Our first snow of the year was last Saturday 10/26. Thanks to the wood heat, it’s mid-70’s and 80’s Fahrenheit inside. We got up to 112F one night, recently. Little Cabin, Big Woodstove. http://www.offgridhomestead.ca @OffGridHomeCA

Watch the video above and let us know what you think. Do you live off the grid? Are you considering making this change? Or does this concept seem too challenging considering the lifestyle alterations you would need to make?

Closing This Week!

Our little cabin will officially be ours this week. We’re still waiting for our “normal” house to sell. It’s a bit of a nail biter waiting, because we have this quasi mortgage in the form of a line of credit (granted, small amount for our cabin). We didn’t want any sort of mortgage again, and it feels like one step back and (asap!) two steps forward. I mind that a lot more than the sheer amount of work ahead.
