tiny house nation: tv about tinies

When there’s sufficient tiny house interest for a television series, something is shifting culturally. Tiny House Nation promises to feature a person or family taking the leap into tiny house living, on every show.

The series premieres on Wednesday, July 9th at 10E/11P, as part of an A&E channel launch called fyi. Like us, you’ll have to watch it live or on demand.

John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin will serve as hosts for the show. We already know Zack and his girlfriend Molly, who tow their tiny house to Western skiing destinations. Zack’s building and living experience should be a great asset.

We are unashamedly excited to see a pure, 100-percent tiny house series emerge on the scene. For everyone thinking about getting his/her own tiny on wheels or land, let’s hope this TV show fulfills its promises to share true stories and homes.

7/17/14 Update: Tiny House Nation episodes may be watched free and online, including “172 Sq. Ft. Dream Castle” (view) and “River Escape” (view).
