Welcome to Off-Grid Home Sweet Home
We are an average single income family of four. My husband works while I stay home with our two young children.
This crazy adventure began in the fall of 2005 when we made a life changing decision to live off-grid by purchasing 22 acres in the mountains. Since then we have learned a lot along the way with a lot of shoulda’, coulda’, woulda’s.
All of the work put into clearing the build site and building our home, is being done on weeknights and weekends. The majority of the funding for this crazy project is coming out of our pockets a little at a time. Since we are doing everything ourselves and out of pocket, progress on the house is slow and seems to come in spurts. Although our home is not finished yet, we are still having fun and enjoying this phase of our off-grid adventure, even though we do hit the occasional speed bump.
We are living the dream, but it is not the romantic dream we originally had pictured. It is the get-tough dream. It is the realization that we can do anything! We have learned that we are responsible for ourselves. Those things worth having are worth working and waiting for. We have learned contentment.
