  1. Looks like a blissful life.💟

    This won't last long. Once they are teens it will get annoying. I would hate my mother for making me live in this tiny of a home.

  3. Just imagine trying to fuck your wife in a tiny house with 3 kids in there. Or five people each taking a shit in a tiny bathroom in a tiny house.

  4. Your kids should consider a career in the navy. They'll feel right at home.

  5. At 1:47 the house behind him is so cute looking

  6. Very lovely home and very inspiring, too. We constantly have to explain how we can live on 140qm with a family of four and not want to expand at all. Everyone seems to think you need a house when raising kids.

  7. well fer one hing m8, yer no a thinkin of yer kids! their future!? movin along!? A tiny house be at the time a grand idea! "fer Yerself!" But not fer yer family! (think on that)

  8. Is it a french, doesn't it? 😂😂

  9. amazing loved it

    Hah. This will be fun once they are teenagers

  11. I don’t know if this will work out when the kids get older.

  12. Something for me to think about. Small house with basement because we get tornado season. Root cellar and storing off season clothes n stuff. The question becomes one of access, which needn't be terrible. Steps up to the garden facilitates storage and escape if the house comes down. Yeah old fashioned but if it works who cares! 🤔😁

  13. This house is so beautiful

  14. Honestly.. this one sucks and good luck once they become teenagers.

  18. What a lovely family, and a lovely home! Yes, they have turned a "tiny house" into a "tiny, loving home" – a someone said below, WELL DONE!

  19. He kinda looks like Rodney from Star Gate

  20. ♥️🏚

  21. У каждого ребенка должно быть окно!!! Это психология!!! Желательно одинаковое!!!
    Every child should have a window!!! It's psychology!!! Preferably of the same!!!

  22. Y dont they try building little tiny homes for the children as they grow?

  23. Package because message range minimum enhance instance master practical execute.

  24. Every time I watch these videos I just wanna pack up my stuff and move into a tiny house.

    IS THAT YOU, MATTHEW PERRY?

  26. I don't know if I could live so but it seems as it's an intact family. Really cool thing! 🙂

  27. I was struck by how barren the bathroom was . . . where are the tooth brushes, combs, shampoo, etc.

  28. As a Chinese, I cannot understand what the man said with such an accent

    admirable people

  30. I’ve always felt like bedrooms are such wasted space in the home! I can sleep anywhere. You take the bedrooms out of most homes and they become a tiny home

  31. But… how do the kids make their blanket forts?!?!

  32. Hey. Man I love your videos. I have been fascinated by tiny houses since some time now, and looking at these people's experiences is really awesome. But I do think that you should make smaller videos so that rather than feeling exhausted at the end sometimes, one feels excited and energetic. Well, all in all, thanks.cheers!!😉😉

  33. Loved it 😊

  34. wait another 10 years, then they will re think of having a tiny home with those 3 kids

  35. That triple bunk bed design is AWESOME!

  36. Wow. This is amazing. I love how this house encourages the kids to spend so much time outdoors.

  37. It works for them. Keep in mind the couple have other buildings on the property to work with.

  38. Interesting

  39. Thanks so much for sharing this
