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.

Slow Going…

38 degrees outside - 8:47 pm - raining...

We are building our home ourselves on weeknights and weekends.  So far it has been slow going.  Now that winter has descended upon us and the days are short, the work on the house has slowed down to the few hours of daylight on the weekends.

Since November 18th, we have had a blanket of snow on the ground.  With the high winds, low temperatures and frozen snow covered ground; it has definitely limited the outside work on the house and property.  Instead the weather has kept us inside working on the wiring, one of the many things on the long list of inside projects.  With warmer weather on the way and a 4,000-foot snow level, hopefully things will thaw out for a brief opportunity to continue work on the long list of outside projects.
