“The Solar Parasite” Window Box Heater – Tiny Yellow House


This time around on Tiny Yellow House, I decided to mess around with passive solar heat so as to warm the always-cold front foyer of my home. The result: a smallish, closeable, passive solar collector that fits into a window opening. Its not rocket science (and it NEVER will be here on Tiny Yellow House) but it does work, even in January, in New England.

The NEW version of my book Humble Homes, Simple Shacks is out in a week or two! Check it out (part of this design is from that book).
