In addition, I just completely finished the inside of my off the grid house, see a couple pics below on some the projects I have been working on this season.
Simple living is easy, well easier than today’s modern lifestyle, but getting there sometimes is not. I know from the questions I usually get on the subject most people want to live a simpler and happier lifestyle, but they are not sure where to start. I must emphasize this – anytime you make a fairly drastic change in your life there is pain in the beginning – nothing that improves your life long term comes easy, it takes work and perseverance.
I have found there are two main things that stop people dead in their tracks when pursing what I like to call “The Simple Life.” I plan to expand on these two simple living killers in a future book, but I want to share some of the basics for you to get started on your journey of happiness, and freedom.
For those of who follow me or are familiar with my teachings know, I consider health and nutrition to be the cornerstone and key to living The Simple Life.
I always recommend to people interested in improving their life in anyway by starting with their health. Why? It is not because I’m a health guy, and former athlete, but because I have found that health is key to anything and everything to do with living the life you want. How are you going to improve your productivity, relationships, and your overall life if you are like most Americans – overweight, on multiple prescription drugs, problems sleeping, stressed out, depressed, and just flat out unhappy!
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:
When it comes to starting a life on the road in an RV, or using an RV for the occasional getaway the options today are pretty much unlimited. I would say if you dream it there is more-in-likely an RV for you in today’s market.
Now to the nitty-gritty—the different classifications of RVs. When it comes to the classification of RVs, this is where most people have the most confusion and the most questions. There are five major classifications of RVs:
- Class A
- Class B
- Class C
- Travel Trailer
- Fifth Wheel
