After completing this course participants should be able to:
1. Understand what potential solutions exist for a tiny house’s water source(s), wastewater treatment or disposal system(s), and energy source(s).
2. Identify what solutions are feasible for a variety of situations or given scenarios.
3. Size an off-grid solar photovoltaic system array and battery bank.
4. Apply “toolbox” information and calculation methods to case studies and/or real life.
This is a Spotlight Course of the Week (Expires: 06/09/23)
This course is part of a multi-part course series on designing tiny houses (houses 400 square feet or less in size). This fifth course presents case studies related to highly mobile tiny houses on wheels (THOW) and off-grid tiny houses, whether THOW or tiny houses on foundations (THOF). Prior to the case studies, a “toolbox” of flowcharts, methods, and products is given to help show possible solutions for tiny house water, wastewater, and energy needs. Six examples and five case studies are included. Much of the basis of this course came from my own research, planning, designing, and construction of a THOW I built myself and the subsequent search for a property to place it on. This course is intended as a stand-alone course, meaning you can take it without having taken previous courses in the series. Certain topics and background are covered in greater detail previously in the series, so when appropriate, I make reference to other courses.
Tiny Houses Part 5
I have really enjoyed this series of courses, and found the examples to be very instructive in work on my own tiny home design/engineering activity. This Part 5, is the basis for developing practical solutions to THOwner requirements for services and utilities. Many useful resources for further information are provided. THANKS Kelly!
