Off Grid property saved us money and was exactly what we wanted to build our cabin on.
We built our small off grid solar cabin with easy to follow plans from Tiny House Designs. I chose them because they have the most detailed complete plans out there for small cabin owner builders with little to no building experience.
Tiny House Designs offers many off grid cabin plans of all different types for a low price of $9.95.
Some future plans for our off grid cabin include a wood-fired sauna in the woods, outdoor shower either solar or wood heated, a tree house for guests, and a camping spot to pitch a tent above the cabin on the hill.
I made this 3d model of our small cabin to know how things would look when the porch roof and deck were finished. It’s easier for me to visualize things in 3d and Google Sketchup makes it so each to draw. Another benefit is all the lumber and board spacing is to scale so it makes a handy materials list. Just count the boards.
Here is the near finished deck project below.
