The Tiny Life Introduces Tiny House Quick Clips

In the last two months The Tiny Life has put together a YouTube playlist of essential videos that address hot topics in the tiny house world including comparing tiny houses to RVs, getting permitted with DMV, and even OpEd pieces like why RVIA can be a bad thing for the tiny house world.

Hosted by editor Ryan Mitchell and co-hosted by tiny houser Macy Miller, the quick clips are barely more than 2-3 minutes each and are driven by quality audio as well as key text points. Save one visual video they are all audio recordings culled from the Tiny House Chat podcast.

In the first video Why I’d Rather Live In A Tiny House And Not A RV Mitchell notes perhaps the most obvious reasons people are attracted to tiny houses. Tiny houses look like a house. “It says to you psychologically…it communicates, that it is a home.” And while not all of the points raised in the quick clips will be agreed upon by listeners they are well founded and delivered.

The Tiny Life Quick Clips currently has the following in the playlist:

Ask The Tiny Life – Q&A Video

I wanted to give something a try, which I haven’t done before, but I think would be a lot of fun.  If you hang out enough on YouTube, you’ll see loads of Q&A videos.

The concept is simple, ask a question by either leaving a comment here or using the hash tag    #askthetinylife on Twitter

Questions can be about almost anything: tiny houses, living life tiny, my life, thoughts on a topic etc.  I will say interesting, amusing and unique questions get brought to the top of the list.

Next Steps For The Tiny Life

So it’s official, I’ve been living in my tiny house and while its still a work in progress, its at a point where I can live in it and do a lot of what I need to do in it.  Right now I have a make shift kitchen, but in the coming months I’ll start to build out my final kitchen after I get back from what I’m announcing in the video below.  I also need to install the floor trim which will take a few hours and then put in tile in the bathroom, again a few hours.  I hit a huge milestone a little bit ago by finally connecting my water meter to my house, which was a quarter of a mile away from each other!  I’ll do a post on that soon.

But before I get into that, I wanted to share this video with you about what is next for me and The Tiny Life

Building Philosophy

I saw this video originally on Tiny House Design’s page, but thought it was so excellent that I needed to share it here.  This video talks about how using natural wood that he milled himself and integrating a hand made aesthetic really impacts you deeply.  There are a lot of really great gems in this one, so be sure to check it out.

Victorian Bus Conversion

I have been spending time looking at bus conversions and came across this video by Jake as he talks about how he built his bus and also give a tour of the bus.  His bus is a Victorian style to it and he use a lot of reclaimed materials to build most of the furniture and storage.  He also shows some of downsides to campers, RV’s and 5th wheels by showing a cut away of a travel trailer he has, he then compares this to the bus.  He gets into some of the details of the plumbing and water systems that I haven’t seen anywhere else, so it was good to see a good application of these systems.
