  • away visiting his parents this time i was joined by my sister

  • ariel as you know this summer we've been making an effort

  • to travel locally and get to know our own backyard

  • so for this week's getaway we rented a tiny cabin in the woods in glen huron

  • about an hour and 40 minutes north of toronto

  • but even more exciting than that is the fact that ariel and i

  • finally got to meet our nephew there might be tears because he really is the

  • most beautiful baby and i've never seen anything

  • so tiny and perfect now let's roll the footage

  • well hello guys we are here's my sister hello again

  • ariel um today we are doing a tiny house day

  • in glen huron and i've been like falling asleep i'm supposed to be

  • navigating and i've been kind of like dozing off

  • and then it's our turn we're just sleeping we did

  • i mean you'll go the wrong way but we ended up in farmland so we've seen

  • sheep and cows and it's really pretty and really green so maybe there's a

  • reason why we missed it yeah i know it was it was good i'm

  • almost winter of that hill

  • it's not so bad going down it's gonna be coming up

  • so this whole time we have been on a quest

  • to find a tim hortons we've missed a total of three

  • two of them were on the wrong side of the road and we realized way too late

  • and the other one well i fell asleep and took us on the floor you even

  • haven't done more in scientific country style

  • but then i saw it on my phone it's like oh there it goes

  • um but anyways i i am awake now i'm alert

  • i've napped enough i've had chips i've had chocolate

  • but now we have a storm brewing like it's

  • getting real dark real quick so i just hope we make it there before

  • it starts pouring rain like we wanted to go hiking today i have

  • a feeling we might be indoors i don't know hopefully they have board

  • games or we're gonna change ourselves somehow

  • all right guys so we have made it to the tiny home

  • welcome welcome no sam behind the camera today

  • so i'll be showing you around let's see what we can do together

  • so first things first here's my sister eating chocolate

  • hiding forwarding to make a mess hiding i've told her you can't make it messy

  • until i film the tour um so yeah basically this is

  • the entrance to the tiny home and first things first you have

  • a mini living area very canadian plaid pattern feeling the vibes

  • and yeah we've got some cute polar bears some cute polar bears up here

  • polar bears polar bears um some books so yeah this is kind of like our

  • little reading nook i suppose or just hang out

  • area and then over here that brings us to the

  • kitchen it's a small kitchen but it looks very

  • functional so basically here we've got our sink

  • it's covered right now with what you can use as a chopping

  • board we have hot and cold water here because there is a water heater that i

  • still need to plug in and turn on and then over here they left us some tea

  • it looks like yeah different teas we have some sugar

  • hand sanitizer some dish towels we have some cooking

  • utensils what else oh up here on this little

  • shelf we have all of our plates our mugs we have wine

  • glasses cutlery coffee maker so we are kind of

  • set in the cooking department what else oh

  • we have a mini fridge

  • and what else a little toaster oven we actually did

  • all of our meal prep while we were still at home because we weren't sure what the

  • situation was going to be like we also have a like a barbecue outside

  • so you can grill or cook stuff up over there but yeah

  • we're going to be having tacos and it's all

  • ready made so it's super easy and what else down here

  • okay this is kind of like a little cozy area

  • i'm going to call it the dining room it looks like a dining room

  • so we have a cute little bench little table in front of us a nice

  • window that looks into the forest and honestly this could

  • double as like a little work space or a little office

  • very cozy we have some cushions here some pillows

  • they left us some kind of puzzle so yeah this

  • is where we'll be eating our meals and then the only other thing that we

  • have downstairs is the bathroom so let me take you in

  • there this is actually the fanciest bathroom we've had at any

  • of our tiny house days we have a compost toilet and we also

  • have the luxury of a shower there we are

  • first time we've ever had a shower it's usually just been

  • compost toilets and we bring some some wet wipes to like

  • freshen up so really we do need arms in there i know um

  • so yeah this time we're only staying one night so i don't think we really need

  • need a shower but hey if you wanted one it's there

  • oh we also have a tv right over here just across from the couch

  • and they left us a huge movie selection if you can see that we've got i don't

  • know i'd say maybe like 40 50 different movies to choose from so

  • maybe we'll pick one out for this evening and

  • then the only thing left to show you is the

  • bedroom so we have to climb up to the loft so

  • let's do that okay so we have made it to the bedroom we are

  • a little backlit but basically this is the view we've got it looks like

  • a christmas tree farm out there to be honest

  • ariel is getting stuff from the car we forgot all of our drinking water

  • looks like she's being attacked by mosquitoes fight those mosquitoes

  • fight them off

  • oh my gosh that's too funny the mosquitoes have been horrible relentless

  • um and she's running back in also before i forget if you watched our last tiny

  • house video glasses usa is extending a 65

  • discount off of their frames so if you need some new specs

  • you can check that out we've got a link in the description for you

  • there we go she was attacked she came back

  • so quick um but yeah basically this is the bedroom area i think you can sit

  • upright in between the beams you can sit upright

  • in between the beams if you're not too too tall

  • so it's surprisingly comfortable like when i was booking this place i thought

  • maybe we wouldn't be able to really sit that we would just be kind of crawling

  • but this definitely makes it more comfortable for like reading or watching

  • movies just hanging out up here and what else

  • bed looks comfy we have lots of pillows and cushions and they have these cute

  • little stars twinkly lights star lights

  • whatever you want to call them and yeah this is the view from up top

  • voila this is the tiny home sister getaway

  • she says yeah i think that's everything i wanted to show you on the inside

  • next up i'm gonna put on some long pants a long sleeve and i'll show you the deck

  • area i need to guard myself from the mosquitoes because

  • i feel like bug spray doesn't work well enough

  • so let's go okay guys now we go outside i have prepared myself

  • as much as possible this is the outfit can you see it pajamas socks

  • oh there we go okay so yeah let's tour the exterior first of all our little

  • tiny house is right at the start of a trail so that

  • we can go hiking in the morning or maybe even

  • later this afternoon but we want to eat first

  • so that's really cool hiking trail right at our doorstep

  • also i love that they have so many little bird houses

  • in varying sizes and varying colors it's just very bright and cheerful like

  • look here we have another one a blue one and

  • they have the christmas lights up so yeah it just feels really really

  • festive but yeah let me show you around

  • basically we have this little deck area for outdoor dining when it's

  • not raining so there's a table there for four people

  • and then another little table down there for two

  • we have a barbecue if you wanted to grill some burgers

  • hot dogs you know your standard camp food what's this

  • it says welcome friends i wonder if it's bird food

  • here

  • oh i think that's for people who smoke it's a bucket with sand

  • yeah they also have christmas ornaments on the trees

  • so this is really cool i like the outdoor area they've made it a very

  • inviting place where you want to linger and hang out

  • and then we have our outhouse we actually have

  • two toilets at our disposal here they told us

  • they would prefer if we used the outhouse but for emergencies especially

  • in the middle of the night we have a toilet inside of the tiny home

  • that we can also use it's a compost toilet

  • so we are now in the kitchen prepping our dinner tacos thankfully we

  • pre-cooked the meat back at home because it turns out we don't actually

  • have a stove and that's my bad for not reading the description thoroughly

  • but what we do have is a toaster oven so we've put our meat in there we're

  • just heating it up now and we've already prepped everything

  • else so the guacamole has been made it's looking good

  • we have our taco shells our tortillas so we're all set in that regard oh and

  • cherries for dessert

  • my first bite of our chicken tacos here and i'm honestly pretty impressed

  • first i'm having ground chicken as taco filling okay

  • but it turned out pretty tasty i don't think i did too much as always

  • but it could be spicier the salsa it's not the hot one

  • oh nothing just regular we should have brought hot sauce

  • delicious huh ready to go hiking ready to go hiking are you guys ready to

  • go hiking we're ready we're ready trail engines so we might

  • have been overly optimistic about that hike even

  • though we were wearing long pants long sleeves and we covered ourselves in

  • repellent the mosquitoes decided our faces and ears were prime locations for

  • their attack and we only lasted a few minutes before

  • we were sprinting back to the safety of the cabin

  • we opted for a movie night instead and watched night at the museum and alice in

  • wonderland good night good night

  • well guys that is it for tonight we watched

  • two back-to-back movies i fell asleep during the first one

  • ariel fell asleep during the second one i was awake through the second we

  • watched night at the museum and then alice in

  • wonderland and yeah we're gonna get a good night's

  • rest and tomorrow we have an exciting day because my

  • sister and i are gonna go meet our little nephew for

  • the first time newborn nephew so we're really excited

  • um so yeah good night good morning world hello hello sister

  • hello good morning how did you sleep in your first

  • tiny house

  • it wasn't bad it which is their little christmas lights outside are kind

  • of pretty bright and the window had like no current so it

  • was just kind of blinding me i think overall it's possible yeah

  • good experience it was it was fun um i i actually had a good night's sleep i

  • feel like i'm used to this whole tiny house you slept like a baby i slept

  • like a baby i was like i was twitching and

  • kicking and snoring and i got okay i don't think i was snoring

  • but yeah it rained really hard early in the morning i think it must have been

  • like four or five when we had this huge torrential

  • downpour that actually woke me up just like the

  • rain hitting the roof and it was coming down so hard i was

  • like oh my gosh car please don't get stuck in the mud um

  • but yeah we're all good as you saw yesterday we couldn't

  • handle the trail the hiking trail we really wanted to do a bit of hiking but

  • i just keep forgetting like during the summer months in ontario a

  • lot of mosquitoes impossible like this would be a

  • beautiful place oh did it get in no it's outside

  • where this would be a beautiful place i would say an autumn

  • early autumn winter or like yeah or mid-autumn when like the foliage is

  • changing because it has a nice deck area so like you can hang out outside and

  • then also once the temperatures begin to drop

  • the mosquitoes aren't attacking you so you can go for long walks

  • enjoy the crisp air so that's when i would suggest visiting but yeah we

  • didn't get to hike which is kind of sad to me we made it for like a minute and a

  • half two minutes like no we're going back we're going

  • back turn around so there's lots of hiking to be done here it's just

  • not the right time of year or like you need to like bathe yourself in bug spray

  • like we wore bug spray and it was still bad um so yeah we're saying goodbye to

  • the tiny home and now we're going to drive to my

  • sister's house in innisfil it's about a one hour drive

  • from here but tim horton's on the way we need our

  • coffee

  • okay we did our timmy's run for all the non-canadians i wonder if

  • you can see it over my shoulders tim hortons is right over there it's

  • basically a coffee chain like dunkin donuts or

  • well mcdonald's not really a coffee chain but they do good coffee

  • um so basically i got the homestyle biscuit breakfast biscuit i forget what

  • it's called but it's a nice greasy biscuit with an

  • omelette it has bacon it has cheddar cheese it's

  • very tasty i also got a hash brown that i've already bitten

  • into i'll show you my sister's this one is still intact we've got that

  • and of course timmy's coffee to wake us up to start the day i got the double

  • double so that's just like two milks two sugars

  • and yeah we are all set it's actually still too

  • early to get to my sister's house because she has to go grocery shopping

  • and she won't be home for a while so we're just hanging out in a parking lot

  • in stayner having our breakfast and then we'll continue driving it's

  • going to be an hour yeah and slowly waking up

  • but it's a nice overcast day it's not raining so it's actually kind of nice
