Hello all! I am basically wondering what kind of regulations are out there for people living off the grid. Has anyone out there been inspected by CPS? I am currently moving into a trailer that is in great shape, but is going to be set up off the grid. This will include solar power, pumped water into the house for dishes, etc., wood stove, and composting toilet. I am in the middle of a custody battle over my 6-yr. old and just wondering what, if any, regulations are set up for people living off the grid? We are living in KY, and I may have to be inspected by CPS due to allegations made by my mother that I was homeless with the children. They granted her temporary custody of my 6yrold, of course, she never tried to get the baby.
At the time we were traveling, camping out mostly and staying in our van and tent.
Thankfully, I have someone willing to let my live in their trailer on 100 acre beautiful property in KY, but I have no way of putting a septic system or connecting to the power grid (which I don't want to anyway). But my plan is to install solar and a composting toilet. Is this going to be a problem if CPS were to become involved? Please, any help or advice would be appreciated, I am very worried and miss my boy, I've never been away from him before.
