About Corbett Lunsford:
Corbett Lunsford started testing and analyzing home performance dynamics in 2008 in Chicago, IL. By
achieving measured performance results for his consumer and building pro clients, and later by training others to
become testing masterminds as well, Corbett refined his craft of making the invisible visible and then explaining it
clearly. His mission is simple: to package performance testing so it can be easily understood and utilized by
professionals and consumers alike.
Corbett is the founder of the consulting firm Building Performance Workshop, and hosts the
Home Performance YouTube channel and the Building Performance Podcast, which features
interviews with the superstars of the building performance industry. He is the author of the book
Home Performance Diagnostics: the Guide to Advanced Testing, and the developer of the APT
Reports software tool.
Teamed up with his bride Grace, an award-winning filmmaker, Corbett’s hosted over 200
YouTube videos, garnering over 1.5 million views from over 6,000 subscribers. The duo also
created and co-host the 2018 television show Home Diagnosis and the 2016 Proof Is Possible US
Tour. After leaving Chicago in 2015, the couple designed and built the #TinyLab, the world’s
highest performance tiny house on wheels (pictured below). They drove it 13,000 miles and
toured over 7,000 people through it to show them what a high-performance home feels, smells,
and sounds like. Along the way, they gave 214 presentations in 34 cities across 26 states, and
after the yearlong tour with their newborn daughter and two cats, settled in Atlanta, GA.
