Thanks for stopping by our off grid cabin build channel. We recently moved from the city with all of its conveniences to the middle of the forest near Sandpoint, Idaho. On our channel, we are sharing our journey from grid life to an off-grid homesteading life. We are starting from scratch on bare land. I hope you will come and join us on this journey as we build our off grid cabin and establish our homestead. You can learn more about our story here <a rel=”nofollow” href=” target=”_blank”>

  1. I'd use either a Kohler or Briggs and Stratton if you don't go with the Honda motor. That coupling between the 2 shafts, is called a LoveJoy, used to connect 2 dissimilar shaft sizes. You could even use an electric motor for more quite and run it off the solar setup.

  2. Wow 😯 its really looking amazing. Great job team !!!! What will you do when theres nothing else to do? Sell it and start over? sure are saving a lot doing all the work yourselves. Just imagine how much you could sell it for. Cha ching πŸ’°

  3. I had a kindling delivery business when I was 10 years old, 55 years ago, My father would bring home scraps from cedar shake roof jobs. and I would split them up. I sold bundles that size for 25 cents! I made rubber bands from truck tire tube, worked great
