Can you? Why yes! And I do. This is my third winter in my tiny house and the snowiest of the three so far. I enjoy this lifestyle, but it does come with some of it's own unique challenges. In the following video, I talk about some of the things you may want to think about or be aware of even before building if you are planning for life in a cold climate.
In these shots you can see just how deep the snow is around my house this year. More winter photos can be had in this post among others.
My amazing neighbor making sure I can get from where I shovel out to the main road.
It's almost level with the eves now! And we've had a lot of temps in the -20's to -30's F. range. So, I'm just saying, three winters in, I have some real winter experience in my tiny by now.
Above and below you can see the condensation I used to get before my wood stove. A frozen and a thawed version. Thankfully, the dry heat from the wood has totally resolved this issue for me. See this post for how bad it used to be.
Gathering and splitting firewood for my winter supply.
And filling up my pallet wood shed above that is now well snowed in as you can below. Being comfortable in the winter does require some planning, preparing, and work ahead of time.
And here's my tiny wood stove that has kept my house so warm and cozy. For a lot more info on this stove, see my posts on my latest update and tips, cleaning and lighting, initial review, first fire, and first look.
And looking down on my house from my path up the hill to the solar panels. Enjoy your winter climates of whatever sort you have. Let me know if you all have further questions!
