DAILY LIFE OFF GRID (Challenges)

About us.

So we have been living Off Grid since 21 March 2018 permanently. It hasn’t been all that long, but has been an adjustment nonetheless.

First thing to mention would be building your home while living with a family in a travel trailer. Key point would be ‘family’. As doing this with two adults or solo, it could be done in a tent, haha. The travel trailer we have is quite large but the walls and ceiling seem to be shrinking in on us these days. It really does become a challenge at times living in here. Lugging water, composting waste, etc is extremely easy compared to just day to day life in small quarters with a family. Not to make it sound completely horrible, as it is not, and is very doable, just to give you a bit of a reality check 😉 . Another thing is showers when it is sweltering hot out. The convenience of showering at any point when on grid is a blessing we most certainly miss, especially on work days. But again, we have a pretty decent setup and make it work.

Well, just wanted to drop a quick note here on some things we deal (currently) with on a daily basis, any questions can be put below in the comments or by emailing us. Thanks 🙂

About us.

In 2015, our family faced a real health crisis that brought us to 2017 facing a release from the military. Since our lives were being turned upside down we had to find a new way to provide for our family so we decided to build a modern off grid homestead. Our journey is just getting started in the backwoods of Canada. Have you faced similar challenges or just want to take control and live life on your terms? Come along with us as we show that you just have to go for it no matter what!
