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.

Chicken Coop Progress…

49 degrees outside - 5:50 pm - cloudy...

We have finally picked out the location for our chicken coop.  It’s just a short walk from the front of the house; near the driveway where there is a large, gorgeous Huckleberry bush growing out of a stump.  The coop will be on the other side of the Huckleberry bush so you wont see if from the driveway.  We will also be planting more Huckleberry and Blueberry bushes around two sides of the coop. 

Now that the site has been picked out, the coop layout, excavation and construction can begin!  We really have to hurry and get that coop done because those chickens are getting huge!
