If you need some motivation to finally make the move off grid, then this is it my friends.
Brian Schulz has built himself an off the grid, sustainable living paradise in Oregon. You don’t see many of these stories around, and when you run across one that inspires, it’s even rarer.
Brian hand-built all the buildings on his property, modeling them after Japanese architecture. His farm is completely off the grid and does not rely on propane (some off gridders’ “dirty little secret”) or other non-sustainable fossil fuels for energy.
The farm and workshop are very similar to my own dream of how I’d like to set up my off grid homestead. He has some excellent ideas and has thought of a few things I haven’t.
You owe it to yourself to watch this great video documenting one of the best solar-powered, sustainable, organic farms I’ve ever seen.

Schulz is an avid kayaker and for his day job, he builds skin-on-frame kayaks (as well as teaching others to build their own).
