Last week I made my first site visit to the mountains of North Carolina to start performance testing the #OffGridHomestead. This is an uber-homebuild with LG Squared Architects (now also LG Cubed Builders) and Chris Laumer-Giddens has a lot to show us, even at this rough in stage, with saws running and tractors rumbling around.

Today Corbett talks with Bill Lazar of St. Johns Housing Partnership about how his organization built hundreds of affordable homes in St. Augustine, Florida, that are scientifically superior to the million dollar mansions going up across town. Recorded from the #TinyLab on the Proof Is Possible Tour.
Stephen Rardon, HVAC expert extraordinaire, came to the #TinyLab to talk about home performance, HVAC testing, and being a world-class consultant to homeowner and builder clients alike!

Happy New Year from the Lunsfords and the #TinyLab, after traveling 13k miles through 26 states in 9 months on the Proof Is Possible Tour. Guess what? Washing a tiny house on wheels is exactly like washing a gigantic car!
PSEG Long Island brought the Proof Is Possible Tour's #TinyLab and Green Jobs Training Center's Building Science Training Lab to East Hampton and Montauk, and here's what happened! Video produced by Geir Magnusson at Nice Studios- thanks also to Bill Sullivan, the man who made the whole thing happen!
See what the hottest place on Earth (Death Valley, with the world record 134ºF temperature) does to the world's highest performance tiny house on wheels. See proof that our airtightness, insulation, cooling, and ventilation works even where it's not designed to go.
Building performance testing expert Corbett Lunsford and Pete Sanders take you behind the curtain at the soon-to-be-opened Sanders Home Services showroom in Washington Township, New Jersey (outside Philadelphia).
