There's electricity out at my place now but there wasn't when I bought the land 15 years ago. The road is paved now too, I was just as happy without either, truth be told. I'll never have city water, sewer or garbage so I catch rain for washing, pack drinking water from a spring a couple miles down the road and of course, there's ye lil ole outhouse.I really like your album pictures. there is a show on TV called buying Alaska. Very interesting on some of the off- the- grid homes. I presume you are not that far out in the wilderness.
I did, however, live quite remote in my 12X22 floathouse anchored at the other end of the island for many years once my kids were grown. Totally off/grid and pretty much self sufficient. It was fun at the time but too much work anymore. The floathouse is still my part-time home tied to the beach in front of my little cabin. I'll put some photos in the album for you to see.
