Update On My Off The Grid House Projects

by

Yep it is time to give a Gary off grid house update… so what the heck have I been up to you may ask? I’m back at my property in NE Washington enjoying the beautiful weather and quiet. There are numerous projects to get done this season, mainly rapping up the inside of the house. The good news is mainly the finish work is all I have left – trim, base boards, and just building some things to make my life easier. I needed a TV stand for the living room, but it had to be a certain height and width, and I wasn’t willing to pay $500 or more for a piece of crap made in China… off to get supplies I went. In the end it was well worth it, it only cost me a little over $100 and will match all my other trim. It was pretty simple I bought an off the shelf 30X30X12 unfinished cabinet from Home Depot, a piece of finished plywood and some trim. I think it came out pretty good see the pics below:

The Simple Life Is Here!

The Simple Life LogoI know it has been a long time since you’ve heard from me, but I’ve been busy at work with my website www.thesimplelifenow.com and book series “The Simple Life.”

For my loyal followers of the Primal Power Method, not much has changed, things have just gotten better… much better 🙂 My very popular supplement line is still available just under “The Simple Life” name, and I have also added some great products click here to check them out. As I have progressed in my mobile living and life simplification lifestyle, I noticed that I was going in many different directions outside of the more health leaning Primal Power Method model. So I decided it was time for a change in order to make it easier for people to understand my teachings, and also allow me to share more diverse information about bettering your life in general. This is an exciting time for me, because I have a lot of future plans to help people reach their  life simplification goals, which I will be sharing in the near future.

When it comes to dog beds I have had a ton over the years. Some were eaten or torn apart by my over rambunctious dogs, but most just flat out didn’t hold up. I have bought cheap ones and the more expensive ones promising easing cleaning, and that they would last a long time. I think the longest I have had a dog bed last is about a year.
