After settling on the idea of spending the summer in the Midwest, we crash landed into a cozy little house in Southwest Missouri. And let me tell you, we were in hog heaven. But before we knew it, summer was coming to a close... and we needed to make a decision.
Part three: Electrical Sourcing... No matter how rustic, simple, or minimal you want to live, some form of electricity is still pretty much a necessity. There are many options for sourcing electricity for your off-grid home, including solar panel options, electrical generators and batteries, or bringing in traditional power lines to your property, and each option or scenario has its own price tag and logistics attached to it.
Part Two: Heat Sourcing, Figuring BTU, and Safety... Many options exist for heating your off-grid vehicle or home, and your heat source really depends on your location and living space. We prefer propane for fueling our heat as opposed to electricity or wood, because for us, it's been the most convenient and efficient to use.
