Construction Timeline

These pictures are courtesy of Bob Wallhagen who started construction on TinySol in the spring of 2012 in his backyard. The solar roof was powering construction (air compressor for pneumatic tools, table saws, battery charging for cordless power drills and radio for the entertainment of builders Bob Wallhagen and Alex Lane) by August of 2012. In October it had a finish floor and was complete enough for a road trip to Poughkeepsie NY and served as a shelter for a week. Construction halted for the winter of 2012/2013. The kitchen, beds and pontoon boat were under construction during the spring of 2013. It was finished for Carlisle's Old Home Day 2013 (Friday, June 29th, 2013) and launched on Lake Winnipesaukee on Friday, July 5th, 2013.

The pegboard to the left of the solar panel is just a template to position the pins that hold the panels in place on top of the rafters.

TinySol powers all the construction tools.

Moving TinySol requires two trailers and two pickup trucks.
