NEW YORK – FYI Network's new series, Tiny House Nation, challenges woodworkers to get maximum yield - not just from materials, but from square footage as well.
A growing movement in modern home construction, tiny houses pair upscale and innovative design with minimalist living. In order to utilize every square inch of the micro-spaces, builders have integrated multi-functional cabinetry designs such as stow-away beds in custom cabinet systems.
"From high price to low cost, this is not your normal design show, but one that proves size doesn't always matter - it's creativity that counts," says Jana Bennett, president of FYI Network.
In each installment, tiny house builders John Weisbarth and Zach Giffin will work with a family to design and construct a new mini-home. While traveling across the country, the team will look into the creative design behind elaborate tiny houses including micro-apartments in Manhattan and tiny row homes in Savannah, GA.
The show arrives as part of the inital lineup for A+E Networks' new FYI Network, which aims to offer "thought-provoking and inspirational lifestyle content" with programs such as "Renovation Row," which places two remodeling teams in competition to renovate identical homes in urban spaces.
