Living Big In A Tiny House

Vor 6 Tage

Jay Shafer is a man who many know as the Godfather of the modern tiny house movement. It was 20 years ago now that he build his original tiny house on wheels and that moment has since inspired thousands of people all over the world (me included) to construct their own tiny homes.

His new tiny house design is aimed at taking things back to the absolute basics and simplicity in all aspects. That means a home which is simple and pleasant to live in, simple to build and also simple to afford. This new tiny house design costs a remarkably low sum of US $5000!

WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW. We made it to 1 million subscribers! I honestly can't believe it. Thank-you all so much for your support to this channel and our journey. It's been such a ride over these past years with lots of ups and downs. Building a tiny house, and starting this channel was absolutely one of the best things I've ever done with my life. Really though, it's you, the viewers who make all this possible, so thank-you for being a part of our journey and helping us to do what we love. My promise to you is that we will continue to seek out incredible small homes to show you, and always work hard to improve the quality of our videos for you. Some of you have been with us right from the beginning of this journey and that's an amazing thing. It's great to recognise so many familiar names and comments in the discussion of the videos each week. There's such a strong sense of positive community here and I love that. It seems quite fitting that our first video at 1 million subs is of Jay Shafer. Jay was my original inspiration for building a tiny house on wheels, so to get to visit and film a tour of his new design was really special for me. I hope you enjoy this tour, and again, thank-you all for your support of this channel!

Maybe this house is practical in Minecraft, but how does this help homeless people. You think they have 5k to put down for materials? What a waste of time.

When you realize that ancient humans didn't strive to live in small boxes, you then find yourself being part of another fad of the late 2010s. Tiny homes are going to be on a future VH1 "I love the 2010s!"

Was it Jay that was planning a tiny house village in that area of CA? Did it ever happen?

Jay Shafer’s philosophy has always been sharing spaces like bathrooms and kitchens. He leans toward an idea of a place to sleep and then using public spaces - gyms, coffee shops, libraries, etc., to do your “living”. Not for everyone but certainly something to think about when going minimal. Too many of the “tiny homes” of recent years lean towards cramming as much as you can in a small footprint.

Congratulations on 1 million!! I've been watching your subscriber count climb for the past several months in anticipation. I love your channel and hope to one day build a tiny home, maybe not on wheels though, using inspiration from your episodes. Good luck on your second million.

It was nice to see Bryce's interest and understanding come through in this video. I think (because he is a nice guy) he often doesn't go very deep into the concept or tiny house values with others, instead just complementing them on their design elements. Here you can really see some of the depth of his knowledge with regards to tiny houses. It'd be good to see this more.

Wow! I'm still thinking about when he said no one should be living on the street...or going hungry, but it's far more affordable to PROVIDE these things for people, rather than NOT! Can the GOVERNMENTS NOT AFFORD HOUSING OF THESE SIZES??!!! WTF!!!! THE GOVERNMENTS DO NOT WANT PEOPLE TO OWN A HOME, OR TO LIVE IN ONE!!!

You are the only one who talked about price. All the other tiny homes cost almost as much as a normal house per capita of square feet. Kind of defeats the purpose. You are awesome! I've seen one tiny home for $85,000 which is better than the 150K minimum except when you factor in permits and land and then you end up at 135K but a tiny place. Thanks for not defeating the purpose.

Very expensive sleeping bag. Not a fan of open defecation, with or without a hand spade. Take the skills and create a rolling sidewalk portapoddy for San Francisco homeless.

Shower? Basin bath. Toilet? Plastic-lined bucket & bottle for #1. I would get a Wave#3 catalytic heater and a Coleman stove with a small propane tank.

The whole time watching this video I pictured it belonging in a community housing project, maybe with a separate shared kitchen and bathroom for the community. Would be really awesome to see something like that implemented to help homeless people by providing an affordable solution, but also give people their own space to call their own. Really cool!

Tiny houses aren’t for me. I appreciate the people who like them. I admire the price point of this particular house too. The one thing though. 6 x 6 isn’t cavernous. It can’t be. It has no accommodation for a kitchen, or a bathroom, it’s a tent made of wood on wheels. It’s not a house. Because this structure can’t provide these basic and required elements, it can not be considered a house. You can call it a home though. It does serve the admirable purpose of providing shelter.

Congratulations with your 1 million mark. You've earned it! It makes me wonder if more people are starting to reconsider their actual needs and bringing down their footprints. Jay Schafer continues to be a great inspiration, sharing definitely brings down personal footprints, whether it's kitchen, bathrooms or just washer/dryer or even lawn/garden equipment or cars. It's good to be reminded that community sharing of some of those items can also be part of the design.

This thing doesn't look very insulated or weather proofed thanks to the wood siding and the gaps.

I know Jay started his tiny home life with a mini pickup truck and had the thought that one could put a bathroom and kitchen in the back of a vehicle and in a warm climate have an outhouse toilet and a summer kitchen that would work year round and also be available while traveling. The toilet could be easily emptied and cleaned at RV service areas.

After fulfilling all my financial obligations, I wish I could get a tiny house and live mortgage-free for life. Once savings are established, this would be a very affordable way of life...sort of. There are pros and cons to a house this small, but I think the biggest challenge would be finding the space for it, close enough to cities where most jobs are.

I just read way too many of the comments about this. Most people act like he’s trying to make THEM live in it. He’s not! But it works for him. And for the thousands of “no this, no that=NOT A HOUSE” comments... HES NOT TRYING TO SELL IT TO YOU! He likes it. He doesn’t want your house. You’re missing the point completely. (And I just wasted time writing to someone who’ll never get it. Time to turn off my phone... but! to the person telling me how wrong I am. I’ll NEVER read what you’re writing. Ha! I win!)

What a great interview. Jay is an inspiration and I agree with his sentiments about homelessness 100% No one should be homeless or hungry in this country. Something needs to be done to make living simply like this accessible. Beautiful home. I think I would've done differently myself 15years ago had I known about these types of lifestyles more and nomadic as well. Getting back to simplicity and not being owned by stuff and working too much, and struggling too much. Thanks for the interview and God bless.

I knew that Jay Shafer was the instigator of the Tiny House movement, but was totally ignorant of his journey. Thank you Bryce for sensitively exposing such an amazing person, he's been through tough times & turned it into a positive for others to learn from. I wish I could jump through the screen & give him a huge manhug.
