Should I Homestead OFF or ON GRID?

  • Is it better to start on grid and work your way off?

These are the questions we get on a regular basis at An American Homestead.

In this article we carefully break down the ins and outs of what it could mean to live the off grid life. This is not something you should just jump into because you saw someone else doing it or maybe you have some romanticized view of living like Daniel Boone. There are many considerations that you have to keep in mind especially with any family that you are bringing along for the ride. And it will be a ride.

There is no doubt that a life and home off grid is stressful, especially for a wife who has lived with most of the modern wonders that a 21st century America can bring. Don’t get me wrong.

I’m just trying to give you some things to think about before you jump head first into the deep end of the pool.
