#116 Money’s Easy to Make with Dylan Megaster

10/5/2017
More
As I sit, writing this, Dylan Megaster is sitting on a mountainside filming yet another video of a tiny house builder and occupant; documenting their story of why they’ve gone tiny and what’s next for their life. If you love stories about tenacity and optimism fueled by youth, tune in this week to hear how this young YouTube sensation proves once again that there cannot be failure if one only fails to stop trying. We were lucky to catch our guest this week while he was in town for a recent...

#115 Journeying Onward with Guillame Dutilh

Ladies and Gentlemen! This week we are proud to present our first SHOUT OUT podcast interview! (Hey! Maybe we should do this more often?) And, what’s the lesson we’ve learned? You (our audience) should be listening to every episode because you never know if we’re going to invite you to be a part of our podcast DURING a podcast. (Just like we did for this week’s guest) In any case, we’re super proud that we finally captured the time and attention of a long time tiny house traveler,...

#114 Hurricanes, Floods, Fires, and Tipped Tiny Houses with Martin Burlingame

10/5/2017
More
This week’s episode is, we guarantee, the MOST fun you’ll ever have listening to a conversation about insurance. Seriously! Even we were surprised to learn that our guest this week, Martin Burlingame, not only takes the subject of tiny house insurance VERY seriously but approaches his job with humor and wit that is no-doubt unsurpassed in his predictably-dry industry. Setting aside the less-than-formal format, for this week’s episode Michelle came armed with so…many…questions. How much...

#113 From New Zealand to A Whole New Tiny World with Bryce Langston

10/5/2017
More
Drum Roll Please!!! For this week’s episode Michelle is THRILLED to have finally lassoed our guest; Actor, Traveler, Videographer, and Internet Star; Bryce Langston. After meeting him in North Carolina and experiencing her first bout of nervous dry mouth on stage, she wanted another chance to ensure this tiny house advocate on wheels got a “proper” interview. What started as Bryce’s passing interest in permaculture, became a full time obsession, that then turned into a still-in-progress...

#112 Music, Travel, and Tiny Houses with Coles Whalen

10/4/2017
More
For so many, tiny houses are more than just a home; they’re a tool that allows their occupants to live a fulfilled and creative life. This week we’re chatting with Coles Whalen, who is instead using her love of tiny houses to support her true passion; music. If you have attended the Tiny House Jamboree in years past, or one the Tiny House Living Festivals this year, you have no doubt met this Colorado native who is now enjoying riding the tiny-house wave of popularity. Armed with...

#111 Sharpening Iron Against Iron with Tyson, Zach, and Jason

10/4/2017
More
Fame is a fickle mistress and while the team at Tiny Heirloom is enjoying the spoils of their decisions which have rocketed them to the top of the HGTV viewing stats, they are also facing challenges that few other tiny house builders ever have to. In this week’s episode we have “the guys”; the hammer yielding family centric team that creates and leads and lives and builds Heirlooms, side by side. True to their young-forms, they focused early and heavily on social media and after their...

#110 Pushing the Envelope of Innovation and Boundaries - with Ryan Donato

9/19/2017
More
Often, I (Michelle) have to work pretty hard to write this; the introduction copy for a podcast episode. It’s not because our guests aren’t awesome; it’s because finding the unique words to explain just HOW awesome they are, can often be a creative challenge. So, as you might imagine my workflow includes perusing the guest’s website for additional fun clues into their particular brand of awesome. And, I gotta’ admit, this week’s introduction literally wrote itself. Within a few seconds of...

9/19/2017
More
The explosive growth of the simple-and-intentional-living movement has created opportunity for so many companies and nowhere is that more evident than with Eagle Log Cabins. This week, our chat with Vivian reminds us all that a healthy living environment leads to a healthy life. And, that a quiet and purposefully built structure leads to a purpose focused life. But the cabins that she and her partner Thomas design build are far from your Grandpa’s damp and dusty old box-like house in the...

#107 It’s a Bird, it’s a Plane, it’s a Super House Made of Steel – with Marc McQuain

8/30/2017
More
For some of us, our journey into the world of tiny houses takes many turns. But this week, our guest’s tiny house story begins on the other side of the world. What started as a business venture in the bustling city of Abu Dhabi eventually led this entrepreneur back to Austin Texas where he now builds tiny house frames from cold form steel. Here on the podcast we’ve talked about Pocket Living, and Pocket Neighborhoods; but this week we’re talking about a Pocket Shop. This idea which blends...

#106 Quack, Roar, Bark, and Baaaahhhhh - with Stephanie Arne and Tim Davison

8/30/2017

Everywhere you look, nowadays, there is a tiny house! In addition to their cute-as-a-KITTEN looks, their somewhat recent rise to stardom causes a BUZZ wherever they go! So much so that more than just simple-life-enthusiasts are now joining the HERD. Now, even the ANIMALS are starting to get in on the action…..well…….the Creative ANIMAL Foundation that is. Even if the only animal you love is your DOG or BIRD, you should listen in to this week’s interview with Stephanie and Tim, the...

#105 Hugging Trees and Editing Lives with Graham Hill

8/8/2017
More
What started as a tiny apartment experiment in 2009 turned into the internet explosion that is now TreeHugger and LifeEdited. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have no doubt been impressed and influenced by the ideas, architecture, products and tips from this week’s guest. Spurred on by the same economic and environmental issues as the tiny house movement has been, the concepts of living simply have gained impressive traction in the mainstream press, leaving product...

#104 A Giant Journey from Sea to Shining Sea with Jenna Spesard

8/8/2017
More
A typical tiny house will only be moved a few times in its lifetime. Jenna Spesard, however, built hers with the intent of hauling it more miles than even a typical RV. As such, you can then imagine how THRILLED we were to finally catch Jenna between trips and have her in the studio for this week’s interview. Even if her original plan started with a partner, the change in their relationship didn’t dampen her enthusiasm for tiny houses, traveling, or advocating for living simply. Of all the...

#103 There’s Nothing Tiny About What Faith Can Do – with Reverend Fowler

8/8/2017
More
While we have talked, more than a few times, about the concept of using tiny houses to help our homeless and disadvantaged citizens, today’s interview with Reverend Fowler is by far the most inspiring conversation we have had, to date. (Michelle even cried.) Most homeless communities focus on transition housing but the Cass Community Social Services program in Detroit provides a guaranteed inroad to tiny home OWNERSHIP! And these aren’t cookie cutter houses. Each one is as different as the...

#102 Gert, the Yurt, and a Grrl – With Kari Cooper

8/8/2017
More
One of the best parts of attending the various tiny house events that occur, almost every weekend, is meeting all of the amazing people that make up this inspiring movement. And, Kari Cooper, certainly fits that bill. This fun and inspiring woman found peace, not in a tiny house, but in a yurt. Her mobile yurt, named “Gert”, came to her as a wedding present but keeps on giving; not only to her but to all who enter. At times, immobilized by health issues, her story echoes what we hear from...

#101 Enjoying The Green, Green, Grass of Home with Byron Denhart

6/7/2017
More
We often find that when we take time to walk, to talk, to listen, and to quietly contemplate our future; it’s easier to envision it. And this week our guest, Byron with Switchgrass Tiny Homes, proves our theory. And, although this tiny house builder’s plan started out quietly enough, with the recent addition of a son; his life hasn’t been quiet since. If you have been out and about at the tiny house festivals East of the Mississippi you have, no doubt, seen Byron and his hardworking crew...

#100 The Duo Who Does It All with Joshua and Shelley Engberg

6/7/2017
More
You don’t have to appreciate Marvel Comics to enjoy this week’s interview with the dynamic duo of tiny houses, Josh and Shelley. Long before their episode on “Tiny House Nation” aired, this young power couple was already moving their lives in a direction which focused on freedom, travel, and using their talents to help others achieve their dream. And if you think that living in a tiny house with someone would be a challenge, just imagine living AND working together WITH two dogs underfoot....

If you’re planning on visiting, living in, creating, or dreaming of a tiny house community; you have no doubt heard of our guest this week; Ross Chapin. His amazing vision, his dedication, and his book “Pocket Neighborhoods – Creating Small Scale Community in a Large Scale World” have created an opportunity to reshape the way cities approach planning neighborhoods. It doesn’t matter if the house is on wheels, or on a foundation; his ideas about how to create an environment of both...

#98 Octagonal Love with Lou

6/2/2017
More
Tiny Houses come in all shapes and sizes but building most tiny houses doesn’t require the complex mathematical calculations like building a yurt does. Lou, with Octobie, must be a genius. Michelle can hardly wrap her brain around designing in dormers for her tiny house. Lou builds copulas. Michelle finds compound miter cuts intimidating; for Lou it’s another day at the office. His yurts are beautiful, efficient, unique, and we love everything about these eight-sided tiny houses. If a...

#97 Tiny Getaway Houses with Jon Staff

6/2/2017

There is nothing tiny about the vision of Jon Staff, our guest this week. And, “impressive” does not even begin to describe what he and his team have created for their guests. If you’re lucky enough to live in Boston or New York, you have no doubt heard about this amazing new way to unplug and unwind in one of Getaway’s tiny houses. So many of us live such harried lives. So many of us get caught up in our day to day lives and don’t make downtime a priority. We know we should, but there are...
