Blossman Gas is the eighth largest propane company in the United States and they have just built a 152 sq. ft. tiny house powered completely by propane. The house was developed as a propane education tool and is now on a 73 store community tour in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic area of the U.S.
The THOW has two 40 gallon propane tanks to run the twelve propane appliances: two space heaters, a Briggs & Stratton generator, an outdoor light, Procom fireplace, Whirlpool range, refrigerator and dryer, Rinnai tankless water heater, and outdoor heater, fire pit, and portable grill by Napoleon. The total cost to build the Blossman house was $30,000.
According to Blossman propane is used by more than 1.6 million U.S. households for zone heating, water heating, cooking, fireplaces, and drying clothes. Tiny homes are no exception, most mobile tiny home owners choose to use propane for at least cooking and heating.
During the tour, Blossman employees offer propane tips, answer questions and talk about the benefits of propane as a clean fuel and heat source. The house will also be featured at community festivals, home shows, store open houses and other events.
