That cabin looks great! I'll have to check out your video's. Solar has never been cheaper so now is a good time for people to take the plunge either off grid or grid tied. If I'd have known how cheap they would become I'd have moved farther out and gone off grid.

I have been living off-grid for over 15 years now. Started small living in a camp trailer with one 45 watt solar panel and an old truck battery to power a water pump and lights. I saved enough in two years to build a 14x14 off-grid cabin.
The cabin has a kitchen, dining area, living area and bathroom downstairs and large bedroom and office upstairs. My power system is 580 watts solar and 400 watts wind which runs my water pump, lights, tv, laptop, fridge and lots of gadgets. I use a solar composting toilet of my own design and hand drilled my water well. Heat is woodstove with backup propane.
I have lots of vids of my cabin and system on youtube for ideas:
I hope to make some friends and share off-grid ideas!
I bought your e-book from Lulu a couple of weeks ago - some very good information in it. I will be purchasing a printed copy at some point as well, but for now am happy with what I have read in it.

I would love to make the same kind of changes but the thing about the world as it is, is that all lives are enmeshed with the system that exists and your world, which is a much better world that has a place for the natural world rather than a purely self-centred man-made world, exists in a time bygone or a time yet to come for most of us. But as you and others like you prove, it is not that remote or fantastic. At some point, the purely man-made world that I mentioned earlier should be outlawed!

I'm past thinking there's one right way for everyone to live, people just aren't all the same.
BUT what you're doing is something that a lot more people should know about. It occurs to me I have no idea how environmental subjects are tackled in schools. I guess as part of geography.
I agree. Even if not everyone chooses this way of living people should know more about how it works and what all their options are. Some people live on the grid because they just don't know any better. They don't realize that there are other choices.
