The #TinyLab's plumbing system is highly efficient for water, electricity, and propane use, but it turns out that efficiency reduces the control over water temperature during different seasons. Corbett FINALLY solved the conundrum theoretically- but are the products available in the plumbing department going to perform as advertised?
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 checks the flue gas temperature, contaminant makeup, and efficiency of the tankless water heater in the #TinyLab with a new Wohler A450. Learn more and order this tool at: https://www.trutechtools.com/WohlerA450
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!
Each Wednesday of the 6-Week Mastermind Distance Course, Corbett releases a public video shoutout of a message to his Masterminds, or a question answered. This week: how to be the rockstar, despite people being idiots all around you.
Corbett Lunsford delivered several keynote addresses in 2016 on building and touring the #TinyLab, home performance testing mastery, and how the construction and home improvement industry is evolving to incorporate proof of performance. You can watch this recording, delivered at the 2016 InfraMation conference in Las Vegas.
Happy New Year from the Lunsfords and the #TinyLab, after traveling 13k miles through 26 states in 9 months on the Proof Is Possible Tour. Guess what? Washing a tiny house on wheels is exactly like washing a gigantic car!
Watch Corbett and Grace deal with a 25 gallon leak from their freshwater bag in the #TinyLab. Thanks to Jim Clark for all the help mopping and drying in Phoenix that day!
PSEG Long Island brought the Proof Is Possible Tour's #TinyLab and Green Jobs Training Center's Building Science Training Lab to East Hampton and Montauk, and here's what happened! Video produced by Geir Magnusson at Nice Studios- thanks also to Bill Sullivan, the man who made the whole thing happen!
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.
If you want airtightness (and you DO), you want to use airsealing tape. Corbett demonstrates Tescon Vana tape application, thanks to 475 High Performance Building Supply for importing this stuff from Europe!
Hear from Matt Adelman of Princeton Air Conditioning about the pro workshop portion of the Proof Is Possible Tour. Come study advanced techniques and tools for home performance diagnostics with Corbett Lunsford, the guy who wrote the book on it! http://ProofisPossible.com
Join Corbett and family inside the #TinyLab on its way down the road after it's clocked 4,000 miles! Fun sounds and shaking for all!
