During the winter months of 2014, we decided to build (and live in) an off the grid yurt. Days later, we found a woman selling her Shelter Designs yurt on YurtForum.com that lived only 15 miles from our home. We put down a deposit immediately. We spend the next few months helping to disassemble the yurt, carefully labeling each piece so that we could reassemble it again on our property.
Throughout the summer of 2014, we re-built the yurt on our property. By September, we were living in it full time and off the grid. In 2015, one of our sponsors, Goal Zero, came out to film a video about our life that we think is pretty sweet. Enjoy!
