    I’ve always been a huge fan of Scandinavian design and it was so cool to visit this longhouse inspired home. I think there are many people out there who love the idea of a tiny house, but just want a little more space and designs like this are perfect for that. We hope you enjoy the tour! With Love, Bryce & Rasa

      I love the openness and the space outside of the house. Beautiful garden space and space for the pooch. The home is very beautiful, thank you for sharing. Great job!

    i feel like 'tiny homes' has evolved beyond just the size of the home. it's the consciousness that you have about how much space you take up, consume, making it more sustainable. a mindset reset of what is means to live comfortably, healthily, and happily. so this is a tiny home for me. ♥

      @huck finn We moved a lot when I was a kid. Packing and unpacking is a huge chore, renting a U-haul isn't cheap, and if you have kids it isn't fair to them to change schools often. You lose friends, and have to try to fit in as the new kid.
      I wonder how well the kids will do in the future when their family lives nomadically. They get to see new places, but they aren't exposed to people their age to make friends with outside their family. Stability is important for children. As they get older they need their own space. They should see how other people live, in different socioeconomic levels, foods, lifestyles, etc. Seeing a diversity of people is important to learning also IMO.

      Perdue Alexandra Před 3 měsíci

      @Albertine 21My problem with your answer is in your misuse of the word Privilege. That’s what threw me off. . It means “A special right given to a given person”. As in “Education is a right not a Privilege”
      This couple had every right to build that home, no special privileges. They are both self employed and any obviously qualified for a mortgage if indeed they even have one. An elderly relative may have passed away and even left them money for crying out loud !
      I would say they are lucky for one thing and fortunate but really, it’s none of our business where the funds came from .

    This is the closest I've seen shown to what I would build. Just a bit bigger than tiny, but comfortable and all of it gets used. Love the style too.

    • vempriex
      vempriex Před 16 dny

      Same here especially with bit more space to their lot I would extend the square footage. Like the greenhouse and sliding door. Barnyard door is my favorite and open living room and kitchen. As a private person less windows or the windows would be up further. I would replace the plywood with boards.
      One of my fave!

    Our first home was a short, single-wide mobile home on 12 acres in Upstate NY. When we moved to a city an hour away to be closer to work, we kept it and it's become our weekend home. It has nearly the *exact* same layout. It needs renovations and this video was incredibly inspiring. Thanks for the tour!

    Another beautiful masterpiece😍
    Well this isn't really a tiny house however its a small, beautiful, cleverly designed, small house. The design and setup has focused on essential elements, no unnecessary rooms, furnitures, clutter. They have so much open space left for gardening and outdoor activities. And love the small cabins for office/ studio and garage/ workshop. The small garden greenhouses are also beautiful 😍
    Overall, a very beautiful, cozy and smart house they've got👏🏻

    • P.S.
      P.S. Před měsícem

      @Trishna _ yes! I'm a fan of permanent establishments with open area around, balcony, garden and a terrace as well. However, I think its great to have smaller houses. It reduces wastage of resources, hoarding, clutter, etc.

    • Trishna _
      Trishna _ Před měsícem

      yes, but most people can't really live in a tiny home long-term. and the majority of people don't really need it to be portable - you've got to have somewhere to put it, land is the most expensive and difficult thing, not the building. Well designed small houses (esp terraces, townhouses, apartments) are where the future of housing should be imo.

    • P.S.
      P.S. Před 3 měsíci +2

      @Melanie Cotterell yes, definitely not at all tiny nor portable but better than those gigantic villas in their neighborhood.. I agree if it was portable, then it would've been better but some prefer permanent dwelling and its a LOT better in that category!

    • Melanie Cotterell
      Melanie Cotterell Před 3 měsíci +1

      Certainly not tiny or portable. My father was one of six kids who grew up in a house smaller than 700 ft2. Then he built large houses for 50 years.

  • Artemaeus Pheos
    Artemaeus Pheos Před 3 měsíci +215

    LOVE the size of this house! I totally get what they were saying about living in 1/3rd of their previous home. I wish there were more homes built to this size these days. I know in the USA our median home size is like 221 square meters & unless you're a large family you don't really need that much space. LOVE that kitchen, funny that it's bigger than their previous ones. I'd say my favorite part is those gardens! How lovely!

      There are a lot of town houses built to this size.

    • Jeka Lambert
      Jeka Lambert Před 3 měsíci +2

      I agree. It's very difficult to find a home in the US that's between 600-800sf. As a single senior, I don't need a huge home and the associated physical effort necessary to maintain such a home. I'm no longer agile enough to climb ladders and crawl around on my knees as most tiny houses require, so this house is a great example of a well designed beautiful space that is more than perfect for a single person. Thanks for the video. I'd love to see more videos featuring small houses.

    • Melanie Cotterell
      Melanie Cotterell Před 3 měsíci

      You can't occupy more than one room. Eat, Sleep, Work. & Bathe/Shit. Multi-Purpose Room. You occupy 15 square feet of space at the most. If you have a relatively small 1500sq ft house for 2 people, you could downsize 98%. People waste too much energy heating and cooling unused areas. Probably 1/4 to 1/3 of energy used for heating and cooling is used for unoccupied space. If people had human powered generators, they would appreciate how much energy is needed for heating and cooling. They wouldn't stare into the refrigerator with the door open for very long.

      In some Counties in the States there are problems with trying to own tiny house unless you own 2 plus acres..Maybe this would be ok.
      This is really nice.
      Great Design!
      The Property is really nice as well.
      Thanks for sharing your home with us.

    • il-Ġanna

      I think in Europe in general land and building laws make it very difficult if not impossible to do this legally…in my country you are not allowed to build on “open” land even if it’s 30sqm or to park a tiny house on a land even if you own it. Buying land in building-approved areas is too expensive+you’re surrounded by regular apartment blocks and noise anyway :/ Only the rich can afford this type of living basically…sad really

    • TrueDesire존
      TrueDesire존 Před 3 měsíci +1

      @Ania Krawet one room for sleeping, laundry, living room, study/music/recreation room, one spare room for over night guests, workout space or something else and I can keep racking it up. I could barely fit my stuff on 55 m² and now living with my GF in an apartment around 73 m² set me back to square one.
      100 m² should be plenty given we can design it on our own rather to live in an apartment with 20-30 year old blueprints.

    This is it! A normal house is too much mortgage and a Tiny House is all about concessions. This house is what you get when you meet in the middle! No unnecessary spaces and no concessions on a quality living! This would be a perfect design for me! ❤️

  • Denise Marshall
    Denise Marshall Před 3 měsíci +32

    Good on you both for recording these places, there must be many who are over having to stay on the work conveyor to pay for more space than they need, and who use a lot of their own time to clean and titivate more space than they need. I'm with Heidi with the realization that a smaller, neater home means more time (and money) to live the life you choose.

    What a gorgeous home! Definitely the biggest tiny home I've seen and yet like all the others, it's the sense of peace and belonging that makes it work so well. It is Exactly what they need. No more, no less. The daily commute across the lawn to her office and to his garage is just perfect. The home itself is used for work. The couple are incredibly happy with life and let's face it too, their dog is Gorgeous 😍 I particularly liked the bedroom where the bedroom is unhindered by furniture and the bed itself backs onto the wardrobe. Such a brilliant design, I've never seen anything like it before. Their perfect home with the garden already producing so much food and work on the doorstep, absolute bliss 💖

    Though I love looking at tiny homes I don't think they're truly suitable for everyone but something along the lines of this gorgeous home and gardens seems like something much more practical to a wide range of people. I think a big part of it is that the home is thoroughly planned around the needs of those living in it. It definitely allows for a much more efficient use of space and materials.
    I love the simple Scandinavian inspired style in this home, it's so gentle and welcoming. And that bath on the deck is awesome! I'd be enjoying it summer and winter evenings both :)

      💯‼️ Agreed. This “Almost Tiny” speaks to me. NOT cutting out what you need and/or want, but this home is definitely NOT including unnecessary excessive space and energy. Favorite by far.
      I hope more “ Almost Tiny” is showcased more. I’m noticing the tiny homes that are built with a locked foundation (no intention to move the home) speaks directly to me. I would just build on land that I owned… because the level of options that you can have keeping it off wheels is endless. Great home, great job showcasing this lovely home.

    Love this size. This design is lovely. Do hope to see more examples at this size. We're retired and stairs are not an option so something like this, small but not needing a loft, would be so ideal for us. We have 4 grown children and 7 grandchildren, so having space to have them on holiday would be just fabulous. Hoping you'll showcase more of the "minor dwelling" homes!

What I see is that you've made it accommodating for aging, with the exception of the stairs on the exterior. What I love is that once your gardens are fully established it is going to be a Wow home. It looks well thought-out and lovingly accomplished. Congratulations!

    I am so glad I ran across this video by accident. thier whole set up is EXACTLY what I was trying to square up in my own head for my own space. Because of the cost of homes and land I was thinking, I may have to build a smaller house in order to get the size of land I want. I thought...maybe I can have one or two separate buildings for an office, but I want the land for growing food. and this set up is perfect for what I had in mind.

  • Catherine Emerson

    I think this is my favorite yet! While I love the tiny homes and your videos, I know that something in this size range is so much realistic for us. We also grow a lot of our own produce and need that extra storage space, and that massive shed/garage would be perfect for all the tools and gardening equipment. The outdoor tub looks amazing!

    this is truly a beautiful self-sufficient home! I love the stone bath! I love their garden to table lifestyle. I love that both of them have a separate space for work and then can come to their home to relax. wonderful!

    Hands down best house I've seen thus far. I know it's not your usual "Tiny" but it is classed as one and the way they designed it, the architecture of the whole house the outside with gardens, garage and studio is absolutely gorgeous and clean. It's their land so they don't have to up and move anywhere which is why I guess they could have the house like that. LOVE IT!! It's stunning. Congratulations to this couple for building and designing a beautiful place they call home. Bryce Thankyou for sharing it with the rest of us, another great video/interview from you, well done👌🏽😊

    Such a fabulous and needed idea of showing “Almost Tiny Home” I saw a an older lady who had a tiny home, but had no stairs or loft. She created her forever home.. smart and loved that, (perfect idea for my 75 yr. old mom… she would love this)!!
    But this is perfect!!!
    This home is an awesome realistic design that really fits and checks all the boxes, without excessive and unnecessary consumption of energy and space. Kudos for caring about future generations with such style and great taste!
    Please showcase more “Almost Tiny Home” love 💗 this!!!

    Such a beautiful tiny home Bryce and a lovely couple, the design is so wonderful and the wood is beautiful. I love how this couple have designed the spaces with storage and beautiful looking cabinets and everything else, that bedroom is so amazing. This is a beautiful tiny home and I thank you Bryce and Rasa, I hope your week ahead is great, sending love and hugs. bye for now. 😂🥰🤗💜

    We really need to reassess just how much space we need. 65sqm was the size of my daughter's 2 bedroom terrace house in Wimbledon! It didn't feel small at all and they had refigured it so that the back was all living/dining/kitchen with large skylights and doors out to their half garden. Our houses are grossly oversized and we don't live in them efficiently.

    I'd change out the hot water tank for an instant hot water system, gives you more storage space. This is a fantastic home, my husband would adore that shed! I love the office, I sew and use lots of space.

    I LOVE THIS HOME. I would put a second bath in that extra room, or at least a powder room, I mean if I was living there with someone who is always on the loo. I have seen those false wall bedrooms before and always thought it was a supremely clever thing to build. Hide the clutter. Love the size of the kitchen and living room. STELLAR home. i would also swap out all the plywood for white plaster walls, and I would move the laundry into that extra room too. That bathroom is big enough for a soaker tub in addition to the huge shower. GREAT DESIGN!

      @Susan Slattery i think all houses should have shower and toilet separated, so helpful.

      Seeds of Love Před 3 měsíci

      @Susan Slattery yep, my hubby has a small office and bath in the house, and it is so convenient! Dont know how families of any size can do with just 1. Maybe there is a bath in that little separate office for her? They did mention wanting to convert it to a guest house.

    • Susan Slattery
      Susan Slattery Před 3 měsíci

      @Seeds of Love I share one bathroom with spouse currently. We both fight over who gets the toilet, for crying out loud.

      Or just separate the shower and toilet, so 2 can use it w/o bothering each other.

    The outside land is beautiful. I love the garden area. I was raised in a 5000 sq. Ft home and it was just too big. The thing about tiny homes to me that makes it exciting is the coziness of homes and that if you have a partner or children you are forced to be with each other, not running off to hide in another wing of the home. My goal is to get an acre of land and build a retirement Small Home (not tiny) for my hubby and I and to have a garden like this one. It would be a tiny home but no lofts or stairs. It would be the size of small apt but just planned out space that just uses all the space from top to bottom. Can’t wait!

    Wow this is a true dream set up! It’s exactly what my husband and I want. A small home, separate studio for me to use as a music studio, a huge shed, room for veges, and a big flat fenced block for puppies! With such a big block I’d also set up a tiny house in the other corner to use as guest accommodation! It’s absolutely perfect! ❤

    I really love this home! The combination of black and warm wood inside and outside is very attractive and welcoming. It would be interesting to see it in about 5-10 years time when the trees have grown and the garden is more developped.

    Love seeing a single level home - all too often I see tiny homes that make good use of their vertical height to get more space usage but ignore the access side of things. Not many would be livable with even slight mobility concerns which are so common.

    • Tailgate Carpenter

      I grew up in a single level home. My first home purchase was single level and as I enter my sixties I live in my second home which is almost all ground level. Wouldn't have it any other way.

      Yes! I also think it's a short-sighted. Of course, many people age well and healthy, but many also develop arthritis and more severe health issues that might make it hard to climb up and down ladders or big stairs. And what if you break a leg or sprain an ankle? I'm just all for the single-level homes!
