Simplify Your Life by Building an Off-Grid Home

Building an Off-Grid Home is Simple, but Is It Easy???

Building an off-grid home is not as simple as most prepping websites want you to believe, because then they wouldn’t be able to sell you their crappy plans.

Gary is building one.

We talk about how his project is going, and what lessons he has learned along the way.

Use septic systems for your off-grid home to make the permits and bank involvement much easier to deal with.  It is basically just a composting toilet in the ground.

If you still want composting toilets, then have at it, but Gary warns against this.

Amazing Security Systems are in Your Grasp!

Gary explains the amazing wireless camera system that he uses, the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Game Camera, and how you can use it for monitoring your remote location.

He sent me a link to the boxes he uses around his property as well: http://www.camlockbox.com/

He also explains the tough but necessary fence he had to build around his property to deter theft.
