Great concept marred by a repeating script
6 September 2019 | by MyrhialSee all my reviews

I love the idea of tiny houses as a minimalist solution to having a home that you own yet saving money for other important things. I'm actually a fan of minimalism as a whole, and people like Marie Kondo who in their own way teach us about what matters in life and how we can find out what that is. So it's nice to see two experts host a show about this, more so as I get a kick out of the space saving solutions they come up with.

Where the show falls short for me however is the customization of the build. They seem to want to please the owners to a fault, and there is always a big hidden drama throwing a spanner in the works. Some of it is really only going to work out for a while, and while you can certainly redesign a space, it baffles me and after a while just felt it was an obligatory part of the episode script. There's a lot that plays on emotions too, like how cruel and inhumane it would be to fail these poor new people, and there the interactions start to feel fake. Not to mention every build is on some sort of ticking clock. Sure, there's often an urgency but life or death and then everything magically aligning? I'd have rather seen a realer show that highlights actual problems and how to overcome them or how to make do when stuff goes wrong. I'd also be interested in a season that goes back and revisits people, or shows established tiny home dwellers, where they talk about the good and bad and how things have evolved over time. Now there is just a little segment at the end but the timeframe is so short, everyone is still essentially in the honeymoon period.
