    OMG… my mind translated the title to: tinny house village in the highest city in the USA… my mind boggled at that… had to go back and re-read the title.

        Have to admit… I felt a bit of a “dope” and nearly had to “smack” myself.

        But seriously, given the environment, why don’t they have a covered porch, even a clip on one, so that you don’t lose lots of heat when there’s all that snow around. I know from experience how quickly a house can go from nice to zero heat-wise. I’m sure it’s not out of the realms of practicality to build one, that could be taken apart if shifting to another locale and re-erected. None of the TH’s in the link page appear to have one. To me, it sounds like a plan.

          Actually, snow insulates and has an average R-1 Value. This is because when water freezes into ice crystals, a lot of air is trapped in its lattice structure and trapped air is always good for insulation, especially when it’s in the form of tiny pockets of trapped air.

          Really, it’s how Inuit can live in igloos and it’s a lot colder in the arctic…

          The only issue is that it also acts as a thermal mass and can also reflect some of the heat from the sun before it melts. So it slows down the heat up process when spring comes around but during the winter it can actually help…

          Anyway, you’ll lose far more heat to the open air and especially if it’s windy… So better to have an enclosed porch if you’re going to cover it and it has to be able to handle the snow load…

          While if the house loses heat quickly then it’s either not well insulated and/or it’s not air tight… Insulation doesn’t stop heat loss but it does slow it down, as well as effect how the interior temperature can differ from the exterior when actively heated or cooled, and so rapid heat loss or gain to and from the exterior is a sign of poor building performance.

          You should check out Fy Nyth youtube channel, she lives off-grid in her tiny house and it snows a lot in her area…

          @James D.

          I’m well aware that a covering of snow insulates.

          But… when one opens doors heat escapes at a very fast rate of knots. Hence my observation on the non-porch issue. Obviously my comment didn’t reflect so well on what I was thinking. Despite me reading, and re-reading my post several times before sending.

          @Eric – Ah, okay… But I’m thinking you mean a enclosed porch then because a covered porch would still be open to the wind…

          Though, I’m not sure they have large enough lots to allow for porches to be added… Setbacks can prevent them from putting anything close to the edge of the lot and most of these seem pretty close together and some space may be reserved for vehicle parking space…

          Anyway, I’d still suggest checking out the Fy Nyth youtube channel… She’s been living in her home for over 5 years now and deals with similar winter conditions…
