Pat & Mel built this tiny house in Ontario, Canada as a way to stop paying rent, and to start living a simple, minimalist lifestyle.
They lived in it completely off the grid for 3 years while it was parked on a friend’s land, but they recently decided to sell the tiny home and buy a house because it was cheaper than buying vacant land (a down payment on a piece of land in Ontario is often 35%, while the cost of a down payment on a home is often as low as 5%).
While they were living in the house, they were completely off the grid. They used a wood stove for heat, solar panels for electricity, propane for hot water and cooking, and they collected rainwater for all of their water needs. They used a composting toilet (Nature’s Head) since they didn’t have access to a septic system.
This charming, cozy cabin has big lake views and plenty of room on this 1.15 acre lot. Everything you need with power in place, gravity fed fresh water from 3000 gallon tanks, top quality Nature’s Head self composting toilet & on-demand hot water in cedar lined shower house.1

This is an off-grid tiny library cabin in the Georgia forest!
Hello. we built this on a permaculture farm this last winter. An off grid library/ lounge in the middle of the Georgia woods. The project was completed in 2 weeks and cost about $2000. It is primarily made from recycled materiel. The major expenses were the wood stove and pipe, foundation and tin roofing.
