Off-Grid Desert Homestead

Our traveling and boondocking adventures led us to buy 11 acres of raw, unfinished land in the high desert of SE Arizona. We're literally building our homestead from the ground up using natural and sustainable alternative techniques like earthbag, water catchment, solar power, and more.

Jonathan Longnecker Jonathan Longnecker / June 08, 2022

Welcome, friends! We've spent the last several weeks re-building our ShelterLogic Garage-in-a-Box tents to withstand the high UV and 100+mph wind events of the high desert here on our off-grid desert homestead.
