One of the exciting new projects I’ve been working on is wiring an [inaugural] Tiny Home for Isaac Bale of Swell Carpentry Ltd. It’s a pretty sweet little house and I can’t wait to see it when it’s done. Isaac has some big plans coming to fruition here in the Comox Valley and I’m extremely happy to be a small part of his new project.
Tiny Homes are in HOT demand and I have no doubt we’ll be seeing more of them in the coming years. Offering first class finishing and gorgeous custom touches in a small package means the ultimate in comfort and convenience for homeowners. The added benefit of portability brings unparalleled flexibility into the equation and I can really see the advantages for all ages and all lifestyles. Young and old, living small appeals to many!
From another [but equally important] standpoint, you just can’t beat the energy efficiency of a tiny home. With less space to heat and illuminate, the overall utility costs of this wee house will be a fraction of a traditional home. The liberal use of LED technology is a major contributing factor and in this case, I wired the tiny home for LED wafer lights. These all in one fixtures are unique in that the bulb is built into the fixture. With a lifespan of 50,000+ hours they offer a decade (or more) of maintenance free illumination. Wafer downlights are fairly new to market but are taking the lighting world by storm. They are extremely lightweight with an unbelievably slim 1/2″ profile but they offer brilliant, energy efficient illumination. For all of these reasons, they are the absolute best choice for for this application and I strongly recommend them to anyone for tiny home wiring.
