In this video by Living Big In A Tiny House, we are treated to a guided tour of a spectacular “high end” homebuilt off-grid cabin in a stunning riverside location in New Zealand.
Turns out that the owner is a builder by trade, so he did all the work himself. The property is truly off grid – generating solar power and harvesting their own rainwater. This was a necessity due to the lack of utilities.
This is a very stylish cabin with a custom wooden interior and all manner of fancy features. Everything is striking and is set up in the style of a romantic retreat – however the real clincher is that a property like this is actually inexpensive relative to the cost of regular purchased housing.
My only critique would be the very extensive use of plywood – not because of the look, but due to the fact that it off-gasses formaldehyde which is a known carcinogen; however the amount of off-gassing fades over time. If you are going to use plywood in this manner, I would suggest to purchase the ply as soon as possible, before you are going to use it, and store it in an outbuilding with stickers or some other form of spacing that enables it to breathe and off-gas for as long as possible before use.
I like the mezzanine layer – always a stylish touch as well as a good way to make the most of the available space. The mezzanine enables a double-height ceiling in the main space, which adds a grand touch.
Finally we learn that the overall cost was around $150,000 (I am guessing that is New Zealand dollars (NZD) which converts to around $92,600 USD at the current exchange rate.

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
