Off Grid Electrical, Plus We Moved the Tiny House!

This video was made part way through the electrical installation. I discuss my thought process on why I chose to to have both an AC and DC system and the advantages of having an off grid capable Tiny Home. I also mention increasing the gauge of wiring for some of the DC circuits. The reason why I did this was to reduce the power loss of running DC power over longer distances. The reason why the electrical grid is AC is that it transmits great distances without as much power loss.

The tool I used for figuring the optimal wire gauge for my needs: http://www.solar-wind.co.uk/cable-sizing-DC-cables.html
