Off Grid Shelters teamed up with the creaters of the HabiFrame® Storm Shelter to integrate their inovative storm shelter into one of our designs. The HabiFrame® in-home and stand-alone storm shelter meets the National Storm Shelter Association (NSSA) accepted Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and ICC-500 (International Code Council) guidelines for tornado resistance.  The key to the HabiFrame® in-home storm shelter’s success is its unique wall panel construction. The panels are created with LP® SolidStart® Laminated Strand Lumber (also known as LSL) framing beams.  The Recluse Retreat features all the ammenities needed for off grid survival including renewable energy and rain water harvesting systems.  It contain two Habiframe "secure zones" within the house.  This design also includes a full basement for additional storage space and or secure, below-grade sleeping quarters.   


Design Features:

Solar Photovoltaic (PV)

Water conserving fixtures

Low maintenance materials

Rain water harvesting

Draught resistant landscaping




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.
