Building off the Grid: First Time Builders

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!
