I love the idea of an off-grid house but it always comes with too much DIY. I wish there were sellers with fixed affordable off-grid packages. It is fully off-grid except WiFi and we made smart decisions and installed reliable systems. You pay your money and you maintain the house. Get 4 friends and spend 4 months slathering cob incorrectly together. Never cut down a tree before? I realize this is contrary to the spirit. The idea came at me suddenly while I was building my off-grid tiny house in the Sierra Nevadas I don't know if I will be more impressed if that is parody or real sites.

The best satire is totally believable. He got me for a second too. I live "in the middle of nowhere". I'm not off-grid, but have friends who are. I think there are a handful of reasons that it is difficult to find a turn-key, ready to live in of grid home. Subdivisions are easy, they are all essentially the same. They have a road, electricity, water, sewer are waiting and everyone builders knows how to hook up to them.

As soon as you go of grid you have to figure that out, much of it from scratch because each site is different. Electricity- How much solar do you need? That depends on the climate and the level of comfort the owner wants.

Are they good running a generator when the sun doesn't shine or are they willing to shell out for a lot of battery? Are the panels on the roof or on the ground? Water - do you want to haul your own water or punch a well?

That is a big, site specific cost that can be estimated, but is also a big unknown. Sewer- composting toilet or septic system? Septic obviously costs not and each site needs some amount of design and approval, even here where you don't even need a permit for the structure. Roads - it is likely to not exist in most properties, the cost to get that done varies greatly. Ok, so the price can swing - a lot and it isn't so cookie cutter, but why does of grid so often get coupled to DIY?

Because when you live of grid at least around here you are the one who will plow and maintain your road. You are the one to maintain your solar system.

Your generator carb needs tuned? Do you drive an hour each way to drop it off and pick it up next week or watch a YouTube video and do it in an hour and have your generator ready and available instead of in the shop? I can only speak about what I see around me, but it is mostly DIY, self-reliant, prepared people who live here on or off grid.

By building your own systems you are ready to maintain and repair them rather than wait for someone to come save you. Can't cut a tree with a chainsaw? It might be a while before someone clears the fallen tree from your road. Even old Grandma's around here have a saw and won't let a tree in the road stop them. I keep a bow saw in each vehicle and have used it. It is slower, but not as slow as waiting! It is a mentality that is so different than my old subdivision neighbors.

I also live in a very rural place. Basically you have to end up doing a ton of stuff yourself just because of the time to drive to town and back is very high, or the cost to get a repairman out is prohibitive. One other issue is that there is usually a ton of regulations around building, and a county or state may not allow a developer to do at scale what it will allow an individual to do for themselves.

DIY is very much a necessary part of living off grid. It actually can be quite fun! What you're missing there is maintenance. I live off grid, I have nothing but reliable systems here. Stuff breaks every single day. Nature happens - we get lightning strikes, floods, fires, freezing temperatures, droughts - stuff breaks. When we moved here, some stuff had been done by the previous owners. No plans or anything, just "hunt the burst water line under the concrete" and all that fun. The major advantage of DIY is that you end up being able to repair your own stuff, to know how it works, to know where it is.

If you have an off-grid home that you can't maintain, you aren't going to last long there. I have this mentality with my normal on grid tract house. My saying is "at least I know what corners I cut". This sounds similar to the NIH syndrome in some software companies. In software, I tend to err on the side of NIH. In life, I am almost never 10x12 Shed Tiny House Yoga DIY. A popular guideline that makes sense to me is to control the tech that you compete on and outsource everything else.

Eg if "search" quality is a competitive differentiation, make sure you implement search yourself. Your goal is to beat the rest of the market in search quality so buying a commodity search product that anyone else can buy doesn't make sense. You are directly rewarded for paying the extra NIH cost to go the extra mile for your customers. For everything else, there's little benefit to paying the extra cost of NIH. Most areas in real life don't benefit from extra quality either.

My take on it, for what it's worth, is that DIY can go the extreme from building your own tools to just use plug and play tech, doing only the "plug" part yourself. I live off-grid as well, you really need to be ready to DIY. People looking for easy off-grid solutions are fooling themselves.

Living rural, on grid on an acreage and I'm still amazed at how much work it is. Some of it is self inflicted.

Redoing my footer drains by hand, building a cistern for extra water storage, land scaping, finish a basement, gardening, tuning teleposts, bobcat, mini excavator, snow fencing to reduce plowing, tree planting and protecting, fencing, too many maintenance and repair tasks to list.

There's always another project waiting OP might want to go live somewhere sufficiently rural but partially on-grid to try it out and see if it's for him. I'd suggest something with at least access through a gravel road, traditional electric provider, but with off-grid well and septic might be a good start.

When you're at the point where you don't need to call anyone to do something for you, then maybe you're ready to live full time off grid.

NotPavlovsDog 19 days ago. Me and my partner rebuilt a log cabin into a year-round house over the period of a year. Only bearing walls remained. Re-insulated, expanded and changed the roof, added a bathroom, sleeping lofts, etc. She did most light work while I was holding down the day job to secure the down-payment and mortgage, and I would handle the heavy stuff on the weekends.

The zone is not ideal for wind or solar, so we are connected to electrical. We had a contractor help with bath tiling, he did plumbing and electric hook-ups, an electrician did what was required by code for the electric system. Every single one of the licensed pros had cut corners.

The electrician did not secure the outlets to the walls properly, just enough for them to start getting loose after 2 years. One weak screw instead of four. I was afraid of electric for a while.

Only had the energy to read the code, some books and watch some youtube videos and re-secure all the outlets and set up 2 extra outlets, with channel cable dragging, etc, about 3 years ago.

The plumbing had multiple mistakes as well, wrong tank positioning, wrong main drain placement, no main Old Hickory Shed Tiny House Database cut-off to the tank, did not get a filter hook-up or a drain valve, etc, and the hot water boiler did not get a proper set-up for easy maintenance the magnesium sacrificial anode cannot be removed, too close to the ceiling, you have to dismount the whole unit.

If I had the money and not to have to work during the build process, I would have built a small house first, learning everything about how to do it right and observing the "pros" as they go along. It was my first experience with engineering outside of software.

Trust no one, do your own research, plan, experiment and verify apply even more in "physical world" engineering. It's nice to become more and more self-reliant with construction skills. I just serviced the indoor plumbing, changed 3 taps, installed a water-filter hook-up and filter, including pipes, and plan to assemble a big water filtration system, myself, in the summer.

Whether you plan to go off-grid, build, be your own general contractor, or even just buy a property, doing things yourself, provided you can follow engineering principles and values, is always the best bet. You want reliability. The pros want to make a profit. Life pro tip - if planning to participate in construction in any way, audit the locality and how strict vs smart their code and inspections are.

Get a Rheem Marathon hot water heater and permanently do away with sacrificial anodes. So much about construction drives me nuts. After sweating bullets over microscopic details of software design to find the balance between durability, longevity, readability, reliability, maintainability, security, etc.

On the other hand, most people aren't as bothered as I am about spending so much of a lifetime paying for a good that deteriorates to pretty much nil at the the end of that lifetime.
