In this video we’re checking out The Nest: a beautiful minimalist tiny house that’s 23 feet long and 10 feet wide. At 230 square feet, it was designed for 1 or 2 people to live in, and what’s really unique about it is that it can easily be attached and detached from a trailer which offers several advantages over a traditional tiny house on wheels: it means you don't have to build around wheel wells, it saves money because the foundation system is a third of the cost of a trailer, and it makes the tiny house more durable because the trailer is the part that could rust or need replacing before the other building materials do.
One of the goals with this tiny house was to make it feel open and spacious, so there is no loft or bedroom in this house, instead they have a large couch that doubles as a bed, and can be extended into a Queen-size bed if two people live here. The couch has storage for the bedding inside it, so the bed can be quickly made up and put away each day.
It has a surprising amount of storage with the full sized closet and lots of kitchen cabinets and drawers. It also has a flex space that could be a desk or a dining table, and a very spacious bathroom at the back.
The home is heated with an in-floor heating system, and it has a ceiling fan and plenty of windows to circulate air. There is also room to add a ductless mini split for A/C if someone wanted to add that in.

And here is another beautiful True North Tiny Homes model that we filmed in 2019:
The Nest was designed as a prototype for a non-profit called Creating Roots, that aims to provide housing for foster youth who are aging out of the system. You can find out more about this important initiative here:

To bad they could not of put the kitchen where desk is, so the tv could then be directly across from the couch.

I love the floor heating! I live in South Korea now, and floor heating is actually the norm (it's called "ondol"). It's great...warms the entire living space evenly. I wish it were standard in the West!

Tiny houses are lame. RV trailer living made to look like a house. Please stop calling it a house, you don't own the land, so your pretty much a nomadic gypsy in a fancy trailer.

I looked on their costs less than $100k. With $20k and a piece of land I can build something better than that and it wouldn't cost me "less than $100k. What a joke!!!

7:05 Propane is nice, but if you're going for all electric, an in-line UV filter would do the trick.

Ingenious jacking system. Would love to learn more about the structural engineering of the floor framing for the house. Can't wait to see people riff on this idea. It's a game changer! Thank you

If they start with sterile, deionized water in the floor heating circuit, how would bacteria start to grow? Even if a thermophile got in, there's nothing for them to proliferate on if it's a closed circuit?

I’ve spent many hours watching Tiny Home tours, and this by far is the best one I’ve seen. Good size kitchen, love the bed/living room, bathroom is a great size, love the closet space and washer/dryer combo placement, the windows, and that tv. Only thing, I’d put an AC in there, but other than that, this tiny home is perfect. Also, that floor heating? Truly makes it better.

I feel like with some nipping and tucking with the size of the kitchen, closet, bathroom, and desk areas, you could have dedicated living/bedroom spaces.

Overall, I love it. I also recommend a few practical changes: 1) Raise the frig up onto a custom cabinet/drawer to prevent stooping over to retrieve items. 2) A home should always have a second exit door.......... .....and the bathroom is a great location for this. Helpful if you come home with muddy boots or a muddy pet dog that you need to shower off right away. ....and a second exit/entrance is great in case something prevents you from using the front door, like a swarm of bugs or the wind pounding rain into the other door (happened to me). 3) Since floor heating takes a long time to heat a space and people sometimes need to warm up quickly after getting wet in the rain or chilled to the bone, the bathroom could be used by warming it up quickly with a portable heater. So I recommend: Find a way for the bathroom door to seal well when closed, and add a shelf in the bathroom for a small portable heater and a way to secure the heater in place (so it can't accidentally fall into the sink, for instance).

I think that door placement steals a lot of space. Putting the desk or the kitchen where that large window is and putting the door somewhere on the side between the bathroom and the awning window would have saved so much space and expanded that area for use where the door is. An awning window near the ceiling where that door is would have solved the cross ventilation problem.

The True North website seems to have some problems. At least 2 of the videos don't work. It doesn't list where they are located. The copyright date is 2 years ago. I assume they are still in business since this is a more recent video. I LOVE their trailer and would like that in the states. I wonder if that's possible.

As a older person with disabilities a Murphy bed would be fab . Plus you don't have to bend over and be worn out making the bed daily. Plus the new Murphy's have shelfs and other handy attachments that foldover without having to be removed. Plus better quality mattress etc. Plus im sure that there are fosters with disabilities. And i know my murphy bed felt like a nest. Thanks for all you do for foster.

So tiny homes on wheels are not allowable in Ontario to live in? Thank you for answering that. I would love to have a tiny house on wheels with TO as my home base but never saw any in the city. Do you know if there are any legislations that are being proposed to change that?
