Chris Haynes is an electrical and software engineer. He is finishing up a major lifestyle change moving 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 2 years using a very simple and inexpensive solar system. He shares his experiences in tiny house living at conferences held in the northeast US.
