Book Review: Creating Your Off-Grid Homestead: Radical Inspiration and Practical Advice

After buying my copy of the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle 2018 this week, I was going through the Gardening and the homesteading sections – which have 16 products in the bundle!

I started reading Creating Your Off-Grid Homestead: Radical Inspiration and Practical Advice by Teri Page. I have read her blog for some time now, and her book is part of the super bundle, and at $9.95 on Amazon, it makes buying the super bundle a deal – which is $29.97 through Monday night (tonight!). So if you have considered the bundle, don’t hesitate.

Now then, why would a homesteader need a book about homesteading? To learn more! I have found that learning from others mistakes can save me time, money and a lot of frustration. It’s also a comforting feeling knowing others have gone through similar situations.

What Teri and her family have done is more than we will (most likely) do with our land. It is though interesting to see how they went from homesteading in Oregon for 14 years, with a well, to moving to raw land in Missouri, and going fully off-grid – and doing this with small children, while homeschooling them.

Teri covers:

Why go off-grid, getting started (the planning phase), how much it can cost, and then chapters on water, shelter, outbuildings, heating and cooling, food storage and preparation, outdoor kitchens, how to cook and bake without electricity, root cellars, dealing with setting up off-grid electricity such as solar and generators, and then fun stuff of toilets, laundry, communications and animal care, and gardening and kids.

Yes, it is a lot she covers, but it is well broken down and easy to read.

Pick up her book – or pick up the bundle. You won’t regret it!
