In this episode, Derek “Deek” Diedricksen visits the family behind “Red Barn Tiny Houses”, at the Florida Tiny House Festival. This gambrel “barn” tiny house on wheels features one of the more modern and awe-inspiring array of pendant lighting- a virtual “constellation” of edison bulbs that adorn its ceiling.
“Earthship design is all about experimentation and innovation and that’s exactly the case with this incredible tiny house on wheels. Firefighter Steve was inspired to build a tiny house incorporating Earthship principles after completing a course on Earthship Biotecture design and building in New Mexico.”
It’s possible that this is one of the smallest homes that we have visited on the show so far and yet without doubt it is one of the most spectacular in its design.

If you’re a young family who want to move into a tiny house, this could be the perfect design for you! Built with the modern family in mind, this home is constructed to be completely non-toxic, using natural materials and has been designed to include a separate room for the kids as well as a private home office space.
