Are we crazy? Maybe. Or maybe this will work and we will have an offgrid house that nurtures our souls. We have traveled the country in a van for the last few months, tried out conventional tiny homes, and lived full time in an RV for 5 months. With this much mileage and experience I don't think this one will be that hard. No electricity, no sewer, no internet, no problem. The shell comes next week and we will be working all summer on getting the inside finished. Come with us for the journey! We did the Dave Ramsey baby steps and now it feels like a good time to goof around and see just how far we can stretch!

Hey guys! You might be wondering what’s up with all of these fancy affiliate links. If you purchase something from these links, my family might receive a small percentage from that purchase. It’s the company’s way of saying “Aw. Thanks for sending your friends our way, buddy!” The best part is that it doesn’t change the cost to you at all. It’s a win, win, win!

I don't know if it's the ambient noise, WiFi, dry air, or fluorescent lighting, but libraries exhaust me really fast. I have to go in knowing what I want, get those books, and get out fast. Malls are the same.
People who buy these units never consider the major “ What If “ situations! A lot of us put ourselves in unnecessary situations and dramas! It’s like teenagers popping kids out like it’s cool & trendy!!! Try to really think! What if you can’t have the public space for work? Don’t count on public services if you want true independence! Do some true deep thinking! Your elders are the best to share life experiences! Good Dau!!!!
Depending on where you live it's doable. Years ago a friend of my family bought two tiny sheads and for about $10,000 (cost and insulation) he had what was basically a one bedroom house and every few year's he added a anthor "room" untill it was about 3 bedroom house, it was very strang layout to say the least.
Lol, just realized that the she'd you guys choose was the very one my son & I had looked at and considered as a possibility for our tiny house! I really loved the porch & the lofts. My son wanted to use the front area just to left inside front door as a breakfast nook.
Pretty cool! I live in IF too, we've been considering going with a tiny house & were wondering about any laws regarding living in tiny houses here in City & County. Can you please give us some info? Thanks.
If you hook them up to anything they don't pass code. We are not hooked up to power, sewer, water. We use a hand pump and an outhouse and 'camp' in our little shed. It is getting really pretty and we love it. When we have a propane fridge it will all be complete.
I'm new to your channel. Found it through Justin Rhodes and Off Grid with Doug and Stacy, and, wow. I think thats all the words i have for now. biking to keep wifi away from the off grid house is...logical? sensible? im wondering how practical it would be with inclement weather, though. So, - off to watching more of your videos to find out!!
I live off the Grid in a little house my son and I built. We travel to town for the internet and for our phone to work. We homeschool. So at the end of this video you stated that you were going to do the same. How did it work for you. We try to get things done. I find myself making a list.
Ok I have to ask ... do you keep moving because you fix up these places and sell them ?
Or get paid to fix them up then move to another fixer upper ?
Not sure what you guys are doing .
I miss your gardens.
Dirtpatcheaven ours is a Mennonite built lofted Barn cabin from Premier Portable Buildings. It was built by the Mennonite community in Greensburg Kansas not far from here. It was a bit rough at first downsizing to less than half the square footage of what we lived in before but I like this better.
Boots are so impotant its good being frugal but your feet are important go buy a good pair u get what u pay for with all respect those are 20$ walmart boots had a pair and thesrewed my back and knees all up dont skimp on boots a pair of redwing or chippawa will last you at least 3 year atleast
1: why the double studs in places? 2: i would think those headers over the windows would be bigger, 3: if it was me, i would jump in some cripples on both sides under the window sill, maybe add a 2nd sill plate
We did get it inspected for what we were using it for. We had no electricity, water, or sewer so it would be hard to regulate us for camping on our own land for the summer. We had an official porta-potty and clean water we pumped from a clean well that was about 50 yards from the shed. We did just fine.
also you may have already checked but I said is not classified as a tiny home and I just had to tell some other person about this on his video because it was a really huge shed its build-out with a bedroom bathroom and a living room and kitchen tiny homes are classified to be mobile and on a trailer and they get away with being not permitted not taxed and doesn't have to be put on a slab because of course it's on my trailer with wheels and you can get it at the DMV as an RV class. to put any kind of shed even a small work shed above certain footage most cities have a CCR call the code restriction. for anything that is built on property you have to put a slab and then you have to pay a permit and if you're living in it you may have to pay home taxes. because I plan on traveling and doing a camper conversion I started watching all these videos including tiny homes which I don't want to to pull anything and then I see all of these tiny homes put on land and stuff it's absolutely illegal to have anything on your land in California that is not permanent. you're not allowed to put your own RV hook it up till like Thursday have someone over there you're not have allowed to have it in the driveway of course and have someone live there and you're not allowed to rent your land out to somebody to put something on your land. if it's permanent of course you can do that get permits get the licensing pay all the fees but it has to be on slab and then some cities actually require you to build a garage. other states with wide open land may be different but I don't think the difference between a mobile home and a tiny home that's really a large shed would bypass any permitting process like I said you may already know that but it's something to definitely look into financially for your own expectations. but I'm really surprised about the people with the tiny homes who think they can just park it anywhere because somebody who owns land say okay.. I work for a home builder for years and I'm still in construction was on a jail construction build-out and now I work on government projects federal state county it was my job to read all the codes and all the regulations for everything. I really like the tiny home movement and people simplifying because really you only need a place to sleep a place to eat and that's about it but people have to be careful you may end up being told you can't live in the house that you put there. if you've already checked and no that's great and I find about 99% of the people who were putting blogs out here in videos haven't texted all day just start building their tiny home or their shed are there van conversion and then they try to find a place to put it permanently or if they traveled even Park in the wrong places like residential streets.
for insulation I would also look into what I've seen a few people doing their van conversions it's amazing it's old blue jeans shredded and redone in a way that it becomes insulation and one person said it actually works better than the phone or any other commercial insulation I want to look into it because I have a lot of chemical allergies
if you have a phone with phone service it's really cheap to add internet connection or like my plan already has it so that you can connect your laptop to your phone service just like it's a Wi-Fi I've been doing this for years cuz we moved a lot after I lost my job and supporting a child I even put an inverter and a printer in my backseat of my car and my car was my office. most all phone plans have unlimited gigs for internet now and all you have to do is hook up to it for $20 extra on a plan per month all four of my lines can now hook up laptops up to eight laptops to each phone... with no extra cost except for that $20 extra per month. so you could have friends over kids over and they can all hook up and use their laptops running off your phone. sometimes the movie streaming is not as good but I found out it wasn't really the phone it's the area you're in and how it hooks to the wifi signal or you can get a booster I researched that too but ended up moving so I have better service where I'm at now but a booster or repeater is better than the antenna actually the best thing you can get is a repeater for the signal. the repeater takes the signal from the tower and it immediately becomes a stronger signal for your phone and then the laptop with the movie streaming would work better. The reason I know about this is cuz I work on public projects and they are starting to put repeaters in apartment garages for safety for people who have to call nine-one-one because phones don't always work in underground garages. I know going to the library is fine I still go to a library once in awhile to but since you have snow and other things you could actually do your work on a laptop attached to the phone something to think about
Could you do a brief intro/recap at the start of your videos? Or put links to other videos that give an overview of the situation? I'd really like to understand your back-story a bit... have you lived in an RV for a while? Was the family couch surfing?? Have clicked through a few videos and there's always just enough info to leave me intrigued but still pretty confused about what is going on and why... Excited to follow you on your tiny house journey though!
We would LOVE to do this and are researching now, but keep running into legality issues with getting a certificate of occupancy. Is there lax housing code where you are, or are you guys finding a way to get around this?
We do not have electricity, water, or plumbing. We are researching as well go and by living completely off grid we can get around most of them in the short term. In time we will have solar to address the power, an outhouse for a bathroom, and an outdoor sauna/shower for hygiene that will be redirected to a swale with fruit trees in it. When you start plugging into conveniences that is when the local government finds out what you are doing and starts to have a foot to stand on in telling you know. We did get a permit to place the shed but it is just a shed, no nothing attached. We have a hand pump on the well and own the property so it is a very easy thing for us to walk into and be able to run with.
crazy ??? no but ya seemed a little stressed or manic ...lol ....... just found your channel when i was looking at off grid washing machines , no clue how long you guys have been bouncing around , going off grid next yr so power and internet might be spotty for the first yr , hopefully i can keep watching the progress ...... be glad youre doing this while your young , trying this in late 40's hurts alot more but the pocketbook is more flexible when you get older and more set up .
This plan offers a wide range of styles and sizes to choose from. From basic to fancy, many of the styles can be adapted to meet most needs. I would recommend this Plan to a friend. *_[ Check Details Here⇒>_**_https://docs.google.com/document/d/1AcDZ1m_jwjkRUixIdWP094kqa9Ipdo9FNtXC8DtMUZk/edit?usp=sharing_**_ ]_* good Guide! explains everything very clearly
I like the shed and what you guys are doing as a couple. I love the tiny house movement,yet people miss how important it is for your spouse to completely support the idea. Only thing is, with kids and no sewer. Sanitation would be an issue for me. How do you guys plan to combat that? out houses? no running water at all with kids?
It really sucks that you're not informing your viewers about the restrictions of trying to inhabit a shed classed structure. You're letting people believe that it is easy and legal. You're part of the problem.
UNLESS THE STRUCTURE IS GROUPED AS CLASS R YOU CANNOT LEGALLY MOVE THAT SHED ONTO A PROPERTY AND LIVE IN IT!! YOU WILL NEED TO HIRE AN ENGINEER TO GIVE YOU THE PLANS FOR RECONSTRUCTION TO MAKE YOUR SHED LIVABLE. JUST BUYING THE PLANS COULD COST 10K
