From Texas-sized 2 Tiny House For Three

TinyHouse43 v1.0 Video Tour

Greetings! I have posted a pair of heavily detailed video tours of our tiny house to our own YouTube channel called TINY HOUSE FOR THREE. I’ve also embedded them at the bottom of this post for sake of ease.

I want to again remind folks that our house is not 100% completed, and therefore you’re going to see plenty of projects left to complete. I also intentionally didn’t do a thorough clean on the house before filming, because let’s face it – how often have you seen a house with kids and pets be immaculate other than on magazine covers and heavily staged TV shows?! Yup, that’s what I thought! The only thing that would have made this video more accurate to our real, day-to-day tiny house living would be to have had R.A.D playing with his cars in his room and Brand sitting in the nook studying or playing video games with more dirty dishes on the counter and me sprawled out on the couch reading a magazine. You may wrinkle your nose at some of our unfinished work or the dishes in the sink because it’s not aesthetically pleasing, and we’ve already had some folks give unsolicited snipes about our design choices and layout (“Only thing better would be tiny house with a better design than a hallway… 😬”). Regardless of your own preferences for what you think a tiny house should look like, including your own if you go that route, you need to keep one highly important fact in mind:

Β THIS IS OUR TINY HOME, NOT YOURS! πŸ’–

We built OUR house to OUR standards for OUR needs and to OUR budget and time frame, and we aren’t done yet!! We chose to go on and share both photos and a video tour of our work-in-progress house now because 1) it’s going to be a while before we really have it ALL done to our satisfaction and 2) because we want to encourage others, especially those who have little to no help for their build who are trudging along fretting about whether or not they’ll ever finish it, that IT’S OKAY FOR YOUR HOUSE TO NOT BE PERFECT by the time you are ready to move in! Sure, it’s a royal pain in the keester to live in a construction zone, especially a TINY construction zone, but it CAN. BE. DONE.
Your house doesn’t have to be HGTV ready to be loved, to be lived in, and to be proud of. The haters and trolls will be there no matter how pristine your floors are, how white your walls are, or how sparkling your expensive hammered copper sink that you simply couldn’t resist is, so just keep on keeping on! πŸ˜‰ Be proud of what you’ve accomplished so far, what you’ll continue to complete in the future, and of the very fact you had the cajones to start in the first place!! I’ve found some of the most vocal critics of our tiny house and of many others don’t even live in a tiny house and have no plans to do so. What suddenly makes them the experts on tiny house building, design, and living?! Oh that’s right…. not a damn thing! ☺️ So just remember….

YOU ROCK, AND SO DO WE!!Β 

Now that I’ve dismounted the soap box and without any further ado, may I proudly present our unfinished, unkempt TinyHouse43 v1.0 in all its video tour glory!

πŸ’™πŸ‘πŸ’œ

P. S. I should also point out this isn’t the, “and here’s the kitchen, and over there is the bathroom,” type tour. I actually share useful information about our house that anyone building or living in a tiny house might find useful. That’s why combined the tour is 30 minutes long! 😜

    Love that you’re sharing your work in progress. So often we see perfectly finished tiny homes (and bigger homes) on tv.
    Quite smitten with your shower curtain would love to track one down for my daughters dorm room. Any idea where you found it?
    Thanks so much!

      I know I already replied to you on FB, but for anyone else wondering about the shower curtain, it’s from DENY, as is our duvet. I can’t recall the names of the patterns, but I’m betting Google could help with that. ❀
