One thing you will take away from this series is definitely to be brave with your own interior design by showcasing your character and personality. The houses featured on the show are perhaps ordinary from the outside, yet extraordinary inside, from circus themed interiors to a sci-fi museum this show has it all.
- Tiny House Nation
If you have been keeping up with the latest property and interior design trends you will no doubt be aware of the rise in popularity of Tiny Houses. The series follows hosts John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin as they travel around America to explore small homes and help the residents transform their small spaces into something quite extraordinary.
