BOOK EXCERPT:

Off-grid isn’t a state of mind. It isn’t about someone being out of touch, about a place that is hard to get to, or about a weekend spent offline. Off-grid is the property of a building (generally a home but sometimes even a whole town) that is disconnected from the electricity and the natural gas grid. To live off-grid, therefore, means having to radically re-invent domestic life as we know it, and this is what this book is about: individuals and families who have chosen to live in that dramatically innovative, but also quite old, way of life. This ethnography explores the day-to-day lives of people in each of Canada’s provinces and territories living off the grid. Vannini and Taggart demonstrate how a variety of people, all with different environmental constraints, live away from contemporary civilization. The authors also raise important questions about our social future and whether off-grid living creates an environmentally and culturally sustainable lifestyle practice. These homes are experimental labs for our collective future, an intimate look into unusual contemporary domestic lives, and a call to the rest of us leading ordinary lives to examine what we take for granted. This book is ideal for courses on the environment and sustainability as well as introduction to sociology and introduction to cultural anthropology courses.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Would you like to live your best, uninhibited life, away from the crowds, the chaos, and the hustle of the city - all the while communing sustainably with nature, and reducing your carbon footprint? Does the idea of building your own reclusive utopia from the ground up call to you - but you're not sure where to begin? The Off-Grid Living Guidebook is written for the curious, wanderlust adventurer who is ready to make a leap into the wilderness. Alvin Tam shares his journey of leaving Las Vegas to live in the Canadian forest with his family, surviving two winters in an RV, and building a 1600 square-foot off-grid home with no previous construction experience. This guidebook is the ultimate starter map - an overview of the key elements to off-grid living that Alvin wished he had when he began planning his family trek into the woodlands. Learn about building design, water systems, electrical systems, natural resources, humbling building experiences, and more. Get ready to make your off-grid dream a reality. Go big - and go home! ALVIN TAM is not a builder by background - he discovered circus arts as a young adult and ended up performing all over the world with many different productions including the renowned Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas where he met and married his wife Jada. Together they had a son, and after journeying to Peru to host a yoga retreat, they decided that a more authentic life was calling, with a connection to nature. A few years later, they moved to British Columbia, Canada, bought land and started living off-grid in a 200 square-foot RV without running water. In the meantime, they prepared to build an off-grid house. Having no construction experience, Alvin leaned on the advice of wise builders around him, online videos, and his wits. They now live off-grid in a 1600 square-foot house in the forest and continue to learn the ways of the wilderness.

BOOK EXCERPT:

"Let's do this! How hard can it be?" And, with that, David and his wife Sally, in their mid-fifties, went from being white collar urbanites to living off the grid on a remote island in the wilds of west coast British Columbia, Canada. With no skills and very limited knowledge they built a life in the middle of nowhere by reading how-to books and doing things the hard way. In this lighthearted memoir they face the challenges of constructing their own home, providing their own water and electricity, and learning to live with the wildlife, including their few, but eccentric neighbors. This ten year journey from soft city dwellers to independent and self sufficient country bumpkins includes accidents, adventures, misadventures, how-not-to's and blood, sweat and tears. Their relationship evolves, as together they discover an immensely satisfying and totally new way of living life-off the grid.
