Shockingly Simple Electrical For Tiny Houses

Book-Cover-FinalI have begun working on the inside of my tiny and one of the big tasks that we had to complete was the electrical for the tiny house.  I knew that many people had a lot of questions about this and I have noticed that almost every single set of plans on the tiny house market either barley mentioned electrical or ignored it all together.

It was with that in mind that we have developed this ebook because we got so many questions.  The book was written with a whole team of folks including tiny home builders, a Master Electrician, and myself.

We show you how to wire a tiny house from start to finish.  We made it so someone who doesn’t have any knowledge or experience can go from novice to wiring their whole house.


Topics covered:
  • Basic electrical concepts
  • how to size and plan your system
  • How to wire switches, panels, lights, & more
  • Key electrical codes and safety
  • Wiring for on the grid and off the grid setups
  • Custom diagrams for each step
  • How to choose wire, breakers, & boxes
  • Solar panels, inverters, etc
  • Wind turbines and micro hydro power
  • Much more!

 

This is an electronic book (not print) of 80 pages of core content including real life tiny house wiring examples, plus 55 pages of reference materials.

  1. I’m wondering how relevant this book would be for Australia seeing we have different voltage and electrical codes.

    • Hard to say, while the principals of electricity are universal, codes and materials might vary.

      • Ian,
        I wonder too! I am an electrician and although Ryan is correct about principals being universal. I would imagine it would vary quite substantially being you do not 120/240 volt systems, isn’t that correct? I have never traveled abroad (outside of U.S.) but have heard there is only 240 volt systems.hmmm, well I am not paying $20.00 for curiosity sake but I would most defiantly
        do a little prior research first,Good luck with your project! Cheers,

        P.S. Perhaps Since it is an e-book Ryan you can add an appendix relating to systems wired for 240 volt systems as if it were ran off a solar,wind,battery what variables would be applicable.

        • Hey Kammy,

          All good points. It’s tough to cover all our bases in terms of being informed on other countries. We are currently read in 190 countries! So we focused on our US audience because its our largest and in the future we’ll look into expanding the ebook.

  2. This is perfect timing for me. It’s my next step!

    • Yeah! Most of my ideas for these ebooks come from me having to figure out how to do some of the key parts, electrical was one of those areas that there just wasn’t much out there on.

  3. Perfect for me too! Electrical is coming up on my list as well!

  4. Perfect for me too! That’s coming up on my list!

  5. So glad to know this resource will be available when I get to that stage. Right now, reading, researching, talking, planning.

  6. Does this book cover wiring for power coming from solar panels? Will it tell me how to set up the batteries and use dc lighting and power, or do I need to use a converter to get 110/220 AC power? I’m considering recycling motorhome appliances. (Don’t think I need 220 power.)

    • It touches on it, but not in depth FOR THE MOMENT. I plan to do an update on this ebook to include that very aspect. I hope to make the transition to solar soon. I have some 12v dc lighting in my house using converters.

  7. Hello Ryan,

    I specialize in solar. I have been in the industry for about a decade now. You can contact me and we will chat. Please check out my website too. SolarUnplugged.com is actually designed for small scale, portable off-grid solar systems.

    Sincerely,
    Paul

  8. Here’s another vote for adding a solar dc system to the eBook. I would be willing to pay for a consultation to have a system designed to meet my needs.
