The Tiniest House
The Tiniest House
The tiniest house is a Corona Research and Development project looking into small-footprint living. Built using steel studs made from recycled cars and soy based spray foam insulation, The Tiniest House is equipped with a Lunos eGO Heat Recovery Ventilator, Neurio energy monitor, smart heating and cooling via the Think Eco modlet, and air quality/fire/security monitoring via the Canary system. We'd like to take this project to the next level and we are seeking an additional $20k to advance the house even further into the green spectrum. The upgrades we’d like to make include automated motorized window cranks, improved water filtration and treatment systems, atmospheric water generation, solar photovoltaic and solar hot water systems, electricity storage, rainwater capture, and a green roof/exterior walls. Additional improvements could also be made to make the house even safer by adding some sort of earthquake tie-down or anchor, a better electrical hookup post, and some sort of advanced composting or incinerating toilet like the Cinderella.
Another feature of the house is the NOAH Certification that it came with from the company that manufactured the house shell. The NOAH Standard incorporates nationally recognized safety, construction & energy efficiency standards currently used by the Home Building & RV industries to ensure that the house is built to the highest standards.
Currently the house is parked in Encinitas where Corona’s own Cody Harrison and Michelle Poliner reside in it part-time to test how the house performs under real-world conditions. In addition to funds we are also seeking partnerships with local municipalities to address concerns like earthquake and sewage safety, insurance, electric/fire safety, aesthetics/public perception/property value concerns etc. etc.
