Lou has insulated the walls and put up the panels, which will be stained and varnished. The bathroom is in the corner, with the toilet in the far corner, the shower next to it and the sink in the righthand corner. The kitchen will be to the right of the bathroom. Hot water will be supplied by an on-demand heater. And the place will be heated/cooled by a mini-split unit. Lou believes his casita is so well insulated that his heating and cooling power use will be minimal.
Oh...the best laid plans of mice and men...ReplyDelete
He's got a lotta roof to put solar...ReplyDelete
But he also has conventional electricity.Delete
The solar panels on my trailer help keep my roof cooler in the summer. My Arctic Fox trailer is better insulated than most but even with that on a hot bright July/August day I can feel on the ceiling and tell where the solar panel shadow is on the roof.ReplyDelete
What prompted (came over!) him to "go sedentary?"ReplyDelete
he likes to make things which means wanting a nice workshop space :)Delete
I totally relate to having a simple homebase, with a one room casita and that big insulated and refrigerated cargo container for the workshop. I drool everytime I see this setup!
Well, good on him!Delete
