Tiny House Roadshow

THROUGH THURSDAY.

>> LOOKS GREAT, CHUCK.

THANK YOU.

>> HOW SMALL IS TOO SMALL WHEN IT COMES TO A HOUSE.

COULD YOU FIT INTO A COUPLE HUNDRED FEET COMFORTABLY? >> WE'LL SEE.

SOME OF THESE ARE SMALLER THAN A NEW YORK CITY APARTMENT.

CARLOS, IF YOU'VE EVER WANTED TO CHECK THESE OUT, THIS IS YOUR TIME TO DO SO.

CARLOS? >> IT'S THE TINY HOUSE ROAD SHOW.

WE'RE HERE WITH SCOTT AND BRANDON.

YOU'RE FROM MICRO VILLAS.

WHEN YOU DRIVE THIS AMAZING LITTLE HOME DOWN THE STREET, WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE? >> IT'S CRAZY.

WE SEE CELL PHONES COMING OUT AND TAKING PICTURES.

>> THESE HOUSES ARE ALL THE RAGE.

I WANT TO TAKE YOU OVER HERE.

THAT ONE IS 235 SQUARE FEET.

235 SQUARE FEET.

$60,000, BUT THE GREAT NEWS IS THEY'RE MADE SO WELL THAT INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE INSURING THEM LIKE HOUSES.

YOU CAN ACTUALLY FINANCE THEM LIKE HOUSES.

YOU CAN SEE THEY HAVE DIFFERENT DESIGNS.

THIS IS A MODERN DESIGN WITH LITTLE DIGS.

THEIR MOTTO IS BUY SMALL, LIVE LARGE.

AND YOU HAVE THIS ONE HERE.

TINY BY DESIGN.

THIS IS A 270 SQUARE FOOT HOME THAT COSTS YOU $49,000.

SO IT'S BASICALLY LIKE A CAR.

LET'S WALK ON IN.

I WILL GIVE YOU A TOUR OF THIS PLACE HERE.

LOOK.

WE HAVE DALE GEIST FROM TINY BY DESIGN IS HERE AS WELL.

I DON'T KNOW WHY DALE IS WEARING SHORTS, BUT IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS WHERE IT'S A LITTLE CHILLY.

THIS IS GREAT, DALE.

YOU DESIGN THESE HOMES.

IT'S THE LITTLE KNICKKNACKS THAT MAKE IT SO AMAZING, RIGHT? >> RIGHT.

YOU HAVE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EVERY SQUARE INCH YOU HAVE IN THESE HOMES.

THIS IS A WORKSTATION AND DESK, BUT IT TURNS INTO YOUR DINING ROOM WHEN IT'S TIME FOR DINNER.

>> YOU JUST PULL THAT TABLE OUT.

>> SO THIS IS NOT EVEN A TABLE.

THIS IS SO YOU CAN SIT DOWN.

THAT PULLS DOWN AND YOU CAN HAVE YOUR KIDS, SPOUSE RIGHT OVER HERE.

SO THAT'S THE GREAT THING ABOUT THESE HOMES.

THINGS KIND OF PULL OUT THAT WAY, AND THEY SHIFT.

I LOVE THIS BACK HERE, BY THE WAY.

YOU HAVE THE CABINET.

IT LOOKS LIKE A CABINET.

ALL OF A SUDDEN IT'S A TV.

YOU'VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR HOW LONG NOW? >>I'VE BEEN BUILDING HOMES FOR THREE YEARS.

WE STARTED THE ROAD SHOW IN APRIL BECAUSE DEMAND HAD GROWN SO HIGH THAT WE WANTED TO TAKE IT ON THE ROAD AND SHOW PEOPLE WHAT THIS MOVEMENT IS ALL ABOUT.

>> YOU GOT INTO THIS.

HOW FAR ARE YOU BOOKED OUT? >> IT'S STARTED AS A HOBBY BUT WE'RE BOOKED THREE YEARS DEEP.

>> THREE YEARS WANTING TO BUY THESE HOMES.

>> AND ALL OF MY CUSTOMERS ARE BABY BOOMERS.

>> PEOPLE SAY THEY WANT TO BE FREE.

>> CORRECT.

THEY WANT TO SIMPLIFY THEIR LIFE AND JUST BE FREE.

THEY'RE DONE WITH THE RAT RACE.

DONE WITH CHASING EVERYTHING.

THEY WANTED TO RELAX AND ENJOY THEMSELVES AND BE FREE.

>> HERE IN INDIANAPOLIS AT THE JEWISH CENTER ALL WEEKEND LONG.

THIS IS THE TINY HOME ROAD SHOW.

JULIA, I THINK WE NEED TO GET A TINY HOME FOR SUNSHINE.

>> THAT WOULD BE COOL.

WE ALL PITCH IN >> I'M THINKING THE BABY BOOMERS DON'T HAVE TEENAGERS RUNNING AROUND THEIR HOUSE.

THERE'S NO WAY.

>> GOOD POINT.

GOOD POINT.

>> ALL RIGHT, CARLOS, THANK YOU.

>> WOW, THAT'S TIGHT.

AS CHUCK MENTION TEED EARLIER, YOU HAVE TO — MENTIONED.
