This is a review of the Jackery Solar Generator 1000 (Portable Power Station with two 100W Solar Panels and also an announcement for their upcoming Black Friday Sale, which will be the best time to pick one up. The sale starts November 26, and ends November 30th, 2020. The E160, E240, E500, E1000, and the solar panels will all be discounted.
Jackery was kind enough to send us one of their solar generators to review which I’ve been toying with over the last week. It’s the Jackery Explorer 1000, or E1000, along with two 100W folding solar panels. This system gives you the ability to recharge your generator in as little as 8 hours, which then gives you the power for 13 laptop charges, 7 hours of refrigeration, 40 minutes of electric stove, or 76 hours of light, just for a few examples. It’s great for camping, outdoor activities, or even just to use green energy around the house in everyday life. You can use it to power your blender, juicer, power tools, and various other appliances. Something like this can also be handy for videographers, photographers, and podcasters on the go. So far, I love it. And I’m finding more and more ways to use.

Living in a tiny container house may not be for everyone. In a country where the average house size is 2400 square feet, most people could not imagine being in 160 sq. ft. or less. But creating a comfy, functional container home became an obsession for one person. Christoph Kesting, the creator of The Container House in Guelph, Ontario, sold his own home to finance the 18-month project.
It comes down to the basics. Everyone needs shelter, food, and water. In the modern world that translates to four walls and a roof, somewhere to sleep, a way to cook your meals, clean running water, a place to wash, and a method of disposing of your waste. Everything else is a luxury. Kesting and a group of volunteers worked together to transform the former shipping container into an environmentally friendly tiny home.
The Container Home is structured with mostly recycled or repurposed materials and gets its power from a large solar panel on the exterior of the box. Its structural design maximizes sun exposure with two large French doors. The home is also designed to be partially buried into the side of a hill to help with temperature control.

This is definitely NOT a tiny cabin but it’s still an awesome solar off-grid log cabin on 20 acres for sale in Michigan.
It has three rooms, one bathroom, and a large kitchen. The cabin is self sufficient with solar panels and is located on prime hunting land.
Even though it looks small in the photos, the total space inside is listed at 1700 sq. ft. including the loft space. Again, I know, it’s NOT tiny, and it’s hardly small, but I still thought you might enjoy it especially if you have a big family (or want a big family).
She kept part of the container as a covered outdoor porch area to keep the structure at 107 sq. ft. (10 square meters) so she can abide with her local zoning regulations in Auckland, New Zealand.
When you look inside I think you’ll be impressed with her interior design and layout choices. Brenda has managed to create a work at home office space, kitchen, living room area, a bedroom with a wardrobe, and a spacious bathroom.
This container home sits on concrete blocks for a foundation, it’s powered by two solar panels, and is even set up with a rainwater collection system.

I’m excited about building up a list of up and coming as well as current tiny house communities and in this post I’m introducing you to the 333 acre Sacred Mountain Sanctuary Eco Village which is in Candler, North Carolina.
It’s near Asheville (about 25 minute drive away) and it is a new permaculture eco village that is still being developed. Right now it’s possible to arrange a visit, stay in a cabin, and learn about permaculture.
