Mini-binge potential is there for Tiny House Nation with the first seven shows of Season 5 on Netflix, but I’m only on episode one. So far, it’s a pretty typical reality reno show: high-energy hosts, quick cuts, upbeat music, and bite-sized at around 24 minutes an episode. The storyline is simple: two renovation pros embark on an endless road trip, rolling in to help out on tiny home builds that are underway. That’s what I’ve got so far. I’ll see how far I get. For a four-minute sample: “Tiny House Nation: Mark & Nicole”.
This little video tour gave me a bit of a feel for extreme tiny living. The house is around 100 sq. ft. (pretty sure that doesn’t include the cozy-looking attic sleeping-storage space). The tour guide is Jay Shafer, founder of the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. He’s been living in, designing, building, and selling plans for tiny houses for over a decade. When you start thinking “tiny home,” Jay’s name seems to pop up everywhere, he’s definitely a leader in the North American tiny house scene… I could adapt to 100 sq. ft., but I think it’d be intense.
