      Woohoo! 🥳 so happy for the 2023 season. This home is so lovely! I especially love the landscaped garden and aesthetic of the house with the mixed materials of old and new. The washing machine outside makes a lot of sense! Love that idea. What a great build, I only wonder why they opted for a septic toilet and not a compost one 🤔

      @Laurent de backer lol yes for sure as long as they're happy it's all that matters. Seems like they have good memories building the house and it has a sentimental value to them. I'd love to have a little guest house like this in the back yard (I'd probably spend a lot of time there too. Lol)
      And yeah I agree they need a new couch. 😂😂😂

      @Iam Wooth I agree with you. In the end, it's their house, you know? So it doesn't matter what others think. As long as they are happy, that's the only thing that counts. It wouldn't be for me personally either but that's because i'm in a wheelchair because of my disease that i had when i was 23. But if i could just "live normal" i would love a house like this. (Maybe with a bigger couch though. 😁) But other than that, (as long as you're young) i think you can manage this house. 😀

    Would love to see 'small homes' for 4 people (family with teenagers for example). This felt like a fairly typical cottage, but it would be interestingly to see how to apply tiny house principles to a 3 bedroom family.

      @Schuyler Geery-Zink In central europe 100 m2 (about 1000 ft2) bungalows are decently common family homes with 3 bedrooms. Wouldn't even call them small. I am aware though that in the US average home sizes are from the European perspective very extravagant. The thing I would love to see is a tiny home of around 60 m2. If a tiny house can be enough for 2 people with 37m2, and a lot of spaces (bathroom and kitchen) you only need once whether you have 2 people or 4 people... then I think 60m2 should be possible.

      Yah I’ve got a small 2 bed 1 bath house built in the 80s. But even if we added to it, it would still be small compared to other houses. It’s 1,100 sq ft. But if we had several kids and just wanted to expand rather than move… I like seeing lots of concepts.

      @Luzr True. Confining the home to what can fit on a standard or even slightly extra-wide trailer means living in a tunnel. I've lived in an apartment like that. Would much prefer a small home with the rooms squarer & more flexible to design, to a tiny where many of the design choices (like built-in modern sofas w/storage) are forced.

      Not having the mobility downsides - ie: specific max dimensions - let's you build something that is not necessarily much larger, but that gives a far greater sense of having room to breathe.

    Now this is my idea of a functional tiny home. The full height loft makes ALL the difference. I'm not a fan of the half height lofts you typically find in tiny homes, it's just not practical from a comfort standpoint, in my opinion. This slightly larger take on the tiny home concept make a lot of sense to me. I'd go even a bit larger and add a guest bedroom, but this is so well thought out and nicely styled. Well done guys!

    Happy New Year! Love your channel. It's so inspiring to see all these amazing tiny homes. It'd be great to see something a little different... perhaps a video of some sort for those who don't live in a tiny home but ideas to implement the tiny home mentality into their homes. Whether it be smaller dish washers, only two stove tops, or whatever the case may be.
    Anyway, keep up the great work because I'm sure it's making a big impact.

      I get your point, but did you know that Amazon carries such things as small/drawer-type dishwashers, among their many selections, as well as two-burner stove tops, countertop ovens that can be mounted under cabinets---pretty much whatever is needed. Also, just going into any good search engine will bring up tons of results for nearly anything one could want. Many countries are producing some wonderfully innovative things for small houses.

    LOVED seeing this "small" home. It's okay to not be tiny. It's okay to design to our needs. LOVED the red bricks too. Personally I love a single floor home, no up or down stairs, so that it's good for old age too, but this house looked loved, pristine and lived in at the same time. The plants inside really make it come to life too.
    I think Tiny is mostly for people who want to be able to move their home. To relocate it. For people who know they want to stay put, tiny has a different meaning. Small is okay. I love how it gives just a little bit more leeway in design and possibilities. I'd love to see this one in another four years or so? To see how the garden did, for one! :D

    This is DEFINTELY one of my favorites. This shows how even the outside area can be just as important as the interior when creating your home. You can see how much time and thought went into every detail of it. They are so consistent with their purposeful small footprint and repurposing of materials in everything. Every episode that shows different sizes and shapes of homes can really inspire people to try to have/create a home similar to these and make it their own.

      Indeed, our homes should be healing places...my own apartment is one for me....but I know that sometimes, one is also grateful to just get a room off the streets for a while. I was homeless for 8 1/2 months ten years ago, not because I couldn't afford a place, but because of the underhanded thing a landlord did to me, kicking me out of his rental place and nearly ruining my reputation while doing it.
      I was very thankful to get a room in a boarding house just as winter started; stayed there for four long years before finally moving 800 miles away, and now having a sweet little apartment that is exactly what I need, and what I looked for for nearly ten years before finding it, far from my home state and city.

    I'm speechless over this one... You have pulled together and pulled off a most stunning and stylish home... The recycled wood was wowsome... Gave this home so much character... I loved its salvage history... As to the views...!!! Capitalising on them with that glass was essential. Thank you, Benj and Holly, for sharing your beautiful home with us...

    Wow this is the best so far of 2023. Never imagined a tiny house like this to be possible. Another couple composed of a maker (the man) and a dreamer (the lady).

    Always so nice to see the various unique tiny house, but I will never forget that one cool tiny airBnB build atop a tree, which had a stunning surprise even for Bryce. For me, that one takes the cake.

    Bravo first tiny home in Australia that has recognised the indigenous land owners and have paid respect to them here.
    I have to say truly the best "tiny" tall home I've seen in a long while.
    This is a beautiful couple who have done a fantastic job with their home.
    I have to say as usual Bryce and Rasa showcased this home in such a way we could appreciate and enjoy this couple's home. 🙏🏾👌🏾🙂

      I noticed the recognition of those who came before as well - both family and the communities of peoples who lived in that place in the past - the Djab Wurrung. Given that so much of the Tiny House movement reflects purposeful living, reflecting respect for the land and for the future of the planet, it only makes sense to acknowledge all the societies who did this throughout history.

    This is one of the most amazing house I've ever seen! Plenty of ideas to live big in a small house. Well done Bryce... and Rasa!
    Why not to keep exploring this kind of living enviroment, usefull for those who live in countries where you can't live in tiny houses?

    I must be getting really enamored with tiny homes/houses! This is my favorite by far and all I would need in my life! With retirement on the horizon and a new world order, this is the IDEAL home for me. I am so stoked and interested. Very well recorded and your vibe is so inviting and comforting..... I respect your journey of love.... absolutely gorgeous and so doable. I love this home, did I say that already? Thanks so much Benj and Holly for sharing your home.

    Beautiful. They can stand upright upstairs. That’s a rare find. I love it. I wouldn’t want to crawl on my knees in my older years. More tiny homes should be built this way. Thanks for sharing. 😁💕

    Thank you Benj and Holly for sharing your beautiful home with us. I love the really tiny houses, but they don't work for everyone, so it's great that this channel showcases some bigger tinies too as it proves that you don't have to either build on a trailer OR live in a huge house - there are some in between possibilities.

    I would love to see some more bookworm houses! Tiny/small living is hard when you have a large book collection that you wish to display and have accessible as well.

    I totally agree with your little analysis at the end about being the best of both worlds. This type of home is what we need everywhere. It's beautiful, spacious, functional, reasonably affordable (even if was 2x the price for non-DIY) and encourages life beyond consumerism and filling your life with stuff you don't need and won't use.

    Love your channel. This is one of the most unusual & beautiful homes. Lots of nice features in bedroom (love the pullout nightstand & hanging closet). The big windows & views & beautiful tile, & other materials, make this one extra special. Thanks Bryce & Rasa. Very nice couple.

    What a beautiful place. Definitely the creators of this space did it with a lot of love. The materials used, the distribution of the space and the design show the dedication they put into the creation of this beautiful house. My favorite aspects: The staircase, the large windows, books everywhere, the space for reading in the room and the beautiful view of the landscape that you can appreciate sitting there!
