Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Some Pictures of the Progess So Far...

11:41 am - 55 degrees outside - clear blue sky, sligtly windy...

We have been building our home ourselves with the occasional help from family and friends.

So far it has been a slow process.  We have learned a lot along the way with a lot of shoulda', coulda', woulda's.  As you can see by the pictures we sometimes do things a little backwards.  Although our home is not finished yet, we are still having fun and enjoying this phase of our off-grid adventure, even though we do hit the occasional speed bump.

Some Speed Bumps:  monster size stumps, boulders and weather. 

Winter of 07/08 - we had quite a bit of snow that winter.

Working on the garage build site and back yard grade work.
