#TinyHouseNation Seeks Those Planning to Build

FYI’S NEW HIT SHOW, TINY HOUSE NATION, SEEKS PEOPLE WHO ARE BUILDING OR PLANNING TO BUILD A TINY HOUSE 

Tiny House Nation,” the hit new show currently airing on FYI (an A+E-owned network), is seeking tiny house-obsessed people who are building or planning to build a tiny house of their own between July – October 2014. Participants will be paired with an expert team of builders and designers who specialize in one-of-a-kind and fully functional design features that maximize small spaces. Each design will also suit the unique needs of each client while significantly increasing the value of the property.

Starting immediately, we are seeking people who are building or planning to build any type of tiny houses and will be transitioning into the tiny house lifestyle for the first time (house types include cabins, cottages, mobile homes, floating homes, container conversion homes, vacation homes, etc.). We are especially interested in anyone who has made progress in any of these departments: blueprints, foundations, zoning, building permits, completed well/septic systems and/or electrical wiring.  *** Please note, all applicants should have an allotted, available budget and should be planning their build/move-in within the next several months (July – October 2014).

Interested individuals, couples and families should be located in the US and have specific ideas and plans in place as it relates to their purchase and/or build of their home. For inquiries or to apply, email the following information to casting@loudtelevision.com: name, location, renovation budget, information on who lives with you, why you want to live in a tiny home, and what you would like your space to look like. Additionally, please include photos of who lives in your home as well as contact information.

Produced by Loud Television, “Tiny House Nation”  features renovation experts, John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin, as they travel across America to profile ingenious, small spaces and the inventive people who live in them, as well as help new families design and construct their own mini-dream home in a space no larger than 500 square feet. From an urban micro-apartment to a caboose car-turned-home to a micro-sized house on wheels for road tripping, this series celebrates the exploding movement of tiny homes. From the pricey to the budget-friendly, “Tiny House Nation” is not a typical design show, but one that proves size doesn’t always matter – it’s creativity that counts.
