  1. Hello!
    I am a nurse who works at a non profit primary care clinic serving mostly Hispanic immigrant workers.
    I am 28 years old and live in Portland, Or.
    In my spare time I like to play indoor soccer and go to craft camp.

    I am looking to build a tiny house in this tiny city.

    Are you still taking casting calls?

    Thanks!

      1. Hi..I am a single 53 yr old woman, and I suffer from a disease named Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (RSDS)..I am losing my ability to walk. I currently am in a wheelchair 90% of the time. I work from home, and have 2 dogs…one is a mere 15-17lbs…the other is a Greatdanoodle (1/2 Great Dane and 1/2 Standard Poodle) a mere 105 lbs. I need a tiny home that will allow me to continue to live independently. I want a 450 sq ft tiny home that will be TOTALLY wheelchair functional!!! Bath, Kitchen, Office, and one thing I do NOT need is a bedroom! I am not able to sleep in a bed anymore due to my health..I have slept in a recliner for the last 3 yrs.! I was a Personal Chef for years of my life, but have not been able to cook for a year because I just can’t work in the kitchen as I need to. I must have wet bath..that will allow me to take a bath safely alone, and a safe shower. I also want to make sure that I can live 100% off grid! I want a deck that will allow me to be with my dogs outside, and also sit by a fireplace in the Fall and Winter!! I have always loved small spaces..I cannot stand waste…I am a true green lover… I do not want to lose my independence…and I do not want to live off the government on disability…and I require a small amount of most everything to be happy!! I have spent years researching off grid living, and tiny home living! I have spent a long time trying to just survive…but I have decided that I WANT TO LIVE AGAIN!!! I WANT TO LIVE BIG, IN A TINY HOME! Can you guys PLEASE HELP ME??? How awesome it would be to provide disabled people in chairs to continue to live independently!!!

    2. A tiny house cost about one fourth the cost of a 1000 ft. house or less, because you can save money by living off the grid. Go to your bank and apply for a house loan for the amount you can afford. You might be surprised to find that you qualify for a house loan that you can afford. I suffered deeply because I couldn’t find a house in the price range that my bank qualified me for, but it’s the absolutely perfect amount for a tiny house. Best of luck in getting your tiny house.

  11. Hello my husband David and I are interested in building a “Green”, semi off-grid tiny home of about 400 – 500 square feet in the Finger Lakes region of Central New York State. Our family currently resides in Maryland but we own 2 acres of property near Senema Lake NYS. Our goal is to build a tiny home that would support us throughout our retirement years. We wish to move to the tiny home in about 9 years as our primary residence, until then we would hope to go to our tiny home on long weekends and summer holidays with our teenage twin boys.

  12. Hello, I’m 35. I need a handicapp house that’s kinda tiny. I’m in a wheelchair usually and I have 2 kids, son is 11 and daughter is 10. Could it be possible to help us?

    1. Hi Michelle, The tiniest homes in terms of a small footprint generally have a loft area, narrow passageways, and aren’t entirely accessibility. To make homes accessible, it’s necessary to put everything on the same level, and have wider passageways. So, this makes the home slightly bigger. However, it’s still possible to have a smaller home, and save money that way. You’ll want to work with a local builder.

  13. Late to the tiny house movement we bought a tiny house for my 2 kids and myself a single mom small business owner in the crazy expensive market that is Silicon Valley. We are wanting and working to modify our triple listing home of 312 sqft, 515 sqft, 732 sqft depending on the source to be more efficient than the 1925 version. Just happy to have a yard and gardens and great schools in a nutty gentrified area. Trying to keep them both grounded with time in nature and with family, reading, and lots of volunteer work with Kiwanis, and MVPAL. Etc.

  14. Ever since I watched Tiny House Nation (I still watch every episode) and was able to look inside a tiny house I knew that a tiny house was for me. A tiny house is perfect for my daughter and me. I can’t believe some of the inventions Zack and the rest of the genius team has created for the tiny houses they have built. Now I’m spoiled and don’t want anyone else to build my tiny house. I was approved for $100,000 for a house. It’s impossible to find a house in that price range here in Salt Lake City, UT, but it’s a lot of money for a tiny house. A tiny house has many more pluses than a large house. First it takes less to heat and cool especially if you have solar panels. Second its smaller so it takes less time to clean and easier to keep clean. Living off the grid means that you are also helping the environment. I could go on and on with all of the pluses. As a retired nurse and now a senior citizen a tiny house is perfect for my daughter and me, just as long as the builders add hand rails to the stairs leading up to the front porch (its a senior thing).

  15. My name.is Miko I am 46 and I live in Louisiana. I have taking care of my mother at the age of 11. I’ve raised 3 kids alone. And taken care of my parents and grandparents that are no longer with me

I really need yall to help me to finally have a home that I own. I’ve give to everyone all these years and I’m finally ready. I’ts just me.and my 2 very small dogs 20 thousand is my savings. But I’m a simple girl I don’t need much. But I do run a janitorial business out of my home ..PLEASE HELP ME . I’m ready ASAP and I love Zach ideas and John. PLEASE!

  16. Hi my name is karen don’t have a lot of money but if you’ll ever won’t to build free home in gandpaire tx. I would l Love a tiny Home watch you’ll all the and dream about my own tiny. Home

  17. Do you guys also build houses in Australia? Its really important because I’m thinking about have a tiny house there.

  18. I want to build a tinyhouse, and plan on doing so. I saw this ad, but the date to enter was Oct.2014 it’s almost 2017……..I thought this was new cast calling.

  19. I am interested in the tiny house movement bc I am a single Mom of five children and I live in an apartment in NYC that has 100% mold with five children, one if which is special needs. I have no money saved as I live from month to month on a very tight and limited income. I would love to explore the idea of living tiny and hopefully applying for any financial aid in purchasing land to sustainly live in a tiny house and perhaps be able to assist in others trying to live in a tiny house community. It is my dream to afford a tiny house and land, utilize sustainable and eco friendly measures, as well as to live off the land off grid, in order to propel the tiny house nation to important and feasible conversations within our government to open dialogue regarding this wonderful movement that perhaps would lead to laws and regulations for the tiny house movement in our communities, especially in big cities, like NY. I am hoping to get funding for this cause and to build my tiny home for six. I have sought and continue to seek more information regarding the tiny house movement and I pray to move my children and I from any dwelling not suitable for the sake of my children’s health! Please share and feel free to open this dialogue positively in the hopes of reaching a positive plateau regarding the tiny house nation and others seeking to provide a better place to discuss this and other options. Thank you for this opportunity.

  20. Is there still a possibility of having a tiny home built by the tiny/house tiny nations crew? We live in Phoenix Arizona and want to retire in Oracle Arizona on a mountaintop and love the homes that we have seen on your tiny house nation programs

  21. I have a EXCELLENT idea for a tiny house. This idea has to do with the placement of sleeping areas. Please contact me. I would love to share this idea with Zach seeing that he is the only one that I have watched that has the mechanical eptitude to make it work. Thank you for your consideration. I think a good idea also is to have a segment on the show where they take a letter from a viewer or a Question and answer from Zach. He is the true star of the show.

    1. That sound great…I have a family of six…My five kids and I. It would be amazing to see how Zach would configure each of us in a separate bed and how much space would be needed or utilized comfortably in a movable trailer… I truly love this show!
