Tiny House Plumbing Puzzle Took 2 Years to Solve

Grace McPhillips

The #TinyLab's plumbing system is highly efficient for water, electricity, and propane use, but it turns out that efficiency reduces the control over water temperature during different seasons. Corbett FINALLY solved the conundrum theoretically- but are the products available in the plumbing department going to perform as advertised?

Proving the Ventilation System of the #TinyLab

Corbett Lunsford

Thanks to Broan, Dwyer, Defender, Mason-Grant Consulting, and Lawrence Berkeley Nat'l Lab, the #TinyLab is the highest performance tiny house on wheels ever built. The air quality and moisture control is finely tuned, and in this video watch the testing of each subsystem of the mechanical ventilation system as a whole.

Electrifying the #TinyLab: PV Solar, LEDs, and Other Shockers

Corbett Lunsford

Watch stage three of the electrical system process as Corbett Lunsford brings Fall Fast Tracker Eddie Lammers of Honey Home Services to the #TinyLab for a very long day of wiring. See how the Panasonic PV panels interact with the Outback Power system from Soligent, how the RAB Lighting LEDs and the Mitsubishi and Broan HVAC equipment finally come online!

The #TinyLab is equipped with 960 Watts of PV solar panels, 4.8 kWh of nanocarbon AGM batteries, a 3.6 kW 48v Outback FlexPower ONE from Soligent, 100 Watts of RAB Lighting LEDs, a 1/2 ton Mitsubishi Ductless Minisplit Heat Pump, a 30 cfm Broan ERV/HRV, and a Hewlett-Packard HP Z840 computer. We also have a vacuum cleaner, for those who are concerned about cats. Hallelujah.
