Welcome to the new site. Live the life you want to live.

Well I finally did it! I pulled the blog out of the free WordPress site and it is now a free standing blog!

I started this blog in 2010 to talk about tiny houses. A lot has happened in the last 6 years.

First off my wife and I have quit our jobs and become financially independent in our 40’s. We also sold our 3000 square foot house of 20 years and moved to the other side of the state to live on the beach. We downsized to a 300 square foot RV for the last year.

We are currently building a house the size of a two car garage.

We are mortgage free!

But enough about us.

I want to talk about you.

I created this blog for you.

This blog is to help you get where you want to be. Debt free and able to live the life you want to live. I will help you get there.

This blog is about debt freedom and financial freedom. Down sizing and living within your means. I will talk about how to get there. What to do to make the income to get there, how to save money and if you want to get there fast then extreme measures to make it happen fast. This is all about freedom and choice.

So I pulled this blog out so I can have the tools to help you get there fast.

I’m excited to be with you on this journey. I can’t wait to see your results .

What will you do when you are free to do what ever you want?

Let me know in the comments and be sure to subscribe so we can stay in touch.

This pretty much sums it up. If you live like your broke you can and will become rich. If you make material acquisition /wealth your aim your life will only be funded by debt. If you stop spending now you will be able to have whatever you want later.

Guerrilla off grid living.

off grid cabinGUERRILLA OFF GRID in 333 and a 1/3 square feet. Are you off grid, on grid or a hybrid? Would you like to be off grid? In some areas you are not allowed to be off grid. So you have to game the system. We were completely off grid this summer while we were waiting to develop our new homesite. If you are prepared for this it works great.




Our cost of living was very low. No power bill. No water bill. No sewer or trash bill. We had solar power with a generator as backup.

Off grid living teaches you to conserve your resources. You have limited access to water, power, heat, ect. We are now partially on grid. We have power but still have off grid water and sewer in the form of a well and septic system. Our power bill is about $40 a month right now during winter. Compared to $150 per month where we used to live.
We have continued to be very conservative of our resources over the last 8 months having learned to use less has been great.
We now live in an area prone to storms that can knock out power for a week or longer so we are prepared and used to living with little or no grid available.

The fact is we don’t want to be dependent on the grid so we have taken measures to minimize our use. Propane or wood for heating, lights and cooking. Water storage and backup power from a generator. Refrigerated perishable food storage at a minimum. We have an 8 cubic foot fridge.

This year we will plant an edible landscape and garden as well as raise a few chickens and rabbits. And finnish our 24×24 ft house.

We harvest free firewood from around us. Summers are cool enough to not need air conditioning. The ocean provides an abundance of food right out our front door. We are plugged into the power grid by law but we use less and less as time goes by. What are your thoughts and plans toward off grid living?
