Tiny House World

Tiny House World logo

FYI’s new original series, “Tiny House World,” celebrates the global trend of extreme downsizing and tiny living. The series joins the network’s break-out franchise hits, “Tiny House Nation” and “Tiny House Hunting.” Sixteen half-hour episodes are set to premiere beginning Saturday, November 21 at 10pm ET.

The first episode of Tiny House World to air in it’s history features Adrian with her niece, Shari, as her client and her daughter, Erica, as Shari’s companion in their search for the perfect tiny apartment in Paris! It’s a family affair not to be missed… [although the Tiny House World series premiered on November 21, they’ve moved our Paris episode to Saturday, December 5th in response to the terrorist attacks in Paris.]

“FYI was the first network to spotlight the tiny living craze and we’re excited to now expand our successful franchise globally,” said Gena McCarthy, Senior Vice President, Programming and Development, FYI. Each episode of “Tiny House World” features a prospective homeowner looking to find the ideal mini-dream home in locations as diverse as Paris, France, Sydney, Australia, and Dublin, Ireland. With three homes to choose from, buyers will find that picking the perfect small space, that best fits their budget and desires, is no easy feat — even in the most exotic and exciting locations.

Small in stature, the homes are often big on ingenuity and design. Still, the challenges of finding the perfect home abroad loom as large as any real estate hunt in the U.S. Viewers will see how the trend of tiny living has taken shape in other areas of the world and learn how different cultures approach design difficulties, space limitations and more.

Vous prendrez bien a piece of appart’
By Nicole Pénicaut Nouvel Observateur Paris Ile-de-France June 5- 11, 2008
(en français)

Acquérir à quatre, huit ou douze un appartement cosy avec vue sur la tour Eiffel, les Américains adorent ça. Propriétaire à Paris un mois par an, so great !

C’est «très chaud». En bonne Américaine, Adrian Leeds traduit : «Hot, hot, hot.» Il y a quelques mois, cette originaire de Louisiane aurait été plus tiède dans son appréciation. Mais depuis que le «New York Times» a décrit Paris comme le nouveau terrain de jeu des adeptes de l’achat groupé d’appartements, c’est devenu tendance. Abondamment citée dans l’article pour ses capacités d’intercession entre vendeurs et acquéreurs, Adrian Leeds aurait littéralement été assaillie de coups de fil. Soixante-dix appels en une journée des quatre coins des Etats-Unis, pour connaître détails et tarifs des «biens immobiliers» à vendre à Paris en fractionnal property, traduisez : en propriété partagée. Entre quatre, six ou douze personnes. Sur l’un des sites internet de cette Américaine installée dans la capitale, quelques photos alléchantes de petits appartements dans le Marais (entre 35 et 45 m2). Ambiance déco, mobilier confortable, cuisine et salle de bains adaptés aux standards de confort américains. Des adresses prestigieuses. Dans les 5e, 6e, 7e arrondissements pour la rive gauche; 4e pour la rive droite et l’île Saint-Louis au milieu. Le temps d’usage et le prix sont bien sûr fonction du nombre de personnes impliquées dans l’acquisition. La qualité et la taille du bien immobilier font le reste : compter 299 000 $ pour être l’un des cinq propriétaires du 117-m2 actuellement en vente rue des Saints-Pères ou 135 000 $ pour partager avec trois autres personnes un 45-m2 dans le Marais. Mais partagée en quatre, six ou douze, la mise de fond est plus digeste. D’autant qu’à tous les futurs propriétaires, on fait miroiter «le même avenir radieux. Le marché immobilier parisien n’est pas prêt de dévisser : à Paris votre investissement est entre de bonnes pierres et en euro fort, s’il vous plaît» : voilà l’antienne…

When Steve Navaro throws open the thick silk drapes framing the large windows in his Paris pied-à-terre, he enjoys a rare luxury in this tightly packed city: a lush garden.

The garden isn’t his alone. Nor, in fact, is the apartment. Mr. Navaro, a lawyer from Denver, shares his two-bedroom apartment in the Marais neighborhood of Paris with several other owners.
