#160 There’s A First Time For Everything With Eric Goranson

9/26/2018
More
We’ve never had an on-air personality on the show. Maybe we should do it more often. Eric Goranson, host of the West Coast home radio show called Around The House With Eric G. Michelle was a guest on his radio show recently and so we thought: “Let’s turn the tables.” We didn’t know what was going to come of this interview, but it actually had quite a few nuggets in it about what to look for in a builder when it comes to not getting screwed, another weigh-in on “screws vs. nails” and ikea: is...

9/12/2018

We improvise, that’s what we do! With Shandra Morton & her dog Reno & John & Finn & Sarah Stebbins Gracious. What began as a head-scratching problem turned out to be a wonderful opportunity for us at Tiny House Podcast. When our scheduled guest couldn’t make it, we wondered what would happen if we opened the show to pre-recorded live conversations with our podcast listeners. The result? We were pleased. We think you will be too. Join us as we welcome crazy stories from hither and yon with...

9/6/2018
More
Sharon Ross is the founder of Eco Bags, a company she created after being frustrated with all the plastic bags in New York.

4/26/2017
More
What do you get when you take 7 children, 2 adults, 1 bus, and a tiny-kitchen-on-wheels on a faith-based mission to ease the loneliness of homelessness? A fun and inspiring story about a new tiny house builder, of course. This week, Marc from BIGHEART Tiny House Co, joins us to tell the story of how his family started their somewhat unintentional tiny house journey by hitting the road on a converted school bus. Over the course of 6 months, they toured the country in search of the disparaged...

Ladies and Gentlemen, Introducing….. the many personalities that are Thom Stanton! <<<< insert applause here>>>>> Here at the Tiny House Podcast we traditionally have a pretty good time but this week’s interview with Thom takes our banter to a whole new level.

#85 Starstruck with Felice Cohen

4/12/2017

If you think that living in a 200 square foot tiny house on wheels would be a challenge, consider what it might be like to live in only 90 square feet like our very-famous guest did for 5 years! You seriously don’t want to miss this week’s interview with Felice, an award winning author-blogger-speaker-consultant-and TV Personality. This lady’s got it all!

#83 Living the F.A.S.T. (Fabulous. Abundant. Simple. Tiny.) Life with Jenn Baxter

3/30/2017
More
There is, quite likely, nobody in the tiny house movement who embodies the “making lemons into Lemonade” mantra better then Jenn Baxter. While it would be understandable that she would be bitter and even a bit angry after what happened to her famous tiny house; instead, she proudly tells her story of loss and redemption, forgiveness and acceptance. And while most of us would likely cower in the face of confrontation, she held her ground and advocated for herself and has come out on top. Tune...

#82 Is This the End of the Tiny World As We Know it with Sharon Ross

3/22/2017
More
In addition to our love of tiny houses, we love guests who make us question our reality and push our own understanding of our future. And this week, Sharon the self-described AfroVivalist fits that bill, and then some! Imagine a world where all electronic devices have been disabled by a disaster. ALL OF THEM. What would you do? Where would you go? How would you survive? Admittedly, this might not be a fun or entertaining thing to think about but living intentionally isn’t always just about...

#81 Changing the Neighborhood, One Tiny at A Time w/ Sophie Szymeczek

3/15/2017
More
The tiny house movement is full of focused and engaged advocates and this week we’re interviewing a real North Carolina Pioneer. Sophie pushed the city and questioned the rules and is now proud to report that she is in the process of building a fully-permitted but less-than-300-squarefoot tiny house that is NOT on wheels; on an surplus city lot that she bought for only $5,000. These are the kinds of “if they can do it so can we” stories we love to hear. She knew that a tiny house on wheels...

#80 Ropes, Ladders, Dumbbells, and a Baby with Mike De Vivo

3/8/2017
More
People who live tiny often have more than one motivation for doing so, and our guest this week is no exception. Mike from Vivo Training Systems is no exception. His tiny house doubles as his own personal training gym, as well as a unique place for him to train and engage with his fitness clients. And, this guy really knows his stuff. After losing over 100 lbs, after surviving the harrowing and stressful process of having his house built on TV, he and his wife have launched their new tiny...

2/22/2017

We’re sure you’ve heard the adage “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” but you haven’t heard it with THIS twist… You see, Will’s jet setting juices get flowing when he’s feeling stress and we have decided that we want to be just like him when we grow up. (OK, maybe just Michelle does) Just a few months ago, one of our listeners reached out to Michelle to tell her all about Will from Tiny House Atlanta and about the impressive advocacy work he has been doing down south. He leads...

#78 Building A Wall with Andrew Odom of Tiny R(e)volution

2/15/2017
More
If you have ever wondered if Andrew has a serious side, if he thinks more deeply than he laughs, if he tires of talking about tiny houses after 8 years of living intentionally, if he accepts anyone’s opinion but his own, or if his future includes a soap box; you’ll want to tune in this week to hear the somewhat somber side of this funny guy. After overhearing him sadly comment on the homeless crisis in America, and after reading his chapter in Turning Tiny, we wanted to hear more. We wanted...

2/8/2017

What started in a small Amish community, gained momentum in the Florida high life, then became an all out mission in London, that ended with love. And the rest….as they say….is love filled history. (Do “they” really say that?) This week we’re chatting with the energetic and fun loving powerhouse couple behind United Tiny House Association, John and Fin. This funny and generous duo lives in a 300 square foot tiny house in Georgia with their six (Or 7?) cats. But even if you’re not a cat lover...

It’s not often that we get to interview tiny house enthusiasts on other continents, so this week we’re THRILLED to feature two very influential and dedicated individuals from Down Under; Darren and Lisa from Tiny Houses Australia. Even Michelle is a little jealous of the following these two have amassed since they ventured onto the tiny house scene. We think that ANY story told with an Australian accent is fun to listen to and this one is no exception. Listen in this week while we discuss...

1/18/2017

Today we chat with Tiny House Swoon owner, Steven Harrell. Steven created Swoon after a dream inspired him. This was after he had already created several other tiny house websites, including tinyhouselistings.com and tinyhousevacations.com. Obviously Steven has tiny houses flowing in his veins. But it hadn't always been that way. Before tiny houses he was a successful entrepreneur living the high life. That high life ending abruptly was a good thing because it lead to Steven finding his...

#E73 Riding Along on A Reclaimed Adventure That Leads to Love and Buns with Jess and Dan Sullivan

1/4/2017
More
Many tiny house enthusiasts start out with the the notion that they’ll build a tiny house using reclaimed materials to save money. This certainly MAKES sense. The reality of that plan, however, is often difficult to implement as Jess and Dan Sullivan will explain on this week’s episode. But, despite the challenges, they proudly report to having used 40% reclaimed materials on their utility-free tiny house. But now, they’re moving on. What? Say it isn’t so! Listen in this week while this fun...

12/28/2016

When we think of Jamaica we certainly don’t think of a small town in Vermont but that’s where we’ll be podcast partying this week. (insert steel drum sound bite here) This week we’re chatting with the Jamaica Cottage Shop’s Founder, Domenic Mangano, and delving into the transforming world of backyard sheds, cottages, chicken coops, playhouses, DIY tiny house kits, and his uber creative vision for his own tiny corner of the tiny house world.
