We are designers of off grid homes and specialty use shelters for a global client base

The business concept for Off Grid Shelters was inspired by our love of the outdoors, our dedication to sustainability and are years of experience in the residential construction and design industry.  Our mission is to make quality architectural design accessible and affordable to everyone who seeks it.  The integration of system planning into our work for energy, water and waste system solutions adds unique value to rural clients with limited or no access to public utilities


Our team includes architectural designers and engineers with over 10 years of experience in the residential construction and design industry.  We are experts in building science and believe a sustainable home is a durable home built with quality materials carefully selected for a home’s unique climate zone and weather conditions.  We are experienced with “green” certifications and can help you achieve LEED, ENERGY STAR or Passive House certification for your project. 


Our design approach involves an iterative process that translates your vision and ideas into a functional design that works well with your budget, your site and your site’s unique climate conditions.   We serve as your professional eye and will design your home to capture the desired aesthetic and architectural style you hope to achieve.  Our success is tied to the success of your project so we will serve as your advocate and trusted consultant through the entire process.



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.
