12/30 Do You Want to Start a Homestead? (Frozen Parody)

Off grid homestead of Jesse and Alyssa

Off grid homestead of Jesse and Alyssa

We are Jesse and Alyssa and we just recently (September 2015) bought 5 acres of land in a remote area of the country [Idaho], are going to build a home, live off-the-grid as much as possible, start a garden, and work on becoming debt free. Eventually we want to get away from needing money at all but in the meantime we will be working to reduce our overhead as much as possible.

To start things off, we are living in a travel trailer while we develop our land and get ready for home building. We built a structure to protect the trailer and make us feel a little more at home. As we create cash we will invest in a full solar setup, drill a well and install septic.

Over time we will think about the type of house we want to build and start collecting homestead tools and materials. Ideally we will use lumber from our land and find reclaimed construction materials at a reasonable cost.
