A simple off grid homestead. Built from the ground up with your own hands. Thats the dream for thousands of people around the world. But, with cable TV programs and made up youtube videos, what does that look like in reality. In this video , my wife Brooke and I show the process of building an off grid homestead , start to finish, and what its actually like. Thanks for watching.

Portions of this video were provided by my wife's footage that you can see on her channel ( Girl in the Woods)....here's a link to her channel.

    I love all the things, but with only 4 acres how long do you think it will take to use up all your trees for firewood?

    It used to be rural here, then through the campground people discovered it and the street lights came in and the stop signs and the homes and the drug dealers and people with toys and now we have a park across the road where teens drink and it has a plastic look... Time to sell.

    I grew up in a rural area, and I helped my dad do a lot around the house. But I've never had the chance to really build anything, even though I'm itching to. Your videos are not only great to watch, but they're really informative and inspiring, too. I love how you mention that folks don't need to know it all before they start, but then you also refer Larry Haun to go learn from or mention carpentry books so that those watching have a jumping off point. That's so helpful! You motivate me to be better at what I do, and to reach outside my comfort zone with projects that I've wanted to start but never had the guts to before. Thanks, and to Brooke, too!

    I have a question, how do you get money to buy groceries etc... when living off-grid, especially 25miles out of a town, i wonder if you gotta keep working (but then u just live partially off-grid) or you save some money for the project, food & gas ? Great video ! 👍

    I like living in the wood, the house building all by woods , but it's good with the village not a lone, in this world now not much human being I seeking more Demons, Devils, Monsters and they using Voodoo, Wicthcraft, BlackMagic, Ghost that's why people got killed, I think we live no matter what we need carry the protection, because evil have weapons at least we have something to carry one way or another if we don't have anything we will dies easily. It's true.
