MAJOR NETWORK TV SHOW SEEKS PEOPLE WHO ARE IN THE BEGINNING STAGES OF PLANNING AND BUILDING A TINY HOUSE 

A major network and award-winning production company are seeking individuals and families nationwide that are planning on building and moving into a tiny house between March – June 2014.  A team of expert builders and designers led by a former Disney Imagineer who has designed projects for multiple A-list celebrities will create one-of-a-kind and fully functional layouts filled with custom features intended on maximizing tiny spaces and suit the unique needs of the client while also significantly increasing the value of the properties.

We are seeking people who are planning tiny house builds of all kinds (cabins, cottages, floating homes, container conversion homes, urban micro apartments, etc.) and will be downsizing and transitioning into the tiny house lifestyle for the first time. We are especially interested in anyone who has made progress in any of these departments: BLUEPRINTS, FOUNDATIONS, ZONING AND/OR BUILDING PERMITS, COMPLETED WELL/SEPTIC SYSTEMS OR ELECTRICAL WIRING.  *** Please note, all applicants should have an allotted, available budget and should be planning their build/move-in within the next five months (February – July 2014).

Interested individuals, couples and families should be located in the US and should have specific ideas and plans in place as it relates to their purchase and/or build. For inquiries or to apply, email the following information to tinyhousetvshow@gmail.com: name, location, renovation budget, information on who lives with you, why you want to live in a tiny home, and what you would like your space to look like. Additionally, please include photos of who lives in your home as well as contact information.

      Hi Sarah. Thanks for your message. We don’t offer a completed hOMe for sale; however, we will be selling the construction drawings very soon. Stay tuned to our website or sign up for our newsletter to hear about the release.

    My husband and I would like to know where we could purchase one of these. It sounds great

      Hi Dawn. We offer the plans for sale as well as a 6.25 hour “how to build tiny” DVD. We don’t build and sell the hOMes; however, you would be able to find a local builder who could build from the plans.

    Hi, my name is Carol Lynn. My hisband and I also live in Poland and are very interested in the tiny house movement. I love you design and am curious as to whether anyone from Europe has bought your plans. If not, does anyone know if their is any Tiny house Movement in Europe? I keep looking for plans and wind up seeing cube designs from Germany that aren’t suitable for more than one person.

      Hi Carol Lynn. We have sold many sets of plans to Europe. We offer them in metric as well as imperial.

      Hi there, this is a late reply but maybe it’ll help some.
      Here’s something I found a few days ago, it’s a world map showing some of the people who are interested/own a tiny house and in the overall movement, there’s a fair amount of people in Europe too 🙂 Here’s a link: http://www.tinyhousemap.com/#

      I was actually looking at anything Tiny House related in Europe as well and although I didn’t find anything solid, I did find a village in Ireland called Cloughjordan that like the Tiny House Movement, is a lot more environmentally friendly, and by that I mean all houses have rain harvesting system, are built of environmentally friendly materials etc. Here’s a link to their website: http://www.thevillage.ie/

    I am trying to calculate the labour cost involved in building your tiny house and therefore need to know how many work hours it take to build this design? Thanks.

    • Andrew
      Andrew July 20, 2014 at 9:29 am #

      Hi Dee. It took me four months to build hOMe, by myself and while filming the entire process. I have been a professional builder for 20 years, so the time it took me will be less than someone without building experience. Hope that helps.

    My fiancé and I are getting married in Sept and are currently in the process of building a tiny house! We plan on picking up our trailer (specially made for tiny homes) when we fly back from our honeymoon and land in Florida! Then we’ll drive it back to Missouri and begin building that week! We are beyond excited to start this journey and cannot wait to share our story! 🙂

      Yay Katie and Landon! That’s an exciting bunch of things happening in your life. Have fun!

    I am on the treashole of starting my 8 ft. wide by 10 feet long Tiny house and there are sooo many things I have yet to know, but I have my Trailer and my land to put it on and am hoping to built it for $10,000.00 or less, I welcome any information. I currently live with my cleint with Special needs as a coordinator and live-in support. I have been living in a “Room” for the past 7 years and that is the main reason I decided to ?Built my own home

    Thank you

      Hi Jennie. Good for you! I would recommend that you get our DVD series. Although it is filmed on hOMe, the techniques shown will give you a great handle on construction in general. Hope that helps.

    Does any one have a suggestion to interior walls. My concern is drywall and the problem of cracking while moving.
    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Thanks…

    Dear Andrew,
    Do you know if they are still taking applicant’s for The Tiny House tv show.
    Ive been gathering information, & a few materials for quiet some time now. And due to an accident my children & I could really use the help, energetically, & physically. We lost everything due to toxic mold. Soo the positive side. Were paired down & ready.
    Thank you soo very kindly

      Hi Trina. Sorry to hear about the challenges you have faced in recent times. I am not sure if the show is still taking new prospects. I certainly hope so and that they choose you to work with. Wishing you the best and speedy journey to wherever it is you want to be. 🙂

    Hey Andrew! I’ve been dreaming of building a tiny home just like yours for a long time now. The movement is getting so big I am afraid that cities are going to pick up on it and start making new laws about it right before I build mine.lol I too am from Southern Oregon, lived in Medford almost my entire life, my question to you is about water. What do you recomend I do for water if a well is not an option? I read up on flexi tanks but have no idea on the cost of having someone re-fill it when needed.

    Thanks for your time!
    Jordan

      Andrew November 5, 2014 at 1:00 pm #

      Hi Jordan. That’s a good question. If you don’t have access to “city water” or a well then you will need to either a) collect rain water and store it for later use (this is my personal favorite) or b) contract with a potable water supplier to deliver water to your storage tank. A third option would be filtering a natural spring if available. I can’t think of any other way to get water in large volume to your property. Good luck!

    Hello

    Is the dvd enough training to build a tiny house or do i need more formal construction training. I have zero carpentry abilities. Are there local locations ti train?

    • Andrew
      Andrew June 7, 2015 at 10:01 am #

      The DVD series is very detailed and may well be enough for you to build your own tiny house. That said, if you don’t feel confident after watching the DVDs (maybe a couple times or more even) then getting some hands on experience is not hard to do.
