This is a great book with lots of information. Your place doesn't have to be extravagant to meet your needs. It's also available for half this price from the simplesolarhomesteading dot com website.

I've found the information in this book to be, at least for me the best book I could find on the subject. It takes you through everything from buying land, building a cabin, to having a fully self sufficient homestead. I highly recommend this book to any interested in going off grid and needs a comprehensive guide. If you go on his website simplesolarhomesteading(dot)com you can buy his ebook for much cheaper.

This book gives great information and directions on living off the grid. I think the instructions are simple to follow and is easy to understand. I recommend this book to anyone just considering living off the grid. I am glad someone living the life finally wrote it all down.. not just a theory book, he practices what he writes about!!!

Nice descriptive book but it was printed from the web it appears! That really irks me when you see the information "link" that you need printed out on paper. Well the whole idea is off the grid but if your own "grid" goes down you won't have a link in real life to use for information. I'm torn between liking the book and using it for a wood stove fire starter. Research for yourself people . Don't take my word for it.

I believe that Lamar Alexander wrote this to genuinely help people learn to live extremely inexpensively. He explains everything in such a straight-forward and clear manner. He has a truly innovative mind, and offers various options/alternatives for saving money on homes/land, energy, appliances and so much more.

As to any negative reviews, you can pretty much tell what the book will be like by going to Lamar's YouTube channel (solar cabin channel) and website [...] If you don't like his style or think he is too basic, you will not likely appreciate this book. As a dedicated follower of the solar cabin channel I couldn't be more pleased.

I was worried that Off the Grid was was going to be short-sided and focused toward a specific type of off the grid builder. It's not. The book covers a wide range of topics around off the grid living and building. My biggest gripe is that it's uneven. Cabin building get a solid overview but batteries gets pages of details on how the chemistry works.
