      Under capitalism, which is global, there really isn’t any choice. It’s impossible to live outside of that system.

      @Jimmy Hat that sounds decent, assuming it’s good soil, a sound livable structure and usable acreage? Is it 100% livable at the moment? If you still need to do a lot to the property to make it comfy and livable then $150k is too much.

    I swear that anybody growing up in a situation like this is going to have a better and brighter future with all of these tools they learn. We miss a lot of things schooling 9 to 5. It’s always great to learn from your parents and it’s always great to learn things that can’t help you survive, it’s crazy that this is the majority these days because not too long ago at all this is how most people lived if you couldn’t get by this way you couldn’t get by at all… Thanks for the videos, cheers!

      But we was forced by the government to go to work instead of living off the land. If we don't work there for we not have cash money . So we can't pay properly tax now we just lost our land that we owned. At least the majority it's that way.

    I am really into watching these alternative/ off-grid lifestyle vids but this one blew me away. The beauty of Stephanie and Joel's house! Its really inspirational that they made that themselves spending almost no money. I am really impressed! Their house could be featured in an interior design magazine. My favourite part is the glass bottle wall behind the spiral staircase. Another highlight was the woodworking details on the outside of the greenhouse room. Well done.

    I love homes that look like nature is trying to reclaim them. Homes that look like they "fit" into the surrounding environment. The red sunroom part of this home has to be my favorite part. I love the color and the structure. The window arches add the perfect touch. It reminds me of a conservatory in Victorian homes. I adore that entire look. Also love the openness and straight height of the home. It doesn't have annoying corners to block the view. The metal staircase is another favorite view point to me. The two of you have created a beautiful life and home together.

    It's nice to see an off-grid property featured that actually experiences winter. So often I find these idealistic properties are located in places like California and other areas with the luxury of year round, or nearly year round growing seasons, tons of sunlight for solar, and minimal insulation requirements. Meanwhile those of us up north with 3-4 month growing seasons have to take an entirely different approach.

    I love it. Congratulations. I retired at 29 to live a simple life in Cambodia. I picked up a one bedroom condo in a beautiful community that includes a pool,gym,and restaurant for next to nothing by buying it before they finished building it.The real estate company didn’t have enough money to finish the project so they were practically giving the units away out of desperation. I had to wait for 5 years to move in, but it was worth it. I have a strict budget of 700$ a month which i make double that in residual income from my investments. with my condo paid off this amount affords me a beautiful.. even luxurious lifestyle here when in the states i would have had to work for 20-30 more years. Its not for everyone but Its all about what makes you happy.

    This is really wonderful I do have to say that growing plants in front of the solar panels seems like a bad idea. My experience is that shading any cell caused a dramatic drop in efficiency.

      Actually, the angle of the sun is really high in the summer and it doesn’t effect the panels at all. 😊

      I was looking for this comment :D. So true. Move those under the panels. It is called agrovoltaics and some plants even grow better this way.

    This house is awesome. Does anyone know a specific name for the framing style at 1:09? He calls it post and beam, but his walls are regular stud walls. It is awesome that he reused barn materials and I’d love to the same, but I’m curious about his method. I have experience a carpenter’s helper but I have never seen that kind of mixed framing before. Thanks in advance!

    I LOVE this video!! I have seen lots of off grid stuff but this couple really knows how to make it fun and looking beautiful. The camera work is well done, some nice shots of the natural looking styling, absolutely gorgeous.
    Thanks for sharing!

    I love homesteading and off grid living I am an urban homesteader and hopefully soon I will be fully off grid in the country. But what gets me is that a lot of this life is luxurious, first world living. We are benefiting from access to capital and advanced technology, and obviously we maintain a connection to the rest of society. It’s a nice life but it is actually not accessible to everyone.
