Deciding to live off grid is a very big life choice and it is not something that anyone should enter into lightly. This is especially true if you are choosing to live in an area of the country that you will be subjected to extremes in temperatures. The main reason for this is because living off grid usually means no connection to electricity, which means no air conditioning in summer or electric heaters in the winter. This DIY Project was designed to introduce you to the secret of building a winter cabin.
This Do It Yourself cabin project is from Pure Living For Life and the creators were looking to share how they recently built a winter cabin from scratch. Another part of their challenge was to build the whole cabin while keeping their expenses to a target number of $300. They did an awesome job and kept their costs to a minimum. Anyone that is thinking of building a cabin for themselves without spending or racking up a lot of expense can learn a lot from this article and video. The project was presented in a way that is fairly easy to follow, but it still does require a bit of DIY skills in order to complete it successfully.
