What does it mean to be off the grid?  The most literal definition is autonomy from traditional public utility services providing energy, water and sewer.  The term “off the grid” may also be characterized as a location in nature that is free from the stifling demands of our modern society.  For some, living off the grid becomes a full time life style choice where the comfort and convenience of municipal services and strip mall shopping centers are sacrificed in exchange for more freedom, less government and lower taxes.  For others, the off grid home becomes a temporary escape for working men and women and their families and a foothold in nature for outdoor recreational activities.  Regardless of your motivation, Off Grid Shelters has the skills and experience to help you plan for and successfully build your dream home or special use shelter.
