I know a lot of people have asked for an updated look at the property. I know I have been focused on the main projects the house and the solar shed. I hope this gives you a better idea of what the property looks like. 20 acres is a lot bigger than it sounds so I will try and have some more videos in the future showing other parts of the property.

Here are three new flavors by one of my favorite Paleo food companies Paleo Meals To Go. They are a mother and son owned company, and they definitely fit the Primal Power Method way of life. The new flavors I review are:
Here is episode #18 of my off the grid project. In this episode I show you my handy-dandy solar power shed. What is a solar power shed you may ask? Well, it is a shed where you house your alternative energy system equipment, and install your solar panels on. In addition, I use it for storage so it serves two purposes, thus the handy-dandy designation 🙂
Well, after watching this episode you will begin to see why I’m calling this season “Fixing Stupid.” I point out just a small part of what my now terminated contractor did last season. Needless to say, his work was some of the worst I have ever seen. With that being said, I’m knee deep fixing everything so I can start with a clean slate. So far me and a helper have spent a month and a half fixing all the crappy work (a generous description) my former General Contractor did last season. After thousands of dollars in materials, and hundreds of hours of labor, I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully in the near future I will begin starting on the next phase and leave this “Fixing Stupid” stuff behind.
Here we are again another exciting season with my “Off The Grid” Project. I’m calling this season “Fixing Stupid,” as some of you know I had to fire my contractor after numerous ethical issues and substandard construction.
Unfortunately the pain is just beginning, because of the numerous problems I have to correct before I can move forward with the project. In the end they will get fixed, but it will take more time and money. Funny how you hire a contractor to save time and money, but the opposite is what usually occurs.
