Many people dream of building off-the-grid on the water, but turning that dream into a reality will be sink-or-swim. From an underground home on a rock quarry to an oceanfront tropical paradise, these builds will be as incredible as their locations!
Some off-grid builders have years of experience while others have never picked up a tool in their life. But that won't stop these amateur DIY-ers from trying to build the off-grid home of their dreams. They will take on a straw bale home in Maine, a container dream home in Oklahoma, a Vermont stone cabin, a Hawaii dome home and a Montana earthbag retreat. Mistakes will be made and deadlines will be missed, but if these novice builders can pull it off, the results will be truly rewarding!
Building off the grid is all about sustainability. These builders are dreaming big while still living in harmony with Mother Nature, creating a Colorado solar abode, a Texas earth block ranch, a straw bale panel getaway, a green Rocky Mountain clubhouse and a Montana tiny house. Constructing an eco-friendly home won't be a walk in the park but if these builders are successful, the result will be a sustainable dream come true!
For some off-grid builders, there's nothing better than living at sea level, but others prefer the air a little thinner! From a snowy North Pole abode to a Colorado Rockies retreat, the rewards of building on a remote mountaintop are well worth it.
