Design as a case studyfor cold climate tiny house construction, version.3 features a number of innovations uniqueto the challenges faced by -50°C weather.” – Leaf House Design Brief
The house is currently located in Pelly Crossing, a small northern community with a population of about 280 people that’s 3 hours north of Whitehorse, Yukon. It will serve as accommodations for the instructor/coordinator of the Yukon College Campus. Pelly Crossing is an ideal place to conduct this cold weather test as it regularly gets -40 to -50°C weather. Over the next six months the performance of the tiny house will be monitored with energy and temperature sensors.
