If you're debating living in a tiny home, this video might tip the scale in one direction.

Downsizing into a micro-house has been a trendy real estate move in recent months, but this week's episode of "Portlandia" hilariously illustrates that the tiny-house movement might be a better concept than reality.

In the skit, Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen show off their "very, very efficient" home, which features a bathroom that doubles as a home office and a TV room that not-so-conveniently has a bathtub. Armisen's character even serves a dual purpose as he lets his back serve as a cutting board.

"Everything is thought out," Armisen's character says. "No waste of space anywhere." Except that the two are constantly stumbling over one another.

"You're always breathing down the back of my neck," Brownstein complains to Armisen. "I can feel your hot breath on me all the time."Maybe we'll wait on buying our own tiny home.
