#125 One Photographers Not-So-Tiny Dream - ~ with Mandy Lea

12/11/2017
More
The Podcast Crew is lucky. We’re lucky that we get to meet, and interview, and promote people who are re-defining the American Dream. We’re lucky that we get to inspire our listeners with the stories of creative and amazing people who have taken control of their lives, who define success on their own terms, and who shun other’s ideas of what “normal” is. And, our teardrop travelling guest this week is no exception. After a long bout of depression, Many Lea found the motivation to change her...

#124 From Child Actor to Tiny House TV Host ~ with John Weisbarth

12/11/2017
More
There are some who think the television shows that feature tiny houses have “ruined” the tiny house movement, inspiring so many to build bigger than they can afford; or need. In reality, however, the TV shows have done more to mainstream tiny houses than any other medium could. They inspire millions and have given golden opportunities to some of our favorite builders. This week we’re interviewing the man leading the charge on the longest running tiny house TV show, John Weisbarth; Host of...

#123 The Evolution of Kasita ~ with Jeff Wilson

12/11/2017
More
Remember the guy who sat by the side of the road, clipping his nails, during our podcast interview? Remember the guy who lived in a dumpster for a year and is actually proud to call himself “Professor Dumpster”? We certainly do and following our first interview with Jeff Wilson, he invited us to “look him up” if we were ever in Austin, Texas. So, Michelle did. And, following her recent visit, she knew she must invite him back to tell the next chapter of the story that is Kasita. Whatever...

#122 Nomad by Heredity With Dominique Moody

11/3/2017
More
Dominique Moody is iconic as her art. Her art is iconic as her tiny house. That’s because her tiny house IS art. And her Home. With more than a thousand years of family heritage behind her work as an artist and her mobile home The Nomad it was inevitable there would be more stories than we could cover in an hour. From Germany to the US South and beyond Dominique’s life has been - and continues to be - a living artistic expression of family, meaning, deeply-held connections between Home and...

#121 Easy Dwellers Built and Delivered with PDX Style ~ with Patrick Quinton

11/3/2017
More
As the tiny house movement grows, so do the opportunities. Tiny houses are now being embraced not only as affordable housing for the masses, but as rolling platforms for corporate brands, and a very impressive source of short term rental income. This week, however, we’ll be discussing a whole new spin in the tiny house concept. If you live in the Portland area, have a large lot, are considering adding an ADU (accessory dwelling unit) but don’t have the patience for dealing with contractors...

#120 If You’re Not Excited, You’re Not Paying Enough Attention ~ with Andrew Morrison

11/3/2017
More
Last year at the Tiny House Jamboree, Michelle’s introduction of Andrew Morrison to the stage literally brought tears to her eyes. (and yes, it’s on video and quite embarrassing) This week, Andrew’s story of how his dedication to the tiny house movement has spurred true change, may just have that effect on you too! (our words, not his) It is hard to find unique words to describe our affection for his work but in a nutshell, we don’t know of two more hard-working advocates than Andrew and his...

#119 Ladies and Gentlemen…The One…The Only…Pete Nelson!

11/3/2017
More
If you’re a fan of the TV show “Tree House Masters” or you fondly recall your childhood days hoarding scrap pieces of lumber to build a fort or a tree house, you’ll be almost as enamored with our guest this week as Michelle is. Pete Nelson is the proud and ecstatic patriarch of a treetop dwelling empire of craftsmen and family members who have built over 300 tree houses; and they’re not stopping there! In fact we’re pretty sure that he doesn’t even seem to know the meaning of the word...

#118 The True How-To-Duo ~ with Kiva and Jake

11/3/2017

If you’re thinking to yourself “Where are all the How-To-Build-A-Tiny-House videos on YouTube!?” Or, on a grander scale, wondering how you’ll conquer the learning curve of building your own; wonder no more! While this week’s interview won’t fill your dying need of know how to secure your subfloor to your trailer, after hearing our guests story you’ll have a great place to start! You see, Kiva and Jake started right where you are; Square One. And they’re still building, and filming, and...

#117 The Beginning of Infinity ~ with Kirsten Dirksen

11/3/2017
More
If you’re a fan of small spaces, and YouTube, our guest this week likely requires no introduction. After over 800 videos, her success and advocacy certainly speaks for itself. If you’re a fan of women who do it all, creatively, you’ll want to tune in his week to hear Kirsten Dirksen talk about her favorite pastime of making videos, and the opportunities that her semi-nomadic lifestyle brings. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDsElQQt_gCZ9LgnW-7v-cQ

#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

10/5/2017
More
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

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

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...

#108 Peace Pods, Love, Design, and Harmony - with Vivian Dantche

9/19/2017

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...

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

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...
