About trtn

trtn follows the design and build process of the Carriage House, a tiny house loaded with DIY energy efficiency and passive house hacks. From a fully passive (no fan) heat recovery ventilator made out of recycled soda cans, to a made-from-scratch solar and wind powered electric array, we’ll walk you through every project as we do them.

Meet the team!
