After finishing the Cabin, we decided to build an Off Grid Workshop. Link to Skull Bliss: https://shop.skullbliss.com/16vef6y6R use code CABIN50 for $50 off.
We needed a covered space to help us continue building all the projects that we will build in the next years. We started 4 months ago with the goal to build a very affordable and well designed space that could be built just by the two of us. And that it can be moved elsewhere in the future.
Started with the ground work, which we did all by hand, it was hard work but we saved the cost of renting an excavator.
Then we poured our very first concrete slab, it was our first experience with concrete, and as complete beginners we were very scared that day, but overcame our fears and went for it.
Once the concrete was dry we started framing the structure, which we completed in 6 days.
Finally were able to install the solar panels at their final location, after months siting on the ground. Having them up high will help them produce more electricity and stay cleaner for longer time.
And in the latest episode we finished cladding all the exterior using translucent corrugated panels, since we want this space to also work as a greenhouse to help us to grow food during winter, and to provide plenty of natural light to save on electricity.
This week we will complete the exterior of the building.
We will also be sharing the total material costs and finally after many weeks working on it behind the scenes we release the Workshop Layout and Structural kits, so you too can build this Workshop.
All of these while celebrating that we have reached 100.000 subscribers, all thanks to YOU.
