Who else is in the process of going off grid?
We have 30 acres also and are in the process of going semi off-grid. We have a rainwater collection system and a well and are putting in solar panels and a composting toilet. We are sort of doing one thing at a time with the eventual goal of being completely self sufficient. I'm excited to see what others are doing.
With 3 kids and a hubby who gets stressed when crowded (and I do too moderately), I think I need to wait til some of them are grown and gone. I want a good yurt for a couple years to save up to build our own house. How are you doing with the small home and kids? Is the big space outside enough to help that issue? What about when the weather's bad?
