It’s safe to say we’ve seen it all—container van homes, sprawling multi-storey havens, and teeny-tiny condo units that push the envelope when it comes to design, innovation, and creativity. This weekend, you can see and walk inside a 15sqm tiny home, discover a thing or two about how you can make a small space work, and the best part? You also have the chance to meet and learn from the hosts of the hit (and well-loved!) show, Tiny House Nation.

An extension of Manila’s biggest entertainment convention, HISTORY Con 2017, FYI’s first Home & Living Fair brings together chefs, creators, and innovators to highlight creativity, arts and crafts, and how you can fuel your passion for the things you love.

One of the event's highlights is the 15sqm tiny home designed and built by AHPT + Architects in partnership with Builtable and PalmEco. Visitors will surely feel inspired the moment they step into the home.


A sofa defines the living area, while  ample space is dedicated to a compact kitchen, a dining nook that can double as a workspace, and enough storage for belongings. Wondering if there is a bedroom? A rolling ladder leads to a loft-type sleeping space, with the bathroom found beneath it.

If you’ve always loved the magic of small homes, Tiny House Nation’s John Weisbarth and renovation  expert Zack Giffin will also be having talks on home renovation, décor, and clever home solutions

A hit show with hour-long episodes, Tiny House Nation follows John and Zack across America as they help homeowners design and construct their mini dream homes.

Attendees will be in for a jampacked experience as there will also be activities and tutorials that will focus on food, travel, and other interests. Tickets can be purchased at the venue, at SM Ticket outlets, and through Tickets to History Con 2017 is inclusive of admission to FYI Home & Living Fair. Both events are happening until tomorrow, August 13 at the World Trade Center.
