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). See the best hands-on demonstration of home performance outside the #TinyLab! Visit Sanders Home Services online at: http://www.sandershomeservices.com/
Grace and Corbett Lunsford show not just the installation of APC Cork floating floor planks, but also the sound reduction testing to prove that it's performing the way it's supposed to! See the #TinyLab on the Proof Is Possible Tour in 2016: http://ProofisPossible.com
Corbett demonstrates the anchoring system that ties the wall framing to the trailer of the Tiny Lab, a touring tiny house on wheels. See also the weird lesson learned with having a trailer that's wider than 8'0", and the solution we went with for our tiny house on wheels.
