Tiny House Design Build Recap, and Looking Ahead

I can't believe it's fall, for real it's fall! In Vermont, the leaves went from barely changed last week when I was there building a tiny house, to almost all fallen this past weekend when I was at Yestermorrow taking my final Sustainable Design/Build Certificate course, Super Insulation for Zero Energy Buildings. Got me thinking about building a super insulated tiny house. Tiny houses already use so little energy to heat (or cool, depending on where you are), but super insulation would be a great option for a tiny house that was on a foundation. Why spend money on heating fuel if you didn't have to by designing your home this way? Very interesting stuff.

So here are a few more photos of the tiny house build at Yestermorrow from last week. I'm not going to go into great detail about how we built the house, because I still have so much to catch up on writing about the COMET's progress and other things, but please ask questions if you have some burning things you want to know! Now I can officially say I've built a tiny house on wheels.

And there you have it! 10 people built a tiny house in 10 days. After the class, the instructors finished up the siding and now the house is set to go back to Detroit to it's new owner.

I'm doing a segment for spaces.tv this weekend, which I am super excited about and SUPER busy getting ready for. The COMET will look pretty rad by then, and then I think I'll do some sort of unveiling (it's not done, and won't be till November 2 - Tiny House Workshop with Deek in Boston - but it's looking pretty good!).

Thanks to everyone to continued support and thank you for reading along!
