Are you ready to go off-grid?
In October of 2012, my husband and I, and our two young children (then ages 2 and 5) moved across country to begin our own off-grid adventure: starting a homestead on raw land in NE Missouri.
Creating Your Off-Grid Homestead is the book I wish we had when we began creating our off-grid homestead. It contains equal parts practical information, encouragement, and radical homesteading inspiration. I will share with you how our family created an off-grid homestead from scratch, working in phases, and adding projects and infrastructure as we had time and money. You’ll hear what worked, where we made mistakes, and how it fit into our low budget, DIY approach to building a homestead without debt (and with two small children).
Creating Your Off-Grid Homestead contains 95 pages of information to help you start your own off-grid homesteading journey. In it you’ll learn:
Why we decided to go off-grid
How much it has cost to build our off-grid homestead
The solar electric system that we use, and how it works for our family
How we catch water for drinking, cooking, and growing food
How we store and prepare food in our outdoor kitchen and with creative cooking methods
How we bathe, do laundry, use the internet, and go to the bathroom with solar electricity and no running water
And much more!
You will be guided with dozens of questions for thought, so you can apply the information in this book to your own unique situation. Creating Your Off-Grid Homestead will provide you with the support and inspiration you need to make your dreams come true.
