Man Living Off-Grid in His Incredible Self-Built Cabin

This man built a beautiful off-grid cabin with the help of friends for $65,000 CAD including the cost of the land.

27 YEARS Living Off-Grid on a Self-Built Island Homestead

Freedom Cove is a rare and very special place. It’s a man-made floating island that acts as a homestead, an art installation, and a home to Catherine and Wayne in Tofino, BC, Canada. The project started with a small float home that was built using wood that had washed ashore after a storm, and since moving into it in 1992, they’ve gradually added new buildings, greenhouses, and an outdoor dance floor to create a fully off-grid, floating homestead where they can grow most of their own food, earn a living as artists, and reduce their environmental footprint.

Living The Van Life: To find yourself, sometimes you have to lose yourself. On a much needed random van life road trip adventure, I found myself in an arctic blast storm system in the interior of BC with subzero temperatures making it my coldest camping adventure ever had in my van at -5ºF overnight. How to stay warm in the winter weather in your van? Vanlife can be a major challenge in winter. I give you some temperature comparisons during this winter storm to show you how my Chinese diesel heater keeps my Volkswagen Westfalia warm in the extreme cold weather.
