Heating in Your Tiny Home
High on a hill and far from city water or an electrical grid, a tiny home stood on itâ€™s own. A thorough investigation resulted in the addition of a miniature power generator using solar panels to charge. The efficient tiny house worked to ensure it wouldnâ€™t use much energy. Focus the buildingâ€™s orientation to help exposure allowing the sun to be an important source of heat during the winter. Using a cast iron wood burning stove would also serve in the months on a mountain side. Â A generous overhang prevents too much sun from baking the tiny home during summer, a perfected balance. Install large wooden shutters that slide closed like a second skin over the windows at night to trap in most of the homeâ€™s daily heat gain. Surviving the winter and lasting the summer is not for the faint at heart in minimalist living.
