The Fairytale House Shaped Like A Shoe

26076 ratings | 1384177 views
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe. That's how the story goes, but this tiny house is no fairytale. Constructed from ferrocement, this spectacular home has been crafted as a whimsical yet functional retreat space which is shaped like a boot. Support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/livingbig The home is constructed as part of Jester House, a cafe and gardens which is located near Motueka, New Zealand. There, the owners have transformed 5 aces of land into a retreat filled with beautiful gardens and creative tiny homes.

Please keep making this kind of videos. If there are no tiny houses left to cover, please just talk about houses. I don't want to suffer from withdrawal symptoms.

There once was a woman who lived in a shoe Her life tormented with nothing to do That over the years she would learn to hide Her every emotion taken in stride To run from feelings she knew were deep Would leave her alone in bitter defeat For there once was a woman who lived in a shoe Her life tormented by you.

"Important to have a big bathroom" Best Line EVER! thank you for saying that. A lot of these tiny and custom homes think it's all about the cooking until your forced to live with a loved one who works from home LOL like sometimes you just can't go outside and bathroom is more than just for #1 & #2 LOL. ...That and a good bed space you can kneel or even stand in is also useful to have in any small home :)

Old Mother Hubbard's house. "Old Mother Hubbard lived in a shoe, she had so many children she didn't know what to do." So terrifying, I vowed to not have kids.

The only thing about the second tiny home up on the hill is that it would suck to have to walk up and down said hill each day since it's walking access only.

These houses in the bushes and secluded areas, isn't there a danger of snakes?
Tagi Doll (1 month ago)
If NZ is anythinglike Australia, there is danger of snakes in the suburbs. No rural living needed for that privilege.

Awesome place and, as a person who grew up on fairy tales and became an English major, what an unearthly find. Magical. I want to go and spend a weekend!
Amestrian (1 month ago)
So my question is for the archetects out there: if you were to make a tiny home via Geodome home out of aircrete, would that stand up against the cold snow-filled winters? that's what's running through my head while watching these tiny homes too. They look fantastic in the spring/summer/fall or whenever this is filmed but would it stand the test of winter?
