Living Big in a Tiny House is a YouTube show which documents the lives of people around the world who live in unique and interesting small homes. The show explores all kinds of downsized living, including tiny houses on wheels, micro apartments, cabins, tree-houses, earth homes, shipping container homes, busses, vans and everything in between.

With weekly episodes, it delves into the lives of people who are choosing to live an alternative lifestyle in unconventional architecture.


The show was started late in 2013 by Bryce Langston and has since grown to be one of New Zealand’s largest YouTube channels, with 2 million subscribers and well over 220 million views across the channel. Since then, Living Big in a Tiny House has gone international, with a huge following in North America and Europe.

Denver-based firefighter Regan Foster used to spend his days putting out fires, but while recovering from a work-related injury, Foster decided to try his hand at building his dream home.

The results are breathtaking.

Using his own designs, Foster converted nine repurposed shipping containers into a massive 3,840-square-foot home with sophistication that rivals that of any professional architect’s work.
