2 Years Later: is #TinyLab Still the Highest Performance Tiny House on Wheels?

Corbett Lunsford

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!

#TinyLab Tour Ends: Lessons Learned

Corbett Lunsford

Grace and Corbett Lunsford are happy to not be moving every week, like they did on the Proof Is Possible Tour! Hear some of the ups and downs, and what they learned on this 13,000 mile, 26-state tour of the U.S. promoting measured home performance.

#TinyLab in Death Valley: Proven Performance

Corbett Lunsford

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.

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.

How to Keep a Rainscreen Airtight

Corbett Lunsford

Corbett Lunsford had a problem finishing the ventilation holes in the rain screen of the #TinyLab, and apparently invented a new tape technique using 475 High Performance Building Supply's Tescon Vana. Voila: Corbett's Car Wash technique.

Installing & Testing a Mitsubishi Ductless Mini-Split

Corbett Lunsford

Building Performance Workshop's Corbett Lunsford, with expert help from Uplifting Air's Brad Lemley, installs and commissions a 1/2 ton Mitsubishi ductless mini-split heat pump on the #TinyLab tiny house on wheels for the Proof Is Possible Tour.

Tiny Lab Floor Deck and Anchoring System

Corbett Lunsford

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.

Tiny House Building Lessons Learned

Corbett Lunsford

We've been working on the Tiny Lab for almost a full month now, and there are lots of videos still in the queue, but here are the first few glimpses into the world of building a high performance 200 sq. ft. tiny house on wheels:
