This Ultra Modern Tiny House Will Blow Your Mind


Designing and building a tiny house on wheels as a couple can be a real challenge There’s a lot of cooperation and compromise that goes into creating a space that can work Well for both parties today we’ve traveled to the Blue Mountains to visit a tiny house built by a couple who thanks to some wonderful teamwork have created themselves an amazing home Hi Lisa, right. How you doing? Good. Thank you guys to meet you get a met. How’s it go? Mate? Good. Thanks. This home is Absolutely stunning. It is very sleek. Stylish and modern, isn’t it? Thank you now. Absolutely I want to talk about the home but first let’s talk about the land that you’re on because this is something very special Isn’t it? Yeah, it’s 16 acres and yeah, basically goes down to a creek There’s a little swimming hole down there and back up the other side of that Ridge there So yeah, it’s nice and secluded and how did you come to be on this property? Basically about ten years ago, maybe eight years ago there was a big bushfire that came through this area and Burnt down a lot of the homes in this street and and in this area so we scored this block out of it basically And then this area that you’ve built onto the house as well creates a really lovely space outdoors to enjoy it all doesn’t it? Yeah I think it’s pretty important with tiny living to be able to expand outside and get that bit more use out of it You know, can you get people over knurl in the tiny house? It’s very cramped. You need to come out you can spread out Yeah, not to mention. It’s a nice view. You mean on a sunny day. It’s really nice out here now Let’s talk about the tiny house. As far as Tiny’s go. It is not very small Is it I guess as far as Tiny’s go, you know, it’s a lot smaller than my full-sized house that I came from But yeah, it’s pretty lofty. What size is it? the floor is nine meters long by 2.5 meters wide but because of the rakes on either end the roof is a couple of meters longer Yeah, the height is four point three on that side to the bottom Burying there’s the chimney to take into account and some are multiple stuff But yeah I think one of the things in our loft we wanted to be able to stand up and walk around Because we didn’t want yeah, I’d have to crawl in or or anything like that So I’m happy with it anyway And now talk to me about the style of the house because it is really interesting how you’ve created this entirely black exterior I guess it is a bit stark, but I just like black and I think it actually kind of blends into the valley. Like there’s a few black features obviously from the file And yeah, I think it kind of suits it and it looks quite striking here So I think you’ve done a really good job with that. Thank you What was it that actually inspired you to build a tiny house on wheels. That was me I’ve been obsessed for a while watching reality TV shows about tiny houses. Googling them Instagram Facebook You name it, you know hooking him up Sort of wanted to build one or at least buy one at some stage and then I met Matt. So now I have one say We met online It was one evening at the pub with my best friend and she wanted to play with my phone and my online dating apps and It sort of sparked from there. We had a date at a very seedy pub. Yeah, that was her idea. Yep I needed to get away play music. Yeah, yeah a Station. Yep, and Yeah, she really just wouldn’t shut up about these tiny houses and I really hadn’t seen much about them But she’s showing me all these Instagram accounts and I thought I didn’t really think much of it at the time but ya know she kept on about it, so Yeah, once I’ve been – it seemed achievable, you know, and I do like a challenge so I thought no give it a go What’s the worst that can happen, you know throw a bunch of stuff out? Yeah, it’s so I guess I convinced you to build a tiny house build me. It’s not here’s actually hmm. Yeah, she did Give me full full disclosure. I even gave him quite some time to bail out No laying in bed and I said, are you sure you want to do this? I? Absolutely positive you want to do this after the trailer was born. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah Once the frame was on that was it And now this project was done as a DIY build wasn’t it? Yeah majority of it I did myself or with some help from friends and colleagues and stuff. So yeah, they did hate a lot of it, but I You know in the end, I think everyone’s pretty proud of it and you have a background in construction, don’t you? Yeah, I do run a bathroom and kitchen renovation company and so a lot of it was sort of Ideas that I’d seen around or things that I’d really wanted to try out, but I couldn’t get anyone to go for so, okay Yeah, I thought I’ll do it myself, you know Now before we go inside, I want to talk about the contraption at the back of the house, which I noticed walking down What on earth is that? that is my Custom-designed cat Ron it seems simple when I first began doing it But definitely had to lean on the notes to give me a hand with it basically, I’ve got these two cats and they’re my children and I didn’t want anything to happen to them moving to the bush or I Didn’t want dead birds on my bed and Also, I didn’t want the key litter inside because it’s too small. So yeah works. Well, they love it actually What a great idea. That is very clever Well, can we take a look inside the house and check out what you’ve done on the inside? Let’s do it. All right Thank you very much after you This is absolutely stunning you really do notice the extra height in here, don’t you? Yeah you do Now the design in here is really interesting and quite beautiful I really love all the artistic features that you’ve put in this light feature at the top here is really special Isn’t it? Yeah, it’s fun. Yeah good. Oh really a couple of lights fairy lights and some plants me I did get it up there by myself somehow which was a challenge But yeah I think it came out pretty well for a couple of old rusty sheets of Steel Westover it certainly did and Now tell me about the lounge area that we’re in right now. This is very spacious Yeah, one of the things that we just like to sort of lay on the couch and watch TV of the most most evenings So we definitely wanted a full-sized couch, but we had to make it because we couldn’t find anything with decent storage so Yeah, I traded my couch from my other house to my sister and she made these cushions for us And yeah, the kitchen guys made the drawers pull out and everything. So yeah Definitely no compromise on the size of the TV here. No, no compromise. There was a bigger one intended But well, there was a compromise exactly. I only bring my larger one, but In truth. Yeah, even this is potentially like pushing it for being too big. Yeah, I can admit Yeah, and lots of room for a book storage and a few knickknacks as well Yeah Just bits and pieces some of my favorite some of the ones you can’t really go past cookbooks University textbooks those sorts of things and then the rest they’re all giving away or put in storage or loaned out, you know And you are studying at University at the moment I am I’m doing a bachelor’s degree in Indigenous Studies through the University of South Australia And you’ve got plenty of space to study in here. Yeah so most of the time we watch telly down here and we have a loft I Can go and study and just take some noise-cancelling headphones me. Everything’s good Fantastic, and now this over here is that your cat door it certainly is those little suckers come up a shoot out Through the side of the couch and then out this door just here and 2:00 in the morning when they go in and out flat Out it’s pretty entertaining that is such a clever idea. And then you’ve got a really nice wood fire here as well Yeah hasn’t been cold enough yet to really get it going. But we did one test runs and it yeah, it’s pretty great Yeah, and then the kitchen this is very spacious Absolutely, no compromises in here other know we wanted a full size kitchen in here I came from a very small house with no kitchen and Matt came from a very big house We’ve quite a large kitchen. So it sort of meet in the middle. You’ve even got these spectacular marble bench tops Now, this is something you do not often see in a tiny house. No, definitely not Yeah, I think I potentially would have just done it in timber if I could do it again I just gotta get some used to you know, designing things that way so yeah, I’m stoked for them though Absolutely now, can you walk me through the design and the features in this kitchen? Yeah, so we have a full size stone We’ve got a full size microwave and oven and afraid to be asleep. And then we’ve got our Butler sink We’ve got our pots and pans in there dishwasher I Don’t necessarily know what’s in that drawer. They skirt His glasses glasses and tea towels in there and help away top away and then we could elect crockery Things like that upstairs and I really like how you’ve managed to build a lot of the appliances into the stairs Yeah, we’ve noticed a quite a few tiny houses Sort of in and around that have their storage in their stairs and all something that we thought would be good for us You know we have pantry in these sort of four drawers and then we’ve got our extra stairs that do have more storage in them for knickknacks and bits and pieces and again the lighting in this space is very Well done. Yeah. Thank you We wanted a bit of understand lighting when you get up at 4 o clock in the morning You do want to be able to get down the stairs. So that’s one. It also doesn’t wake the person still in bed And then moving over here what is going on with these mirrors? There are wardrobes right? She’s in hers Hey good lots of hanging storage And then we’ve got a bunch of drawers which open up all on soft clothing so you can slam a wall much as you like and then we let’s take a Walk in wardrobe light now that really does give you both quite a lot of closet storage, doesn’t it? Yeah, we do It means we’ve got 1h, and we’re not fighting over hanging space or anything like that and mine is obviously more messy That’s not paranoid about mine Quite a clever idea doing that as well and sort of having that as a transition between the bathroom and the living space Yeah, definitely means you’re not sort of walking straight into a kitchen. You’ve got a bit of something in between Absolutely, and now I have to ask you about the floors because this is really beautiful how you’ve done this transition from the timber floors And to the tiles this must have taken forever Yeah It did so first step was the Tyler doing his bed and he basically tiled it flat and chiseled them all the ones that I marked and then the next step was the carpenter and I Making up paper templates and jigsaw hang out the timber to fit so I don’t think he’d do it again in a hurry But I’m happy with the way it worked out. I Bit, I mean you can see how much work has gone into that, but it really is a very artistic result So well done on that and then behind us is your bathroom and wow, this is very impressive It is definitely a feature of the house Yeah something I definitely had to try and get right building bathrooms for a living. So Yeah few ideas in here. I’ve always wanted to sort of try but the raked wall was a challenge and yeah I love a double shower. Just someone our mind each day Yeah, I never thought I would see a tiny house with a double shower. You know, the only one who said that That is really impressive now Obviously the home is a little bit bigger But you’ve definitely given a priority of space here in the bathroom heaven here You do actually spend a lot of time in here surprisingly You know you get dressed in here you get undressed in here you have a shower you often in front of the mirrors doing whatever shaving or Whatever. So you need it sort of a nice space and somewhere that we can both be in at the same time lots of mirrors In here as well lots of mirrors. These are actually storage as well so you can open them up That’s he’s in hers again means they’re not sort of in each other’s spaces a tiny house often you are saying If we sort of keep things separate like that Then we’re not gonna sort of clash in any way and then you’ve got a flushing toilet in here. We have a flushing toilet Yes. Yeah, we used the existing septic so we didn’t have to do a composting toilet Much to lose his disappointment because she really wanted one but there was no way I was gonna do that. So Yeah, definitely a flushing toilet Well, I guess it had to be some compromise this somewhere you did get the tiny house after all do you get the tiny house? So yeah, I’m happy fair enough and then should we check out the upstairs? Absolutely Now it’s really interesting to me how you have divided up the loft areas into two different Sections and then been able to connect them via this walkway here Yeah, we made our master loft. Obviously. It’s a king-sized bed in it with two little side tables There’s not a whole lot of room beside the bed thing. You can squeeze in and out You still have to shimmy down the bed to get in and out of the bed. That’s okay I think having a walkway makes this can loft a lot more usable Just having to get your mates to get up a ladder or maybe your mom or whatever. Some people probably wouldn’t make it so Yeah, I think overall makes that a lot more usable space here as well This is where you really notice the extra height and it’s not that much extra height But it’s enough to enable you to stand before you get into bed And it really just makes this whole area feel so much more spacious Yeah it does mattaniah particularly tall but being able to stand up was really important in our design rather than Somewhat feeling like they’re just an additional space. I think it really makes this feel like a second floor to the place So, yeah, absolutely I mean, I’m six foot four and I can almost Stand up in here without touching my head. And in fact when I’m under the skylight, I absolutely can do that Yeah, so it really goes to show there’s a lot of extra room that has been created in this The roof windows as well What a great feature in here. I mean, it’s lovely how you’ve extended them along the entire line of the roof So you’ve always got a very dynamic view of the changing sky, don’t you? Yeah, you do at nighttime It’s really lovely. You can see them stars during the day It does create a bit of an oven, but we’d have put the blinds on so it’s not so bad But yeah, it really creates a lot of extra space. You don’t feel so enclosed now You’ve been living in the tiny house for four months is the home living up to your expectations Absolutely. Yeah I came from a small house. So it was the transition was pretty easy for me coming from a bigger house Yeah, it did take me some convincing to sort of wrap my head around the idea at first but I can genuinely say I don’t miss anything from my large normal house Designing it and building it together was a fun thing to do as well, you know Yeah, I’m sure we learnt a lot about each other in that process. So yeah, we did good Well, and I think one of the things that you’ve done really well is in the design of this house you’ve obviously really taken a lot of consideration into what your individual needs are and the things that were Important to both of you and combine them to make sure that they were present in this home That was the whole idea is like if you are going to move in together You do need to make sure that you both have spaces that are specifically for you or that you specifically need So yeah, it’s important. Even if it means you have to end up with a flushing toilet Even if it means I’ve done it with a flushing toilet No, no place is perfect. No, that’s right. And now can we talk about the budget not including the land? What was the cost of realizing this home? That’s a good question? I did not add up every sort of nickel and dime There were a few favors and stuff in there and a lot of that I did myself So, yeah, I think it probably worked out around eighty Ninety thousand or something like that I think eighty thousand dollars is a remarkable budget and obviously that also does reflect that you’ve put a lot of Labor into it yourself And no doubt a few boxes of beer in the process So the tiny house is pretty much a dream come true now I’m gonna find something else to want and come true for you. Yeah, it’s an achievement for me. Yeah We love the space we’ve only been here a couple months four months, but With making it out Now, I think it’s starting to feel like home Yeah, it’s actually being really nice just being able to be in the space finally finishing the space off. And yeah I can’t really imagine wanting any more house No more house, isn’t it? This is all you need. This is all we’re getting. Yeah, the design of this home is absolutely Beautiful. I can really see how much love and attention you have poured into the construction of this home The features are beautiful. The land that it sits on is truly spectacular. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with me Thank you. Thank you. Thanks for coming. My pleasure I am so very impressed with the quality of design that’s gone into this house Every inch has been incredibly well thought-out Met and Lisa both knew exactly what they wanted in a home and they’ve worked hard to make it happen And the result is this a beautiful modern and very functional home that is perfectly meeting both of their needs You

  1. Guy: All these people lost their homes in a bush fire so I got a sweet deal on this land.

    Karma: Let me introduce you to Lisa. She likes tiny houses.

  2. $90,000 for this house? That's 63 Lakhs Indian Rupees.
    We can build a 2 floor, 2000 sq foot house with that money easily.
    Oh man, its not cheap to live in USA huh??

  3. Wow!! Didn’t she hit gold! Found a lonely depressed cat dude on Tinder with time & money who needed a project and BOOMB!! Home AND LAND sorted! You go girl! ✊🏼 He’s CLEARLY the bread winner here as well. Wonder how much $ she contributed to this LOL. She’s probably a mad [email protected]!!! Haha 😜 maybe I’ll try to find some chick w money who needs something to do. Thanks for the idea darl ✌🏼

  4. This must be aacpted everywhr as the saving earth ,more space u took for houses more land ur require . This can be the eco frndly projects for govt n architectures

  5. this is my favourite so far.. I always loves the "his & hers" idea. Brilliant and thank you for sharing this wonderful experience

  6. They are selling the blueprints for $250.00 and turned this exposure into a business. I think they are happy now…

  7. I could never live in this home with another person, for a 1 person tiny home it would be the perfect size!

  8. good grief that guy does amazing work, dump her come to America and build these for a living, get yourself a company started.

  9. Honestly, I don’t want to jump to conclusions and say that their relationship is unhappy. We only got a glimpse of their life. Hell, maybe they are, maybe they aren’t. Maybe he is. Personally my first guess if anything is that he’s shy and reserved and feels weird being recorded and interviewed for millions of people to see, and might feel self conscious about the giant red area on the side of his face. Just a thought, though. Maybe people are right about their relationship or maybe it’s my theory.

  10. She must have some great pussy and fucking skills to have dat poor man zombie like.had him build her a tiny house and him live in it and u can see he hates it.her cock sucking skills most be on point to keep him zombiefied.

  11. When shit hits the fan, all these libtard weirdos thinking they are doing nature a favor are going to be soil food in the first month. So they win I guess?

  12. Why is everyone saying that he seems sad? He honestly has the same personality as me when I’m being interviewed, nervous and not excited because it’s hard to show emotions sometimes. He seemed to have trouble showing emotions but I can see him and his wife having a lot of fun off of this show

  13. It is amazing, for us italians to see as there is no bidet all over the world, a necessity here where all and every house has one. No apartment mini or grand comes without.

  14. I saw your house on Instagram. I immediately recognized the transition between the tiles and the wooden floor that I just LOVE. Your house is stunning and absolutely beautiful! My husband and I plan on moving in a shipping container house and your house gives us a lot of inspiration. Also Living Big in a Tiny House is the channel that finished convincing me to move into a Tiny House!!! I cannot wait to order your book! ❤️

  15. I’m sorry I didn’t notice the “depression” actually I loved the video and the design of the house … I just feel they are kinda shy but I loved the video the house and the beautiful couple ♥️ wish them the best of the best and they care about animals and nature and people like that is always good and happy ♥️ sorry if my English is not the best 😅 still learning
    Saludos from Costa Rica 🌴

  16. It’s definitely a conversational style way of living. I can honestly say, it’s very unique, serenity at its best and creativity on Steroids 🖤🖤🖤

  17. People talking about how sad he looks but she's in university so I wonder what the age gap is. Maybe it's why their life is so boring.

  18. Half of these comments are damn funny, but half are also disgusting. I can relate because I'm shy and awkward around people, and I would be double in front of a stranger and a camera. How this people seem to know everything about their relationship from a 20 minute video is everything that's wrong with the world.

  19. This is the most impressive tiny house I have ever seen so far. Especially that outdoor cat space. I want something like this of my own. Hope I could build one someday. 🙏☺️

  20. "Now I'm gonna have to look for something new to want"…annnnnddd this justifies everything the poor guy said. Can't wait until he's broken things off and wheels his beautiful house elsewhere.

  21. We just need fair taxes.. Why do we even pay taxes anyway? Does anyone know? Are they sending our tax money to GOD for escrow when we die?

  22. Hopefully she at least cooks or something. This man deserves a medal. The house is wonderful, good job to both of them.

  23. You can tell the guy is a good dude because of what he’s willing to do for his cats. I hope he finds a woman who appreciates him for that, and not his tiny house building skills.

  24. they look at each other like there's a million things under the surface they are suppressing about each other and come off as awkward trying to act normal and nice..although he has put work in he comes off as a non committal beta nerd and she comes across as a stealthy passive-aggressive alpha bitch who knows how to wear various masks for a purpose lol wtf? I tried to hold myself back but viewing the comments makes it seem less crazy of an appraisal…I think he needs to rough it in the bush to become a real man instead of playing lapdog to her in a converted shipping container which aint even a cage with golden bars as he stares out the windows at greenery and wishes he could be one of the birds sitting on a branch…able to fly away to brighter horizons…his morbid favourite colour of black which aint a colour but a shade provides more clues to the silent fart like awkward chemistry they have..she got her dream and he got a box as an achievement…next step is his evolution beyond her box and out of that box probably for another box inside a box to be boxed in by until he finds out who he is at 55 a broken down wreck hung over after waking up in the early afternoon in a filthy room littered with beer bottels in cambodia next to a thin dark sleeping whore on the bed who understood his dribble and needed the dough

  25. I don’t like the “yes or no” questions ALL the time. All you hear are, “yes, …..” . Can you switch up the questions? Try Open ended or just having the describe something or like, “hey, I noticed this. Can you explain more on it..”

  26. That catio is the best I've seen for a tiny home! Nice effort! Plus 20 million views on this video!! WOW! Ignore the comments, the dude just seems a little nervous on camera. If you have ever been recorded like this, I'm sure you could relate.

  27. I think a tiny home is a GREAT idea. Mainly due to two factors.. 1st. most tiny homes arent so tiny as one may think, As most tiny homes are in fact as large if not larger than a standard studio apartment which most people live in quite comfortably. 2nd. tiny homes built from storage containers can be as large as a typical one to two bedroom apartment. meaning all the extra expenses that comes with having a full blown house including renting an equally sized apartment (lets not even get into buying a condo) , come at a fraction of the cost with a "tiny" home. As long as such places provide proper heat and water (hot and cold) a tiny home is truly a brilliant option. Lets also not forget, tiny homes are anything but new concept. generation past, families with considerable income often purchased vacation beach bungalows and woodland cabins. those were in fact tiny homes.

  28. This is one of THE MOST beautiful tiny homes I have ever seen!!! As a mother of 2 indoor cats I can especially appreciate the "cat run"! Very well done!

  29. Yeah, you're right! It absolutely blew my mind. From the tremendously amazing design & materials and the budget… truely an extra ordinary!!! I love it💗💗💗

  30. I just watched this for the first time without the audio. Then I read the comments about the seemingly awkward chemistry between the couple. So I immediately watched it again with the audio turned on and… I don't get it. They seem like two nice, private people who let a very tall man whom they don't know come into their home and film every inch of it for a world of strangers to gawk at. If they seemed awkward, it wasn't with each other, it was with the invasion of privacy they were somewhat hesitant to allow. The whole time they were filming, they were probably thinking, "Should we be doing this?"

    Their home is gorgeous and we should all be thanking them for sharing it with us!
