Maker of heating and cooling products specifically for your tiny house!



Gary Bute is on a mission and his passion as infectious as Ebola and just as deadly. Check out his website where he runs down the four areas he considers critical (aka - needing professional attention) tiny house systems. We run the gamut with Gary as he describes all the things that could possibly go wrong in both building and living in a tiny house. Then gives some pointers on fixing them. You’ll want to listen to this episode!

Gary’s Website:Tiny House Systems

About Gary in his own words: "When was 20, I built a small wood framed cabin on the back of my Chevy pick-up. After that I abandoned the thought of living small and like most of America it was about having a bigger and nicer home. I designed and constructed my first 1,650 sq. ft. custom home in 1983. In 1999, I built another 2,000 sq. ft. custom home on a golf course near the Vail Colorado ski area. The monthly payment for this home was over $3,300 plus utilities. I worked hard to pay for a house that I didn't occupy because I was working all of the time. I realized that was more house and stress than I needed so I downsized to a 550 sq. ft. condo in a core area of Vail. I sold this house in 2008 realizing that this was still more house than I needed.  I downsized even more into a 245 sq. ft. motor home. I went where my desires took me for the next 4 years and lived off the grid part of that time.
