Off-Grid Living and Starting a Homestead from Scratch

Well, we have made it! We have completed our first month of living off the grid on our bare land while we develop our homestead. Time is moving so quickly and we are having a hard time keeping up with our homesteading blog, so we thought we’d do a roundup post of everything we’ve accomplished during month one. Hang on, it’s going to be a wild ride (and watch the video for the highlights, featuring one of our new favorite songs)!
