Many people today are looking for a simpler, less hectic lifestyle. Are you one of those people? I know I am. Instead of running on the consumer nation treadmill like most people, I decided to take action and go in a different direction—which is where my off-the-grid project began. Knowing that other people are searching for the same thing, I decided to document my adventure for their benefit.
In Going Off the Grid: The How-To Book of Simple Living and Happiness, I provide a step-by-step guide for how to find your private piece of land and build a self-sustaining home. I recently built my own off-the-grid home in northeast Washington State, so this advice comes from first-hand experience. When building any home, things are not as easy as they appear on those DYI television shows. But with a little knowledge about how this process works in the real world, I believe anyone can achieve their dream of living a more quiet and peaceful life. The hardest part is taking the first step, and this book is the right place to start for any person interested in an off-the-grid adventure.
