#TinyLab at Rockville MD street fairShopping for home improvements or a new home will never be the same, now that the Proof Is Possible Tour is coming to town. Renowned experts Grace and Corbett Lunsford (with their new baby) are on a 20-city U.S. Tour from April 2016-January 2017 in a high performance tiny house on wheels called the #TinyLab.  Their mission is simple: to revolutionize the home market by teaching consumers and contractors alike to use scientific testing to prove the work gets done to quality standards.

Each city on the Proof Is Possible Tour is sponsored by a local company who shares the passion for empowering homeowners and changing the game.  “Diagnostics for measuring ‘home performance’ have been around since the 1970’s, but despite nationwide media campaigns about energy efficiency and ‘going green’, most homeowners have no idea these tests are best used to prove that home improvements worked,” says tour founder Grace Lunsford.  “And if you’re buying a new home, you should ask for the proof that all that money you’re investing is being spent on a quality job. Every builder says they do great work. Everyone says they are great drivers on the road. With proven Home Performance, you never have to accept opinion as fact, or go to sleep with that dreaded feeling you got taken.”

#TinyLabThe Proof Is Possible Tour gained a nationwide following in its inception- the tour is entirely crowdfunded, and actually far surpassed 100% of its funding goal on the crowdfund site RocketHub. The #TinyLab, a tiny house on wheels the couple designed and built by hand for the tour, was also collaboratively supported by many manufacturers and suppliers of high performance building products, including PureBond formaldehyde-free plywood, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Broan, RAB Lighting, 475 High Performance Building Supply, APC Cork, Hewlett-Packard, Outback Power and Soligent, and the test tool companies Dwyer, FLIR, Retrotec, and TruTech Tools. ProofisPossible.com best explains this unique multi-disciplinary project, a culmination of the couple’s work to date and mission to make the world a better place.

The following cities made it onto the tour and represent the diverse interest in measured performance across the home improvement and construction market. A range of home performance testing, HVAC, contracting, advocacy/training, and public housing organizations have sponsored this unique tour of weeklong public events and bonus days:

Each week, Sunday-Saturday, the couple will pull into town with their Tiny Lab and connect with the community through daily open houses leading up to hands-on workshops for Homeowners and Realtors on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, free of charge. Corbett Lunsford will also teach a full day training for contractors and Home Performance Professionals for a small fee.

Corbett Lunsford says about the tour, “Most of our clients feel lost and frustrated when confronted with problems in their homes. They turn to old-fashioned contractors who give them conflicting opinions based in a myopic view of the house- most HVAC pros only focus on the air conditioner, most roofers recommend a roof fix, plumbers only talk about plumbing. Well, there’s a new type of contractor out there who can rescue us from opinions. We need to seek out the companies who rely on diagnostics, so we can know exactly what the source of any problem is and exactly how to solve it without flushing lots of money and years of time down the toilet. Our TV show Home Diagnosis will show Americans exactly how to really take ownership of their homes- where they spend the most time and the most money. The days of disastrous home improvements and brand new ‘money pits’ are over.”
