Our friends at the Advanced Living Project are doing just that. They have taken the huge leap of faith and started what some people can only dream of doing by actually living on self reliance and off the grid. They have now decided to expand and create a a place where others can do this. If you have seriously considered to live off the grid or have a place where you can, then you may want to check this out because it is a very attractive offer from these wonderful folks.
Here is what they are offering (a pretty sweet deal to boot), to someone who wants to take that leap of faith:
We have a house, greenhouse and small cabin on 10 acres, with well
rights (good, deep well) near the house. The house is
cinderblock/adobe/stucco, comprised of one 20′X24′
kitchen/lvingroom/bathroom and a 16′X16′ bedroom. There is a large
woodstove in the bedroom that provides heat for the whole house, and
a wood cookstove in the kitchen. The house is furnished with Kitchen
table, cabinets and countertops, pantry and closet, and queen size
platform bed. There is a 16′X8′ Deck. The well has a deep-water hand
As of this date there are 4 cords of cut firewood included. There is
also a ranch-only (not registerable) 1985 Ford F-150 included.
Solar is high efficiency 205 watt solar panel and two 6-volt golf cart batteries for 12 volt system.
The small cabin is 8′x8′, two-story with metal roof. The greenhouse
is 8′X16′. A small chicken coop is also included.
The land is 20+ miles from paved, road and very private. It borders
NM State and BLM land. Abundant game, antelope, elk, deer, rabbits.
High Chaparral land (7000+ ft.) with beautiful mountain views.
Abundant firewood available. Surplus building materials included
(OSB, some 2×4′s, and lots of PVC pipe and connectors etc.)
We have satellite internet set up which we will be happy to transfer
I’m sorry, we do not have a camera, but you can see the view from
our front door at http://fightingfirewithwater.com.
The lease is a 99 year lease, $25,000. If you do not want the house,
we can lease you empty land to build on. We are very eager and
motivated, hence the low price (we have put many times more than the
price into the land, house, well, outbuildings, etc.).
We are available for text chat via skype. If you would like to text
chat, let us know when and we will be ready or contact us at
