Tiny House, Big Living Now Casting on HGTV

The following is an Announcement from Orion Entertainment

Tiny House, Big Living, a new HGTV series, is looking for couples, families and singles (w/sidekicks) who are leaving behind their conventional lives to build and live in a tiny house! We are seeking people who are just beginning or have recently begun building their tiny house project.

The series is looking for enthusiastic, fun-loving folks who are open to sharing their downsizing adventure with HGTV and their audience!

We will spotlight builders who are customizing their homes to fit their unique personalities–from custom furniture to custom layouts–making the most of downsizing their living space! We are looking for tiny homes that stand out! Are you using all salvaged materials? Are you hiring a professional architect or designing as you go?

Whether you’re building a tiny house to nuke the mortgage, travel the country or minimize your carbon footprint, however you (and your tiny house) roll….we’d love to hear from you! Production begins late winter/early spring of 2015.

Television Show Design Team to Finish Frontier Fortress in One Week

The following is a guest post from Jamie.

Major cable network TV show about tiny houses has just secured a partnership with Frontier Fortress, a pre-fab build company that has created an environmentally friendly home that has a 10’x12′ footprint with a 6’x14′ “mezzanine” lofted area and 3’x10′ deck on the second level. According to the builder, it is an ideal home for an individual or couple.

The estimated cost of this home is $25k. The house would be shipped to the buyer’s location and assembled by the builders. Our design team would take care of all of the finishing, both internal and external, in one week’s time, all of which would be documented by cameras for our show. Again, we should note that all of the finishing on the house will be well beyond the cost of the home itself and will significantly add to the value of the home. The homeowner will end up with a unique, fully functional, and extremely impressive tiny house.

If interested in building the home and would like to document the process on a major cable network, please email tinyhousetvshow@gmail.com for more information!
