Ever dream of going off the grid? That’s exactly what this family did. Meet Doug and Stacy, my new favorite YouTubers. Take a tour of their off-grid cabin and see how they survive.
This couple was sick and tired of city life, and decided to go back to ye old ways by living off the grid on their very own homestead. This homestead is 100% self-sufficient. They built it from the ground up, they have no plumbing and no power. They survive using natural resources: Water, natural sunlight, and fire from candles and wood. Their food comes from their backyard, and their medicine comes from herbs. Follow their journey on YouTube: OFF THE GRID with DOUG and STACY.
