Hey, I'm Steve!

I’m a former Air Force helicopter pilot turned off grid solar power home builder and blogging enthusiast.

Sharing how we designed and built our off grid home with just a few friends online has turned into a full blown lifestyle. Today our blog has helped inspire over 2.7  million visitors begin their own off grid journey!

So sit back and let us show you every step of our off grid adventure. From deciding why we went off grid to building the cabin to selecting the perfect solar powered system.
