This is Exploring Alternatives’ Mat & Danielle’s new, DIY van conversion that’s based on a high top 2015 Ford Transit Van.

They’ve been living, traveling, and working out of their own van conversion for a while now, and have recently had the opportunity to upgrade to a customized van conversion which you’re getting to see right here and now. Yes, they designed and built it themselves and I think you might find this to be one of the most beautiful and most well thought out van conversions out there. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Beige has been living fully off-grid in this tiny Mongolian yurt from Groovy Yurts for over 2 years now.

She doesn’t have electricity so she uses candles for light, she has a woodstove for heating and cooking, and she hauls in water from a nearby spring.

The only item that needs electricity is her phone, which she can charge in her car on her way to and from work.

This is a 100 sq. ft. off-grid micro cabin on a foundation in Portugal.

Mat & Danielle from Exploring Alternatives recently had the chance to spend a few nights in this extremely tiny off-grid micro pod in Portugal.

They filmed a full video tour (see below) and you might be surprised at how comfortable the space is considering it’s only 100 square feet.
