A simple off grid homestead. Built from the ground up with your own hands. Thats the dream for thousands of people around the world. But, with cable TV programs and made up youtube videos, what does that look like in reality. In this video , my wife Brooke and I show the process of building an off grid homestead , start to finish, and what its actually like. Thanks for watching.

Portions of this video were provided by my wife's footage that you can see on her channel ( Girl in the Woods)'s a link to her channel.

the problem is you still need the money to pay land tax and buy the food and other goods so are you really off the grid when you have a job that gives you they money for all the other stuff?

at the end of the video you said the how crazy the world is right now. thats not true. if you don't watch tv and turn off your internet. the world is just as it always was. its just the media messing with your mind thats all. world has always been the same. its how you look at it that has changed

dude your video doesn't show how to do anything. here is what im saying. i searched youtube one time how to make moonshine. so the video producer showed him and his family picking prunes then two miunutes later he poured some moonshine for him and his friends and said this is how you make moonshine. same thing like this video. you don't teach anything.

Hey nice video. The stove is it 2 feet above any roofing within 10 feet? If not you might want to go up a bit more so you dont light your great house on fire.

Is the narrator actually the guy building the cabin? Because if so, very well done on the narration and the work. Truly impressed

I was a carpenter all my life. The best tool for heavy work is machines, and building alone takes forever. But if you have plenty of time and no machines to lift, it can be done, but when you grow old you will feel the pains. If you had built between four trees you could have set up a lifting system, and then cut those four trees down when finished for firewood. And could rig the four trees to pull the logs from the forest with some type of donkey engine.

@luis mario Miller its just that in practice I do build with "only" a lot of basic logic. But the thing is even applying basic logic require experience, a lot of thinking, calculations, and prior knowledge. Seriously though now that I think about it I shouldn't hv said that as too many ppl take things too literal.

@luis mario Miller oh yea, sorry. I'm Indonesian so I have a lot of similar experiences, poor infrastructures and very frequent earthquake. Ppl should in reality consult with experts to build permanent houses, I'm actually working as an architect so yea I'm ofc in favour of that. I'm sorry if it came as too literal.

The rapture will happen without a doubt and Sooner than many even believe.It will happen without any warning , not one , in an instant , catching people off guard just like God always does, ie the flood , sodom and gomorrah ~ a rude awakening . No one knows the exact day or hour the rapture will happen is a certainty. There will be a revival NOW in the USA and worldwide FIRST which is what this is leading to now, many many souls turning to Christ Jesus for sure . THEN the rapture will happen after this when the last soul is brought in to Christ Jesus' protection . we are in the last days for sure( and yes a few years converts to hours and goes by quickly , and the rapture is highly likely to happen ANYTIME within the next several years OR MAYBE EVEN LESS , 3-5 years Max OR LESS If that , but no more , due to the time table has run out for Gods plan on gentile christians according to > all time lines< , references of biblical events, weather catastrophes, wars etc jewish variables ie third temple construction , red heifers being born , sacrifices starting soon etc. THE RAPTURE CAN HAPPEN NOW at ANY TIME make no mistake !! . Anywhere between 2021 -2027 the rapture can happen . The True Church of Christ Jesus will be GONE! Christ taking the Church Out of the earth is closer than many even believe . And when many millions disappear without a trace, aunts uncles friends etc what will you say then because it will happen ? Please awake to Christ Jesus which is the ONLY hope NOW and dont let yourself find out it IS all true later when its too late ...for anyone who sees this and doesnt know what to do please If you havent given your life and heart to Christ Jesus you will have REAL BIG problems way bigger than any problems you have Ever had If you are left here on earth after the Rapture . After the Rapture The USA , Worldwide , will face More evils , Inner city chaos, firearm wars etc etc ,power and water , food shortages etctec than it Has EVER been seen Before and you surely dont want to be Here then . We Have Time NOW to change , please seek Christ Jesus while there is still time to save ! no one knows the day or hour of the rapture ,But the rapture will start out just like any other day .....The Rapture will Take Place In the day In Broad daylight, sunny day , In an Instant FLASH without ANY warning , and there will be peoples Driver Ids, wallets found in various parking lots , Purses bill folds Found at work etc etc with NO explanation , and People VANISHING so No One can refute it has taken place. .The Rapture Will Take place But we may have several years left but not many more , as many are turning to Jesus and this revival taking place and many still being brought into the Glorious kingdom of Jesus and Until the last soul is accounted for , is all that is preventing the rapture from happening. We are close , Several years goes by quickly so we are very close !romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. And The antichrist is for Israel , the jews revealing NOT for the Church , and does not have to be revealed first before the rapture as many christians believe . there is nothing holding the rapture from happening Now. The antichrist is for the jews NOT the church which is the restrainer holding back the antichrist from being revealed . The church will Be GONE Before the antichrist is revealed . The church will Not even Need to know who the antichrist is as Its for only the jews , as Gods plan switches back to them once the true church believers are Gone. 2 thesss 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.8 And >then< shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, ==== Many of those that are left behind were seen and many hung themselves on fences on interstates , and roadways and different places, their cars left by the roadside. . It will be a horrible time , and regret will cause many to commit suicide . NOW is the time, dont wait until its too late seek Jesus NOW.

I do sometimes believe in experts, if I need surgery, I'd rather have a surgeon do it, than attempt it myself, or get the wife to have a go. I seldom get people in to do work on the house though, in UK it's law that gas stuff has to be worked on by licenced professionals, but given some people's ability Vs what they think their ability is, that's probably not a bad thing. Do think it's stupid that I can't attach a cooker gas tub but many wouldn't check the connection with soapy water, and our houses tend to be tightly packed next to each other.

It is very nice building but in my opinion it stands out to much, The point of living off grid is not standing out in the natural surroundings It would be better to blend in, if you built into a hillside your heating cost would be considerably less , and you eco foot print would be considerably less, No dis respect meant to your efforts as it is a beautiful structure and well last many years I’m sure

One of the fantasies of off-grid living is that it never happened before the country was invaded with guns. Sorry I really like you and this video, but let's not write violent dispossession out of history, let's respect those who did in fact make everything. It's not a fantasy that never happened. Even the biggest hearted person can be programmed to forget this. All that said, this is an excellent video and you are a great person.
