Corbett has made a few mistakes on one wall of this high performance house- he points out how and why this staging mistake happens in home builds all the time, and an inconvenient but effective way to fix it and ensure the performance of the envelope.
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!

Grace and Corbett built the world's highest performance tiny house on wheels in 2016. It was perfect. Then they toured it 13,000 miles across America and let 7,000 people come inside to feel, hear, and smell what perfectly tuned home performance is like.
What's the house performing like now, after all that torture? And under 2 inches of snow in Atlanta, Georgia? See for yourself in this 20-minute tour, complete with testing, demonstrations, and metrics that show Proof Is Possible, even for people who have never built a house before. The #TinyLab is still the undisputed most scientifically superior home performance demonstration in the world, and we sincerely hope others start challenging our work!
See Corbett put the finishing touches on the airsealing and insulation of the #DryVault's enclosure in Atlanta. All that's left is to test the airtightness and insulation perfection with blower doors, infrared cameras, lasers and spaceships.
