Building Off the Grid Now Casting Nationwide

DIY Network's Building Off The Grid seeks one-of-a-kind, ultra-extreme, getaway-of-getaway projects nationwide!

Are you, or someone you know, planning a cabin/retreat build to escape the complexities of modern life? If so, the producers of the top-rated Building Off The Grid: Maine Lighthouse want to hear from you!

Off-The-Grid connotes a lot of things.  No electricity. No telephone. No roads. No people.  Building Off-The-Grid connotes another: not easy.  Those inspired to build in the middle of nowhere possess mad MacGyver-like skills, run on adrenalin and omit “can’t do” from their vocabulary.  Dorsey Pictures is presently casting build teams with extraordinary projects that are about to break ground with a budget and build schedule already in place.
