Housing For Off-Grid Survival
Living comfortably off-grid without the need of utility companies and government services can be quite challenging. Most people start by buying a piece of land far from utility services because it’s cheaper compared to traditional lot housing. They see the potential in it when others don’t. If you have such piece of land, choosing the proper housing should be the next logical step. Before you jump right into, there’s a bit of research that needs to be done. You should figure out which options you have for off-grid housing and how can you adapt them to your needs.
Going off the grid is becoming a trend because people want to be independent and self-sufficient. They are becoming tired of taking part in the rat race and they want to live without having to rely on others. I don’t know about you, but being able to provide food, water and all the comfort you might think of for your family, is something that makes you feel complete as a human being. It’s something specific to the American spirit, and you can’t express the satisfaction it brings in just a few words.
Whatever your reasons are for going off the grid, you are not alone. Many people are seeking the freedom an off-grid life provides. As I said before, once you get the land you can park a trailer on it as a temporary home. It will provide you with everything you need until you build your house. You have two options when it comes to building, you do it yourself, or you search online for the hardcore off-grid builder.
Here are the types of off-grid homes you should look into: green housing, rammed earth housing, cob housing, Earthships, cabins and tiny houses. Besides these, there are also many custom-made homes and trailers that will work just fine. Now, let’s look at each type of housing and figure out which one is suited for your needs.
