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.
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!

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. Come see us in 20 cities across the US at: http://ProofisPossible.com
Infrared expert Corbett Lunsford uses the FLIR T660 infrared thermal camera to illustrate how insulation was installed in the #TinyLab for optimal control over heat bleed. For more info about where you can tour the #TinyLab on its 20-city Proof Is Possible Tour, visit:
In our first reveal of the Tiny Lab, Grace and I show off the structural and stress engineering basics of a tiny house, assisted by actual engineer John Bergman.
We believe showing home performance dynamics through the lens of a tiny house tour will make it click for a lot of American homeowners. That's why we've created the Proof Is Possible Tour, and we'll visit 16 US cities in 2016!
In 2016, the Proof Is Possible Tour will visit 16 U.S. cities, and we'll be training homeowners to understand measured home performance so they can truly OWN their homes. And our ride: a touring tiny house on wheels!
Over the next 4 weeks, Grace and I will show you the performance design of the Tiny Lab, a performance-proven design. Learn how the engineering of a tiny house gets done, and understand the performance of homes big or small through this tiny example!
WEEK 1: Engineering the Shape & Layout
WEEK 2: Engineering the Insulation, Airseal, & Weather Barriers
