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.

Fire Pit...

8:49 pm - 63 degrees - light layer of clouds...

My parents had a section of an old steel heating oil tank sitting at their house; I asked if I could have it since they had already cut off part of it to use as a fire pit at our beach property.

After Tony brought the round chunk of steel home, he spent a few hours working on it.  First he measured out his cut marks, cutting off the one uneven end and then cutting the left over section in half.  We ended up with two 16” high rounds that we’re going to use for fire pits.

Of course we just had to try it out as soon as he finished cutting it.

We also decided to use one of the old orchard crates that we picked up last year to store the firewood in. 

Now all we have to do is gravel the fire pit area, and that section of the yard should be done.
