Hi, I’m a young, practical, knowledgeable man, currently building my off-grid accommodations.

I’m looking for others to join me so we can share the workload and our knowledge, and learn together!

I’m planning a log house, a trapline, and some light farming.

I’d like to share m idea with some folks, and learn about theirs. With a bit of luck we might be able to star our own little community!

    I have an off-grid log-style house in Barrhead county on 63 acres. I’m currently not living in it full-time, but have started some small-scale farming (rye, oats, pumpkins, beans,…) and hope to move there permanently in a few years.
    How is your off-grid project coming along?

      Hi there
      I live in the Calgary area. I’m also thinking of starting a homestead possibly off grid. Are you in the black diamond area? Are there many buildings restrictions in your area. I’m just starting my research. I am trying to find land with minimum restrictions. Thank you
