We are finally getting started on our off-grid solar shed office here on the Tiny Shiny Homestead! After the initial shock of finding out that lumber has more than doubled, we quickly pivoted and have switched our solar shed strawbale build to an earthbag construction. Not only will this save us money, it will give us more practice working with this incredibly sustainable way of building.
Sometimes it’s hard to believe we’ve been traveling and living in RV’s for over 5 years now. Often we get asked about food - how do we cook and prepare food for 6 people in a tiny space? Add boondocking and living off-grid to the equation and things get even trickier! Without power hookups, we’re limited in the types of energy we can use.
It’s official, we are finally in the early planning stages of building our first structure on the homestead! But as with any off-grid project, there’s an enormous amount of research we need to do first. Let’s dig in.
