Off-grid living tips from Maximus Ironthumper on Youtube

A friend recently introduced me to the excellent videos from Maximus Ironthumper, a normal bloke who bought a plot of forestry land using a loan, and built his own house on it. You can see a playlist of his off-grid how-tos here, and I’d really recommend watching them all if you fancy learning more about building an off-grid home.

He’s not exactly living in a shed, either – he has three ways to heat his home or cook, and underfloor heating! Solar panels play a big part in power generation, and he filters rainwater through charcoal to use for drinking.

Definitely give him a watch!
