Tiny house vs. Hurricanes and Tornados?

     So having survived spending the night in a tiny house (down in Tennessee) that was hit with a 105 mph microburst in the middle of the night (not a fun experience- complete with watching trees fall down around us), I'm a big proponent of making sure that you should do just about anything within your power to ensure your tiny house is safe from high winds. Granted, you're not going to ever be able to do anything that will make a home "100% Hurricane proof", short of locking it in a brick bunker, but THERE ARE some precautions that can be taken.

Here is one of them- an installation we saw first hand at our last "Tiny House Summer Camp 5" in Vermont. We will have a Tiny House Summer Camp 6 in September most likely.... stay tuned!

....AND we have upcoming hands-on tiny house/green building workshops in Joshua Tree, Omaha, Boston, Seattle, and more....
