Off Grid Life features a variety of unique homes, nicely organized into the following chapters:

  • Cabins
  • Yurts, tents, and huts
  • Earthships and underground structures
  • Shipping containers that have been renovated as tiny homes
  • Treehouses
  • Tiny homes
  • Boats
  • Vehicles, including truck campers, skoolies, vans, travel trailers, and beyond

In the Preface, Foster details his experience living off the grid, as well as the reason why it has become more popular in recent years. Rent prices have skyrocketed in urban areas, and it is more difficult these days to qualify for a traditional home loan.

“Nothing is without compromise. These structures all required some kind of compromise on the lifestyle many of us are used to—geographic compromises, size compromises, comfort compromises—but with these compromises comes the ability to live more economically, to make things ourselves, and to experience the natural world as more than something we watch on Netflix or scroll past on Instagram.”

Foster Huntington, Off Grid Life

Off Grid Life: Your Ideal Home in the Middle of Nowhere was published October 27, 2020 by Black Dog & Leventhal. It is available as a hardcover and as an eBook on Amazon.
