Off The Grid

I'm going to live off-grid. Read my blog and learn how to do it yourself!

Off-grid appliances: washing mashine

This is the first detailed post in the new series about appliances for off-grid living. Today I want to start with the washing mashines, as I think they are the most interesting.

I thought about it for some time and have a couple of ideas I want to share with you. (more…)

The lot I want to build my off-grid home at is not connected to sanitary sewers (it even doesn’t have access to public water supply!), so I will have to deal with wastewater on my own. I have a batch of ideas I will share with you here in a couple of next posts.

I wanted to write here a series of articles about my ideas of dealing with wastewater. One of my ideas is to use the composting toilets instead of ordinary flush toilets, connected to septic tank. This would allow me to save a bit of water (used for flushing those toilets), and reduce the amount of wastewater my off-grid house would produce.

And the best is that those composting toilets will produce compost, a very good additive for my future garden.

Before I write anything about why I want to use those composting toilets, first I want to share with you a great source of information about those toilets. (more…)
