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.

Last Load Of Logs...

9:40 pm - 72 degrees - scattered clouds with a slight breeze...

Several weeks ago we sent out our first load of logs on a self-loading log truck {click here}.  And early this morning the self-loading log truck (with the really nice driver) returned for the last load of logs (which left a few thousand pounds shy of a full load – and yes, the trucking cost is the same regardless if it’s a partial or a full load).

Unloading the trailer aka log dolly.
Everyone finds the
self-loading log truck fascinating.

Off to the mill he goes.

Logging a small section of our property was not the intent of this project.  Clearing a defensible space is {click here}, and we didn’t feel the need to remove any unnecessary trees.

Now that Tony has finished removing all the necessary trees, the next step will be to clean up the area... after we cut, haul, split and stack the pile of firewood that is.
