What is Candid Tiny House?

Candid Tiny House is a multi-platform interview series with people who have built their tiny house on wheels in Australia. These honest interviews are with people who have built a tiny house on a Fred’s Tiny Houses Trailer in Australia after taking a Workshop or Online Course with Fred.

Mine these interviews for tiny house building tips that are grounded in reality and experience. Hear stories of everything that it’s taken to build each tiny house on wheels, including the:

  • financial costs & the savings;
  • things they wish they knew before starting out on their tiny house building journey;
  • injuries & the community support;
  • setbacks & triumphs; and
  • compromises & innovations.

Instead of presenting a shiny tiny house ideal, we take a gritty and realistic look at the enormous feat it takes to build a tiny house on wheels. Each client sets out to make a home that is a successful road vehicle as well as being a comfortable place to live in year-round.

Each episode includes:

  1. Blog article with a photo gallery;
  2. Video tour or short interview; and
  3. In-depth interview on the podcast.

Be inspired by all the people who have walked the path before you.

Season 1 consists of six episodes released every Friday from 24th September to 29th October 2021. All the interviewees are in Australia and we focus exclusively on information that is relevant to Australia.

Shannon Schultz is your host on Candid Tiny House. She talks to people every day about their tiny house projects at Fred’s Tiny Houses and enjoys getting real about tiny houses and everything that is involved in making them and living in them. She picks up the technical stuff from Fred (her husband) and loves catching up with clients to celebrate their journey and their tiny house successes! 🙂
