We're moving semi-off-the-grid. Anyone else?

Being inspired by some good friends that live off-the-grid, me and my husband decided to finally do the move as well. But we will not live completely off grid but semi- I would say.

We will have access to electricity from the grid (and internet), but we are saving for a solar system. This article https://greentumble.com/solar-energy-pros-and-cons/ really convinced us solar is a good choice, but it's still expensive. My husband is considering a DIY option which would save us a lot of money.

Is there anyone around here that lives off the grid? I would love to know more about the struggles that you encountered along the way. We lived for 1 year off the grid (long time ago) so we are not complete strangers to this way of living but there are always new challenges.

I cannot wait to start organic gardening and buy less supermarket food...

There is a hospital 30 mins drive from the place and a supermarket close to the hospital as well.

We are planning to move in late spring after all snow is gone.

Hi Gabi,
thank you for sharing your story!
We want to move to the country side at the end of the year and I cannot wait for it! I'm really excited about changing our lifestyle!
