Doug and Stacy live the pioneer lifestyle in the 21st-century. The couple lives in a beautiful, DIY pioneer-style cabin and homestead their Missouri land. They have left behind all the trappings of modern life. The couple had never been to the garden and were not familiar with off-grid living. But they have learned so much since then and are now able to adapt to their incredible off-grid lifestyle. Their cabin building is without electricity, refrigerators, or electricity and only has gravity-fed water.
The couple lives in complete connection to their land. Through their YouTube channel, Off The Grid With Doug and Stacy, they have been documenting their homesteading experiences. Their off-grid cabin was built in only 90 days. Their log cabin feels far removed from the modern world but it brings them joy, peace, happiness. They show how tiny homes of pioneers still have a place today in society by building a little cabin. This video is a great inspiration, especially if your thoughts have ever turned to off-grid living.
Doug and Stacy were living in the city when the pace of life became too fast for them. They sold their businesses and bought a large house in the suburbs, and then moved to the country. Although you would think they had enough experience in off-grid living to make the leap, they didn’t. Doug actually built a log cabin using wood from the forest in less than 90 days. Stacy is an expert at cooking from scratch. Stacy raises most of her food on her own land. Together, the couple decided to live in a place without solar power or wind generators. They also rely 100% on a rain capture for their water. The couple has a better quality of life because they have reduced their carbon footprint and become more self-sufficient.
Their off-grid lifestyle means they have no bills and the couple doesn’t even have a mail box. They have a crawlspace under their log cabin building and designed the cabin building themselves. They don’t have any drywall inside the cabin, so they did not use any. Instead, they used sketches to design the cabin with a simple design of two boxes. You can see them building a root cellar. They also built an outdoor shower and a deck.
They are enjoying their off grid lifestyle and are proving that you can have your dreams with patience and determination. The cabin building is made entirely of natural materials, including wood, leather, and other natural materials. The cabin building measures less than 600 square feet. The couple also have a wood stove. The couple prefers fermenting to canning. This preserves the food for six months and allows them to eat fresh food.
