For individuals who have been considering off-grid living, they may have found a wide variety of options facing them. Off-Grid living can range widely from wilderness living to luxury modern living in a full off-grid homes. These options can be mind-boggling for some people and it can bring on confusion. Here are several off-grid living options, described in detail to cut back on the confusion and give you an idea of what living options are available to you.
Wilderness Off-Grid living
This type of off-grid living is considered the most extreme off-grid living option. Wilderness off-grid living requires very little financial investment however; the investment of time and resources is much higher with this option. An example of wilderness off-grid living would be a basic survivalist living shelters, aboriginal living options or yurt style options. For more information and a solid outlook of wilderness off-grid living the staff of GoGreen highly suggests Dave Canterbury’s Yurt Video Journal.
Tiny home or RV Off-Grid living
Tiny homes, which were made popular by Tumbleweed Homes, as well as RV living is a very common way for many people to live off the grid and still maintain a connection to modern society. A Tumbleweed home or RV home can be as much as 500 feet and in some cases as little as 200 square feet of living space. These homes can be operated through the use of solar and water power. Many of them are mobile which allows individuals to move the home to the location that best suits them. There are aspects to this type of off-grid lifestyle that many find difficult at first to transition to. There are several YouTube videos that currently show Off-Grid living options for people interested in tiny homes or RV living.
Fully Functional Off-Grid Living
Fully functional off-grid living tends to center on individuals who want all the modern conveniences without the electrical grid. This is by far the most costly form of off-grid living and the most difficult to maintain and build. There are several people who have managed to go completely off the grid while still maintaining the modern conveniences. One such individual is Les Stroud, expert survivalist and outdoorsman. By making an investment in several acres of wilderness that contained old farmhouses, a lake, and other resources Stroud was able to convert a barn into a fully functional off-grid living home while still maintaining the comforts of home. Though there are still some aspects that do need to be tweaked in order to maintain off-grid living, such as alternative refrigeration methods, this method is the most widely thought about and the least likely to occur without a large amount of funding.
