Home performance articles and stories from the field with internationally respected building forensics guru Corbett Lunsford at the Building Performance Workshop. Hear new episodes of the Building Performance Podcast, see new videos from the Home Performance YouTube channel, and learn all about how diagnostic testing (more than an 'Energy Audit') can make home improvement and new home construction a proven process!

Corbett shows the simple solution used to mitigate radon in the 1960's retrofit project. One fan, one pipe, one hour, problem solved.

Corbett hired Geoff Hebner of Padstone Geotechnical Engineering to ensure the house being built will stand for a hundred years or more.
In part 2, Corbett shows the grading and leveling process with 6-8" lifts and 4x compaction using a remote-controlled trench roller.
In Part 3, Geoff returns to run a simple geotechnical test on the compacted dirt before pouring concrete, and Corbett finds out he's not as slick as he hopes.
FINALLY, we get to pour the concrete once the footings are finished with rebar, and well-supported per Geoff’s geotech engineering specs.

Grace and Corbett Lunsford demonstrate the best way to design and select your kitchen exhaust system, using the #TinyLab's own Broan ventilation components. The ACE130SS range hood (new model BCSEK1SS) paired with the 8" Make-Up Air Unit means perfect control over the indoor environment, the chemistry, and the health of their family.

Ventilation is simple in concept- it moves bad air out and good air in. But the applications can be intensely confusing- Grace and Corbett help peel the onion of controlling home performance dynamics (and the HOMEChem issues we're learning more and more about) using fans and controls available around the world.
Featured systems are AirCycler, Fantech, Broan-Nutone, RenewAire and Ultra-Aire.

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.
