I'm going to live off-grid. Read my blog and learn how to do it yourself!
Last week I went to my little house to record a video using a GoPro cam attached to my RC quadrocopter I just bought.
What can I say, the view is very nice, because the weather was fine that day. 🙂
You can see the plot is very narrow, but quite long. It’s the one with three rows of trees.
The summer is finally coming to an end. Just for a couple weeks more I’ll be able to spend the night in the house without freezing my butt off. Because of that we finally started to insulate the walls using mineral wool. I want to use the house all year round. 😉
Since the last episode:
From time to time I go on Google Maps or other similar sites to check for the new satelite images of my property, in good resolution.
A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon the new images on Google Maps. Not only those photos finally have better resolution, but also my tiny house can be seen. Or it’s roof, to be more specific. (more…)
Not so long ago I wrote here about my new deep cycle batteries. I also got a solar charge controller and two 10 Wp solar panels. One of those I am giving away on my other Polish blog to readers, the other is going to be used on my property for the composting toilet.
Almost 1,5 years ago I bought two 30 Wp panels. One such panel is now connected to the batteries via the charge controller. It means I have my own photovoltaic system, with large battery capacity and single small solar panel. (more…)
The least I wanted to have done by the end of the year was to close the building, something we call here in Poland: raw closed building. It should have all the walls, windows and doors. But not necessarily ale the stuff inside.
I was not able to spend 2-3 weeks in a row during the fall, so that I could build the walls using straw bales, and cover them with clay plaster. Because of that, I changed the idea significantly and decided to do something else.
What I wanted to do exactly is shown on the video below. And below the video you will find the translated transcript of the video. (more…)
