No Sweat Air Conditioning

With the front door in place, I could finally close up Arborion. This meant that I could put the AC unit to use keeping the inside cool as we worked. The AC unit was the smallest I could find both dimensionally and in terms of BTU rating. Rated at 150 sq ft, it would be just enough for the 140 sq ft tiny house – especially after it is properly insulated.

We installed it in one of the dormer windows in the sleeping loft area. Supported through a frame placed in the window and from above with braided stainless steel cables that anchor into the cypress facia, it sits proudly humming along and keeping us cool as we work on the inside of Arborion.

I chose to install the AC unit in a window because I wanted the option of removing it when the weather turned cooler and it was no longer needed. Also, it would need to be removed anyway once I move the tiny house.
