How would imagine home away from life in the city, and in on-the-grid cookie-cutter urban life?
Everyone has a different vision, but more people than ever are making it a reality.
The growing concerns about all the things going on in the world, and the need to buffer from the vulnerabilities of a collapsing society have driven a growing community towards alternative living.
And benefits to living off the grid, and in a tiny home? No utility bills. No mortgage. And complete freedom.
Not that everything is easy or automatic. But these are structures that almost anyone could afford to construct. And when the SHTF, people living this way will be in a much better position in most cases to ride out whatever emergency has fallen upon us.

I recently had the chance to visit Jeremy’s completely off-grid tiny house in Eastern, North Carolina. The first thing that struck me about his tiny home is the simplicity of it while also maintaining a very nice aesthetic. His water comes from a pitcher pump inside the home that is filtered before use. His energy comes from a simple solar that meets all of his needs. His tiny house is basically everything he needs and nothing he doesn’t. He even grows much of his food, coming pretty darn close to self-sufficiency. One more that’s never mentioned around Jeremy’s home, for obvious reasons is “mortgage.” Thanks so much Jeremy for the tour!
There are many variations, and endless ways to customize a structure like this, or any other off grid home, to your needs and desires.
In many cases, it is simply a matter of changing the way you think about what a home is, and how your dwelling serves you.
If you are a slave to the mortgage on your home, and your reliance on on-grid power, it may be something you live to regret.
Then again, this kind of thing probably isn’t for everyone.
