140 sqft Off Grid Office & Guest House; Breaking Ground

Welcome to the Living Off Grid section where we share pictures and videos of the updates we discuss in the Sow Edible Permaculture Podcast.  Todays update is from Episode 2, where we introduce our first Off Grid project, building the Tiny House inspired 10 x 14 Office/Guest House.  This 10×14 foot structure (yes that is 140 square feet) will include a full bath, kitchenette, bed, and office.

Here are the pictures from this weeks progress:

Choosing a location (for House, Office, and Solar array) and clearing the land.

You can see from the pictures below where the solar array is in relation to the Office/Guest House.  The Cleared land on each side was specifically calculated in order for the Solar Panels to receive the most amount of sunlight each day.  We will walk you through how to make this calculation in a future podcast.
