Chris Haynes is an electrical and software engineer. He moved from a full size grid connected house to an off grid tiny house located on a rural lot. He has built a very small (66sf) tiny house and a code compliant 252sf tiny house where he currently lives.
He has been living off grid for over 4 years using a very simple and inexpensive solar system. He shares his experiences in tiny house living at conferences held in the northeast US.
He just released a new book called “Tiny House Engineers Notebook: Volume 1, Off Grid Power”. Its written in a style that is suitable for folks with no electrical knowledge.
Chris originally joined us at TSP on Episode 1365 that is almost two years ago, he now has a lot more experience actually living the Tiny House way. He has been though Snowpocalypse and a hell of a Heat Wave for a summer as well. So we will discuss somethings he has done to make his home more livable.
