Tesla tiny house

Hello!  Welcome back!  And yes, you read that title correctly.  Tesla has a tiny house!

I couldn’t find much information about it (ok I’m running out of time and just didn’t look into it) other than this website .   Anyways, check it out and let me know what you think.  I think it’d be pretty darn awesome to have a Tesla battery pack and reliable solar power for your whole house, if it was affordable.  there was no mention of price on this bad boy but I’m betting it’s pretty high – specially given the small size of the unit.  Here’s the details copied directly from their website:

  • Weight – 2 tonnes
  • Dimensions – 6m x 2.2m x 4m
  • Solar generation – 2kW PV system of 6 panels
  • Solar storage – 1 x Tesla Powerwall
  • Exterior – Clad in locally sourced, chemical-free, sustainable timber

Give the size of: 20′ – 0″ x 7′-0″ x 13′-0″ (I also grabbed the converted dims over from their website too) it’s a pretty small tiny house.  I’m assuming its 20′-0″ long and 7′-0 wide. In comparison my tiny house is 24′-0″ long and 8′-6″ wide with a max height of 13′-6″ to be road legal.

Let’s hope Tesla gets some good press out of this and makes some attainable solar panels and batteries for us more common folk to afford. =)

 

 

 

 

 

Electrifying news…

Hello and happy Tuesday!  Welcome back!  How’s everyone doing?  Me, I’m hanging in there.  It’s a busy time of the semester with last minute things, events, grading, projects, students freaking out, etc.  Plus I’m teaching a 2 week summer class right after the end of this term so I have to prepare for that…add on top of that, I’ve had an ear infection for the past week.  Yup, a grown adult with an ear infection.  I’ve been to see my doc and a specialist so I have some good meds.  I am on the mend but it has not been fun and quite painful. So what’s it like to be sick in a tiny house you ask….uh, just like being sick in a normal size house. ha! I spent a lot of time this weekend on the couch just relaxing,  drinking tea, watching movies, etc.  So really no different other than the fact that I also cleaned the whole house, which took all of 10 minutes so I guess that’s the added benefit to living tiny.

Another benefit…..
