What does off grid living mean to you?

Living in nature. Growing and harvesting your food. Creating your source of income. Disconnecting from public utilities.  It can mean any or all of those things. Living off grid is a way of life.  

With the level of uncertainty in the world today, many find self-sufficient living attractive. Whether you grow a balcony garden to control part of your food supply or live on a completely self-sustaining homestead, you are taking part in an off grid lifestyle.

How to live off the grid

Research and soul searching will help you determine how far “off grid” you want to go. If you’re not ready to jump in headfirst, you can take small steps over time until you reach your off grid goals. 

If you have decided to build a life off grid, there are some basics to consider before taking the leap. Finding the right land, determining how you’ll acquire power and water, and deciding what kind of house to build are all factors to keep in mind as you navigate the transition to a self-sufficient life.

Building off the grid  

Once you find a property and research your local building codes and ordinances, you can plan your off grid home. Off grid living does not mean primitive living! From tiny cabins to amazing Earthships, people worldwide live off the grid in comfort and style.
