turn into an unlivable (at least for me) oven of a building. When I look for a place these days, how I'm going to keep the house in a comfortable temperature range is my first concern aside from budget, and since that seems to be a lower range than for most people I know, it can be frustrating even when I'm look at conventional housing options. I'm particularly interested in any technicals if you are aware of exactly how much cooling you're able to manage. I don't expect I could get by on passive cooling alone on a hot summer day; but the less power I use to cool the place, the better. I'm not yet working on a tiny house project of my own, but its definitely something I want to do in the future.

    • Living Big In A Tiny House
      Living Big In A Tiny House 4 years ago

      Hey Ray. Awesome question. In our design, this is something that has been given a lot of thought, and we have incorporated many elements of passive solar design into the house, that will both keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It's actually quite a big (and very important) topic, especially in Tiny House design where if it's not well designed can easily turn into a hot-house in the summer. We will be going into detail about this in up-coming videos. :)

  • Valas Darkholme
    Valas Darkholme 4 years ago

    @Diane Thompson: Some of them have conventional laundry, I'm sure, but I have seen some videos regarding other options. There's a bicycle powered spin washer that looked pretty easy to operate (though not as easy as put it in and walk away) How We Do Laundry Off Grid With a Bike Powered Washing Machine, and there's a solar clothes dryer that someone came up with that also takes no power here Solar Clothes Dryer - NOT a clothes line.

    I love what you're doing here. Not only showing finished tiny houses that others have built, but following your own build step by step in high detail. I've been following the movement in the US (from Australia) for a couple years. I've been renting a house for $400p/w for the same amount of time, not to mention the high costs associated with heating, cooling and lighting the property. It makes me so depressed when i think of all the money I've lost since leaving home. I desperately want to get my family back on track with a tiny house. The idea is build a tiny house to live in while I build a larger house over time. When the larger house is complete the smaller one can be rented out until my son is old enough to live in it. That way he can avoid the rental trap that my wife and I fell into at such a young age, then repeat the live tiny while saving to build slightly larger method. I can't wait to see the rest of your build, please keep updating us with both the highs and the hopefully few lows. I wish you luck my friend!

      One suggestion, maybe have a running total of any costs involved at the end of each build update. Like how much was the trailer build? How much was the galvanizing process? Transport costs...etc.

    I'm watching with baited breath to see how the living goes and the adjustments involved. It's one of the things, along with admitting errors made along the way, that is often glossed over. Just like a new pair of shoes you break them in but they also force your feet to adjust to them, so too I'd imagine goes the tiny house. I've the dream of doing this as well. I've even started designs on paper and plan to make scale models soon. I'm a big fan of things like Karakuri Tansu ( Karakuri Tansu - The magic of Japanese traditional crafts ) and Roentgens transforming furniture ( Demonstration of the Roentgens' Dressing Table (Poudreuse) ), and hope to incorporate much more simplified versions of some of those ideas. I'd love to do it on a bit of land where I could also do some permaculture food forest growing. I think the hardest parts for me to work out now are land, Getting the materials and trailer to the land once I have it, and some of the zoning with regards to waste and water management. I'll be curious to see how you manage all the steps on your journey. Design layouts and lifestyle adaptations especially.

      +Pascale Zweifellow Awesome. I'm a big fan of modified shipping containers. It's a great way of upcycling, and the homes can be really spectacular.

    What's up on the project? Have you set on a plan? I am looking to build a Tiny house for my son to live in to save money. I like what you have shared so far, please don't stop. Thanks Rick from Montana, USA

      Thanks for the message. When are your new Videos to come? Looking forward to seeing them. I would like to see a selection of small home designs. I am thinking of a two part tiny home something that would slide on a trailer and then bolt it together. I also thought about showing you some drawings to get some feed back if you are interested. Thanks Rick

      Hey Rick! We certainly haven't stopped! We have been working on some of the final tech elements that dictate certain details of our design, but we will soon be ready to move into the building phase. Lots more videos to come soon! Thanks for following the project! :)
