At 15 Square meters and completely off-grid, Brett Sutherland has constructed a true, tiny house treasure. Packed with unique, space saving design elements, Brett has created a fantastic space to both live and work.
Perhaps best of all, this was all achieved on a budget of NZ$21,000. The Tiny House was constructed on his parents property, and will soon be moved to a friends property in Bethells Beach in Auckland.
This modern tiny house is filled with treasures obtained over a lifetime of adventure, and may just be the ultimate bachelor pad.
As of tonight I am fully off the grid again, in my camper in the forest. You can read a bit more here: http://www.thediyworld.com/blog/?p=1147
I have been staying in a cottage on the property while moving into the off grid camper, which took me 5 months on grueling work. I had to hand carry boxes through the forest to the camper one at a time. Now I am finished and staying in the camper from now on.
It’s no secret that an opposition to sustainable living exists. Earlier this year, Texas state brought several SWAT teams to a sustainable community and threatened to shut it down. Each one of the community members were initially handcuffed at gunpoint. It was called “The Garden of Eden Community,” and was totally self sustainable.

This time, it’s Robin Speronis that’s come under fire. She lives off the grid in Florida, completely independent of the city’s water and electric system. A few weeks ago, officials ruled her off-grid home illegal. Officials cited the International Property Maintenance Code http://publicecodes.cyberregs.com/ico…, which mandates that homes be connected to an electricity grid and a running water source. That’s just like saying our dependency on corporations isn’t even a choice. The battle to live without most utilities has been ongoing for Robin, the self-sufficient woman has lived for more than a year and a half using solar energy, a propane camping stove and rain water.
Local governments often quash attempts by citizens to live off-the-grid. Those who generate their own power, grow their food and attempt to live sustainably can face fines and other penalties for unhooking from municipal services. The Environmental Protection Agency announced Monday new coal regulations meant to cut back on the nation’s carbon footprint, yet local governments penalize individuals who attempt the same thing. RT’s Lindsay France discusses these issues with self-sufficiency expert Lori Caraballo.

George talks with 2 gentlemen about a growing movement in the country…Living Free…Constitutional Revolutionaries, Patriots, Sovereign People, Off the Grid… the movement is characterized by many names. But in the end these people are seeking to be free, seeking to be free of rules, regulation and the bureaucratic reach of government in every aspect of our lives. Yes, they seem extreme, but let’s take a look further…they may have the keys to getting America back on track.
