Off Grid Living in a 12 x 12 House

Most of you know that I live in a small apartment (about 500 square feet). This past week I finally put up some shelves that really helped make the place look and feel nice. Mainly my work area. Actually you can see exactly what I did here if you want.

On my last trip to the library I was so happy to stumble onto 12 by 12 by William Powers, have you heard of it?

I’m about 70% finished. Ever since I’ve been reading it it’s really got me wondering about putting together my own tiny off grid home near to where I currently live.

I’d be able to learn a lot and enjoy nature while still having my city apartment. We would use it to get away, write, read, relax, enjoy nature, and explore what it’s like to live without modern utilities.

I won’t ramble on about it, but the book really does get you thinking.

My next step is figuring where/how to go about getting a good place to do something like this in my surrounding area. Any ideas? South Florida.

This is what the book looks like:
