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.

It’s Bath Time...

51 degrees out - 9:55 am - cloudy and drizzling...

That’s right... it is no longer tub time, it is now bath time! 

This may seem like a very little thing, probably because most people take it for granted, but I just cannot express how excited I am to finally have a useable bathtub!!!

Tony's installing the Moen 1 1/4" brass trip-lever tub drain
assembly that we got in oil-rubbed bronze.  Yea!!!

For the past two years, we have had to drag out a red tub, put it in front of the fireplace, haul and heat water, bathe the kids, haul the tub outside to dump it out, haul it back in, dry it out, and put it away.

Caitlyn's first tub bath two years ago.

Yes we still only have cold-n-cold running water that is not yet on tap, so we will still have to heat and haul the water.  But you just have no idea how excited I am over the idea of not having to use the red tub anymore!!!

After 2 year of the red tub...
I will never ever take one of these for granted ever again!!!

  1. We are still doing the drag the tub in and bathe then dump water out now that it is winter but we also have an outside tub area set up that we plan to move indoors. Great to read from a kindred spirit! http://theoffgridhomemaker.blogspot.com/2013/09/but-how-do-you-bathe.html?m=1
