Archive Marsha's Tiny House and Solar Setup by Marsha Cowan Added inside photos. My tiny house is only 6 x10 with solar lanterns that have their own tiny solar panels, propane heater, alcohol stovetop, and so I do not need much electricity. I am hoping this set up with a 100 watt panel, 1000 watt charge controller, 1000 watt inverter, and a 12 volt sealed gel marine battery. I am hoping to run a fan in the loft window, and maybe a computer for an hour or so each night. Anyway, thought I would pass along the picture. Here is a picture of the inside of the cabinet and the “stuff” inside. The best piece of information I got on actually hooking everything up was on Grape solar’s own site. As it turned out, I was able to loop the silver hoops (crimped to the ends of the wires) of the charge controller over the battery pins and bolt them down, then clamp the claw like things on the ends of the inverter (like on a jumper cable) onto the rounded nubs sticking up next to the pins, so they both did not connect at the same place.

Ensamble Studio Creates Truffle Vacation Home Using Hay Bales And A Cow The architects at Ensamble Studio are the bright minds behind this unique vacation home in Spain. … but not the only minds. They created this tiny home to be rustic, but modern, from the ground up. It was important to choose the right location, building materials and hay for this project. That’s right. Hay bales were stacked together and then covered in concrete. The mass was buried in soil and allowed to harden. Once cured, the shape was exhumed and sliced open. That’s when Paulina the cow’s natural talents really shone. Paulina was then allowed to eat away at all of the hay on the inside of the structure. It took her about a year to clear out the hay. The resulting space was incredibly unique and cozy. It was definitely worth the wait. Who knew that bovines could have such a good eye for architecture? Source: Ensamble Studio via To learn more about Paulina’s incredible creation (with the help of Ensamble Studio), watch the video below.

tinyhouse | attlevadetlevandelivet 7 Feb Bildspel om mitt vagnsprojekt Nu har jag fått tummen ur och lagt upp ett bildspel på youtube. Jag pratar igenom nästan hela klippet på någon sorts svengelska för att kunna nå ut till en större publik. De flesta besökare jag har på youtube är amerikaner så det är rätt tydligt att det är där det stora intresset finns. 2 Jan Skorsten och tapet samt första middagen i vagnen :) Bloggen dog samtidigt som jag flyttade in i vagnen. På bilden ser ni gipsskivorna som jag använt som brandskydd. Här är skorstenshålet i taket som jag börjat klä in med gips. Skorsten kommer på plats. Lina håller balansen på nedervåningen. Jag tar mått för den invändiga gipsen som kommer hålla mineralullen på plats. Första brasan tänd. Första middagen. Fick en plåt av Johan Skrot som jag klippte till och satte uppe på skorsten så det inte kan regna in. Det syns dåligt på bilden men den är där. Lite mer tyg har kommit upp där jag har mina ytterkläder. 7 Nov Arbetsdag 15 – Nya vagnen Klar med vindpappen i golvet. Köket.

How To Nuclear fallout shelters have been stigmatized as the ultimate prep for the paranoid and the butt of many jokes. But now that we’ve all been reminded that nuclear accidents can happen, nobody is laughing anymore. My hope is that nuclear preparedness becomes a topic we’re more comfortable talking about again. I’d hate to see us succumb to fear mongering and instead educate ourselves, prepare for the possibility, and work toward eliminating nuclear power and weapons. The Cold War seemed to create a general misconception – that a nuclear incidents are not survivable. A misunderstanding of half-life might also be contributing to the general confusion about radiation. This doesn’t mean we should allow the continued proliferation of nuclear reactors and weapons unless we want to eventually move underground, but while we are busy demanding the end of nukes, we should also be educating ourselves about the necessary tools and techniques for surviving nuclear accidents and blasts.
