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!

Congratulations! I've only just joined but I'm hooked! I'm moving back to France from the UK and now building a tiny house is adding to the possibilities and excitement! Thank you for the inspiration. When I've done it I'll invite you to come and film it - in French - so the movement can grow there ❤️🙏🏼👏🏻

I have a tiny closet in a 10X10 room, now, like the one in the photo, and if you only have a few shirts and 1 coat it works. This micro living only works if you have outside storage.

I think people in need, meaning homeless people, would succeed much more even if they were only a couple of feet apart with the shared facilities etc it’s got to be cheaper than building a apartment or studio facility and healthier to live there and they’d have pride. In fact 2 people could live there since there the upper attic type area.

This is a middle finger up to the big housing development companies. The whole movement provides an alternative, and if it got more research and development would solve so much housing insecurity, but again we westerners value property too much, owning stuff is overriding our needs.

What a beautiful little home, with all the storage in it especially -- but as a Californian it hurts to see it parked in a dangerous situation from a wildfire vulnerability perspective. The video was coincidentally published here on the day the Camp Fire started in Butte County, ultimately wiping out 14,000 homes. Perhaps this type of tiny home in Sonoma County could be a type of "Katrina cottage" for people affected by the Paradise-Magalia-Concow fire.

it depends on the situation how we see a house or room, this tiny room or tent for him is like a house and it is enough for him, as he said, he had a hard life in the past and even this tiny room or tent that somebody told on this comments. for him like a home, home means when you are H̲A̲P̲P̲Y̲ ̲O̲F̲ ̲M̲E̲A̲S̲U̲R̲E̲ ! and he is satisfied and I completely agree with him and congratulation for his effort 🏠👌😊🎯💙💜💚💛❤

My son has been watching for a very long time and got me hooked on your videos.... he wants to build a tiny house too.... we have scratched out many floor plans for it, it's always changing. He is 17 and can't wait to get started!
I know I could never go tiny, but I do want to downsize. Maybe someday go tiny . . . ?
Thank you for all you do! LOVE your videos!! Keep 'em coming!
Travel safe!

I was with this guy, shaking my head, thinking hell yeah. Then we got to the homeless part, and I liked him even more--"A self made man who got out of a huge hole. Wow!" Then 12:00 made my eye-brows arch a little. The legal system took all his money away and made him homeless? WTF? He clearly got into trouble--probably unpaid alimony--and he didn't want to take responsibility for his actions. So why not blame the faceless "legal system"? Sounds very self-serving...

I am a registered architect since 1969. I have worked for the world's famous architects S.O.M., Pei, Gwathmey etc. Here is my contribution to the poor people including myself how to retire. Go to search a vacant lot (40'x80' +/-) in the urban area, build a two bedroom, two baths, and two kitchens house with two 40 foot containers for zoning purpose. Then converting into (2) 1br or (4) 0br apartments with sleeping attic sleeping eight people optional, for rental income. with approx. $100,000 investment, you can have an apartment to live in, and renting out the rest for your retirement income. I have plans ready to build. George Wu, ARCHITECT, A.I.A., NCARB 2018-12-6

It is the human dignity that I think people should have a roof over the head and the indoor bathroom to wash up so the homeless person could look for a job with a legal home address. Because most employers do not want to hire homeless people. George Wu, ARCHITECT, A.I.A, NCARB 2018-12-6 Most people in the world today are only a paycheck away to be homeless.

In my opinion, the person who designs a house for himself to live in, the first question is: where does the money come from in order to live? sewage problem, water supply, etc. George Wu, ARCHITECT, A.I.A., NCARB 2018-12-5
georgewu5 - 6 дней назад
Everyone should have income or savings to live. I don't know where this guy getting his $5,000 from to build a tiny house with no toilet, but he still had the money to build the shed. Well, for the rest of us, we have to be very careful how to spend our last dollar, not to have a house that has no toilet and expensive to travel to find a job.

if you don't want to answer the question about you're homelessness, why not just say that's personal instead of "when the interesting legal system we have here in the United States blah blah blah" you didn't actually say anything about it anyway.

George Wu's stunning container housing: (2) 40 or 20 foot containers @$2,000 +/- each to build (2) 1or 0 bedroom apartments, each has a full bath and a full kitchen, each sleeps ten (10) people max. one for the owner, the other is to be rented for retirement income. How about that? George Wu, ARCHITECT, A.I.A., NCARB 2018-12-5

I am a practical architect. I don't waste time to start a trend that did not answer the need of the world, such as a tiny house that has no toilet. I am in the middle designing (16) 1 bedroom container apartments with (20) $2,000 containers stacking. With approx. half a million dollars investment , the investor can get back approx. a quarter of million dollars income a years from rent. it is 40'x40'x40' H. could be located in urban area for the tenants to find a job.

Realistically speaking, Tiny home is not the answer to the housing problem to me. Because tiny homes do not have toilet and shower to wash up to look for a job with a home address. Without these basic problems solved then homelessness is NOT one step closer to be solved. Well, my idea of using the cheap container to build high rise container housing has solved many of these problems, Tiny homes is a novelty! not a housing solution to solve the immense social problem. George Wu, ARCHITECT, A.I.A, NCARB 2018-12-3

I like the RV much better than this tiny home idea. But then again, every situation is different. tiny house is certainly a roof over the head.....It is better than sleeping outdoor all year around. The hell with the toilet if you don't even have a roof! George Wu, ARCHITECT, A.I.A, NCARB 2018-12-3

georgewu5 - 7 дней назад
I have a solution to solve part of the big social problem.I used the cheap $2,000 shipping container to built high rise container housing for the poor in the urban area. So the homeless people can wash up to apply for a job with a legal home address. After making the daily wage, the homeless person can buy food to eat and sleep in the tiny tiny apartment indoor, so that he or she can get up the next morning ready to go to work .

We cannot go back to live the colonial times with no service jobs, running water and water toilets. Then we have to deal the housing problem at its face value. Like they said they don't make buildable land any more. Therefore, we have to build vertically , economically. That is the question. My own solution to this is to build container housing vertically, say 20 or 40 stories tall housing. Facebook / George Wu

First you gotta get some land or area to do this. Looks ideal but are we not being told of the down sides?
You have to have drainage, a toilet/shower. I guess he has solar power from roof panels but couldn’t see any.
In spite of criticisms we have to remember that this guy was sleeping rough under a tarp so this little space represents elements of luxury for him. Warm, dry, secure, nobody pissing on him in a doorway at night, private.
It’s good.👍🏻

I really liked this home. Someone said 'home is where the heart is' and his heart is definitely in that home. At least he's sharing a kitchen and a toilet, No fire pit and an no outhouse. Truly minimalist and a community is built.
