On a warm summer day in 2016 Grace and Corbett Lunsford brought their tiny home on wheels to Cincinnati.
"Corbett and Grace and their new baby went on a 20-city U.S. Tour from April 2016-January 2017 in the world's highest performance tiny house on wheels, the #TinyLab. Their mission was simple: to revolutionize the home market by teaching consumers and contractors alike to use scientific testing to prove the work gets done to quality standards." Learn more.
I spoke to Kathy Kennedy there and learned more about her efforts to build a simlar small footprint home that can have equally healthy indoor environment. Here's a letter she asked us to share with you.
I've illustrated this "Tiny Home - Tiny Lab" post with photos I took at the event, sponsored by Julie Toliver.and her business Energy Fitness For Homes.
P.S. I, unfortunately, was having laminate flooring installed in my home a few years ago and the release of the formaldehyde damaged my lungs and my nervous system. I am one of the estimated 10 to 20% of those who can become sensitized to formaldehyde. Things I didn't know and now do - formaldehyde is added to ground beef to preserve it (attributed to Dr. Hari Sharma - Retired Director of Natural Cancer Prevention Research at The Ohio Sate University), formaldehyde is introduced in mattresses and most clothing is treated with formaldehyde to make it wrinkle-free or to reduce wrinkles during shipping (Consumer Product Safety Commission website).
Here are a few videos from the tour.
