Tiny House #274198

Asked August 30, 2015, 3:33 PM EDT

I live in Saskatchewan, Canada and am planning on building a tiny house on a trailer base. The only issue I am facing is that the plumbing for all my water appliances will need to be run through the exterior walls of the house. Is there any way I can accomplish this build in a way that my plumbing will not freeze in the winter conditions (which can exceed -50 C degree temperatures)? Whether it be a way to have my water in consistent circulation or any other solutions?

Kind regards,
