S03.E07: 300 Sq.Ft. His 'n Hers House

Recommended Posts

Sorry, but if you're not sure you're ready to share a bed with someone, why would you mesh your finances?
Wonder if they have a buyout plan.
I thought the stairs, and other shelf stairs built, should be lower, and all have the same rise.  And would it kill them to put a bit of a railing along the wall?
And what do all these people do, that they need a desk, and usually have time and money to travel?

This ep highlighted so many of issues about the show, mostly that they keep building the same house over and over and over, and that we're subject to people who suddenly discover that they're moving in 7 days, which just happens to be the production schedule as well. Between "paring down" and composting toilets, this ep just seemed more cynically same-old-same-old than usual.

 

The big twist? That he's a bed hog and she doesn't like getting elbowed, although they have at least one mattress of recreational size.

 

Liked the staircase but that was about it. Everything else seemed exhausting in terms of foldouts. And where are you supposed to put all your work stuff like computers, file folders, paperclips, etc when you have zero storage (except for a few strategic hangers that you reach from your stairs) and need to use that same desk for every other life function?

If you get a chance, look at an episode of Tiny House, Big Living, where someone who hasn't drunk the kool-aid gets a big closet, and livable place.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qK9GmFQVsME

Yikes, this costs money.  Anyway, the woman's name is Jewel Pearson and the show is on HGTV.

I managed to grab a couple of episodes this past Monday but neither one really caught my interest. (And neither one was the episode you recommended.) THN may be stupid and repetitive, but its stupid and repetitive in an entertaining way.

 

I keep fantasizing about a wipe-out / tiny house crossover show, with soon-to-downsize families getting punched into muddy water.

You shouldn't have said this, now I can't stop thinking of crossovers, and I'm sure others are thinking of them too.

I did mention elsewhere that I wanted to see little people get a tiny house.

Now, however, I really want to see Hilary & David visit, and one of the homeowners will want Hilary to add an extra bedroom, bath, and kitchen island.

This could be as much fun as when we new titles for ID shows.
